"i" is for ....


I've tried to come up with words that haven't been overused in this type of art
(assemblages, alterations, etc.)
A typical choice would have been "imagine."
And, in my opinion, is overused.
When a word is overused, the meaning is diminished.
I like the word "invite."
The possibilities are endless - and very kind don't you think?


This inchie uses an Inchie Arts white inchie base, wrapping paper, watercolor paper, microbeads, pearl-ex powder, a brass charm with the hanger removed, and a krylon gold leafing pen.

This is my letter "i" for this week's Inchie by Inch challenge.

I "invite" you to try making an inchie
they're
inchie cinchie
easy peasy
especially when you start with an Inchie Arts base :)

These insanely tiny pieces are beginning to call my name. Now if I could just figure out a way to make them bigger (grin).

Invite is a great word, and it is especially pertinent when inviting bloggers to tea.

A great choice of word for our I inchy - and I love the way you invited more people to make an inchie

Never heard of an inchie but I like the sound of it. I would have thought it would be difficult working on such a small scale, but you make it sound so easy Kimmie!
Perfect word choice too :-)

I'm with you re: the 'overused' words. 'Invite' is good....

Yes I can "imagine" (lol) how words can get over used. You've made a great inchy here. I like the word invite.
