Topic: A - Z challenge 7
The ideas for 'Volume' ranged from 'glass is half full' to making a book, but I finally knew it was right when I realized I had to make a 'volume' of items.
Now, I do not like to make the same thing over and over so this was a big challenge for me. The way I resolved the issue was to make them all a little different.
So what did I make? Inchies! Have you heard of them? They are one inch square little works of art. I used yellow Mat board as a base, rubber stamped them with a variety of stamps in a variety of ink colors. These I colored with watercolor markers, added bits of stickers, rhinestones, and then covered with two layers of UTEE. The last step, after adding identifying stickers to the back, was to use metallic gold leafing pen on all the edges.
This is the whole group:
Here are the individual styles - based on the original stamp used.
So, you ask, what are these for? I took them on my Alaska cruise with Tim Holtz to trade with other artists.
