I had a sad little shadowbox which needed some background love:



I got into making inchies recently after drooling over Phizzychick's inchies and much stalking  Wink So I came up with these, being my 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th inchies ever!  Grin



And here's what they look like in their new home:



Gratuitous 1st inchie shot  Grin (My initials)





I'm still meh about the exterior and the bottom left inchie, but I like it. Will probably jazz up the outside with paint. Comments and crit appreciated! Thanks for looking!

I love it! It looks great! I personally love the frame as is, because it puts all the focus on the center, but that's just me. Either way, it looks great!

Fantastic! I love elephants, and I love how you used two differnt types, the paper ones and painted wood? ones! Really great! And Phizzychick is such a fantastic and inspiring artist! I think painting the exterior in the same design as the elephants might be a great touch!

Thankyou so much for the comments!

The wooden elephants were souvenirs my father got from Sri Lanka a long time ago. They were originally meant to be hung up with string, to make a mobile of sorts I think. But I felt they needed to be "displayed" somehow  Smiley

The inchies were inspired by the elephants, they're just too darned cute!  Grin The frame is 4.5" x 4.5" which I got from Wilkinsons (UK)

Have a great day everyone!  Cheesy

It's really cute. I'd leave the frame exactly the way it is now - the bright colour complements the bright colours on the elephants without being a distraction from them.
