6 days...6 different sizes of Art Squares!
Day 1 - 1" Inchie Squares
Our first project of the week takes us back to where it all began 7 years ago when we introduced 1" Inchie Squares. A fun way to use multiple Inchie Squares on a card is to create a mosaic or puzzle with one large image, and the poinsettia from the PB Festive Florals Slapstick Cling set is the perfect stamp!
Begin by fitting 8 ivory Inchie Squares tightly together on a work sheet using non permanent adhesive. Stamp the image across all squares using a dye based ink such as Memento Tuxedo Black. Keep the squares together while coloring - we used a variety of pink and green Copic Markers frequently overlappying colors to blend.
To create the finished card simply reassemble the colored squares onto an appropriate background card stock leaving a small amount of equal space between each square.
Tomorrow the next size up...1-1/2" Art Squares!
Visit this blog, and the Penny Black blog, every day through Saturday for great fall and holiday ideas...and don't forget to comment on the blogs and facebook pages for a chance to win the giveaway!
Todays tidbit about Art Squares - you will notice that the Art Square that Cathy used on the Penny Black blog post today was a 2" black square. What most don't know is that all of our Art Squares...with the exception of the black, are made from paper (farm grown trees in fact!). However, the black is actually made from single ply cotton and the 'super black' is achieved from natural ebony.
See you tomorrow!
