ICAD 2015 - Cover


And... It's that time again!!! ICAD 2015... I am beyond excited for this year's ICAD (Index Card a day). This project is very special to me because I started my art adventure last year and the fist art thing I ever made was 3x5 index card for ICAD... A year later, here I am so much more confident in my art and I couldn't be happier!

Here is the link for you to find out everything about ICAD:

Art on!

Journal 52 - Mysterious Flight Art journal Page




This week's topic for Journal 52 was WINGS. I was inspired by some of Tim Holtz art projects on Pinterest. I mainly used is products for the spread.  When I read that the topic was wings, I knew right away that I was going to use the wings stamp from Tim Holtz Mini Ornate Stamp set and the umbrella man form the Mini Muse Stamp set, the rest of the page just came to be as I was playing with my other products.



I used a 4x6 Index Card for the base for my focus image and had a lot of fun with my Distress Stains, washi tape, stamps and rub-ons. Here is a close up!


Here is a close up fro the mini butterflies! It was fun to make them but hard work too... They are so small! First, I punched a bunch of mini butterflies from a 6x6 Prima paper pad, then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Stains, after that I stamped them... And finally they were ready to take flight!

I really enjoyed myself making this spread! I hope you guys liked it!

Art on!!!

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Bloom Art Journal Page

I am very excited about this page, because this is my entry for May on The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. As this is my first time participating in any challenge, I decided to go with things I am comfortable using.


                       


The theme for this month's challenge is May Flowers. For my focal images I used Donna Downey's "Wild and Free" Stamp set and colored them with my new Copic Markers... The little quote is also part of the stamp set. For the background, I used patterned cardstock and Gelatos. I also used my large Dylusions journal for this one...
