ICADs and a zine…

I have been busy working on another project for my “Sewn” class.(See July 5th post).  I hope to get my pattern book put together soon.  Meanwhile, here are the remaining ICADs for this week.  So far, I have made 42 cards.  Index Card a Day originated with Tammy over at Daisy Yellow.  She has lots of creative ideas going on over at her blog, this is only one of many ideas. Here are ICADs 39-42 (July 9-12):

ICAD 39 is four layers of spray inks with various stencils:


ICAD 40 is “Did Nancy Get Mail?” from an old vintage reader:


ICAD 41 started as an ad for a handbag.  I used metallic ink and paints with some Payne’s Gray for outlining the bird that appeared…I love his eye!


ICAD 42 is mostly magazine collage pieces with one piece of scrapbook paper:


I’m not going to do Link Love this week due the time factor.  I do want to share a zine that Lee over at Defining Me sent me this week.   Around two weeks ago, on her blog, she mentioned that she had made a zine.  She made a one sheet zine like the one I wrote about in my last post.  She is so talented and creative!  She drew all the pictures except the page with Mona Lisa 🙂  She asked anyone who wanted one to let her know…and I did…and I’m very happy that I did.  Thank you Lee!!! I love it!!!  Here’s the front and the back of Lee’s zine:

    Love all your ICADs but I love the Nancy mail card best. It reminds me of the old Dick and Jane readers when I was a kid.

    Lee’s zine is great! I was lucky enough to get one, too. She never ceases to amaze me with her talent.
