Index Card a Day Week 3

If you thought doodles and watercolor were fun; check out collage!

ICAD #15 2015 Route 66 15/61 Route 66, our prompt, is an iconic American highway. It was the first of it’s kind with an amazingly rich history!

ICAD #16 2015 Greeting  Card 16/61 Greeting Card. I actually had some greeting cards cut up in my box of collage images. So nice to actually use them!

ICAD #17 2015 Wabi Sabi 17/61 Wabi Sabi. I had to look this up and discovered it’s literally the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete, a beauty of things modest and humble.

ICAD #18 2015 Treehouse 18/61 Tree House. If I had a tree house; it would be in this tree!

ICAD #19 2015 Snowglobe 18/61 Snow Globe. Diamond snowflakes, penguins, water, and adventure; all you need in a snow globe.

ICAD #20 2015 Color Wheel 19/61 Color Wheel. That background image is a car made of colored lights, thus it had to be included.

ICAD #21 2015 70s 20/61 70’s. Well I was born in the 70’s so I added the bit about age. 70’s had groove and disco balls; what more could a girl ask for?!

I hope y’all are enjoying the challenge as much as I am. It’s keeping me from being in my head too much during this flooding down in Texas. Thanks for staying with me!



Index Card a Day Week 2

Week 2’s theme was paints. I only have watercolor pencils and the paint I use for miniatures. I went with the pencils.

ICAD #8 2015 Grapefruit and Cherry Day 8: Grapefruit & Cherry are some of the yummiest fruits! I tried to create the floating in water effect that you see on commercials. Not too bad if I say so myself!

ICAD #9 2015 Lemon and Carrot Day 9: Lemon & Carrot also delicious. I stayed w/ a drawing of the actual produce. Honestly, it didn’t even occur to me to try something else until the next day….

ICAD #10 2015 Eggplant and Ginger Day 10: Eggplant & Ginger. I love these, and while an eggplant is easy to draw; the ginger kept coming out to lumpy and “fabricated” feeling. So I went abstract!

ICAD #11 2015 Mango and Lime Day 11: Mango & Lime. I hear lime and I think “Margaritas”! So I drew a tasty mango margarita and wished for the stuff to make one!

ICAD #12 2015 Kiwi and Parsnip Day 12: Kiwi & Parsnip. I start really playing around with the prompts and made a kiwi bird with my parsnips!

ICAD #13 Blueberry and Plum Day 13: Blueberry & Plum. I went online to get color ideas and to see if blueberry bunches were like grapes…. I discovered the most beautiful pie I think I have EVER seen! So I had to recreate it!

ICAD #14 Salt and Pepper Day 14: Salt & Pepper. There were a million and one ideas I could have done here. So many shakers, yin/yang, opposites….. I found a great image that sparked this!

I really hope y’all are enjoying the challenge. Try it out for yourselves!

Index Card a Day Week 1

I can’t even begin to describe how much fun I am having participating in this Index Card a Day Challenge!

Here are the cards I did for Week 1. The prompts were Drawing and Doodling (week) and Chevron, Carnival, Draw a Map, Mailbox, Owl, Taxi, & Periodic Table (daily).

Enjoy mine, start your own, and be sure to look up the #icad2015 to cheer us on!

ICAD #1 2015 Chevron I was unsure of my “art” or creativity skills so I stuck w/ a zentangle for Chevron.

ICAD #2 2015 Carnival I was delighted to find that other participants in the challenge also went with Carnival as a Brazilian or Mardi Gras sort of thing. I was worried there would be a lot of clowns, but there were Ferris wheels, elephants and a minimum of actual clowns!

ICAD #3 2015 Draw a Map There were so many great map drawings!

ICAD #4 2015 Mailbox The prompt “Mailbox” really created some great cards! Mailboxes, envelopes, stamps, bows all sorts of stuff!

ICAD #5 2015 Owl I went back to zentangle for “owl” because I love the tangle on the wings called PURK.

ICAD #6 2015 Taxi I had some help w/ taxi ideas. My SO suggested the meter!

ICAD #7 2015 Periodic Table I literally felt overwhelmed by the periodic table…. so I literally googled a quiz to find out what element I was! I am delighted to be NEON!

I do hope you enjoy these; please share and join; just get some creativity down on paper!

Index Card a Day

ICAD Badge

So, dearest readers, I am participating in the Index Card a Day Challenge! Check it out and get on board!

Daisy Yellow is my new favorite place. I found it on a google search for art journaling. I already collage and was looking for a way to incorporate that into my journals.

I will be blogging about the challenge, but don’t want to get in your inbox everyday. I’m posting daily cards on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, ello, DeviantArt, and Facebook (pick your poison). I will do a weekly line up here! Please join in the fun and creativity!

Happy Arting!

ICAD #1 2015 Chevron #icad2015

This daily prompt was “chevron” w/ a weekly prompt of “drawings and doodles”.
