because sometimes i finish a project BEFORE bedtime... (not often, but it happens!) ...and i still want to play! plus, making inchies is way more fun than putting away all the little leftover bits and bobs, right?!
(patterned paper: basic grey, scenic route, sei, love elsie, vintage sheet music, pages from a japanese workbook; words cut from book scraps; cardstock: core'dinations; transparency: (doesn't this make COOL INCHIES??!?!?) hambly; embellies: doodlebug paperfrills & brad; mambi gems; queen&co felt; creative imaginations rub-ons; circle heart stamp: tyggereye art; punches: marvy, mcgill, ek success, martha stewart; inks: colorbox; pen: zig; foam tape: 3m)
i made this weird little paper-pieced element, because the stamp was out, and i had a scrap of white patterned vellum, and a scrap of sparkly pink, and...well...it just had to be done!
(stamps: pink paislee & unknown unmounted music definition; papers: core'dinations, doodlebug, paper co; inks: colorbox, ranger; foam tape: 3m)
i invented the *ROUND* INCHIE!!!!!!
or, at least, i think i did; i mean, i've not seen such a thing anywhere else, but for all i know the online galleries have been full of them for six months and i'm the last to find out! :) anyway, i made a bunch of inchie-like-items, with teeny decorations, but instead of using the 1" square punch, i used my 1" circle punch.
(papers: michaels, core'dinations, imagination project, love elsie, ki, doodlebug, sei, creative imaginations,vintage sheet music, vintage game card, pages from a japanese workbook; words cut from book scraps; embellies: mambi gems; creative imaginations rub-ons, doodlebug paperfrills; making memories eyelet; ki lace paper; stickers: cavallini, sanrio, hallmark; stamps: hero arts; punches: marvy, mcgill, ek success, inks: colorbox, ranger; pen: zig; foam tape: 3m)
so what am i gonna use these for?
no idea. maybe cards...maybe nothing...one thing i do know: occasionally i need to make POINTLESS stuff with no agenda and no purpose in mind. because even when i'm frantically busy, ART PLAY is not a luxury, it's a necessary part of the mojo-recharging process. in fact, what i realllllllllllly need is to get back to art journalling on a regular basis. but for now, these guys were definitely a fun way to spend the latter part of a couple of evenings!
