Little, but not-so-square

I was reading some posts on my Inchies | One Inch Collage Flickr pool and saw a post by TheeCoyote asking if Inchies had to be square. Good question.

As winemakerssister pointed out, Inchies are traditionally square. The idea of whole pages of hearts (thank you grrl+dog) or other shapes though sounded lovely. So I came up with something different, a different kind of swap that wouldn’t offend the Inchie purists and wouldn’t distract from our beautiful little geometric goodness.

Tweanchies! Ok, it’s lame I know but it is the best I could do since I am still recovering from zombie attack. And “Twitchies” sounded too much like what I have been suffering with from studio withdrawals. I haven’t done art in so long I have a bad case of twitchies…

Tweanchies (pronounced tween chies) will be anything off shape, anything not SQUARE but no larger than one (1) inch in diameter. Hearts, moons, polygons, etc. Trim them as close to “square” in diameter as you can and don’t make them bigger than the one inch guideline. They can be used as charms but they are not charms…otherwise they would be called, well, charms.

I will be posting a swap in the near future so start playing with ideas! :::Valentine’s Day next year is going to see a set of hearts for sure!:::

Tweanchies, you heard it here first!
