Inchie Insanity

These are two sets of "inchies" that I just completed. Inchies are just that: 1 x 1 inch pieces of art. Insane! But so much fun. These are for a swap on the Art Techniques group. I made some extras to keep and incorporate into my own art.

The first set are fabric inchies. I made a base from scraps that I had from making Baby's large African wallhanging quilt. I sewed them onto peltex with decorative thread, and added some more stitching and Razzle Dazzle thread. Then cut them up into 1 inch squares, and zig-zagged the edges. I have since added a little metallic square brad to each, but didn't rephotograph.

The second set are paper inchies. I did them on a fusion base that I wasn't crazy about after I had finished it. But when you cut it apart, it looks totally different. I added some flower sequins and made squiggles or dots with dimensional paint. I love the sequins!

the inchies are great. I was looking for some because I have to make 26 about the letter "C".
I was thinking about crazy inchies.
I saw yours and I think it's possible. Thank you for showing.
