Every Index Card a Day
season lasts exactly sixty-one days (from June 1st to July 31st
) so it's ridiculous to say this was the fastest ICAD ever; but nevertheless it definitely felt much faster than usual! Here's my final round up of cards for ICAD2021. If for any reason (severe insomnia?
) you need to see ALL the cards, you can click this link
day 54: off prompt doodles
i saw a similar idea on instagram... layered pages of doodles and leaves, with little patterns and intricate edges. i wish i had bookmarked it so i could send you off to see it!
day 55: off prompt collage
on this night i realized at about 11:30pm that i had not posted my ICAD; then shortly after, i realized that i hadn't MADE it, either! this might be the fastest collage EVERRRRRR!
day 56: dot mandala monday
conversely, i made this dot mandala around week two, shoved it into my book, and forgot all about it!
day 57: off prompt rainbow
yep... right up to the end i'm into hand cut patterns with stitching on top.
day 58: off prompt
this idea is sooooooooo much cooler inside my head, and at some point i hope i'll manage to translate that coolness onto a sketchbook page or card, because this definitely isn't it. but there are times you need to make the wrong thing (or a few wrong things) before you can figure out why it's wrong, and then (if you're lucky) how to make it right. all part of the process!
day 59: pocket
i made a slightly smaller than usual library pocket (with my score-board) and then trimmed down --and collaged-- a swedish library card to fit.
day 60: off prompt
this was going to be a much more traditional/pretty hawaiiana/floral type collage; but then i found this adorable island-dwelling malolo (flying fish) and changed course.
day 61: forward
i really couldn't move forward into "civilian" life without saying a huuuuuge THANK YOU to tammy garcia
and the instagram ICAD community
. thanks also to anyone who's been reading these posts, i've loved every minute of ICAD2021 and am already looking forward to june 1, 2022!
