ICAD 34-40

This year I’m participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day) again, it’s my second time. There’s a weekly theme with daily prompts. I share them on my Facebook blog the day I create them and I’ll write a weekly post with more info here. You can find the theme and prompts at Daisy Yellow.

On day 34 we got new meters in our meter cupboard. I used the waiting time to make my card.

Day 34
I made a collage inspired by Cecil Touchon for day 35. I've already used this technique a few years ago, you can read about that here.
Day 35
 I used a photo of the painting Two Heads made by Karel Appel.
Two Heads by Karel Appel
My daughter got her diploma on day 36, so we had diner at a brasserie to celebrate this. I used a napkin to make a one staple collage to remember this day.
Day 36
This card was my response to the sad news about the 6 year old Dutch boy Tijn Kolsteren. I used my daughter’s nail polish.
Day 37
My first trials with charcoal for day 38. I secured it with adhesive plastic. Not sure if I will use this again!
Day 38
Doodling with markers for day 39, it was fun!
Day 39
And this morning I made a collage for day 40.
Day 40
I did some embroidery this week and hope to have time to write about it in the next few days. Life is busy these days!

  1. Wat leuk dat ook jij weer meedoet. Je hebt er weer heel mooie voor gemaakt.
    Die houtskool is een drama wat afgeven betreft. Ik heb een kopie gemaakt van mijn Viko (je ziet dat wel op m'n blog op vrijdag) en die opgeplakt boven een stukje met dunne houtskool.
    Ik geniet weer van het doen en van het werk van anderen.

    1. Ja, die houtskool zat overal, ook al had ik een groot deel van mijn werkplek afgedekt. Ik ga gauw even op je blog kijken!

  2. lots more made and all looking good the 2 heads one really caught my eye

    1. Thanks, Margaret. It was fun to alter the painting this way. You still can see it's a Karel Appel!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
