In starting this blog, my aim is to have a place to share my scrapbooking, card making, paintings and photos with friends and rellies. Hopefully it will inspire me to produce more....LOL. Welcome! Sue xxx
Last year I took part in ICAD.....index card a day for the months of June and July. I had a total ball and didn't hesitate to sign up again this year. You can see all the details on Tammy Garcia's blog http://daisyyellowart.com/
My title card
Day1 There is a daily prompt which is optional. Day 1 was chevron.
Day 2...no prompt used
Day 3....no prompt used. I had fun drawing and doodling. I haven't drawn a lot of faces and I want to do some during ICAD and hopefully improve.
Day 4....The prompt was mailbox and I chose some junk mail from a pile I have and collaged lots of Christmas pictures from a catalogue.
Day 5....more doodling...it is so relaxing!
Day 6....another face..I am happy with this one
Day 7....I had no inspiration today until I hit on the idea of sewing and gelli prints. Happy with how it came together.
I used some old Basic Grey paper on the left hand side and painted the tree on it. I made my own text stencil and used a portion of Kipling's "If". The brown paper on the right hand side is part of a shopping bag from my Irish trip in 2012. So loving all these pages....and another video comes out tonight!!
I loved doing this one....I used similar colours to Donna but her shapes were more like trees. I could see poppies....so poppies they became and I added a poppy to the inclusion. The inclusion is my favourite part of this spread.
Last night I waited for the new video to be posted and I have worked on it during the day. It is finished and seemed easier than last week! I used violet and a light lime green as well as lots of collage and background stamps.
Early in December I signed up for Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday and have been anxiously waiting for it to start on January7. Meanwhile I made my own inspiration journal following Donna's instructions.
At last, the first video was released and I started on my page...it took me a week with waiting for gesso and modelling paste to dry.
