Twinchie challenge week 2

The challenge this week on the Twinchie blog is SUMMER - what summer I say - it has been raining steadily here again although thankfully looking a bit brighter now.  Anyway back to the twinchie and for a bit of fun and because I seem to be having a muddled week somehow I had a very quick play in Craft Artist and produced a summer scene which I then shrunk down to the regulation 2" size.  With hindsight I think I should have started with a square of the correct size but sadly more time to play at the moment - some weeks are like that I find. All in all this wasn't terribly successful but at least I've managed one challenge so far this week.

Edited to add one which is a bit more colourful and I started with a 2" 'canvas' on the screen in Craft Artist - pure fantasy of course and very quickly cobbled together.

This one looks smaller but in fact prints out at exactly 2"


  1. Love these Twinchies 2nd one is certainly a lot more colourful....great beach scene.


  2. Brilliant twinchies Val not thought of doing them in CA will have to have a go! Congrats at being honourably mentioned at ATS:)

  5. Well Val - I think both are amazing.... not sure if it would have made a difference starting on CA with the correct size as I've done things on a normal size and then changed the page layout to smaller and things do actually size down/up correctly. Now all I need to know is how to blend edges of a photo into the background on CA and I'll be sorted.....!

  7. Well I'd not even have managed to start these with a computer gizmo involved. The second one is particularly striking. Very interesting to see what a difference ensues when one varies the order of construction. Food for thought there.
