Some inchies I made for a trade - they had to include hats or crowns. I made the background using watercolour inks and then found 6 pouty faces. I just love vintage images with straight faces. Why did they never smile? Probably because no-one shouted 'say cheese'! Some of the images came from Lisa's Altered Art but two of them were a freebie off a blog and I've forgotten where I got them...... Oops. If you recognise them let me know :-) I used a Tim Holtz stamp to add the random numbers on the background. I just love random numbers but I'm not sure why. You might think I had an interest in maths or was even good at maths. Ha ha ha ha absolutely NOT! Added the crowns using my favourite old text (yeah yeah, with numbers on), a bit of glossy accents and of course a bit of stitching. It's quite challenging to stitch on a 1" square but a bit of cursing, and coaxing of the sewing machine and I got there :-)
Anyway, swine flu has arrived uncomfortably close to us here......I feel a journal page coming on......
