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.

SO WHO WANTS AN INCHIE BIRD COLLECTION??

Shoreart: question for you - Would eggs count as a part of a bird (since it's a baby bird waiting to happen)?

Yipee would love to play! Please sign me up.

shoreart
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?

Cool!! I think I'll do this (http://gomakesomething.com/ht/recycled/serendipity-squares/) for my backgrounds for these :)

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

shoreart
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.

Bright-Spark
11-01-2008, 02:15 PM

Janjo33
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:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/1430/large/1_bird_inchie_1.jpg

shoreart
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!

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.

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.

shoreart
11-13-2008, 02:25 PM

xraypinky
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.

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.................

shoreart
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!

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

here's mine and they're ready to go! they're brighter in person, my scanner just likes to darken things sometimes.

shoreart
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!!

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.

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!

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.

did you receive mine that hitched a ride with egrobeck's?

shoreart
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.

shoreart

Yup Messmaker. Your birdies were right where you said they would be!

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.

oh, I so envy you, fellow diver!! what a fab dive destination, too!

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!

shoreart
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:
