I Love…Twinchies!

Okay, to be honest, until a month ago I could take or leave twinchies (the big brothers of the inchie world), but I really enjoy Artchix swaps.  They make the submitted artwork into collage sheets for all the players and always include a few extra goodies as well.  A swap package from Artchix is like a party in the mail!

On to the twinchies.  What are they, exactly?  Well, an “inchie” is a 2-dimensional piece of artwork that measures exactly 1″ square.  Twinchies measure 2″ square.  The piece I made for the Mind Wide Open challenge this month (see previous post) is comprised of nine twinchies adhered to a background.  Simple, really, and fun to make.

The Artchix swap theme is “I Love…” and we’re to use the colors green, pink and/or red in our creations.  What do we love?  It can be anything!

I really look forward to getting my swap returns – the work in the swap gallery so far is phenomenal.

Interested in joining the fun?  It’s easy as pie; check out the Artchix Yahoo group.  There’s a postcard swap coming up soon and an “I Love Artchix” ATC contest going on right now.  You can download collage sheets from their shop and get started right away!

    Inchies and twinchies are quite the challenge for me, as I have to really abbreviate my thoughts and elements. Challenge is good. These are fun–good color combo.

    Love your Twinchies – just beautiful! I’m an ARTchix fan too and had a lot of fun making my first twinchie size collages … high fives on your cool collages!
