ICAD: the rest of week 7

(another awesome title, no?!)  :)

ok, so the bad news is that the best, coolest, most fun thing i've done ALL YEAR-- the amazing index card a day project at the daisy yellow art blog-- is winding down at the end of july. the good news is that tammy, who devised and hosted this incredibly inspiring project, will be posting daily paper prompts for the entire month of august!!! i'm excited because i was really hoping to take the energy and enthusiasm i have gained via ICAD and channel it back into a much more regular art journal practice, something which i have let slide this year, and which i was really missing! many thanks to miss tammy; can i get a "woohoo"?! ♥♥♥ 

(the following cards are all from the week 7 prompt list.)

 card #45: owl
everything here was in my "leftovers" box  except the tree and branch which i hand cut out of a scrap.

card#46: madala
i have ALWAYS wanted to try making one of these!!! i traced a few chipboard flowers and circles to get the main shapes, and then doodled to fill in the intermediate layers. i was absolutely IN LOVE with this before i colored it in; i still like it... just not quite as much...

card#47: graffiti
i think this one speaks for itself, which is excellent since i'm pressed for time; movin' to brooklyn to become a professional "tagger" lol! :)

card#48: strips of fabric
again, it does what it says on the box. i like the look of the ripped fabric, which IRL, has a lot of dimension to it, almost like ruffles, hence the name.

card#49: dreamy
i used a cloud mask and about 6 different inks to sponge and mist this; the moon is from an "extra" digi print i did; the stamps are from the dollar bin at michaels, and starting to lose their "cling". 

i'll be back on tuesday... times TWO... with city crafter and SOS posts. ciao, darlings! ♥


  1. Ooooh!!! My faves are the owl and the moon - these are SUPER fun! Love em! Hope you've had a great weekend so far!
    Shanna :)

  2. Whooohooo indeed!
    Very cool ICAD. I specially love the graffiti one. So glad to see you making AJ pages on a more regular basis now. I remember when I first visit your blog you where doing Heart of Art pages that Gina where hosting. My first meeting with Art Journal and thinking outside the box ;-)
    Wishing you a beautiful week!

  3. Another magical assemblage of art ... love each one (want to see more mandala w/o the color).

  4. Oh nice, I like the moon one too. I have fallen into the void. xox

  5. Amazeballs!! Love 'em all. The owl one is so fun, I love those leaves. The colours on the next two are wonderful. "Cheap frills", *snicker* awesome! Adore that last one. Dreamy, fer sure!

  6. These are all so amazing. And different. You are multi talented. One day I'll photograph and post my ICAD's...


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
