I did my first set of inchies for the April Birthday Swap! I had a lot of fun trying different techniques. I never knew an inch squared was so small LOL!! Here they are! C&C Are always welcome!!

The lot of them:


The first row is done with one of my watercolor backgrounds, with flower brads for a spring look.
The second row is Alice in Wonderland inspired, with altered playing card backgrounds.
The third row are tree inspired, with upcycled book page backgrounds.
The fourth row are bright pop art inspired, with sead beads for texture.

I would have never guessed that this is your first attempt at inchies. I think they all look great. I've always loved the look of text as a background. I like the texture of the beads, too, especially the tree. And I love how bright they are!
Too bad you're not in the inchies swap.

Holy crap Luna, you put my first inchies to shame! Grin

I love them to bits, especially the tree ones, since I'm a bit of a tree fanatic! I love that you used so many techniques on all of them. Really stunning stuff. Cheesy

I really love the tree ones, but they are all great.  Smiley they don't look like you're new to inchies. the seed beads were a good idea too, I like that you used all different techniques.

These are really pretty! I've been looking for something to do with an old set of encylopedias, you've inspired me with the paintings on printed page! I've never made inchies before, after seeing these, I really want to!

What great ideas.  My favorites are Row 3.  I love the combination of drawing on top of text.
