I am part of a group of people who like to make
inchies and some of us more or less gather round at Inchybyinch blog where we get a new challenge weekly. This week's challenge was shells. I knew just what I wanted to do and it's probably because of Kate's Watercolor Pencil Workshop I am in currently.

I took a one inch square piece of watercolor paper and drew in a very basic beach scene. I wetted it down and voila! There it is - the seaside! Then I took a shell and glued it on over my little scene and added some words. One inchy done!

I had fun with this one. I hope you enjoy seeing it. Maybe you'd like to give an inch a try. If so, drop on by Inchybyinch where you'll see the week's theme. You make your inchy and leave the link in the comments section. We'd love to have some more people join in.


  1. It look wonderful! I love the watercolour background!

    Thank for passing on my blog, my inchies are not the first ones, I've made a lot, but everytime I don't like them, because I'm asking too much from myself! And I'm ATC size addicted, so inches are a truly challenge for me!

  2. Being a lover of the sea I'm ashamed to say I missed this beautiful posting of your art! I am so glad that I found it. There is nothing more pleasing to the senses (in my view) than something from the sea.

  3. Thanks Shay. My sister and son love the sea too (more than I do). I'm glad you liked my tiny offering.

  4. I was about to say the shell looks so real and then I read above and realized it is real...what a nifty idea!


I like being part of a community. Please share your thoughts about my blog with me. Hope you have a wonderful day!
