This week was all about playing catch up. Too many irons in the fire suddenly caught up with me and I will be glad when things begin to slow a bit.
I really like my book of quotes and I actually found the quote before the painting for Day 41.
Ribbon and a piece from a flower were sewn to the IC on Day 42. Then I stamped. I had NO idea the ribbon would make the stamp nearly transparent. Live and learn. That was a good lesson for me, since I'm not much of a stamper.
Back to sewing, which is my favorite way not to use glue, I added the rick rack to the handmade mists I sprayed on the background. I cut a heart to match the heart on the image and sewed the image. I then added the heart over which I added a small flower that I attached both with by making a "french knot" on my sewing machine.
For Day 44, handmade spray mists were laid down on my IC, over which I stapled "get it done." I t looked a bit plain, so I added three tea cups I stamped directly on the card.
For this one staple collage, I used a few pieces left over from when I purged. I fussy cut the umbrella and added it to the mix.
On Thursday, Day 46, I divided my time between purging two closets and visiting people on the computer. This was all I had time to make. Other than the IC, all these pieces would have headed to the trash had I not saved them and added them to the card.
I got a bit carried away with my Day 47 entry when I painted the IC, then added the image and the two postage stamps. I hadn't let the paint completely dry, so the images stuck to the paint before I could sew them. However, I still sewed around everything after the paint was dry.
I know most of my regular readers and followers know by now, but I'll
reiterate that I'm not using prompts from Daisy Yellow this year. Since there's no way to link these ICADs, and the fact I'm strictly a blogger and not
on any other social media site, the only place you will see these ICADs is here on my blog. Instead of the prompts, I'm using
sewing, staples, stamps, and sprays (paints, mists, etc) on scraps. No
glue is allowed on these ICADs.
I can't say this enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind words and visits. They mean the world to me.
