ICAD Week 4

 Hello Friends.

Today I have my Week 4 index card art from Daisy Yellow Art's ICAD Challenge to share with you.

Day 22 - Unexpected. 

I used only a tiny bit of collage and not my usual choice of colours, so it's unexpected from me.

Day 23 - Enchanted Forest

Day 24 - Bubble.

Day 25 - Dictionary.

Day 26 - Pinball. 

Decided to go abstract with this one, and hadn't intended it to look like a flag, as some people have thought!

Day 27 - Indigo.

Day 28 - Asanoha Pattern.

Attempted sketching freehand, not measuring the angles- 2nd time lucky (ish)!

Thanks for dropping by.

365 Somethings 172-179

 Hello All.

I'm catching up with sharing my collages for the 365 Somethings challenge, and I have two sets to show you today.

Somethings 172-175 

I wasn't thinking of patriotic colours and flags here, I just happened to have a red & white stripey paper bag that I thought contrasted well with the blue collage.

Somethings 176-179

I needed an image of an indigo plant for one of my ICADs, and used the leftovers of the print on these collages.

I hope that you've enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Thanks for visiting,

365 Somethings 168-171

 Hello Everyone.

Today I have another set of collages to share for the 365 Somethings Challenge.

My collage fodder stash must be getting smaller, but I can't see it myself 😂 I really love the contrast of the brown corrugated card with those blues and greens 😍

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

365 Somethings 164-167

 I have another set of small collages to share with you today, using some of my huge supply of collage fodder, one of my hand-carved stamps, and random book text. I added some gold paint for contrast. The stencilled texture paste was done on tissue for Catherine Rains' Collage Kickstart free class.

Wishing you all a happy new week.

ICAD Week 2

 Hello friends.

Today I'm catching up with sharing my week two index cards for Daisy Yellow Art's ICAD challenge.

Day 8 - Butterfly

Day 9 - Magenta or Fuchsia

Day 10 - Signpost

Day 11 - Glyphs.

Day 12 - Moonlight.

Day 13 - Superstition.

Day 14 - Typewriter.

I'm enjoying the challenge of keeping to the far. I used to really worry about drawing things like the typewriter, but not so much these days.

Before I go, as it's Father's Day, I have a card to share that I made for my lovely Dad.

It also happens to be my parents' 63rd wedding anniversary today, and here's the card I made for them.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

365 Somethings 160-163

 Hello Friends.

I have another set of collages to share for the 365 Somethings challenge.

The bases of my collages have all been from recycled materials, mostly cut up cereal boxes. 

I did enjoy adding some bubble wrap white gesso splodges to these ones :D
