Sunflowers and Dragonflies, and a recent challenge was to incorporate inchies or twinchies into a project. Inchies are little 1x1 pieces of artwork, and twinchies are 2x2 pieces of artwork. I made a set of twinchies, using photos I took at an exhibit at the Academy of Sciences on human facial features, a masked and spray-inked background, and painted grungeboard. You can see the full set of twinchies here. I used one of the twinchies on this art journal page with a messy, collagey, spray ink and torn paper background.
Here's a card I made with some inchies. These were very simple to make, but I think they turned out great. I cut grungeboard into 1x1 inch squares, inked up a collage stamp (Stampers Anonymous) with water-proof ink, and then pressed the square onto an interesting portion of the stamp. I colored the image with radiant pearls and a water brush. They were so easy that I actually did them while supervising homework!
