Thank you for the comments on my inchies, I will be making a lot more soon. In the meantime here is my very first skinny I made today. They are like atc's only a little bigger (3x5 inch). Anyways the theme was vintage with butterfly wings on it, I like how it turned out.
To make it I used metal repair tape for the top and put alchohal ink on top of it. The background is made up of various paper bits like sheet music painted with watercolors. I used gem stone thingies from my collection and that little puzzle piece was a found object on the sidewalk yesterday. The image is of my grandma and the wings I cut out from a greeting card. Thanks for lookingand I will probably make more of these skinny things soon. Cheesy

Some more inchies, these were a labor of love. First off here is the tutorial that I used for my inspiration:http://dotslifeandart.blogspot.com/search/label/tutorial
These are made out of fabric, felt, little beads and other little charms. It took forever sewing each little bead on and my family started to think i was nuts but I love how these turned out.


As always thanks for looking. Smiley

More inchie madness.
These were done with watercolors and a sharpie for outlining and other embellishments were added as needed.

Wow great inchies!! You are so talented.  I, too, love making inchies, but I am forcing myself to take a break so I can turn a bedroom into a craft/sewing room.  I'm praying for self-disclipine (is that something that is rare in the artistic world?)

Well after many months of inchie making, i collected quite a few and wanted to display them in a nice way. My solution, a can of pretty blue spraypaint and an old bulletin board. Get sticky tack and put the inchies on it. It is now hanging up in my room and i love the way it sparkles.

 I really love it! What a great conversation piece. You could really pour over it for quite a while. Are you going to fill in the edges, or just start a new one?
