This week I suddenly remembered that I have a one inch square punch. So I dug it out and made some nice frames for my inchies, instead of the unsteady ink borders I was using. Neat-O.
And here they are, my last set of catch-up inchies.
Killer: I dislike violence and horror so much that I haven't seen a horror movie since the Exorcist came out in 1973. So I chose to draw a killer whale, making him as benign looking as I could.
Khaki: Such a difficult colour to portray. I decided to go outside the box and draw the phonetic spelling of the word. Of course, there are two ways to pronounce this word and my picture only works for one of them (although I suppose a crow could say cack as well as caw).
Legal: Legal eagle is the phrase that came to mind. I borrowed the picture of the eagle from google, but added the scales of justice.
Lavender: Last but not least: Lavender. "Lavender Blue, dilly, dilly, lavender green" -- for some reason I sing these lines to myself all the time. It's a very old folksong, but the meaning is obscure. So here is my first inchie for lavender:
But I love the colour lavender and wanted to do it justice, so I found some lavender Swarovski crystal butterflies and added a few other lavender beads to a cross stitched base.
That's all folks -- I'm caught up!
