ICADs for June 19 through 25


Here are my ICADs for June 19 through June 25.

For Day 19, I found this image in a wedding book and couldn't resist using it.  I paired the black and white image with the hodge-podge colorful background.

For Day 20, I used this image I've had since last year, when I did so many Back to School journal pages for AJJ.  I think the boy is supposed to be laughing, but often laughing and crying look similar.  So I paired his image with a sentiment I created when I was writing a poem about love and loss. 

On Day 21, I went back to my one staple collages.  I paired a paint chip with an image from a freebie magazine and words that describe the image. 

For Day 22,  I wanted to celebrate the fact that summer had arrived.  I placed a few stickers on the IC and computer generated and colored the sentiment.  Don't ask why I added the felt in the two corners, except for the fact I was tired of moving them around on my table.

On Day 23 I found some horses that were stickers.   I attached them and instead of creating a sentiment on the computer, I chose to use these teeny, tiny letters that came in an old VCR tape.  I never throw anything away!

This is Day 24, and although I started the week out good, I felt it went downhill about midweek.  This is an example of an ICAD that was not worthy of your attention.  I found the image in a book, cut three pieces of vellum using my circle punch, placed them on the image, and added computer generated text.  I realize that was a lot of words for a puny card.

For Day 25, I cut a piece of tissue box to IC size (3" X 5"), then found these darling dogs that came on a piece of junk mail.  I sewed the dogs to the background and added washi tape to finish it off.

Thank you for visiting.  I fear this week's cards were a bit hurried, and I didn't do my best work.  But I appreciate your continued support of this project and am grateful you are sticking with me through this project, especially because this is the only place you will find my ICADs.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, I enjoyed each of the days you shared, and I absolutely love day 25.

I love all of them and it is interesting to follow why you have chosen the images and used them in the way you have. It is a difficult project I imagine and you are doing it so well.

Love Chrissie xx

You've done well Elizabeth, they all look great. My favourite though is the one with the dogs.

You do this challenge so well and every single ICAD is a piece of your personality - I like the dogs so much - the sewing is your personal touch always - I am much inspired by this style-
did some sewing as well today - I hope I can link tomorrow in the morning to TSFT ere they put down the power here in my street for a couple of hours.
Happy start of the week Elizabeth!

I enjoy looking at your ICADS. I think you're being too hard on yourself. It's hard to create a perfect work each and every day. The perfection comes with the discipline to continue.

Each card is amazing and you add interesting pieces to each one on how you create them.
I was drawn to the connection on the first one , that you have with Bleubeard and I'm sure Squiggles as well. Our pets are precious to us.

These are wonderful, Elizabeth, especially Day 19, followed closely by Day 23 and Day 25.
YOU have a day as great as you are.

It's fun watching how all of these are coming together, Elizabeth. I especially love the one with the silhouette figures of the dogs!

Fun ICADS...and I actually really like the day 24 card...the circles and phrase really compliment the mod landscape! ♥

Another fun week of ICADs Elizabeth. I hate to tell you this but the one with the circle punches is one of my favourites (maybe it's because it's kind of like polka dots, which you know I love). Other standouts for me are the boy (because of the powerful words you added), and the dogs - because of the colour scheme and stitching and that you used a Kleenex box. I loved seeing that I'm not the only one who selects Kleenex for the box. Might as well - you're going to buy it anyway! And, I love one-staple collages. We've both said it - they're not as easy as they sound.
