more ICADdery!

have i mentioned how much i ♥LOVE♥ this project? ok, yeah, like elebenty million times over the last three summers. but every year the index card a day project totally sparks my love of making "pointless" art that is only for me, and generally reinvigorates my creative energy. so yeah, i'm probably going to continue to enthuse about it publicly. anyway, here are a few more cards:

040: torn layers collage
for me ICAD is roughly divided between adventurously trying NEW stuff (particularly using paint and other wet media) ...OR... rewarding myself by making tiny little collages that don't make any sense, but do make me really really happy. obviously, this is one of the latter. :)

041: watercolor + pattern
i spend a fair amount of time trying to disguise or ignore the lines on most of my index cards, but every once in a while it's fun to embrace them!

042: plotting and skulduggery
the text and photo came from two different magazines, plus i'm pretty sure the japanese text is upside down; but i still really LOVE this one!

what are you doing this weekend? whatever it is, i hope it's fun, and creative, and maybe involves a tiny bit of plotting and skulduggery. but... you know... in a good way, darlings! ♥♥♥


  1. I'm liking ICAD too! Love the top trading stamps collage. I was just thinking I should dig mine out for use. They all are wonderful!

  2. I love all of these - you keep inspiring me to try new things in my ICAD work. And I was reminded of how much I love the word "skulduggery"!

  3. These are all fabulous Lauren! And such great diversity, here, too, which I LOVE! You're very creative! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, take care, Ira x

  5. Hey, I got as far as buying a package of index cards. I don't think I could handle the pressure of a card a day IN ADDITION to my other crafty endeavors. But I'll continue to view YOURS with awe and admiration.

  6. Pointless art that's only for me... I LOVE IT!

    Love the ICADS, I am a real sucker for Green Stamps.

  7. Lovin' all of your variations ... so inspiring.
