Nautical Inchies

Nautical Inchies 1
I have never done “inchies” before …. so I thought I would have a go …. oh my life, I like to work small, but this is ridiculous,  I almost needed reading glasses over my reading glasses!
Nautical Inchies
I decided to start off very simply, using four nautical charms I already had and stuck to two main papers, plus tiny scraps of a couple more to add a bit of contrast.

I’m not sure if there are any rules to inchies, if so I have probably broken them, because once I added the silver matting they were everso slightly over the inch!!

We've been moving house Helen and I've a good few days to catch up in your blog and my haven't you been busy!! Your pendants, your microslide's, memory frames . . . everything is simply gorgeous! What lovely gifts they would make that is if you have it in you to part with them, I dont think I would!

Oh these are wonderful! I'm having a beach wedding abroad and so everything is going to be 'beach themed' (original or what?!). I've added these to my "ideas board" and will definitely figure out a way to incorporate them! Eeee excited!

They look fantastic Helen!... I'll go look out some glasses first right enough....

Great idea for a Father's day theme - we have a father in this house who would love that! Fab as ever 'Fabulous Fiddle Fart!!' Janex

Wow they are gorgeous - what a fab way of using up your very small scraps.

Never done inchies before and couldn't really see a use for them but grouped like you have on a card they are really effective.

Thanks for sharing with us.

As far as I am aware Helen.. no rules as such for the inches except that they are an inch square. Totally loving your inches, the detail is stunning. Not had a go with them myself only admired from afar. Will add it to my 'Must have a go soon' list.
