ICADs for June 26 through July 2


For Day 26, at first, Bleubeard wanted to call this his maze, then he decided it was his color wheel.   Don't make fun.  He's the one who named it!

For Day 27, I spread some paint using a faux credit card, then found words in two different magazines. To that I added the bird and called it finished.

For Day 28 I found an image in a book I liked, cut it out, then added computer generated text and washi tape.

I wanted something musical for Day 29, so started with some vintage sheet music I colored and tore, then stuck to the IC.  Next, I cut out the clefs and found the words in a book.

On Day 30, I began by painting the two complimentary colors yellow and purple.   I allowed the purple to dry first, then added the yellow so I didn't end up with brown.  Originally I planned to staple the two top pieces together, then decided it had been awhile since I sewed, so did that instead.

For Day 31, I began by spritzing two homemade shimmering mists on my IC (cut from a used file folder).  I ended up with such a mess, I couldn't figure out what to do.  I didn't have time to make another one and allow drying time, too.  That's when I came up with the sentiment.  It seems to fit, at least.

For Day 32, I took the easy way out.  I found an image of Paul Revere in a travel magazine, paired it with a paint chip, and stapled the two together.

Thanks for joining me this week as I share my ICaDs.  As I've mentioned before, there are lots of social media sites you can share your index cards with Tammy and Daisy Yellow.  Unfortunately, none of them include a blog link, the only place you'll find my ICADs and me.

Love your ICADs. Bleubeards's color wheel made me smile. Mistakes to happy accidents is a great sentiment for an artist. I've been by that statue of Paul Revere many times. It's near his house and is also the gateway to Boston's North End, once the (wealthy) Italian section of Boston. The neighborhood is more diverse now, but still, retains its Italian flavor with bakeries, restaurants, and Saint day festivals.

Always such good ideas. I like the scene you picked out too. Happy Monday.

Great job with your ICAD's. Keep on keeping on.

Love the ICADS. My favorite is the side trip. It says so much without over stating. I don't think I can do that. I'm rather a talker I guess. (Kids at school would certainly agree!) Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

I'm enjoying seeing your weekly ICADs Elizabeth. My favourite is Bleubeard's colour sheet. I thought it might be his ball of yarn, but I guess he's probably too busy with art to play with string this days. Always love to see your stitching on your cards. I love the picture of the village / city you found and would like to be able to draw like that. The Paul Revere card is nice - I like that bold red paint chip (of course).

All the cards are unique Elizabeth. Don't know how you come up with all the ideas.

As always, these are all great. ' I don't make mistakes just happy accidents.' Heh heh.
And I would have never thought about a credit card included in an art piece.

Oh wow I love your ICAD inspiration here! Thanks for sharing! I happened to find you through the Art Journal Journey challenge and saw this post too! I'm playing along for my first time with ICAD and I have barely started, but I am determined to do them! :)

Love your ICADs - especially the 28th and 30th. I don't know how you find new inspiration every day! But I'm working on it and getting lots of ideas from you ;-)

These are wonderful and creative. It really has me thinking I should have joined in so I need to remember this somewhere to plan for next year;) Love Bleubeard's card!

I seriously love your Icads.
I would never dream of making fun of Bleubeard, in fact I think his version of the colour wheel is miles better than the mega-boring "normal" one.
Not counting Bleubeard's card I seriously love the second and third, first of all because they look good, secondly because of the way you describe making them and third because they look minimalist and very effective. Lastly because they are a great inspiration to me.

Wonderful cards they all have so many ideas, but I really did have to smile at the great sentiment about the happy accidents.
