Jordan's Inchies!

My daughter Jordan loves to create stuff as much as I do. She agreed to let me photograph her process of making some Inchies. Inchies are simply 1" x 1" square pieces of artwork. You can learn all about Inchie Art Squares at Ellen's blog and can find all the supplies at Ellen's store HERE.

Okay, here we go! This is my little red headed cutie Jordan! She sits cross legged like this ALL the time.....when crafting, playing her guitar, reading. She's such an artsy girl! Here she is digging through my stash of Lockhart stamps to find just the right ones for Inchies.
She made her own Inchie finder by punching a 1" square out of a scrap piece of cardstock. She loves pink just like me! An Inchie finder is helpful to frame out that 1" square so you can get a better idea of what the finished image will look like.
Here's Jordan stamping all of her Inchies with Palette Black Noir ink. She's very precise, just like me. That's her little finger pointing to her stamped Inchies. She chose a food theme for all of her Inchies. I thought the girl was never gonna stop picking out stamps from Karen's collection!
Here she is coloring an Itty Bitty Radish. She remembered that radishes from Grandma's garden were colored red and faded to white. Such an eye for detail! Where does she get this???And for Jordan, it's all about the bling! Here she is showing you all the wonderful options you can choose from to embellish your Inchies. She's particularly fond of AMuse twinkle stickers. BLING BLING!! I love her little Vanna White hand motions! And TADAAAAA! Her'es Jordan's finished Inchie Art Squares. I helped her with a few ideas but she completed all of these herself. She's nine! didn't she do a great job? I hope that you're able to zoom in on this photo so you can see them close up. (don't know why Blogger will not let us zoom in sometimes!)


Jordan keeps all of her Inchies in a decorated band aid tin. She'll keep a few displayed on the front with magnets and she'll switch them out from time to time. I think she's going to make a few for her locker at school too. And sometimes we just make ONE Inchies instead of NINE at one sitting! Such a fun project for the kiddos! Hope you enjoy!

Too cute! I love her gorgeous red hair. What a pretty daughter you have--and she's great at stamping & has good ideas as well. I love the "Peas and Thank you" sentiment on the peas inchie she made!

Karen said...

Jorday is as talented as her mother. The inchies are great, she has a good eye for decorating. I also have a redhead, she is 25. Patiently waiting for a grandbaby. Please thank Jordan for sharing her fabulous art with us.

Jordan, these are soo cute! I love them. And I really love the idea of a bandaid tin that you can stick magnets to. I would love to see your decorated tin. :)

Ann C. said...

Jordan does a GREAT job of stamping & coloring! You are very blessed to have such a creative daughter to take after you! :o)

Andrea Leigh said...

awwww very sweet! I have a 5 and a 8 year old and they both LOVE stamping with me... but my space is really only made for 1. You just inspired me to look into a little re-aranging of the room to accomodate another desk for them. They would SO LOVE it and we wouldn't be in each other's way which always makes it less fun! Thanks SO MUCH from me and my girls!!!!

Dottie K. said...

Jordan, you are a chip off the old block! Thanks so much for sharing your ultra cute inchies with us and I love all the bling you added to them. Both you and your Mom are so creative and talented! :o)

Maureen said...

What talent!! She sure does take after her mom!!

About the inability to click on the pix for bigger shot - if you move the entire code for the picture in HTML mode, it will keep the link. If you just drag and drop the picture in Compose mode, you'll lose the link. I had this same problem! Hope this makes sense!

Tami McBeain said...

Thanks for sharing your "creative process" with us Jordan! Your inchies are perfectly created,and I love the bling you added...(I love bling too!)

Mish,

She is just adorable! How great that she likes to sit and craft with you. My boys are just a little too rambunksious (spelling??) for anything more than stickers at the moment. Loved her work, always love yours! TFS!

Eveline said...

Hi Michelle, arrived at your blog through JustRite stampers. Have a wonderful week. The inchies your daughter made look great. The reason you can not make the pictures bigger on your blog is because you probably moved the picture while writing a new message. If you do that you can not zoom in. If you move the text instead, you will be allright.
Eveline.
