Itty Bitty Inchies

I remember when I started working on ATCs I was amazed at what people could do on such a small canvas.  2 1/2" x 3 1/2" was much smaller than what I was used to doing.  Recently, in one of my art trading groups, it was decided to have a go at inchies.  Whoo-wee...talk about small!  Creating on a 1" x 1" canvas is most definitely a challenge.  Fun though...;)

I have a thing for idioms. I don't know why, I guess they just seem fun to me and SO full of artsy potential.  I went with heart-themed idioms for my inchies.

This morning I made a bunch of gelli prints and I cut up a couple to use for these - great base to start from I think.  Can you guess which idioms I'm portraying?

Here's the list:
     Heart of gold
     Heart of stone
     Take heart
     Change of heart
     The way to a man's heart...
     Heart to heart
     (His/her) heart sank
     Home is where the heart is
     Wear your heart on your sleeve
     Cross my heart
     Pour your heart out
     Broken heart

Here's a little hint for one of them:

These were really fun to make especially once I got going.  Give itty bitty inchies a try!
