I am a cardmaker and scrapbooker, and I pulled out many of my supplies and tools for this project. Some of the inchies use scrapbooking paper, and some of them use painted paper. My kids used watercolours and watercolouring paper to paint some paper with swatches of Fall colours. The watercolours add a nice texture, and they worked really well for falling leaves
Here's a few shots of some of the kids' work.
Some close ups of the Inchies. I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, and so most of my tools come from their line of products. These sunflowers were made using some patterned paper (the denim background??) and various SU punches. I used the Petal Punch and the 1" circle punch here.
The background on this inchie is patterned paper, and the leaves are punched out of painted watercolour paper using the petal punch. The children then cut out the word FALL and glued the letters on individually.
The full moons were made on painted watercolour paper. They attached a 1" circle punched out of a yellow post-it and then painted over it with black paint.
The tree silhouettes were made using diffusing paper. The children coloured on the paper with water based markers and then painted over the ink with water. The colours blend together well. When it was dry, the children painted the trees on with black paint. The leaves were stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on some patterned paper.
The candy corn was made by drawing a triangle, and colouring it and then cutting it out. The children then cut out the letters to spell corn.
And finally, the little crow in the middle was very simple. I gave the children an inchie cut out of newspaper. The children drew their bird with a pencil, then they used a black marker to colour it in. The googly eye was added later.
