Today I finished these inchies for a swap. We were sent a premade background and were to finish them. I had some fortunes from cookies lying on my table and thought the blue words fit perfectly.

Snail mail

This is just for fun. A 6"X6" collage on paper using some of the mail I've gotten. Bar codes,stamp,rubberstamped images,flower catalog, and fliers. On one of these I allow myself only twenty mins. so I can't over think it too much.

Blue Inchies

Just a few Blue Inchies today for a swap on a yahoo group.

Rain today

What better way to spend a gray, rain on and off day than to straighten things up a bit. Because my art style changes every few months I find things that I will likely never use again. I went through a brown ink period, then white ink. Now the permanent black, distressed and chalk inks are all I use. Rubber stamps the same. When I was making cards a few years ago the stamps I used then now I never use. Cardstock, same thing, hardly ever use it, now I paint papers. Colored cardstock now seems so boring. I still use a lot of images, all kinds from all companies. But, I also use alot more images from junk. Tickets, books, photos, calendars everything is fair game. Just love to paint on a surface that has papers glued on first.
So, I found some more inchies I had made and just filed away (put in a drawer). Here are a few more and some for a private swap.

Here are the scans

The closing and opening

I really enjoy reading blogs written by other artists. So now I hope to share with them what I am doing in art.
I have just finished 26 original pages for Chrysti Hydeck's Skinny Fat Book. Painted, inked, stamped, collaged, painted some more, collaged, stenciled and inked. I am so glad that I was in this swap, I learned a great deal. Some of her methods I used and a few I didn't. It is one of those projects that I hate to pack up to send, wish I could keep them all. So, I will continue to use some of the same methods and maybe keep a piece for myself.
