First one I missed was GIRL. I used an image from a postcard in my collection. I had used the same image before, but I just love it so much, I wanted to use it again, slightly differently though -
Next one on the list was STONE. I really have no idea why I picked this stone up when I was collecting shells on the beach last year, but I had it in my all-sorts box ever since. Bit of Distress stickles to simulate sand, little bit of sky blue chalk ink and that was the STONE inchie done -
Last week's inchie was RUIN. I drew this ruined church with the broken stained glass windows separately, cut it out and glued it to the prepared inchie -
There, thats me all caught up with the inchies. And now on to the tags. We are going through the alphabet and I had chosen antique/vintage images for my ongoing theme. I had missed the letters C, D and E while I was away.
I chose CORSET for the letter C. I love the old advertisements for corsets, so I scanned in an ad from a 1909 French magazine called Je Sais Tout. I also scanned an ad from a furniture company and used that as a background for my corset lady, which I coloured by hand a little -
For the letter D I chose DRESS, because there have been some amazing dress creations over the years. None more amazing than in the period when these sort of dresses were popular -
Letter E, well that was a no-brainer, it had to be the EIFFEL TOWER of course, as I had just been in France for 3 weeks. I use this image of the Eiffel tower a lot, it is from a postcard in my collection -
I think for the next few days I will have to get busy and restock my Etsy shop, it is getting very low on French treasures. And of course I have to draw a winner from all the lovely people who visited my blog during Vicki's GYB party. I think I shall do that tomorrow, Sunday seems like a good day for it.
Until then, toodlepip and thank you all so much for stopping by. xxx
