Inching Artists - Monotone

This week Linda of Inching Artists set the theme of "Monotone". I love monochromatic art and had a lot of fun last night making my inchies in cream and white with a touch of gold. They are all based on a photocopy of a collage I made some time ago that was constructed totally of small pieces of decorative paper and ephemera in this cream and white colourway. I had to look for very small embellishments as an inch square can look crowded very quickly!

Today I am trying to focus on the abundance in my life as I have had a very "flat" week and I am tired of my own thoughts. Two beautiful sources of abundance in my life - one big and one small - my son Josh is on his way home today for the summer as the uni year has finished (I love it when we are all together!) and the look of the double hanging basket full of ivy, trailing geraniums and chain of hearts outside my back door. The simplicity of cheerful pink flowers amongst masses of green leaves really appeals to me. The photo below is the side on view.
