Yep, “implausible.” That’s the word for this week’s Every Inchie Monday challenge. Hats off to my fellow players who have not only managed to come up with great ideas, they have also executed them brilliantly. I struggled with this one. My first thought was simply to use a dictionary entry as a backdrop and then create a little collage from found bits and pieces. However, once I’d reduced the dictionary entry to size it was so tiny you couldn’t read it. The definition wasn’t very helpful, it being “not plausible.” So after further thought, I decided to go with some themes that, in my world, are entirely plausible but for the majority of people entirely implausible.
First up is a silhouette image of a scene from Alice in Wonderland and I’ve simply added some colour to the background. The image is another from from the Gecko Galz Charming Silhouettes digi stamp set that you’ve seen me use a lot. I love both Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through The Looking Glass (my favourite of the two) and decided that every event could be deemed implausible.
My other two inchies are made using images from this month’s new digi stamp release from the Gecko Galz – Pixie Chicks. It was only after I had made the inchies that I realised I would have to wait until today, when the new sets go “live,” to do my blogpost.
I have simply coloured these images in and added a bit of sparkle with a gel pen. I especially like the fairy sharing a secret with the Koala. In that little scene it’s the Koala that makes it implausible! The other is the Tea Fairy.
I also have a card to show you;
That stunning bird image is in fact one of the papers from the Gecko Galz Garden Botanica set from last month. This is a fabulous set as the papers make brilliant cards all by themselves.
I’ve used some gorgeous coordinating ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with some lemon mini-pom pom trim and my favourite organza rose ribbon trim.
I’ve used kraft paper and a doily to build up the layers and finished it all off with some coordinating gems.
I can tell you I had a fabulous day at Art from the Heart yesterday and managed to make four matchbox projects. However, they need a little finishing off before I can share them with you here. If you like you can take a sneaky peek by checking out Kate Crane’s blog. Kate was our fantastic tutor and the matchboxes are on her blog along with loads of other inspirational work.
Thanks for buzzing by.
