I found an online craft swap site and joined up, happily swapping ATC and little folded zines. I saw someone there mention "inchies", and I was intrigued. I looked around and found inchies on flickr, and started making my own.
I end up with piles and piles of tiny little art. Mostly I draw on them, but people seem to like making them with collage and other techniques.
I loved this little fish, but I sent it off to my swap partner. I think I'll make myself a little wall of fishies and aquarium things, then mount them together. Or... what about magnets for our new fridge?
This one worked well, I thought. It's one of the first ones I made.
There are lots of tiny little bits of art out there - I find that working small is a good way for me to work. I like that I can keep ATC cards in my purse. Recently I've been working on 3x5 cards as well - I like the slightly longer aspect.
I have a sudden, unexpected cleaning up deadline, so I'm off to clean, now. I think I need more coffee first, though.
