Inch By Inch - Keys


I haven't been participating in he Inch by Inch weekly challenges for a while, but this week the theme is keys and as I have some new tiny little keys that Joseph found for me on one of his trips to Perth, I had to spend a few minutes creating an inchie!

In Misty Mawn's Art Retreat class she used glossy magazine pages to lift off paint and I found my pages ended up looking really interesting so I couldn't throw them out! This inchie uses a bit of that painted paper as a background and it has a little gate image stamped on it - it is the perfect size for an inchie. I don't think I have ever used it before - it was in a grab-bag I bought many years ago when I was less selective about my stamp purchases. And I love that cute little key even if it has resulted in bit of a blurry picture!

What a perfect inchie! And those keys are favourites of mine. I live in some fear that i will run out LOL. What a joy to have a hubby who chooses such great gifts.

Hi
Just had a clear out/tidy up in the house and in one of the 'throw it in the drawer' drawers, I found lots of little old keys accumulated over many years - and I have now put them in a box in the workroom TO USE!!!!! on pieces in the future. Your blog has just reminded me.
Cheers

Very nice inchy. The gate goes really well with the key idea. Hmmm, what's inside there? I've missed a few weeks also. It really is good to be doing these tiny challenges again.

Love that inchie Debbi! Must have a go at making some one day, they look like so much fun and a good way of using left over bits.
