Challenge #4: Tiny Art Challenge

Ready for another crafty challenge! Last month for Bad Girls, I had to create a small (4x4) piece of art work. The small size was so easy to manage and still had lots of possibilities! So for this challenge, let's see what you can create on a small scale!!

Need some quick ideas? This little page is probably my favorite! I used a piece of painting canvas and sketched a few flowers and then I used Gesso to paint over them. I added a few little pieces of paper to the top and bottom and sewed the title onto a piece of fabric, to add some dimension. (I think I may add a few more penciled flowers too!)



This page is super simple too! Just strips of paper, sewn together, with a small photo, and some little embellishments clustered together.


A little tag with lots of mismatch scraps was worthy enough of it's page. I love using postage stamps!



Ready to create a little work of art? Don't forget to post a link when you're done, and you have all day and tomorrow to create something fun!!

I really love all your art work you displayed. What a talent! Unfortunately I had to go to work and I did not have enough time to work on this challenge. I am sad about it... you inspire so i could get some cool stuff done.

We spent the whole day at an apple orchard and I got inspired to create a 4x4 mini Halloween piece that I might actually use in my son's scrapbook. Tara, thank you again for the wonderful challenge and the whole blog party!!! I LOVED it all!!!
