Every Inchie Monday - Map

This week the subject on Every Inchie Monday . So easy to cut out a bit of map, so that is what I did. I cut out enough to be able to fold it like a proper map. You know the the ones you can never get to fold up properly again. I then added a shrink plastic map tag to the front, as I was feeling guilty just cutting a map to bits.

Fusible film

I made these two for a swap where you had to use fusible film. I haven't made up my mind yet, which one I will send to my swap partner. I used Lynne Perrella stamps for both of them, and Stazon ink. Colour the stamp with black Stazon, and put 2 or 3 layers of film on top of the stamp, touching the ink. Put a layer of parchment paper on top, and iron with the iron set on the silk setting. Check carefully to see if it has transfered the image.
Carefully stick onto chosen backings. In this case a canvas that I had textured around the edge of, and a tag that I added some texture, and Angelina fibres to. Because they arew shiny, they don't photograph very well.

Artful Times Challenge--Alcohol inks

For this Artful Times challenge, I used the alcohol inks on three white dominoes. I stamped a Lynne Perrella stamp in black Stazon on all three at once. I then painted a small canvas and stuck the dominoes onto that. I added some small metal flowers on two of the corners.

Twinchies challenge - Flower

For this Twinchie challenge, I decided to do a fabric one. I painted some pelmet vilene, and cut out the background, and some leaves. I sewed the leaves down, and left one so that it was more 3D. I made a bright pink flower out of organza, sewed some beads in the middle.

This week on Every Inchie Monday the subject is 'footstep'
 Mine is a foot print in the sand. I embossed the card with thick embossing powder, and stamped the foot print into it.

Artful Times Challenge - Spots, stripes, circles, and straight lines

I am very late with this Artful Times Challenge where does the time go. I have been trying to catch up with some swaps, and am struggling a bit with lack of inspiration.
In the end, I decided to do a journal spread in one of my homemade journals. This is the Summer one, so found two circles that I had made with poppies on, and put the required dots and stripes etc on the background. The background was created with Dylusion sprays, and stamped with some of their journal stamps. I will do some journal-ling on the page at a later date

Every Inchie Monday - Glasses

I'm a bit behind this week, having family here for Mother's day. The subject this week is glasses, which could  be spectacles or drinking glasses. I decided on spectacles.
Not one of my favourite inches I hasten to add

Postcard fabric book

The first picture is of a piece of felting, using black felt, and textured wool, that I did at Celyn Textiles with Sheila Davies. The second picture is the same piece after I had used some machine embroidery stitches on it. It's lined with fabric and has an insert for storing my fabric postcards.

Every Inchie Monday - Wave

This weeks word is wave, so I have used my Pan Pastels to draw some sea waves. Not very easy on an inch square. I made two while I was in the mood.
