Daisy Yellow Art's ICAD Challenge 2024

 It's time for Tammy aka Daisy Yellow Art's 2024 Icad Challenge, and here are my first week's offerings, starting with my title card.

I've decided not to follow Tammy's prompts this year. I'm using my 100 day project gelprints amongst other things.









Thanks for visiting me today.

June Art Journal Calendar

 Hello All.

I'm a bit late posting my calendar, but here it is finally. I'll be honest and admit that I forgot. Lol!

I used my favourite technique of starting with a layer of collage, and my journaling shapes are birds, that also make me happy. So I'm linking up with Matilde's theme of 'What makes you happy' at Art Journal Journey.


To create the birds, I stamped one on some thin card, then carefully cut it out to make a stencil. I used another stencil to create a garden for my birds.


And here's my completed May calendar.


Thanks for visiting.

Jenny Grant free Art Retreat

Hello All.

I recently followed a free online art retreat run by artist Jenny Grant.

Day 1. We started by making some collage papers on old book pages, using acrylic paint and recycled mark-making tools.


Day 2. We used our collage papers and magazine images to create an art journal page.




On day 2 we also created a mini art journal with collage on one sheet of paper.







Day 3. We used collage and stencils, and drew a face on a large sheet of recycled card from the back of an old sketch pad.



This was a fun course, although it was only available for those 3 days.

Thanks for dropping by.

100 Days of Gelliprinting - Week 14 and the rest

 Hi Everyone.

Here are my final 9 days of gelliprints for the 100 day project. Thanks to all who have followed me on this journey. I've had a lot of fun creating collage fodder, mostly on wet strength tissue. I'm looking forward to using some in Daisy Yellow Art's upcoming ICAD challenge, which starts on 1st June.

Day 92


Day 93


Day 94


Day 95


Day 96


Day 97


Day 98


Day 99


Day 100


I really love that final print with all the edges of the last few days' gelliprinting sessions. I think if it's cut into vertical strips it'll make fab faux washi tape.

Big hugs, I'll be back soon with some other recent projects.
