Getting a Jump on "Mirthful" Monday!

So I decided to go digital, for the most part, this week for Monday's word: "mirthful"....:-)

Ava just looked so mirthful when she was playing around with the beads we were using to make necklaces over the summer. I used my PaintShopPro Photo X2 and used the "colored foil" artistic effect, playing around with the settings until I got it "just right!"

I did print it out and mount it on cardstock and then used a sparkly pen around the edge to set it off a bit more. Still enjoying the Inchie Mondays sooo much! :-) Already thinking on what to do for next week! :-)

 And here is the original photo:

It's a "Maudlin" Inchie Monday

So I wasn't really sure how to portray the word for the day, but every time I thought of the word maudlin, a sad little clown materialized in my brain, soooo....I actually drew this clown in my art journal, then scanned it, colored, scanned it again to resize, and mounted it on my Inchie!

A "Caring" Inchie Monday

Today's word for Every Inchie Monday was "Caring" I used a serendipity square that I had leftover from an altered book RR I'm working on and cut it to size - 1x1 - which is really teeny tiny when you go to draw a mama birdie keeping her baby birdie safe from harm. Thus, the "caring" part of the Inchie....:-)

I think I'm having as much fun coming up with different spots to photogragh the Inchies as I am making the Inchies in the first place! :-)

A "Powerful" Inchie Monday

Given that the snowfalls across the country have pretty much shut down a good portion of it, I'd say snow is pretty darn powerful in itself...which is convenient, given that today's Every Inchie Monday word is Powerful! :-)

Every Inchie Monday :-)

So I've decided to see if I can "focus" on doing a year-long project called Every Inchie Monday. Shouldn't be too hard. It's only a once-a-week committment. And only an inch a week. Using a word prompt for inspiration and interpretation. I can do an inch a week, right?

So...I rummaged through my desk at work to see what kind of goodies I had saved from certain dumpster death and found some purple cardstock, waste from a roll of hole reinforcers, a little red jewel I found on the carpet, and then dug out my smiley stickers, colored pencils, gel pens, and glue stick, the word prompt for the week..."eclectic"...and went at it, and voila'....
