My very first ever Twinchies (2" X 2" art pieces)
I joined in a facebook group Twinchie Swap as I hadn't ever made any and wanted to try my hand at them. I do have an on-going Inchie project. A one inch art space is pretty challenging. Which is why it is still on-going. A two inch space is much easier.
I started with a Color Burst base cut from my many testing pieces. I then white embossed a design on each watercolor background. From there I added punched or die cut pieces also from the Color Burst testing pieces.
This was a really fun project. It took me a bit to decide how I would mail them. The Twinchies are placed on this backing card with removeable tape. My partner can remove them easily, rub her finger over the tape residue and it comes right off. I love the stuff for temporary positioning. It leaves no mark behind. I added a little watercoloring along the edge of the backing card to dress it up some. I love the effect it created. So fun when we try out our "what if I do this" ideas and they work!
Of course I had to make an artsy envelope for the Twinchies to travel in. The harlequin design is done with regular watercolors on a mixed media paper. The flourish is stamped with Archival Ink and the dots are some black watercolor through a stencil.
I had a blast making this whole swap item! There are some Twinchie starts set aside here. I'm toying with an on-going Twinchie project now.
Like I need another project in progress!
Happy Mail Day!
