Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

ICAD 2015, Cards 5 and 6




Card 5 is a little abstract.  I drew from my journaling prompts box.  
The three cards were:
Do a monochromatic theme
Use numbers
Make lines with side of a credit card.
This is what happened.



Card 6 is inspired by my love of Chai tea.
I stapled on a tea envelope and tag.
The cup I drew and colored with watercolor pencils.
The border is a Dylusions stamp.

ICAD 2015, Cards 3 and 4

Continuing on with Cards 3 & 4


This one is stamps, watercolor pencils, white Signo pen. 
Acrylic paint wash for background.


Again, an acrylic wash background.  The map is an old, old stamp.
I shaded it with some colored pencils and distressed the edges of the card.

ICAD 2015

I was inspired by art videos to participate in 

I like the challenge because the "rules" are 
relaxed and running for only 2 months makes
it a doable option for me. 

No stress, short time-line, and lots of
fun to be had!

Love grows in little houses......

Progress photos of my recent art journal spread.

The blank page


 I added texture with paper and recycled paper towel.
Some color is added with creamy crayon (like gelato).



Gesso



The next layer is acrylic paint, applied with my fingers.



Next, some random letter stamps.



Then I started building little houses with pretty paper.



The doors are paper scraps, the windows painted with creamy crayon.



A few more details, some shading, text and border.
