Inchie (/'inch-ē): a 1" x 1" square piece of medium (e.g. cardstock, chipboard, fabric, and so forth) embellished as desired; typically used to convey a concept, idea, feeling or sentiment. Working at a small scale is both challenging and fun. At first I figured Inchies would be pretty much restrictive. I mean, ONE INCH square??? How can I work with a canvas THAT small?? Well I gotta tell you - these are addictive and downright fun. I had a blast going through embellishments and gathering product that I could use on these tiny art forms. And I was shocked at how many embellishments and product one can use on a little 1" x 1" square of cardstock. 6x6 or 8x8 pads of designer paper are perfect for Inchies - because the scale of the 12x12 paper has been scaled down. Artist should initial somewhere on the front of your Inchie; use them in groupings, solo (mount on chipboard & hot glue a tack on the back), create into magnets, or frame them as I did here with other elements. I heard about Inchies from Ellen Hutson - here is her post for more information about these one-inch-wonders. Ellen is giving away a limited number of free Inchie art pieces by Karen Lockhart with purchase - please see her site for details. Plus, Lockhart Stamp Company just released new images..... Any notes from this point on are details/product list on what I used on these - thank you for stopping by!
