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!
