ICAD 2013

So, I have decided to take part in ICAD this year (the short version is is you make a creative mini work of art on an index card each day all summer. there are optional themes and prompts, but you can basically do whatever, as long as it is family appropriate).  This is my first couple of cards…

BTW- It’s not too late to join.  Grab a stack of cards and jump in!  Tammy stresses that catching up isn’t necessary.  All that is required is a stack of cards, and some creativity. =D

PS. ok. so it June 3rd, and i have already over taxed myself.  I am trying to keep up on this, I am about half done my ‘The Journey of Letting Go {Creating Beauty from Ashes}’ class, and I am starting the Sweet Sirens Class.  And we have 3 birthdays in our family in the next 2 weeks.  Wish me luck! (Good job I cut back on the blogging, eh?) So, sorry for the short, boring infrequent posts I am predicting for June.  But I should have lots of great stuff to share in July… 🙂

mixed media fairy house

I was inspired to see what I could do with a fairy house. I didn’t want it to blend to completely in with the tree (like it would in the wild).  I loved the way the detail came out, and wanted to preserve it…

Turtle Notes…

Today’s project was one that was fun, and I love the both the process and the product.  In fact, I am tempted to make another one soon.  DH loves turtle, and I thought he needed a notebook to carry around and jot things down in, so I put this together.  I took a greeting card, coated it in gesso and acrylic paint, to cover the picture and writing, both hand and printing.  the put a pattern on using a stencil that I thought looked like the one on a turtle shell.  I traced and coloured a turtle picture I found on google.  I sewed some computer paper in that I had cut to size.  I attached a bead and a piece of yarn to fasten it, and Voila!  A cheap, medium sized notebook…
