Index Card a Day- The Weekly Round Up!
I can't belive we are getting so Close to the end!!! Waaaaaa!! I let Tammy Garcia know I wasn't quite sure how I was going to make it without ICAD and she assured me this was just the 'First Step' to even more Yummy Daisy Yellow Goodness:)
So this one is Sage and Sepia for "Summer of Color's" Challenge. I found these Crazy Cool Seed Pods while out on a "Sniffy" walk with the doggies. Love them! I used Gesso, Acrylic and a Pitt Pen for a quick sketch.
This last week I worked really Hard at learning the In's and Out's of Twitter- so I felt like this little guy was Warranted. I love his little round belly! This one is Watercolor.
This is my first 'Foray' into the Mystical World of White Pen-ness...This is a Gelly Roll which is one of the only things I can seem to find around here. It's on Black Acrylic with a White Acrylic Stamp. I had to go slowly with it and that is good for me:)
The Ladies of ICAD are Incredible Artitst and lots of them do these Breath Taking 'Doodles'..I tell you... they are seriously Zen man! This one is one of my attempts. I was using their cards for Inspiration. I just don't know how they come up with all those designs!
This one was directly inspired by one of the gals. I was feeling so 'Out of Juice' that day and all I could do was grab a pen. It did help...it always does:)
And Then!....Everything changed....
After 2 weeks of waiting my Gelli Plate arrived and suddenly- all I could do was Gelli!
Don't ask me why I tried lettering...Dyslexics of the Art world should seriously reconsider. It took like 20 cards to figure out how to get it right:) But it was crazy fun!
I was so busy Gelli-ing that I had to take a break for this one- It was my Special Horde of 'Gathered material' from when I was Marathon Training in California. All Collaged and Doodled...and there's that white Pen again:) This caption meant a lot to me...it kind of said it all!
And Finally- this was inspired by some Awesome Graffiti going on on ICAD. It was also a 'shout out' to my roots. Believe it or not I grew up in a Gang infested school with Drive by Shootings and 14 foot Chain Link gates with Armed Proctor Guards. I LOVE graffiti....good Graffiti that is:) This was a little bit of where I come from..."Torn, but Beautiful":)
Are you Rounding up your ICADs? I would love to do a link up and spread the Love!
Leave me a note and I'll get right back to you!
Love to All!
