JFF - Week 14 - Inchies


Over on JFF this week it's Neet's turn to decide on the monthly theme, she has chosen 'size matters'.  The first week, it's inchies.  No, you aren't mistaken, this is not an inchie (1x1), it's a fat page (4x4).   I created the background using the new TH distress stains, wild honey and forest moss.  I stamped the images with walnut stain distress ink.  I used the spellbinders labels 2 dies to mount the main image.


I then cut the fat page into 16 1 inch squares.  I mounted them in a wooden frame I'd covered in gesso and went around the edges with walnut stain distress stain.
