Just for Fun Size Matters !
No it's not another R & B ( Rosie and Bailey ) the paper eating mutts story. It's the Just for Fun Challenge Size Matters ! As you can see by the above photo not in our house, Rosie the french bulldog 10 kilos and Bailey her sidekick who incidentally is the man of the house 1.9 kilos !
This week It's Neets turn to set the challenge and it's her first one so best of luck to her ! Our subject for this week is " Inchies " 1 x 1 inches more for the likes of Bailey than Rosie. I love these little mini pieces of art although the bloggers blindness and having quite long nails proved to hold me back a little , but that's all I have to whinge about this week ( is that cheering I hear in the background ??) In fact I loved it so much that I made two pieces !!!
Just a little apology Mr I Mac has decided for some reason not to rotate this image so we are having to view it sideways and uncropped sorry for that. I used Hero Arts mini flower stamps and cut them into the inchies and then distressed the edges and added a little distress ink here and there. On this one I wanted each image to be random .I made my little flower and used Paper Artsy stamps for the leaves a tiny pearl for the centre and layered them on stamped rice paper and velum. This one looks so much better in the flesh and of course the right way up !
Here I stamped a flower onto onto white card stock stock and used distress inks to colour the background , I then cut into six one inch squares and placed foam pads underneath to give it a bit of depth, made a couple of leaves from some gorgeous velum . It was then mounted onto black card. The most time consuming part of the whole thing was trying to get the correct spacing between the inchies and unsticking them from my talons !
Do pop over and see the wonderful art the gorgeous design team have come up with at Just for Fun truly inspiring !
Hope you all have a fab weekend , it's finally stopped raining here !!!!!!hooray
