Inchie and Twinchies

Hi All who pop by.

Yesterday was really sunny and hot and I thought summer had arrived at last but today it is dismal and rather cold on the NE UK coast. Think I may go for a longish walk as it is better to do that when it is cooler.

Well it is Monday again so time for Every Inchie Monday to have a new challenge. The theme this week is 'Story' but with only an inch square to work on I couldn't write much of a story

Always love a good Love Story with the poor maiden being chased by a villain and a hero

I also did some Twinchies for the Show Us your Twinchies Challenge-beautiful samples by the team as always.

The subject this time is In a English Country Garden so it was off to look at the photographs of our garden which is just right for this challenge

I made three of them smaller then added a brush strokes effect to them to make them look more Monet.

Then I stuck them onto the 2x2 inch backgrounds and did the edges with Promarkers.  Nearly forgot I stuck some peel-offs onto them--still lots of peel-offs to go but the pile is going down.

Have good day all

Love Chrissie xx
