Every Inchie Monday-Pavillion



Well, this truly was a challenge. From the moment I read that the next challenge was going to be Pavilion I started hearing a band playing "In the Good Ol' Summertime". 
I had to dig for a lamp stamp, so I sure don't have any Pavilion stamps. That leaves me with my less than stellar drawing skills. 
I punched the 1" square out of some of the watercolor paper that I had practiced with Clean Color Brush markers. This square was punched from the blue and green area of the background. An 01 Mircron pen and some PrismaColor pencils and about 30 minutes of puttsing around this is the Inchie I was left with. I didn't have my magnifying glasses on or even my readers, just plain old eyes. Believe you me the printing looked a lot better to me before I ran this Inchie through PicMonkey. So when you read the words squint a little and they won't look so messy.
Try to picture in your mind a much slower pace of life where people actually took the time to stroll to the town square and sit on some canvas lawn chairs or even on an old quilt in the evening to hear the town band play some tunes and maybe even hum along. 
I'm sure the other entrants have come up with some cleaver Inchies, be sure to click on the link above and see what can be fitted on a 1" square.

Happy Creating--

So pretty and it does bring back memories of hearing the band practice in the park at night when I was a child. Too bad those days are gone. Well, at least here in the big city.

Beverly, you made a very nice drawing on your teenie square. Love the thought of the band striking up a melody on a warm summer night. Imagine if we could still hear... Have a brilliant day! c

I remember being taught 'In the good old summertime' in school. Don't think they do that anymore either! great invocation of an era and lovely pavilion.

It makes me think that this is Chapter 1 of a book where it ends, "and they lived happily ever after."
