Having all this fun stuff to play with from Inchie Arts has got me jumping in on the Inchy By Inch Monday challenges. They're going through the alphabet and are on the letter "F" now ... I think I have some catching up to do! For this project I used the white Twinchie Squares (shown here .....)
I think I'll go through the alphabet using flowers from my garden.
I have beautiful baskets of fuchsias on my porch in the summertime.
Using a photograph from last summer, I first sketched my drawing in pencil and then went over it in ink and next colored it in with watercolors.
The Inchie Arts material took erasing of the pencil marks without the surface getting roughed up -
and I'm very happy with how well the watercolor took to the surface as well.
But did you know how to spell F U C H S I A?
I didn't! and had to put in an "oops!" and spell it correctly ...
I can't stand to leave something misspelled!
You'd think it would go by typical spelling rules - is there such a thing? - and be spelled
F U S C H I A
.... but it's named after a 16th c. German botanist by the name of Leonhart Fuchs .... so it's
F U C H S I A
