ICAD # 43-49

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:

icad 43-49 for blog2 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…

  1. Wow!! Another gorgeous week of ICADs. I love the one in the top left corner, and your “crazy lady” collage is great. (And so different from your usual style!) Love the purple sun, too. So simple, and such a beautiful colour combination.
    Only 12 more ICADs to go!
