1" art squares - Inchie's - for Judy

Here are the 1st of my 1" art squares for a trade on my group textile challenges. Judy asked for bright pink, and I was in luck! In school we dye fabric 4 times a year with year 8, I use cyan, yellow and magenta for tie dye and we colour mix. So left over from the last one I had a piece of cotton half bright pink and half turquoise ( I know Judy loves this combination as it features strongly in her work). On these i have managed to pack in a lot. Paper casting with solvy in the bottom left hand corner, Middle left is stitching and painting with emulsion and then with pink ink! Then highlighting with silver. The top right square has fabric and fabric mesh ribbon beads ( fullfilling the TC bead challenge for this month too!) There is also a bit of felt melting and printing too, and brads and beads of course. I thought I might have been squared out but I have really enjoyed these. I am nearly finished with Lynda's black and white set, just a couple more beads to add.

Oh! Carol these are just gorgeous. I am keeping an eye out for these little one inch squares since this is the first time I have made them. I would hate the let myself down with this. I think I may start on mine today.

My favourite colour Carol - these are scrummy! I am very disappointed now that I missed these challenge - they are great.
