Every Inchie Monday: Hotel

Hello Folks,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is hotel.  I love hotels - they are my idea of camping out.  I could never understand why people would want to sleep on the ground with the ants.

When I was a child I played a lot of Monopoly with my older brother, and lost a lot.  I always wanted a hotel on Boardwalk:

My quilled inchie is supposed to look like the hotel signs you see on the highway to tell you there is accommodation up ahead.  It consists of a figure reclining on a bed with a roof over top:

Have a luxurious week and thanks for stopping by.

Every Inchie Monday: Myth

Hello Folks, 

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Myth.  I love mythology.  In university I took an art history course entitled 'Myth and Allegory in Italian Renaissance Art'.  I was in seventh heaven.  Best course I ever took, which unfortunately was never offered again.  lol.  Don't know why - too specific I suppose.  But it was indeed glorious studying all those wonderful paintings and how they depicted myths.

For my drawn inchie I have a couple of silly mythological dragons.  I didn't want to draw anyone killing them as always happens in mythology:

I got a little more traditional with my quilled inchie and did my best to depict Medusa, with her stunning gaze and all those snakes in her hair:

Have a week full of imagination.

Every Inchie Monday: Rhythm

Hello Fellow Inchers,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is one of those difficult concepts:  rhythm.  Not only is it hard to spell it's not easy to visualize.  This week I have chosen to go with one of my favourite musical teams, George and Ira Gershwin and their wonderul "I've got Rhythm".  My first inchie is the first musical phrase:

My quilled inchie is a single note.  This one was made quite a long time ago - I've since figured out how not to let the glue show, but I didn't feel like re-doing the inchie.

Hope you have great rhythm this week.  Thanks for all the lovely comments.  They really make my day.

Every Inchie Monday: Ear

Hello Fellow Inchers,

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is ear.  I'm not very good at drawing people and when I do they always have hair over their ears because whereas noses are difficult, ears are impossible.  So instead I've gone a bit outside of the box.  Anyone remember old - very old - televisions that needed 'rabbit ears' to tune in the picture properly?

My quilled inchie is a little far out there as well.  No way could I quill a human ear, so I went for something to cover them when it gets cold:  ear muffs.

Listen to the whisperings this week.

Every Inchie Monday: Necklace

Hi Folks, 

Thank you for visiting.  Today's word at Every Inchie Monday is necklace.  My first inchie is a beaded necklace I made a few years ago (I didn't just go out and make it for an inchie, although I am that dedicated.  lol).  The beads are all flowers and leaves and it is very summery.  The colour is a bit washed out in this photo.  I'm still getting used to the camera on my phone and lighting.  

My second inchie is, of course, quilled  (Do you think I like cool colours?):

Decorate yourself this week.
