...or ICAD started on June 1 and I've been ICAD'ing along, too.
Last year, my first, ICAD felt impossible and I stopped after 32 days. Honestly, I was surprised I had made it that far. It didn't help that we had the best summer ever. I made lots of memories last summer but not much else. This year, the weather is more typically rainy and grey so there's that.
I'm putting all my cards on a ring again. Last year, they didn't get lost in my messy space and I liked that. It was also easy to take them all with me and share with my friends who were also doing ICAD. I liked that, too. Then, when I finished ICAD, I put them in a decorative bowl and was able to enjoy them throughout the year. So, on the ring they go!
Here are my cards so far...
Day 1: This is a leftover sample from a class I've been working on.
Day 2: I stuck down a bunch of leftover stickers on this card. Then covered the whole lot in gesso and colored with some pink and red Gelatos by Faber Castell. There's also a little Barn Door Distress Paint on the edges. The quote is from Donna Downey's Empowered Words stamp set. I've been using it a lot so I hope you like it!
And here's a closeup of that lovely dimension.
Day 3: Some Broken China Distress Paint on Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap Paper collaged onto a card. Then I made a single modeling paste cloud using Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's 6x6 Clouds stencil and added some Studio Calico wood veneer birds and a quote.
Day 4: This one is modeling paste through Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's 6x6 Pomegranate stencil on Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap Paper on a card. I'm not sure how I got the red - could be Gelatos or Distress Paint. But I am sure that there is some gold paint and some Black Soot Distress Paint on there.
And here's a closeup.
And that's it for now. I still have more cards to share and my goal is to get those up tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
