So I've been thinking of making some inchies for a while, because they're all just so darn cute! I've really enjoyed all of the inchies people have been posting!

Tonight I finally sat down and got started on some!
I graphed out the lines on some scrap watercolor paper I have, and cut them apart.... When I started looking at some of the squares I had made, I noticed the blocks and blobs of color looked like little monsters who had taken some haphazard pictures! So, I used a hole-punch and made some eyes, glued them on and inked some details to complete what I thought they looked like...

Enough of my babbling... here are the wee-monsters:

Sorry that's blurry... =/




I think the crabby looking one on the upper right is my favorite... but I also really like the one with purple yarn hair...

I didn't make many, because I just wanted to try my hand at it... but I do really like them!
Next time though, I think I'll work with more depth and texture!

Well, thanks for having a look!

I thought they were cute to begin with, then you tell me that the monster head shapes just happened when you cut the paper = EVEN BETTER! Love them Smiley

And I agree. Can't wait to see what you make next.
Ooh and if you have any googly eyes those would look neat too.

Great inchies and what an exciting way to discover them!  I don't know if you meant it this way, but I can picture the monster  holding the camera outstretched in his hand trying to take a picture of himself.  Or maybe herself for that matter!

Great job!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

That's exactly what I thought they looked like!
