Panthermoon, I love the effect with the doilies.

MareMare312, I love the textured backgrounds.  I wish I had someone to show me how to do mod podge well.  My attempts have been messy and poor.

Phizzychick, you are making me rethink how I do my watercolor backgrounds.  Yours are beautiful and more brilliant.  I hope mine turn out half as good as yours.

My inchies will primarily be watercolor background, some with stamps on top and then drawing with the prismacolor pencils I bought this week.  I am mostly done with one inchie, but I think it needs something more.  I wasn't thinking about the fact that I should have done my watercolor on the smooth side of the sheet.  The pencil doesn't work supergreat with the rough side that I did the watercolor on.  Again, this weekend will be my primary working weekend for inchies.  I will post progress shots then.

Thanks! I'm sure they will!

I think that the bright colours though are down to the paints themselves. I've used other sets and have found them slightly more dull. That works well for some work, but not for others Smiley

WOW!!  I am loving everyone's inchies.  I have been watching but haven't been able to work on any...I have 2 swaps ahead of this one and I am forcing myself to finish those before I start...MUST FINISH OTHER SWAPS...

But I am excited about this one!  I think once all my beauties arrive I am going to put them on an embelished canvas, YAY!!!

panthermoon - so pretty! love the rich color.

maremare312 - love the textures! and colors!

Phizzychick - OMG - how very wonderful!

Will cut up some of the wild colored ones and see what happens Smiley
I did use some of the wild colored background for some leaves on a mixed media tree atc and it looked much cooler cut up.
thanks for all the kind comments.

i was thinking about how to "hang" my inchies so I can still read the backs...I have some gummed glassine hangers that are used for stamp collecting that I think will work great!

Here's what I was playing with yesterday. I used acrylic on thin chipboard.



Then I picked out some of the neat ones:


I'm trying to figure out where to go from here. What works well over acrylic? I tried colored pencil but it sorta 'sunk in' and wasn't very noticable. Stamps and my pitt pens work nicely but, they are black and grey... hmm...

I'm also thinking of doing some collage ones. I have a 2007 'kittens everyday' calender that has some great tiny pics of kittens!

Cool rainbow! I love the greens and yellows. Have you tried coloured gel pens? Though I think some work better than others. Also, watercolour pencil crayons tend to work on acrylic pretty well (just used as normal ones) if the normal ones are giving you a hard time.

I was totaly inspired by CraftyMcCrafterson's doodles. I did this at work yesterday. I won't use it for this swap but I realy liked the way it came out.

I'm cleaning out my fabric stash for the Fabric Scrap swap and hope to be inspired by the tiny bits I save for no reason. Except that now I have a reason for it!
