Mixed Media Inchies with BIRD!
Due: January 25th
Sign up/withdrawal: January15th
Trade: 6/6 or 12/12
Participants: 40

I just love my inchie collection!:yes:
How clever can YOU be??
Let's make mixed media inchies with at least a part of a bird showing. Hopefully more than a leg...although it doesn't have to be more than a face or a wing!

This swap is open to all SERIOUS inchie collectors. Even though they are small, they can be very detailed or complex. Let's see what you can really do!!

Please send a Self addressed envelope and loose postage. I'll pack them up to go back to you. International members are welcome. I will take care of your postage.
Spare inchies for me are always appreciated.

Got my desk cleared and looking for something new, please sign me up.
This will be my first Inchies swap here, but a return to the format of the first Mailart show I sent into back in 1992. What goes around.....

10-30-2008, 10:12 AM
Welcome to our first sign-ups...KatieV, katilady, and obviousfront. Yeah inchies!!

10-30-2008, 12:35 PM

10-31-2008, 09:15 AM
Welcome xraypinky,nomnom and adifferentstory.

10-31-2008, 11:33 AM
Shoreart: question for you - Would eggs count as a part of a bird (since it's a baby bird waiting to happen)?

Terri F
10-31-2008, 02:22 PM
Yipee would love to play! Please sign me up.

10-31-2008, 03:43 PM
I really never thought about it. How would you feel expecting bird parts and getting eggs instead? Any comments from anyone else??

Welcome tmfmom. What do you think?

11-01-2008, 04:24 AM
I have no objections.

11-01-2008, 09:07 AM
Yeah, I love eggs tooo!

11-01-2008, 09:15 AM
Looks like it's okay!

11-01-2008, 09:23 AM
Cool!! I think I'll do this (http://gomakesomething.com/ht/recycled/serendipity-squares/) for my backgrounds for these :)

11-01-2008, 09:57 AM
How about an impression of a bird rather than an actual picture of a bird? Is that allowed?

11-01-2008, 11:26 AM
I guess we could say yes to anything..but I'd like to stay a little on topic. If you want to draw the way a bird look like to you..that's fine. I am not sure these little inchies are big enough for abstract impressions.

11-01-2008, 02:15 PM
I was thinking of stitching him?

11-01-2008, 05:24 PM
I'd like to join!

11-01-2008, 06:01 PM
Bright-Spark...if you can stitch a birdie that small...more power to you!

Welcome complicious!

11-01-2008, 07:18 PM
okay, well after a lot of faffing, could I please join your inchie swap shoreart?

The birdies may or may not be stitched.......

11-01-2008, 11:07 PM
Of course Bright Spark...glad to have you!

11-01-2008, 11:48 PM
KatieV: Serendipity squares are alot of fun - they are unique too. You'll like them if you haven't done it beore.

11-02-2008, 01:50 AM
Serendipity squares are great, I agree! Always available to add or jazz up a projecr.

11-02-2008, 03:05 AM

amyfaerie gorgeous inchies!

Ooops! I just read it is 12 for 12. Back to the art table!

11-06-2008, 04:48 PM
Oh Elena..they are gorgeous too! What a great swap this will be!!

Welcome Mingo!

11-06-2008, 04:53 PM
I did a Bird inchies swap some months ago and it was fantastic. I guess this is a theme you can do all kind of pretty things with :jiggy:

11-06-2008, 08:35 PM
Ooooh, lovely birdies on here so quickly!! I figured out what I'm going to do!! I found a teensy teensy bird stamp that I'd forgotten that I had!! :laugh:

11-07-2008, 05:46 PM
Mingo, I knew you couldn't stay away from this one either!!! :D:laugh:

11-10-2008, 04:58 PM
Elena, I received your wonderful birdies today. Thanks for being so prompt!

11-11-2008, 07:48 PM
I'm new to inchies - so I won't have them done in like one day, but will have to labor over each one. Also I have questions - just how much info is expected to be on the back? Does each inchie need to be Titled or is "Bird Inchie 1" sufficient?
Here is my first inchie:

11-11-2008, 08:20 PM
Only things needed on the back are your username and real name. I figured that out when I signed my first group with my real name...and not everyone knew who that was.

Otherwise, don't sweat it. It is just working really small...but everything else is the same. I'm sure yours will be great!

11-13-2008, 09:48 AM
Hi, Can I am interested to join this swap. Sound so interesting. This will be my first time trying on doing the inchies. I may need some guides to start with.

11-13-2008, 10:24 AM
Welcome betzzz..you are added!

11-13-2008, 01:44 PM
oooh! yummy awesome bird inchies Amy and Elena! You've inspired me! Going to do the serendipity square thing for the backgrounds, then add the birdies - I found a great "birdie post" inchie collage sheet (but don't ask me to remember where - maybe artchix.com) and I have some tiny birdie stamps I can use and then emboss.

11-13-2008, 02:25 PM
Sounds like they will be great! Amy, I have received your inchies. Thanks for playing!!

11-16-2008, 02:42 AM
Here are my inchies! I hope you like them...


11-16-2008, 11:29 AM
Just great Rooksie. They look spectacular!

11-17-2008, 10:11 PM
oooh - those are fabulous Rooksie!

11-18-2008, 01:56 AM
I did my birdies in the serendipity square style. The gold embossing didn't scan very well. I like it when the rubber edge around the stamp shows too because I think it really gives a stamp a hand made look - I don't know if anybody feels the same way, but that's why the circle shows around the little birdies.

11-18-2008, 11:50 AM
TY Mingo.

11-18-2008, 03:25 PM
Love your birdies xray!!!

corduroy cat
11-19-2008, 07:48 AM
here's my inchies made from vintage tea card images... please be kind! ;)
still need to make one for our lovely organiser...

11-19-2008, 09:17 AM
Great inchies being shown!! I still have a few birdies that I did in the inchie-a-thon, will be making a few more, probably collage.

11-19-2008, 10:06 AM
Great inchies corduroy cat!

11-19-2008, 04:07 PM

11-21-2008, 04:17 PM
Rooksie, your birdies have flown in!

Boy, I just realized...I must have some inner connection to the sky and flying things. Last swap was of Kites, this one of birds. Anyone up for airplanes?..just kidding!

11-21-2008, 06:24 PM

I mailed my inchies to you yesterday.
Thanks so much~*~

11-26-2008, 09:31 AM
Please sign me up...............

shoreart - how many inchies do you have in your collection........chosatlanta posted a picture of her framed inches awhile back and they looked soo awesome. I went out and bought two of the frames she used and framed up 2 with some of my inchie collection ( 162 inchies) and they look sooooooooooooooooooooooooo awesome!!!!! I just keep looking at them and I can't believe what fantastic pieces of art that has been framed up!! The other neat thing about it is they are from all over the world..............japan, australia, united kingdom, new zealand, canada and many many states.................

11-26-2008, 11:02 AM
Monarch...not nearly enough! I use a looseleaf binder with plastic pages I bought from the Coin & Stamp store. They are meant to hold our quarters. Lots of beautiful, tiny pieces of artwork on a page. They are just amazing to look at. I guess I just like the idea of working very small and detailed. I used to make miniature flower arrangements for exhibition when I belonged to the Garden Club with my Mom. Like 4" and under.

Anyway, welcome to our mini group!

corduroy cat
11-27-2008, 10:33 AM
i'm gonna look into the coin/stamp sleeve thing cause i've been trying to come up with a way to view my inchies. thanks :D

11-27-2008, 09:29 PM
I'd like to be included in this swap please.

11-28-2008, 01:20 AM
count me in!

11-29-2008, 12:38 AM
I decided on different legs, so these extra four inchies I mounted on a shiny black ATC blank. I'm having fun making lots of practice birds!

11-29-2008, 03:11 PM
I will be mailing my inchies on Monday.

11-29-2008, 08:12 PM
Very cut Janjo!!!

11-29-2008, 08:46 PM
Can I join the birdie fun? I have tried to resist...but it is futile...;)

11-29-2008, 09:15 PM
Welcome Totofoto, Purpleart and teri!! Of course you can't resist!! Who doesn't like little birdies??

11-30-2008, 02:56 PM
mine are done, will mail them soon. shoreart - there's an extra for you (has a bead) and please pm me your address - thanks! I used the serendipity square technique for the background (it's hard to see the tissue paper layers but they are there) and also did some gesso stamping (script stamp and tiny leaves). I found a tiny birdie stamp that worked out really well and fit perfectly into the inch size. I added a bead to shoreart's thank you inchie but wasn't sure if anyone else would like the idea so I didn't bead the rest. here's a peek


11-30-2008, 10:30 PM
I am mailing my inchies tomorrow.......

12-01-2008, 01:25 AM
How cute Ergobeck!!!

12-01-2008, 12:19 PM
so my sealer is drying on my birdies, but i have a question about shipping. as this is my first inchie swap i was wondering what's the best way to ship the little buggers.

12-01-2008, 12:35 PM
Just finished my inchies....ready to send off....picture posted up in the gallery. :)

12-01-2008, 01:06 PM
How cute Ergobeck!!!

thanks !!

12-01-2008, 02:30 PM
here's mine and they're ready to go! they're brighter in person, my scanner just likes to darken things sometimes.

12-01-2008, 06:45 PM
This is what I do personally.

I fold a strip of paper that is 2 1/2 " in half so that each half measures approx. 1 1/4"
I then use a stapler to divide the paper into little pockets for the inchies. I then tape my little holders into a folded piece of cardstock and off they go. Hope this helps.

By the way, I will be out of the country from Dec. 12 to Jan. 2. My mail will be collected everyday by the person who takes care of my birds. However, I suggest...if you don't send your birdies this week, please hold them until after New Years Day. Less Christmas mail traffic. I am sure they will arrive safely...but I won't know about it until Jan.3 when I go through my mail. Better not to take any chances of them getting lost or misplaced by the post office. Thanks!!

12-01-2008, 07:18 PM
I'll hold off on sending mine then, and enjoy your trip!! have fun and be safe!

12-03-2008, 04:42 PM
I received Totofoto's adorable bird inchies today...along with a wonderful ATC.
Thanks Lisa, I really love it!!

12-03-2008, 04:45 PM

12-05-2008, 06:20 PM
Monarch, your inchies are here. Thanks for the extras!

12-05-2008, 06:59 PM
I was wondering if they were there yet...Thanks for letting me know!!!

12-06-2008, 12:44 PM
messmaker - you sent your bird inchies to me by mistake. will forward them to shoreart when I send in mine.

12-06-2008, 04:22 PM
Here is a picture of one of my framed inchies

12-06-2008, 09:38 PM
Wow, that is really nice!! How did you do that??

By the way, xraypinky, your great birdies arrived. thanks for my extras!!

Carolina Soap Chef
12-06-2008, 09:44 PM
Wow! I'm impressed, Monarch. Looks like a great idea! Thanks for posting the picture. :jiggy:Berkeley Elisabeth

12-06-2008, 10:59 PM
I'm loving this little art project-please sign me up-I've got the perfect bird for this.

12-07-2008, 12:14 AM

12-07-2008, 08:24 PM
shoreart - Will mail my birdies tomorrow along with messmakers.

12-07-2008, 10:43 PM
Thanks. I will be on the lookout for them.

12-08-2008, 04:08 PM
did i really?!!! that's the second time that's happened to me. i need to lay off the crack!!!

12-08-2008, 05:07 PM
did i really?!!! that's the second time that's happened to me. i need to lay off the crack!!!

(it was me as well the other time, too) I LMAO when I got your package. for some reason your subconscious wants you to send me your goodies, not that I mind.....I just wish I could keep them! LOL! anywho, they went out in today's mail along with mine.

12-09-2008, 12:48 PM
Those are just fine!!

12-10-2008, 01:04 AM
Mingo - Excellent birds!

monarch - you inspired me to share a mounting idea.

I cut 1.25 inch corners from card sleeves - these were the kind with a black back - and mounted them so that inchies can be slipped in and out. Now let's see if I can put a thumbnail or link in here...

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/1430/small/1_Kai_Speaks.jpg (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=48547)

The squares are mounted crookedly on purpose because this will be a chunky page and I wanted spaces to add threads and beads, etc.

12-10-2008, 10:32 AM
(it was me as well the other time, too) I LMAO when I got your package. for some reason your subconscious wants you to send me your goodies, not that I mind.....I just wish I could keep them! LOL! anywho, they went out in today's mail along with mine.

i did didn't i? i need to mail you something special then. i think you're right, i must be dying to mail things to you and i don't even know it!

12-13-2008, 12:07 PM
luckygrl11702, welcome; glad to have you join us!

12-19-2008, 04:02 AM
Here are my birdies! I will send them off to you by Monday! (May I have your address, please.) Thanks for this fun swap!

12-19-2008, 05:01 PM
Adorable birdies Jitterbug! I'll pm you my address, but please don't mail until after Christmas. Thanks.

12-24-2008, 08:02 PM
Now that Christmas is out of the way, I have time to make bird inchies. Please sign me up!

12-25-2008, 12:58 AM
Hi below are examples of the inchies made for my 12/12 swap.

12-25-2008, 08:38 AM
I'd love to play too, if there's still room!


12-25-2008, 06:47 PM
Welcome LadyWatersnake and pithier. I'll update the list soon.

Katie, those inchies are really adorable!

12-25-2008, 07:03 PM
Please explian: do inchies mean seperate 1 inch cards or 6 on one card?

12-26-2008, 10:55 AM
yeah, they're seperate 1"x 1" cards. it's just easier to photograph them when they're on one card.

12-26-2008, 04:17 PM
I need to withdraw from this swap. So sorry!

12-26-2008, 10:05 PM
So sorry katilady. Hope all is well.

12-28-2008, 02:36 AM
Here are my inchies - they will be going out in the mail tomorrow

12-28-2008, 03:04 AM
Darling birds, Jonquil! Love them all, hope I get one!!!

12-28-2008, 09:00 PM
Here are my birdies! They have a watercolor background, stamped birds with text and bordered with ink pad.

12-29-2008, 11:31 AM
I love the background, wonderful job!

They look lovely to me!

01-04-2009, 02:34 PM
Having been away, I have finally had a chance to open all my mail. The inchies received have been truly amazing, adorable, and extremely well done. I know you will ALL be pleased that you are in this swap!!

Recent arrivals have been from:
obvious front, purpleart, jitterbug, cherbearvox,
mingo, betzzz, jonquil, wigbag, and ergobeck.

You have truly outdone yourselves, and I sincerely thank you for all the extras!!!
Can't wait until I can start sending them back out so you can share in the eye candy!

This last batch of posted birdies are great! jonquil, teri. cherbearvx, Bright-Spark and pithier - I just got a chance to look at your scans today and every bird is adorable.

01-06-2009, 03:23 PM
My Inchies are on their way to Philadelphia - was great fun making them - can be seen in my Gallery - 12 for swap + one for Host :)

01-06-2009, 05:56 PM
I mailed my inchies out yesterday. Some are posted in the gallery under this swap name; I couldn't get the full set of inchies to scan properly (new scanner....learning curve!), but the 4 I did scan give the idea.

01-06-2009, 08:23 PM
Lady Watersnake, your arrived safely today!

01-07-2009, 06:50 PM
complicious, your lovely birds have flown in!

Love your birdies' little wings and eyes Janet!

THX for the comments - they sure were fun to create!

looks like a partridge to me J33 - am I still stuck on Christmas or what?

01-13-2009, 10:43 AM
did you receive mine that hitched a ride with egrobeck's?

01-13-2009, 07:59 PM
Messmaker, I will have to pull out the envelope and check. Usually I take a quick peek and know who has sent their's in by the outside envelope. I'll be back to you later.

01-15-2009, 12:17 AM
Yup Messmaker. Your birdies were right where you said they would be!

01-15-2009, 12:24 PM

Hi everyone, Can someone pm me with Shoreart's address, please? I've pm'd her requesting it but she hasn't been on the thread since the 15th. I hope everything's okay with her and she's not come down with something. Anyway, I need to get my birds flying out of here. So, if anyone can help with the addy, many thanks to you. :err:;) Berkeley Elisabeth

Sorry ladies. I myself flew south with the birds to do a little diving in Mexico. My internet connection is limited somewhat...sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't. I am fine, although the weather right now in Cozumel leaves a lot to be desired. Warm it isn't!
I won't be back until Sunday, so I won't get to the swap probably until Tuesday. Plenty of time for everyone's birds to arrive.

01-22-2009, 08:46 PM
oh, I so envy you, fellow diver!! what a fab dive destination, too!

01-25-2009, 11:12 AM
I haven't had a chance to look into the envelopes yet, but inchies arrived from Genesis, Carolina Soap Chef, KatieV and teri. I'll check the list later in te day, but I think we are all in!

01-30-2009, 08:38 PM
Well, I just got finished going through all the inchies...and it so exciting!! The results are really wonderful!!! I know everyone will be pleased.

Please be patient with receiving them. I had to clean off my diningroom table for a Superbowl party on Sunday, so I won't be able to switch them out until Monday..sending them on Tuesday. Since I have been known to accidently send someone back their own piece of art, I am taking my time, and writing down in a spreadsheet where all the individual inchies go. This will just make the whole process a little longer, but at least you won't get any of your own back.

I traders to be given during the week. If you can, please let people on the thread know whose inchies you received. And REP is always appreciated.

Thanks for an absolutely GREAT swap!!:yes:
