This week we have another new guest hostess – the very talented Joan from Italy.  Joan is introducing us to “trinchies” – little 3 x 3 inch pieces of art.  They are a fun size and shape to work on, and that is your challenge.  Make a piece that measures 3 x 3 inches – the theme and style is up to you – in this instance it’s the size that matters!  Have fun!

Please note: I made a mistake when I uploaded the challenge on Monday morning – Joan has actually named these “thrinchies” which makes more sense than the way I spelled it – trinchies.  Sorry about that!

    How cool, thanks for the suggestion to go to 3 inches, inchies were just that little bit too small for me. posted a piece for this week’s challenge.

  29. Dena Bliss Says:

    Here is my first trinchie. Thanks for the challenge.

  30. Hi Di ( wow… that rhymes 🙂 🙂 🙂 )
    No problem about forgetting the H, thrinchie , trinchies, hey I just found out thru this challenge that they are also called …itty bitty………..but what the heck….the most important thing is that we all share our art and have fun in doing so and making friends in the long run too.
    I think the reason I thought of Thrinchie is because I teach English and most non speaking English speakers know how to count…one, two, three etc.
    Glad everyone so far has enjoyed the challenge it’s much appreciated…especially as this is my first time hosting..I was a little worried….but hey you’ve been just greyt
    to you all
