    ICAD 2014: Week #5 Prompts

    100% Optional Topical Prompts for Week #5 of the 2014 Index-Card-a-Day Challenge!!!

    Please note that #33 is Tomorrowland - should have been capitalized - indicating the portion of Disneyworld/Disneyland that is about the futuristic world, now quite retro!

    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: Betty

    Our guest index card artist today is Betty of Mystic Tulip Mixed Media.


    The background was created by first putting down gesso. Then I added several acrylic colors using a plastic card. The stamp is a Dina Wakley stamp and all the other elements were from my stash. I used a black China pencil to smudge around some of the items and a pitt pen to doodle.

    a bit about my practice

    Most of my days begin with art and planning. The process of adding collage elements and paint to my planner-journal is clarifying and serves to mentally ease me into my dailies. My practice is to simply begin with whatever paper and.or journals located on top of my piles; red and black are favorite colors and usually handy. This card was one of several elements on my kitchen counter while I created various prints of patterns using my hand to press into a layer of paint spread thin with a gift card; a magazine cover was my palette.

    My cards for this summer are repurposed — which will add to their meaning and the fun of remembering while I create. This card came with the word, needy. After I added paint by pressing the card into the paint prints, I added a series of lines and drips on ink, and a solid black circle to represent the New Moon; a significant element since "being" and "needy" seem to be characteristic for me during said moon phase. At first thought, needy felt derogatory and even a bit melodramatic but then it felt more like an affirmation for self-care. Thus, the words "needed" and "in being" added to remind me.

    This is my 2nd time participating in ICAD & I love how working on such a small, everyday card has opened me up creatively! One of my favorite things to do is to choose a color, open up a magazine & look for small, interesting pieces of pages in that color, tear them out & glue them down. Sometimes I also include some of my own painted papers as I did in this card. Working with one color helps to create a certain mood or feeling. This one reminded me of a lazy, shady, hot summer day. There is definitely a certain magic in Tammy's ICAD challenge!
