meanwhile, here are the crazy ideas that went swirling through my head last week, and landed on various index cards:
day 26: portrait
couldn't decide between a tiny composer portrait from some cool vintage sheet music my sweet friend ometa pope shared with me, or FDR on a postage stamp. so i went with both. bc in collage, the more the merrier i say!!! :)
day 26: green
these started out as colorburst "blotter" cards from when i was making some of the smooshy birds, to which i added bits of paper, random stamping, some ancient, unrelated, last-in-the-packet rub-ons and... well, if it was on my worktable at the time, it probably wound up on one of these cards, lol.
day 27: off prompt
there's never a BAD time, imo, for a distress ink rainbow mandala with pen doodles on top!
day 28: dashboard
admittedly a tangential take on the prompt, but in this context that's sort of the point. when i'm making stuff for assignments or challenges, and i start veering off in a completely different direction, i need to steer back onto course. with ICAD, i can just GO WITH IT and see what happens. which is actually incredibly cool and fun!
day 29: polka dots
or in this case: polka + dots; the latter being little discs i punched from a leftover colorburst + flower stamping experiment that i didn't love, but it was too pretty to throw away.
day 30: gyroscope
deconstructed gyroscope. or possibly "gyroscope that's been involved in a serious accident could you call for help please"??
day 31: faux wallpaper
more colorburst castoffs and leftovers. made into wallpaper swatches. kinda. let's just go with it, k?
thanks for hanging out with me!
i hope today that you will sneak in some creative time that is JUST FOR FUN!
