I managed to get my blue inchie frame finished!!!! Most of the inchies were crafted by fellow craftsters and exchanged as part of some craftster inchie swaps. I also probably made about 50 of these inchies myself - including the last 35 to finish the project.

The frame came from a garage sale, and although it was already blue, I added some pearlesant blue paint to make it shine. It contains 396 inchies.



Contibuting craftsters were:
Yumjello01, Howlovely, LlisaRedd, Calluna, Eamea, Oodelally, Pogo, Rainfallingonatinroof, Robinpich, Mandys_momma, Kimchery (and her son), Mini_mum, Melmakespretty, JillHogan, Smmart, Seeuudee, Oddments&tweaks, Mod35Tbabe, Crazyalien8, quasior (and her son), Audio, carole73,  C*Lientje and Krismith. My appologies if I have forgotten anyone.

ETA - I forgot to mention Skittlebub, she made the blue origami star for me - I can't make these to save myself! It's in the top left picture near the bottom of the photo.

Thank you all for swapping with me and making these amazing wall art projects possible.

Here are a few closer pictures:



Eta again - I just recieved 6 amazing blue inchies from Phizzychick in a personal swap, so I'm off to remove some of my dodgy creations and add hers!

Here is a photo of my purple inchie frame that I completed last year. My next plan is to do a black and white one.

I just came across this post. It's neat to see what you've done with your inchies. And, it's cool to see how many people have contributed! That's got to be some sort of inchie record! Smiley I'm excited to see the b&w one when you get that completed...I was lucky to contribute to that one!
