ICADs and journal page…

So far, I’m keeping up with my index card a day art….I’m so proud of me :D  Tammy over at Daisy Yellow is hosting this project.  Click here to see others who are participating.  If you want to start… jump right in….you can begin any time.  You don’t even have to do a card every single day if you can’t or don’t want to do that.

ICAD 11 is composed mainly of bars from those postage paid reply cards that come in magazines, etc.  I found the word “undo” lying on my work table….just waiting.

ICAD 12 is the famous Albert Einstein.  That small photo was in a book club catalog.

ICAD 13 is painted deli paper bits glued down on the card.

ICAD 14 is a face I painted on the card,  surrounded by painted paper collage.

I cut out this profile from a magazine intending to cut a stencil of her.  I decided it was much too large for that.  I went over the main lines with teal acrylic paint and a tiny brush.  I used paints and stencils to alter the original.  I finished by using Caran d’ache crayons to add some more shading.  I am disappointed with the photo…I tried twice….the colors are really more deep and vibrant.

I also took some wild flower photos on my walk this morning but I’ll save those for another time. And, I will also do my link love on Monday.   I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. E = Awesomeness squared (or… something like that)!
    Very nicely done! Thanks for including some details of that last portrait, too – amazing depth / layering… a beautiful piece (as they all are), Mary! :)
