My first official "inchies"!!!


I couldn't resist a small swap of inchies with this color theme.  I've been attracted to these little squares since they first started coming out in popularity.  Something about the size and how they look together in a grid-like format.  I  have often used 1-inch squares in artwork but these are my first made to trade.  Anyway, these are fused bases with TLS using paper scraps, skeleton leaves, punched leaves, vintage tatting and lace, chiffon, onion skins, fabric, and  bits of a vintage tape measure.  Once cut up into pieces, every square is completely different except for the identical charm on each.  They feel cool too!

I really like your inchies. Are you going to put the ones you get back into one piece?> I sure hope you're keeping one for yourself.

These are very cool inchies, Angie. I love the colors and the whole look of the piece. You sure used a lot of interesting stuff to make these.

And BTW, what is TLS?

I made some inchies out of caulk that are posted on my blog, in the 3-9 thru 3-16 archive. I made up a bunch of those for future use in other art pieces. The inchies intrigue me.

Love your use of Basic Grey paper and your still shots of the flowers and butterflies are fabulous.

Those are great inchies! Aren't they fun? I have some on my blog from swaps I did last year. Let me know if you ever want to trade.

I love inchies too! These ones are fantastic - I love the very beautiful effect you have achieved from that amazing concoction of materials in the base!!
