Another post for Effy's Blog Along
I have seen lots of mention of ICAD...
Serendipitously, when I went to Office Works, I picked up these. I always look in the bargain boxes. When I saw these, I thought I can use them. But at the till, the person there couldn't find them on the machine - so she couldn't sell them to me - so she gave them to me...
You may remember I used them for my poems a couple of weeks ago...
Anyway I was still not sure what to do - but I thought I could make a piece of artwork on a small card 5 by 3 inches - and at least try for every day in June and July.
June 1st - A Gelli plate background using white gesso and alcohol ink producing muted colours. Then two circles cut from a Gelli pull using acrylics and a stencil (Tracy Scott). The sentiment is a Tim Holtz chipboard.
June 2nd - A Gelli plate background using acrylics. I just looked to see if an image revealed itself and did a bit of doodling.
June 3rd - This was just a clean off pull after using a Tim Holtz stencil on the Gelli plate. Then doodling with paint pens.
June 4th - We went for a walk and we saw this painting on a fence:
I am very fond of pelicans - we see a lot out the back here.
The word is stamped using kids' foam letter stamps. I also made an ATC on a Gelli pull background.
June 5th - Another Gelli pull - just paint through a stencil and doodling. Another Tim Holtz chipboard.
June 6th - Acrylic paint daub. the word is a sticker.
The watercolour flowers are some I had left on my desk after Wanderlust 23 pages with Kate Crane.
Think I also got a smear or two of blue. create is a Tim Holtz die - I used black card and a Gelli Pull to cut the mat and word.
I also added a bit of faux stitching around the edges.
(This one tends to curl up...)
June 8th - This is just a little sketch with HB pencil after watching Ida Anderson Lang tutorials.
June 9th - I spotted a freebie digi from Twistoon Gnome Sun, printed it several times on a Gelli pull (a muted colours one using white Gesso and alcohol inks) and added colour with markers. I then added some penwork with a Micron pen and the word is a Stampin' Up stamp.
I also made a card and an ATC with this image:
