I have seen just about everything done, but personally, I prefer original art or collage work and not too much dimension as I like using them for cards or to frame...I have been looking at the gallery to get inspiration but I already know what I am doing! I can't wait to get started!  One inch sure is small...I cut out all my bases today!

I use the cardboard that is used inside my fat quarters from Joann's fabric--cheap and easy to cut yet sturdy!!  Also, after cutting out a few, I realized it would be easier if I glued the paper on first, then cut! Newbie mistake, I am sure! ha ha

Actually I cut out my bases first and then cut out my backgrounds and do it that way. I also water color some backgrounds.

so, as works of art, they can be made out of anything and then put on an inch plateform?  Like, can it be made out of macaroni or shells or flowers pasted on?  or does it have to be only drawn or painted?

Yup, inchies can be made of anything as long as it's stuck to that inch x inch square.

Try and remember about posting things internationally though. For example, I know that you are not allowed to send plant matter to Australia...

I managed to get 10 inchies done today! I also spent some time looking up new image transfer techniques and such.

oh thanks!  I was thinking after I posted that that would only work if I wanted some sort of theme as all of the paper would be the same! ha ha

I want to also watercolor some sheets and also experiement with tracing papers and some handmade paper (which I am busy making with all of my ATC scraps!!  What a mess! ha ha)

I'm kind of wavering on whether to do this or not.  I've only done one swap so far, and am in the middle of my second, and 49 inchies seem a lot.  Do they seem harder to do because of size, you know, the smaller anything is the less room you have to work with?

I did about 10 in a hour yesterday. Then I tried a new technique last night and got another 5 or so done. They really don't take long. Depends on what technique you want to do.
