We are so excited to be included again in the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!
This really is a spectacular event and all the credit goes to Latisha Yoast for her vision and organization! She has created a wonderful way for all of us...to thank all of you...for the love and support that has enabled everyone on this list to continue to share their creativity. And, as we learned last year, this is a great way for us to introduce Inchie Arts - Art Squares to those unfamiliar with our products.
This year we introduced our Little Village kits, Original and 2. The response has been tremendous and as we, and others, continue to experiment with how they can be used, there is no doubt that these will become part of your year round papercrafting and card making. If you are looking for samples and ideas on how to use Little Village kits be sure and visit the Inchie Arts Facebook page.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to all the artists and crafters who shared their work with us!! You continue to inspire and demonstrate that Art Squares are the perfect substrate for everything from stamping and coloring, mixed media, Gelli Plate, die masking, watercolor, stencils, Pan Pastels, Stendoodling, photo collages, cubes, tags and so much more.

(created with select components from Little Village 2 and the I Love Christmas paper pad by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park Paper Co. )
We have been posting a few of these on our Facebook and Instagram the last few days and just wanted to take a minute to round up the projects, so you can view them all in one place.
As much fun as it is to stamp, color and embellish the Little Village components, it's pretty amazing the results you get from covering the pieces with pattern paper. We especially love using the paper selections from the very popular 6" paper packs! The papers in these packs have already been 'curated' so they will all work together making it hard to go wrong with your combinations if you just use the papers within the pack for your card or project.
In fact, when we were working with Kae Pea from RubberMoon during the conceptual development of Little Village, we sent her one of the first samples and she created this!!
And, there are so many different themed paper pads out there, like this winter themed Jack Frost pack from American Crafts (used to cover all of the pieces from the original Little Village) that your options are virtually unlimited.
We create a three panel piece using select components from both kits, and an added ATC Art Square background piece covered with papers from the Holly Jolly pad from Pebbles.
We were pretty excited when Kae Pea, owner of RubberMoon stamps agreed to let us share some of her wonderful Little Village creations with us.
One of the reasons that we love RubberMoon stamps is that they can be combined to create the most wonderful visual stories.
Beginning with a 4" white Art Square as her base and then using no less than 9 different RubberMoon stamps and 3 pieces from a Little Village kit she has created this adorable 'scape'. According to KP, the background was tinted using Pan Pastels, while the more vibrant colors were created using Acrylagouache. (I have just learned of this product from KP and am eager to give it a try)
Using the same materials as above on an ATC size white Art Square (one of these comes in each Little Village kit) and 4 small pieces from Little Village kits, I would guess that she used 10 different RM stamps on this one!
Be sure and visit RubberMoon to see all of the wonderfully imaginative stamps that can be used with Little Village kits to tell your very own stories.
Whether you have a few extra pieces left over from your Little Village kit(s), or you have discovered that you can cut up the carrier sheet that comes in the package to trim more bits and pieces from our signature matboard, don't throw them away!!
They make the perfect little banners for sentiments.
There always seems to be a holiday where we are running around looking for the perfect little gift box. So we keep a stash of shallow jewelry style boxes that have a top that measures 3-5/8" square. Of course this is the PERFECT size to cover and decorate with either 9 Inchie Squares, 4 - 1.5" Art Squares or 1 - 3" Art Square!
(if you frequent the Inchie Arts FB page you may have seen the Washi tape box tops in February)
Paint a white 3" Art Square with Bashful Blue and Wild Iris Twinkling H2O watercolor- dry completely.
