EVERY INCHIE MONDAY

This week's topic is   AIR  You might think this would be a difficult topic to portray, but I didn't really have to think about it much at all because of our recent travels.  So here it is:


But don't think that because it is just a little Inchie that it didn't take much effort to do!  Because I didn't have my scanner, I first had to draw the inchie on an inch square.  Then I had to photograph it.  Then I had to put it from my camera's memory card onto the laptop. Then because it was WAY too large I had to resize it.  Then I had to crop it, straighten it, adjust the color, and add a border.  None of these steps was a straight forward 'one time hit a button and save' process.  To start with I didn't know how to resize, but with my sister's help and some knowledge of Paint I did it.  I learned several other new things from this lengthy process, so it was all worthwhile. 

Behold my Inchie!!

I had real trouble thinking what to do this week. I never thought of scuba!

Good inchie - and congratulations on learning all your new computer skills.

Sounds complicated, but it has certainly produced a worthwhile result.

It would be easy for me. I depend on air (oxygen) 24/7 nowadays.

Such a lot of work but so, so worth it.

I can't imagine creating a picture or painting in such a small space. I've done some patchwork piecing on a smaller scale lately and found that more challenging.
If I had the ability to draw or paint--it would be flowers adn cats.
