I was broswing this board recently, late at night I might add when I stumbled across Inchies. Never ever browse Craftster late at night unless you want to get bitten by the crafting bug. I could barely keep my eyes open but I found myself drawing out a grid and getting stuck in. Thankfully I managed to pull myself away long enough to get a good nights sleep.

Anyway, I have been bitten buy the Inchie bug, as well as other things.  Cheesy I'm quite new to paper craft, as my main crafts are generally illustration, shrinky dinks and felt. Never the less I decided to give it a go. I've yet to try decoupaging them, I figured I'd first try my Illustrations first.

I'd like to share a gift I have made. This is for my Cousin and her first born child Oliver. I've always wanted to try my hand at something that could be displayed in a nursery room. They are very straight forward and simple Inchies, but I'm super pleased at how they came out. I just have to post it now.  Smiley

They are made from Bristol Board, inked with Fine liner and coloured with markers.

The photo below are some other Inchies I have made. These ones are actually my first attempt. I used 140 Ibs / 300 gsm Water colour card, used Gauche to create a wash and then once they had dried added in the details with brush pens. They were great fun to doodle.

I shall definitely try other mediums at some point, and I have another set already on the go. Thanks for looking!

These are great! I've never even heard of Inchies, but the idea looks fast, fun, and an easy way to make doodling into art.

I love the nursery room picture. And little Oliver will love it too. He'll have fun learning the animals on it. Great job. I especially like the earth-to-sky background, as it really ties it all into a cohesive whole.

And, yes! Isn't craftster more dangerous at night? I've found myself on here way too long many, many times.

Post more pics, as these are inspiring!

The inchies you made for Oliver will serve many different purposes, which is great. It'll make a cute wall hanging, and help him when he's a bit older learn how to spell his name, learn about animals, natures and colors. What a great idea!
