ICAD 2017...


Hey,

Happy Sunday!

Late post from me, I just got back from all day classes taught by Cheiron.

They were awesome and I learnt alot! AND the weather is glorious here in NYC - Summer = yay.

Today's post is about ICAD 2017 (Index Card a Day)..It is run by Daisy Yellow and it's awesome fun.

The idea is to make something with a 4x6 index card as your base every day. Prompts are provided, but you can go off prompt if you want. It runs from June 1st to July 31st. You can jump in whenever you want.

I have LOVED the first week, I got to dig out some fun stuff from my stash and step out of my comfort zone. Plus side being that I now have 7 gorgeous pieces of art. In the photo above they are in day order from bottom left clockwise.

I used so many different techniques and got all experimental..

I've decided to pick a favourite one every week and tell you about it, instead of boring you to tears by describing each one!!

My fave from week one is - Day 3: Vintage -


I love this, it came together so well. I covered the index card in patterned tissue paper and then painted over it with various shades of distress paint. I added the doily and distressed the edges of it with ink. The dress form I stamped onto white tissue, so it would look more transparent when added to the card. The butterfly is from my stash and I added black ink to the edges of the card.

I love all the layers, so far out of my comfort zone!

  1. I zoomed in to have a good nose at them all, so much loveliness in small packages! I remember those index cards from my notes for my last viva at uni. Trying to squeeze it all in on the 6 allowed cards! Somehow I passed and qualified as an Occupational Therapist. Crafting on the cards looks far more fun! Enjoy the sun, as usual the British Summer is here one minute and gone the next! x
