Inchies are...

... Mini collages that measure just 1" square. I found a baggy of them while rummaging the other day. I had gotten them in a Christian Paper Artists swap. When I first got them, I didn't have any ideas for using them, so they languished for several months. Now I can't put them away! I am having SO much FUN! Because some of the pieces are warped, I have been using pop dots for mounting them and I like the added dimension of their shadows anyway. Here I altered some boring boxed note cards and made something more interesting. I never buy blank cards at the hobby store when I can find cards and envelopes at garage sales and thrift stores for next to nothing.

The next inchie swap I'm participating in (also for
CPA
) has a "birdie" theme. If you would like to join, there is one more day left to sign up. Art is due March 14 (I think).
