Daisy Yellow Art ICAD Challenge - Week 4

 Hello Everyone!

Here are my latest collaged index cards for Tammy of Daisy Yellow Art's ICAD Challenge.








I hope you enjoy looking at this week's ICADs. I look forward to reading your comments, which are very much appreciated. I love hearing which ones are your favourites.

Before I go, I have a pic of myself with the gorgeous Samson. He's an Australian Labradoodle, who regularly stays with my friend Debbie when his owners are away. Unfortunately Debbie and her husband have Covid, so this week I'm helping them out by walking Samson. I love getting my doggy fix 😁


And yes, I should have finished my mouthful of cake before I took the selfie πŸ˜‚

Until next time...

Daisy Yellow Index Card A Day Challenge - Week Two

 Hello All.

I know I said I would post these on Mondays, but here they are, just a couple of days late. 

Life has been getting in the way of art lately. We just had a tiring but lovely, long weekend at our daughter's new home, the ground floor flat of a Victorian house, helping her to get the garden in a fit shape for a summer of parties and BBQs. It was lovely to visit Bristol finally, she's been living there over two years now. It's a beautiful city, and she loves it. 

So here are my week two ICADs.

Day 7 - I actually used the prompt, which was 'ROOT'.


Day 8


Day 9


Day 10


Day 11


Day 12


Day 13


I'm enjoying doing some collage art again, hope you enjoy seeing them 😊

Thanks for visiting. I hope to do some visiting of your blogs too.

Daisy Yellow ICAD 2022 and The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

 Hello All.

Our Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend is over, and what a weekend of celebrations there were. We didn't venture up to London, but watched it all in the comfort of our living room, but we did have a lovely street party in our little road yesterday. It was great to get together with our neighbours, and thankfully the forecast rain didn't materialise. We all brought plates of food for everyone to share, and it was a marvellous feast. Lots of people expressed the wish for an annual street party. Here are a couple of photos that one of my neighbours took. Unfortunately lots of backs, including mine. I'm a little to the right of the centre, with my red hair and blue and cream striped fleece.


Our neighbour across the road has a new garden room, which came in handy to keep the food out of the elements.

Now to my ICADs. It's the 12th year of Daisy Yellow's annual ICAD challenge, where you create art on an index card every day during June and July. I decided to do collages on mine, with some teabags and stitching too. I'm hoping to use up some of my collage fodder. Here are my first six ICAD collages.

Day 1/61

Day 2/61

Day 3/61

Day 4/61

Day 5/61

Day 6/61

I shall be blogging my ICADs on Mondays. I hope you enjoy seeing them.

Thanks for visiting me today,

June 2022 Art Journal Calendar

 Hi Everyone!

Happy June to you all! And a very happy Platinum Jubilee weekend to my UK friends. I hope the sun shines on your celebrations.

Today I'm sharing my June art journal calendar spread. 

I used some recent gelprints for the background, and my journaling shapes are fish, to tie in with Mia's new Fish theme at Art Journal Journey

I think my background looks like waves and bubbles, perfect for my stencilled fish.

And here's my completed May calendar...


Thanks for visiting me today,

Alison
