ICAD 2014 Guest: Sue

Today's guest index card artist is Sue of Sue's Craft Cupboard. Sue is an enthusiastic contributor to the Daisy Yellow Facebook Group and actively involved in the index-card-a-day challenge. Sue was kind enough to help moderate the group while I was away on vacation.

 

Materials used: 3 x 5 index card, acrylic paint - aqua and Payne's Grey, Recycled "found" newspaper text, Reused "found" stamps or mark makers.

I am well known among friends and family for pontificating about Reuse, Reduce, Recycle so this is what's behind much of my art. I love experimenting with shapes and forms found among my recycling, using these in my arty pursuits, learning about new techniques and just seeing where experimenting takes me and what serendipity happens.

I was inspired by a quote seen in a Home and Garden magazine - "White clarifies space and accentuates form." So this card (and a series which you can see on my blog) was created by smearing some left over paint on the card and stamping with a bottle top and the bottom of a biscuit packing tray and celebrating the white space.

I have become calmer and more peaceful in my everyday life, feel constantly inspired, am more experimental, feel like an artist because I create art (even if it's just for me) and I just love the ICAD and Daisy Yellow community that Tammy has created. You've all helped me to grow in so many ways!

ICAD 2014 #54: Sideways

3x5" index card, ink

As we approach the official "end" date of the 2014 Index-Card-a-Day challenge {which is bittersweet, I know ♥︎}, I congratulate you for your doodles, painterly marks, words, collages and sketches.

For interpreting the "100% optional" prompts.

From prisms ➸ Harry Potter ➸ elephants ➸ knots.

For lugging out old, dusty watercolor paint sets & brushes.

For investigating {and investing in new-- } art materials.

For making space for your art.

Which is really making SPACE for YOURSELF.

You all rock the world.

ICAD 2014 Guest: Gabriele

Our guest today is Gabriele of the blog Art-a-Tag. Gabriele creates the most marvelous layered collages with intriguing color palettes.

 

I like to create these little ICAD collages and I like to create with my Gelli Plate. So this card is a combination of both. The blue print is made on thicker drawing paper, the brown print on deli paper. The wings are stamped on printed deli paper, the lady on newspaper. The words say: Goetz: My novel is really quite hilarious (it was funny that the word "hilarious" was used in a German text). Tammy, thank you so much for having me as a guest artist, you honor me!
