Inchy Challenge

I love trees so the Inchy By Inch challenge was appealing to me.  It’s not my favorite piece (to my friend Steph…I know, I know, never put out anything you don’t love!!!), but here it is:

inchytree

I started with drawing background colors on the (uncut) inchies with oil pastels.  Then drew the tree on with colored pencils.  I covered a chipboard with a towel that was from watercolor cleanup  and sealed with mat medium.  I then cut the inchies apart and glued them on top of the chipboard.

      Thanks…if there were “rules” it might be cheating, but since I go with the “no rule” policy it works!
