inchie canvas


Most of these inchies are from swaps.


One swap was hosted by Jana--she was an awesome
hostess--I didn't even open the super cool
clear package she sent until making this canvas,
as it was a work of art unto itself.


The other was hosted via Art42 by the lovely
Faith Marie.

The inchie challenge at Gingersnap Creations
inspired me to crack out these little cuties,
and actually do something with them. It's a
6x6 canvas, with Diamond Glaze and microbeads
as "caulk" between the tiny inchie tiles.


Which is similar to how I finished off this
inchie treasure box
, some time ago, using inchies
I had made, plus many from this swap at art-e-zine.

I really have a thing for inchies right now;
if you have an inchie project posted, please
leave me a link; I'd love to come see!
:)

Update: Thank you, Gingersnap Creations, for
the choosing the inchie canvas as a Ginger Gem!
