    “Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.”
    John Keats

    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!

    ICAD 2014 Guest: Hanna

    Today's guest index card artist is Hanna, whose work is playful, happy and full of creativity and color. Hanna created a little video for us!!! And so here we go....

    In the video, you can see how I pick out papers, and without a plan glue them down on the blank canvas of an index card! I go with green and pink, use some washi tape, some tissue paper and a lot of tiny pieces of left over collage material. I really like how the lines of these ordinary index cards peeks through. I think it gives this the perfect "everyday practice look", the mundane transformed, daily life documented on a card... 

    Learn more at Hanna's blog.

    I love collage, what do you love?

    3x5" index card, stitched

    One of the ideas behind the index-card-a-day challenge is to try new things, even if you aren't sure how they'll turn out! So this is one of those experiments. Ingredients include leaves cut from a canvas painting I did a few years ago and lots of text!
