Itty Bitty Inchie Charm Easels


Vintage spoons turned into little easels...I'm in production! I will be listing these on ETSY
For Pink Saturday...I painted my pink birdie on watercolor paper and added a touch of glitter
I knew there were these things called inchies, so I googled it. They are little pieces of art work done on one inch squares. But I also notice there was no way to display them without mounting them onto something bigger. I stamped BIRD with my metal stamps. These spoons are perfect! I'll be getting some forks out soon.
This was a fun painting. I have a little bit of beautiful French watercolor paper left, I smeared it with Goldens Absorbant Ground then painted with acrylic and watercolor. I love all the texture.
Happy Pink Saturday to all!! Thank you Beverly

Hi again Laurie,
I forgot to tell you that the packaging on my spoon was the cutest. I cut out the rose you painted on it so I can pin it to my bulletin board. Also the sweet little candy bar and thank you card were so cute. thank you!
