365 day art challenge: Week 23 and ICAD week 2

Here are my collages for Week 23.  This 365 something project was created in part and hosted by Hanna at i Hanna

Additionally, for the next two months, I will be sharing my Index Cards or ICADs that are hosted by Tammy at Daisy Yellow.  The collage cards will always come first and the ICADs will be second.

In case you missed them, here are Week 22's cards.  As I'm sure you know by now, I post every Monday morning for the previous week.  All my collages are 4" X 4" (10,16 cm X 10,16 cm).  My index cards are 3" X 5" (76,2 mm x 127 mm).

This was one of those weeks when I really didn't want to make collages.  Instead I focused on watercolor crayons.

Choosing sides

Odd man out


Confused chevron


Ombré scales

Meet me at the 4 corners

And now for Week 2's ICADs.  In case you missed the notification, I will include a heart in each of the 61 ICADs I create in 2018.

Thank you so much for spending time with me today.  If you are playing in Hanna's 365 Something project, or Tammy's ICAD project, please let me know and I will be by to see what you are making.  Please let me know if you like any of these.  As always, I am extremely grateful for your continued support of both projects.

All the art looks great. You might have been busy with watercolor crayons but they do make great color collages. And as I said last week, I do like the hearts. You made many great pieces for your 2 challenges. Oh man, yes. How can it be Monday already? We had gorgeous weather this weekend before the heat comes back tomorrow. Hope you had a great weekend too. Hugs-Erika

I love the water colour crayon collages! The first one has such brilliant vibrant colours but I love the confused chevrons too! As for the ICADs day 5 is my favourite! We are home again and I am due for catch up later! Hugs,Chrisx

You are really using those watercolour crayons to great effect. I love all of these. My favourite title is Confused Chevron - that gave me a good smile. Design-wise I think Choosing Sides and Odd Man Out are my favourites, but I really think they’re all great. Your ICADs are terrific too - I especially liked Day 6 and Day 9. Day 6 because of the stitching and the overall design. Day 9 because of the design, the orange(!) and the fact I had to look twice to find the subtle little heart. Bravo my friend - a great week.

You create so many fabulous pieces each week for both of your challenges! The watercolor collages are fantastic ! I love them all and how clever the ♥Heart♥ ICADs are made!
You rock Elizabeth!
Thanks for the link to Sami.This is a stunning mural.
I visited Budapest two times already , but I can't remember this mural - it is more than 20 years ago - I have learned that she was much more popular there as in Vienna !
They tell that she had a love affair with a hungarian count--
And she loved Hungary and was there so often more than she stayed in Vienna with her wicked mother in law.
Happy new week dear friend!
Hugs, Susi

So much inspiration as usual, Elizabeth! You always make me want to reach out and touch your creations, I'm hard pushed to choose a favourite, but 'odd man out' made me laugh out loud.... but then 'meet me at the 4 corners' made me think.... at any rate, thank you for sharing :)

I'm at a loss for a favorite of your first week's watercolor crayon offerings. I love them all. Usually one stands out to me, but from "Choosing sides" on, I'd frame them all :)

I hesitate to even look at week 2 lol

You offer such a variety!

Sometimes I have a distinct favorite but I couldn't pick one today if I tried. All those fabulous colors call to me and then something representational like the lovely heart. Very fun, beautiful work.

Have a lovely day!
