Down the homestretch for ICADs….I ignored a lot of the prompts this week…but I am still using fabric/thread for something on each card…
Here are the 7 ICADs from last week:
2 ICADs were playing with pleating of fabric. The bright red/blue ICAD is a cut-out from a “quilt” in progress from a previous online class and the purple/yellow one is a simple collage for the prompt “purple”. The soft coloured pink/green/lace/text collage was all from fabric/paper picked up at ArtsJunktion.
The crazy lady with a tree for an arm and a flowerpot hat was a collage made using the techniques taught by Lynn Whipple in a class that Carla Sonheim offered these past 2 weeks. I will post more about this class soon since this was really really great class.
The pink and orange in the bottom left was for the prompt “knot”…it started off as a stamp made from knots and threads from my shibori work…I used the stamp with modeling paste, then layered transparent paints and finished off with some stitching.
There was also a challenge ICAD this week…started by a few of the participants. The challenge was “purple sun”. So of course I had to do this too!! I used 2 previously painted and rejected gelli prints and added some stitching. This one took me less than 5 minutes, and it is one of my favorites so far!! I am glad I have kept all my reject gelli-prints since they are very useful when small amounts of colour are needed…
