Inchie and Collage

Hello :) Nice to have you pop in at Jumbled Crafts and I hope you like what you find on this post.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Forest. A very large subject for an inch square but there are already some amazing entries to admire.

Here is mine which I drew in felt tips. I based it on a photograph we took when we were in a forest a while ago.

At Collage Obsession the theme this week is Making Marks-lots of ideas on what you can do both digitally and with other mediums. I do believe I could become obsessed with this sort of work and look forward to the challenges each week since I found the blog. My passion is to work with digital art and this gives me a reason to do it--do I need a reason?:) I think I do or I may take root in front of the computer screen.


I started off with this picture then smudge it with the smudge tool and various steps to create different 'marks' for my background. Then I added lots of brushes to give some feeling of texture.

I painted this face in Paint Shop Pro a while ago and used the airbrush tool for the face and other fancy brushes for the rest of it.

Now I had better get something useful done as I have been doing this since I saw the new challenge this morning. Anyone who likes ironing I have lots of it again :(

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x

  1. Great inchie and digital work Chrissie. I'm hopeless at it, must learn how to do digital.
    You can keep the ironing by the way.

  21. The inchie is great, but it's that collage that has completely stolen my heart - it's absolutely beautiful, Chrissie... see, this is why you can't afford to miss posts in Craftyblogland - I'm so glad I caught up with this. From the original photo to the digi-brushwork on that beautiful face, you've created something really special. And the words are wonderful - not met those before.
