ICAD

This year I’m participating in ICAD (Index Card A Day) for the 4th time. There’s a weekly theme with daily prompts, which you can find at Daisy Yellow. I share my cards on my Facebook blog and Instagram on the day I create them and I’ll write a weekly post with more info on this blog.

The prompt for day 11 was palm. I made a simple collage with a photo of palm leaves.

The prompt for day 12 was tapestry. I didn’t know what to do, so I tried to find an image in a magazine that could inspire me. This nice vase with flowers did the trick.
I shopped it up and rearranged the pieces into a nice collage, inspired by Cecil Touchon. I've already used this technique a few years ago, you can read about that here.
The prompt for day 13 was balcony. I found 2 clippings of houses with balconies and thought I could use them both. My collage grew from there. I like it!
The prompt for day 14 was thread, so I stitched some pieces of old painted book pages to an index card.
Prompt 15 was the start of a new week with a different theme (mark-making, sketching, drawing & portraiture). So out came the coloured pencils and fineliners and I made this drawing inspired by a Pinterest picture.
Prompt 16 was chandelier, not something I wanted to draw. I found a clipping of a room with a chandelier, so I thought to use part of it and draw the table and the chair.
But planning is not always working, I ended up doodling instead!
And todays prompt was wood. I made a doodle girl and put her on a wooden chair.
I try to combine the daily prompts with (part of) the weekly theme. For me that’s the fun part of this challenge!
