"Hot" Off the Presses

I hope that everyone has had a great Easter.  Mine was great.  I celebrated my birthday and Easter by going out to dinner with my Mom and my kids.  Then me and my daughter searched all over town for some Cadbury's Cream Eggs.  (Those things are very elusive!), while my son went to work a half day at his new job. 

This week's theme at Every Inchie Monday is "Hot" and I had tons of great ideas.  Ideas that I am sure many of the other artists over at Every Inchie Monday thought of as well.  I thought about flames, or writing the word "HOT" with flames behind it.

The problem is that I am 'limited' by my own overactive imagination.  Which, many times will remember and rehash old ideas into new ones.  I know EVERYBODY does that as well.  But I try not repeat myself.  But I try not repeat myself.  ;)

When I thought about the theme this week, my first thought was flames, but I did that on 4.16.12. 




Then i thought about doing some wild random colors with shades of fire, but then i did that one on 3.3.14. 



Then I thought about doing flames coming off the sun kinda design, but then I did that one on 1.23.12. 



About that time it was almost dinner time!  That was it!  Food is hot right?  But then again I have already done food as well on 12.23.13.



GRRRRRRRRR!  Then it dawned on me.  Food has steam and steam is HOT!  YEA!  I got it done, something that I had not thought of yet, lol.  Until next time that is when I got to think of something else similar.

In this inchie I used 3 colors of Delicas, light blue, white, and matte transparent grey.  This is a hot bowl of mashed potatoes, (or rice) with steam coming off of them.   Hope you like them.



Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the great artwork from all these talented ladies.

  5. Trillian, that is the hardest part. So many ideas that look easy in my head but getting it out of my head is the really hard part. But I love your inchie as well.

  7. It was nice to look at your other little inchies related to HOT. Steam is a great one and turned out so well with your beading.
