ICAD2 Update: Days 13 and 20

After I finished looking at my last ICAD2 post, I realized I was missing a card. So here is the real, Day 13. It's my last Zentangle card for a while. Not sure what my Zentangle plans are but I'm loving the break (sorry again, Zentangle).


And here's my card for Day 20.


First, I coated the card in gesso and gently pressed a sheet of paper towel into the gesso to get an impression. I love how it looks. Then I started playing with Faber Castell Gelatos and acrylic paint. I was delighted when I managed to get the Gelatos to drip and run. The note is made from words I picked out of Tim Holtz's Chitchat stickers. They are fun. I'm sure you'll see them again. Then I painted a Studio Calico wood veneer bird with Claudine Hellmuth Dash of Red Studio Paint and sat her on a line I drew with a black pen.

The really great thing about ICAD2, is that I'm discovering techniques that I will use again in my art journal.  I know I'm going to use this paper towel and gesso technique again and again. It looks so neat.

Thanks for stopping by!
