Trinchies?

I like these triple inchies! More room than inchies, but still a great size for a card or an altered book… the possibilities are endless. They’d be great for fabric/textile work too! If only I could keep up with my muse! I made three trinchies for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week – all different!

This background paper was a freebie with CB mag last summer if I remember rightly and when I came across it this afternoon, I immediately thought it’d be good for these size projects. I had a small printed out image with dots, etc, which is how this piece came about. The words were cut from another scrap of book page I was going to bin! I seem to have had large sheets of mulberry papers hanging around forever, so I’ve used that too! I added tiny blue seed beads to the whole brown dots, which really show up in RL, although not really in the pic.

This next one I made first, having just watched Julia Andrus playing with chalk inks – okay these aren’t, just good old pigment ink to paper in 4 colours! I love this DaVinci image probably because it’s not Mona! I also had to have my current favourite background stamp on there somewhere, didn’t I? *grins*

Now this one was inspired by an image on one of the Collage Sheets I bought over the weekend from Collage Visions – I needed some Halloween images and there are some fab sheets for sale – with a great Buy2, get 1 free offer on throughout August.

I finished up by using one of Trish Bee’s digital stamps to create this ATC for aRtbUzz challenge #10:

I printed the whole sheet out onto cream textured cardstock (A4 size = 8.5 x 11″ approx) and cut an ATC straight from the first image. A bit of red mulberry paper, some red ink, chop 2 corners, add an eyelet and doodle the leaves of the fern. Write on the ATC, et voila!!

  18. All beatiful, Rosie!! I especially love your guy in the frame, and the tale that the newspaper begins to tell….my imagination wants to continue the story! Trinchies are great, I agree with you! They are the size of images used in my tea mailers. Perfect to work with!!
