I know the title doesn't make sense, LOL sometimes that the hardest part of the blog. Figuring out the catchy title. Maybe I am just over thinking that part....right?....Maybe? LOL
Anyways, this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Elephant! I thought after last weeks easy theme of Giraffe that I would have a harder time designing this week. But I was surprised how quickly I came up with the design of the elephant rearing up his trunk. It was the only way I was gonna get something on my inchie that would look like an elephant. But I love him, he is a cutie!
In this inchie there are 4 colors of Delicas. 2 shades of grey, one ivory color and for the background I used a matte transparent orange.
Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the other 'elephants in the room'. LOL sorry I couldn't help myself! I would like to say hello and thank all the new Inchers that are here this year. Have a blessed and creative week everyone.
I love your beaded Inchie, what a wonderful idea!ReplyDelete
Stunning inchie--you always amaze me with your bead workReplyDelete
He is a cutie! En he looks very well on your inchie :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you TrompkeDelete
Oh yes! Those colours are wonderful :-)ReplyDelete
Brilliant as usual, how to get an elephant on an inch in beads, leaves me amazed.ReplyDelete
Thanks Wendy. I feel the same when I look at everyone's inchies as wellDelete
This is awesome. How long does this take you to do? It would take me forever. I also wondered do you plan on paper first? What a neat talent!ReplyDelete
Thanks Cathy, it takes me about 20-30 minutes to bead the inchie. I actually have a bead program called beadtool, I am able to pick out the stitch, size of beads and type of beads that I want to use and design what I want, I then print it out and work from there. Sometimes the designing can take time but i love all of it.Delete
Cute inchie. You know an elephant with raised trunk brings good luck. Cleverly done!
I did not know that Paula, thanks for letting me know that. I also fixed the link, thanks for letting me know that as well.Delete
