inchie twinchie mirror (GPP "make it your own")



I made some more tiles in the style of Laurie Mika today..I just love her book "mixed mosaics". I had a large collection of inchies and twinchies that I had received from swaps off UK Stampers and I didnt know what to do with them. At first I was just going to cover the mirror with the tiles I made today but then I thought why not display some inspiring twinchies & inchies made by some talented artists from UK Stampers combined with some of the tiles I have made. So in a way I have taken some art made by others and combined it with my own art to make a mirror in my own style..and this is what this month's Green Pepper Press Challenge is all about..making it your own.

Love the tiles you have made - and a great photo frame - brilliant use of inches and twinches.

Lorraine - first, bravo for putting to use all the fab tiles. So often with a swap we just sit with the pile of goodies, admire them, then tuck them away. Using them is great, especially as you made it your own. Way more YOU than if you had made a piece that looked like my friend Laurie's work. Double bravo. Thanks for sharing with the team.

Very cool, and so personal. I'm not sure I would have had the patience, but the result is stunning.
Inchies I understand, so are twinchies 2" square?
