ICAD 18

#18
The "yearbook" prompt led to the unearthing of one of my high school yearbooks, which led to a mix of nostalgia and cringing as I leafed through it, which led me to the decision to make copies of several pages, which then led to the most delightful part: cutting up pieces of my past and re-assembling them here. Friends forever! Best of luck in the future! Have a great summer! Remember me!

ICAD 17

#17
The "wood" prompt brought to mind the color scheme, and this week's mark-making/drawing/sketching theme led to some scribbling, cutting, pasting, and stitching. Fun card to create! I love the unevenness of hand-cut circles. Perfection is boring.

ICAD 15-16

#15
Tempestuous hues and textures emerged from the "storm" prompt. 

#16
This one's an off-prompt card.  I worked with this week's drawing/sketching theme instead.  I closed my eyes, flower in one hand, a fountain pen in the other, and made a "blind" repetition drawing.

Lots of messy stitching (my favorite kind), courtesy of the "thread" prompt.

ICAD 13

#13
The "balcony" prompt brought about lots of layers, and a pretty colorful view.  

ICAD 11-12

#11
The prompt "palm"  had me reaching for a black pen and creating a rough sketch of the lines on my left palm -- lines that I repeated and then shaded using black watercolor pencil. 

#12
The "tapestry" prompt brought to mind different colors and lots of stitching (sans loom, in this case). This was created entirely from items that I might have otherwise discarded -- old calendar pages, a ripped gift bag, painting scraps, and more. It's a trash-to-treasure tapestry.

ICAD 10

Today's prompt, "Sapphire," reminds me of light on water, the morning sunlight and the sparkling sea. Time for a beach trip!
