The theme at Every Inchie Monday this week is pocket watch. It seems that I can’t just make one inchie but have to make them in multiples of four! Here’s what I came up with:
The white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland was the first thing that occurred to me and I just happen to have a CD, Very Important date by My Craft Studio, that is packed full of Wonderland images. It would have been very easy to just resize some of these to 1″ squares, but it is not in my nature to take the easy route.
I did resize the images – a pocket watch and the rabbit – so they were teeny tiny and then, after painstakingly cutting them all out, made them into mini collages. This is when a really good pair of craft scissors would have been a help – sadly, that is one craft essential that I don’t possess.
The words were printed out on my computer and I added in some Graphic 45 paper for a couple of the backgrounds. Everything was inked with Vintage Photo and the rabbit was applied using small 3D foam pads to give him dimension.
The finishing touch was to add a drop of Diamond Glaze to the pocket watches being held by the rabbit and then walk away so I wasn’t tempted to touch them before they had dried.
Thanks for buzzing by.
