    ICAD 2014 Guest: Lauren

    Our guest index card artist today is Lauren with one of my favorite techniques, stapled collage! Lauren blogs at All the Good Blog Names Were Taken.... and you can learn more about this collage at her blog.

     

    materials: index card divider, vintage papers, green stamps, doily scraps, chalk ink, butterfly die, layered paper flower, staples

    thank you very much, tammy, for inviting me to be today's guest ICAD artist! for this card i knew i wanted to make a stapled collage and i thought it would probably a neatly stacked one; but lately i've been really loving torn layers, too. then it occurred to me that both of those ideas might work pretty well together. so i grabbed a little bit of everything i love, supply-wise, and this is the result!

     

    You can find Lauren's in-depth article about stapled collage in the Daisy Yellow Zine Issue #11.

    ICAD 2014: Week #6 Prompts

    100% Optional Topical Prompts for Week #6 of the 2014 Index-Card-a-Day Challenge!!!

    You might use the prompts, and you might not.... they are here just in case you need a nudge for your index card. These are simple one word or phrase prompts that can be used literally, figuratively, specifically, sarcastically, ridiculously, logically, magically or any other adverbish manner. You can use the English words or any translation thereof. Here's some insight into the prompts.

    ICAD 2014 Guest: Karen

    Our guest index card artist today is an artist whose work I have long admired; we've been bloggy friends for many years. Karen blogs at I am Rushmore and facilitates the mail art swap site Mail Me Some Art.

    Index cards are the perfect way for me to use up all those little leftover bits that are too pretty to throw away, but too small to be really useful. I made this card entirely from scraps on my desk. It includes a bit of a napkin, some washi tape recycled from an envelope, bits of transparency with handwriting, a transparency stamped with paint, some stamped tissue paper, and a bit of painted book page.
