Before getting started on the Inchie Swap, I had a grand idea for hubby's music room. Things didn't turn out quite like I had planned, but it works.
These are hubby's favorite song writers, and it's an eclectic bunch! In case you can't recognize them, they are, from left to right:
Row 1 - Willie Nelson, Chrissy Hyndes, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Stevie Ray Vaughn
Row 2 - Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Paul Simon
Row 3 - Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, John Lee Hooker
Row 4 - Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, James Taylor, John Lennon
He wanted Jim Morrison too, but that would throw off the balance.




I was going to put lyrics behind each portrait, but couldn't get it to look right. I Printed the portraits on transparency sheets, printed out the colored backgrounds, and taped them to the transparency. Then I ran the whole thing through the scanner. I mounted them onto small wooden squares, then onto a 6"x6" canvas painted purple. I think this looks fine, and hubby best think so too!

That looks fabulous!!!  You'll have to put hubby in the dog house if he doesn't like it, but I'm sure he'll love it.

Thank you for your kind comments - I wish you could see this in real life - SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much nicer than the pics let on. The inchies were thickly glazed after attaching them to the wood pieces, and the painted canvas isn't splotchy looking. The wide shot is truer to the colors than the close-up, even though I tweaked the colors the best I could. .......Oh well............
