Every Inchie monday: Envelope

Hello Folks,

This week's word at Every inchie monday is Envelope.  Nothing spectacular this week, just ordinary envelopes!  I didn't draw one, instead making one out a teeny, tiny piece of paper.

My quilled inchie was a bit difficult because I am just beginning to learn how to make inchies with the paper on it's side.  It's very difficult to keep the 1/8 [edit] inch wide strip of paper upright on its edge.  Yet some of the most beautiful quilling is done this way.  (Sorry for the shadows in the photograph.  I had a hard time getting the lighting right.)

Hope you get happy mail from someone this week.

Every Inchie Monday: Movie

Hello Folks,

Being as it is a holiday here in Canada, I almost forgot to post!

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is movie.  I decided to use a picture from the greatest movie of all time: The Wizard of Oz.  I adore this movie, and I especially love Munchkinland.  One day, I am going to paint this scene, or one close to it.  I even have a large canvas to do so, just don't feel yet that I can do it.  Someday.

For my quilled inchie, I made an old time movie camera:

Sorry I missed commenting on everyone's inchies last week.  Times have been trying, but things are improving.  I do love comments and thank you for each and every one. They make me happy.

I'm off to see the wizard.  Have a great week and watch out for those wicked witches.

Every Inchie Monday: Diagram

Hello Folks,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Diagram.  I think this may be the hardest word I've ever made an inchie for.  Perhaps I was being too literal and  I should have drawn just anything, which would have been a diagram.  But instead, for my drawn inchie, I decided to diagram a sentence, like they used to do back in the day in school:

My quilled inchie was much more difficult.  I decided to do a Venn diagram, but I think it needs a drawn one so you can see what it is supposed to look like.

So there you have a weird quilled venn diagram.  I actually pulled a muscle in my arm quilling, which, added to my rheumatoid arthritis, the cellulitus in my leg, and the constant visits to doctors, the wound clinic, and the hospital, has made my life rather trying for the past few weeks.  But things are getting better .

Have a fantastic week.  Draw something.

Every Inchie Monday: Leopard

Hello Fellow Inchers,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Leopard.  I love all cats in any shape or form.   I chose to draw a rather cute Leopard:

It was more difficult to come up with an idea for my quilled inchie, because there was no way I could fit an entire leopard into one inch.  So instead, I made a stylized version of a leopard skin pattern:

Have a catastic week.
