Well sorry for all the posts on ICAD! I have been some what lazy this summer! I have misplaced my charger for my camera battery! I'm so sad, because I'm usually pretty good about taking photos. It is on my list of things to do this week! I know as soon as I order a new one I will find my other one!
I have been just scanning in my index cards when I take the time! That is something else I haven't been doing like I should! I have been at least creating EVERY DAY! I'm so proud of myself for that! It was a goal I started before ICAD started. So I think it has been about 2 months! I don't let a day go by without at least picking up my sharpie and doing a simple doodle or quote! Some days I just sit and create and forget about how much time I've spent!
I'm so glad I joined ICAD this year! I have learned so many things along the way and we aren't even done yet! One of the many things I've learned is that it's okay to have more then one style! Is it just me or have you thought this before? I don't know why I thought I needed to have just one style! I mean I like so many different things so why not when I create be able to carry it through that as well?! Does that make sense? Some days all I want to do is doodle and I have a hard time not adding my black pen to everything I touch! Then there are days when paint is all I need! Who knows maybe as I continue they will all blend together, but for now I'm happy playing with so many things and creating so many different styles!
DAY 16DAY 17
The last 4 of these cards were created with a color prompt in mind from The Summer of Color Prompst over at Twinkle Twinkle blog. That week was hot pink and orange. For some reason I just loved the combination so much I used it for a few days on everything I made! This past week was lime green and purple. I did one card with some markers, but wasn't really happy with the colors. The markers I used didn't have a real lime green! So this isn't one of my favorites at all, but I'm okay with that! It's part of the process of creating! I may still try and play with the lime green and purple again, but for now I'm waiting to see what the new color combo is!
I didn't want to bombard you with all the cards at once so I will share more this week. In the mean time you can find them all over at my flickr account!
