Every Inchie Monday - Peace


This week the theme at Every Inchie Monday was peace...I was sort of stumped.  What to do?  I could have grabbed one of our little peace charms at work, but I'm not a "peace sign" kind of person.  Instead I tried to think of colors that would mean "peace" to me.

After I made the one, I realized a few inchies were what I needed for a recent art journal page that was a bit boring.  My inchie was the same color family as the borders so I made 4 more and added them to my art journal layout.  I think it looks a lot better with the little detailed inchies floating around the edges.  This page is now all ready for my babblings when I'm ready to add them.




The background of my inchies is bubble wrap watercolor with blue strips of foreign language text pages.  I put dark blue pigment ink on the edges and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The inchies are then wrapped with emerald green embroidery floss.

I agree with you about green and blue being peaceful colors. And, the extras are great additions to your journal page. Well done!

It's nice to see inchies being put to a use. I have mine in a baggie waiting for inspiration. Maybe I will mount all of them when I'm finished.
