I wanted to make some extras to put into a swap package, and my partner liked inchies, so I finally made some.  These are all handdrawn and then colored in with watercolor brush pens:



I had no idea how fun it would be to confine my art to a teensy tiny space!

Those are so cute!  You are a great artist.  I wish I could draw like that.  Your partner is lucky!

I made my first inchies a couple of week ago and did not realize how big a square inch is  Roll Eyes

I am definately hooked now.

These are all so cute! I especially love the blue monster and the bicycle.

I just made my first inchies tonight and you don't realize how small they are by looking at these pictures. They feel so much smaller when you're actually creating one!!

You fit some great work onto those tiny papers Smiley

Thanks so much, craftyhsmom and LimeRiot!  I totally agree with both of you, when you're looking at inchies you don't realize how tiny that space really is!  It really forces your creativity in new directions, doesn't it?
