The Wall Project

I decided to start a new project today. I'm calling it The Wall Project.

You see, I'm feeling very creative today, but I just do not feel like scrapbooking photos, or making cards or doing a big altered art project. So I racked my brain for a project I could do, that wouldn't necessarily take a long time (in case I lost my mojo) and one that if I didn't finish right away, I would be ok with that (I get panicky when I don't finish something I start).

I started looking around my studio and realized just how bare my walls are. But the thought of just sticking up layouts or doing another shadow box did not appeal to me. I'm not a good painter so paining designs would not work either. Then I remembered a while back seeing these things called "inchies" that scrapbookers were making and trading (google it and you'll see what I mean).

I always thought they were neat and looked like fun to make but never really saw a purpose for them. Until now... goal is to fill up my scrap walls with 1inch - 4inch altered "squares". Sort of like a scrapbookers wallpaper I guess! So whenever my mojo needs a boost and I don't feel like working on a big project, I can create a few of these squares whenever I feel like it, stick'em on my wall and just keep adding to my collection!

Ok, so maybe it's a weird idea. And maybe it won't even look nice. But I'm excited about it and I have to try it out to see if I like it or not. So here is my "before" picture for you. I promise to update every time I add more to The Wall Project!

Always full of weird ideas,


  1. I can't wait to see this when it is finished, sounds like a fab idea

  2. So far I'm having a total blast making these! Stay tuned for some pics coming soon!

  3. Oh Catherine!!! What a cool idea! I LOVE this idea. Can't wait to see some more!
