My first INCHIES!

Inspired by Doc Angi's show on Sunday, I decided to make some 'inchies'. To the uninitiated, these are little pieces of art made on a 1" square.  They are fun and easy.

The first fun part is decorating your background paper. Paint, draw, spray, decoupage your heart out. 

I have many pieces of watercolour art and decided to use a piece from my (in)famous watercolour graveyard. 

As you will see, I sectioned the paper into 1" strips. I used a pencil to draw moderate weight lines and then went over the lines with a Conte a Paris white pastel pencil. Smudged it a little. I love the way it defines the borders of the squares. 


  1. I have never tried to make these. But seeing yours has me thinking I have a graveyard of my own to pull from! Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. Winnie I hope you will share what you make! Have fun in the graveyard:)

  3. These came out cute Roberta. I need to get busy on mine. I cut out the inchies and that's as far as I got!

  4. Thanks Hermy! Let's see your inchies!

  5. Hi Robi!!! Been a long time, I know. I think of you often, and decided it was time to stop and say 'hello.' Love your inchies! Hope all is well.
    Love and hugs,

    1. Yes, I KNOW Christine! So nice to hear from you. I will be starting up some shows in the not-too-distant future.


It's nice to get feedback.
