I pronounce my second participation in ICAD (third year Tammy has hosted) a rousing success! I completed all 61 cards and on time. I tried new techniques, finally got my sewing machine out of mothballs to try the stitched collage look I've seen everywhere, played with monochromatic looks, vivid looks, vacation limitations and more.
Here at the end, I can say I've learned a little more about my style, my color preferences, and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole ICAD community - fearlessly and creative led by Tammy at Daisy Yellow. So, here goes.....my last week or so of cards.
I also doubled up on most of these and made collages so I could use them for my 365 collage challenge. Now moving forward, my daily collages will be for me.....
#55 - magazine and flyer images and a little scrap of orange scrapbook paper
#56 AND 365collage #205 - Bunches More - gifted papers from Don, magazine pages, found text
#57 AND 365collage #206 - The City - gifted black mulberry paper & city image, scrapbook paper, handmade & hand stamped papers
#58 AND 365collage #207 - Clean it Up! - stamped space needle, gifted purple paper, gum box, washi
Now we have to wait a whole year til it's time for ICAD.4 - I'll be eagerly awaiting next June! Thanks again Tammy for all your hard work and thanks to all the participants who shared their work.....you're an inspiration.
