Back to Inchies
I am back to getting some inchies done. This week we had a guest designer over at Inchybyinch blog . Jeanette Waters of H20 Creations suggested we do inchies in black and white reversal. Well, two of mine are real reversals - the roses. The other two are from our big snowstorm this winter (about 4-6 inches of snow - a lot for us!). One is my black dog Sambo against the white snow and the other is a snow-covered tree against the night sky. One way or another, I think I fit the theme.
I used photos for these inchies, played with them in PhotoShop Elements and shrunk them down before printing them out. They just seemed like postage stamps to me today (maybe because they were photos) so I cut them out with wavy scissors and edged them with black marker.
Come on, give it a try. These can be made in your favorite medium whether it's beads, drawing, embroidery, stamping, quilting or whatever. Just one teeny little inch and you are done. And you feel good for doing it too.
