ICAD Leftovers: The Collages

We made it! The last batch of ICAD leftovers to see. All "cut and paste" stuff in this group. Some markers and paint make an appearance in a few too.

Many thanks to those who hung in there this summer and viewed the ICAD posts! I appreciate it. Have a great end to the summer!!

ICAD Leftovers: The Mixes

The third group of ICAD leftover cards is mixed media "stuff." Paint, markers, magazine clippings, you know, the usual suspects.

See-- I warned you there were a lot of leftovers this year! One more group to go. Have a nice day out there!

ICAD Leftovers: The Patterns

Here I am with another group of ICAD leftovers. These pattern type designs are really fun to do-- as long as you don't run out of doodle ideas. Mostly marker and paint once again. There is a couple snips of washi tape hiding in there.

Thank you for viewing!

ICAD Leftovers: The Florals

This year I really got carried away with ICAD and made more than one card a day. I only posted one card a day, however, to the Flickr ICAD group and so have a bunch to share now. Up first are flower themed. Mostly markers, there is some craft paint in the mix too.

Have a happy day!

The Last of ICAD 2016 (well, technically...)

Here we are-- the last of the ICAD cards for 2016. However, as my title hinted at, I have quite a few "leftovers" that I'll share another day, but these are the last "official" cards. Two more pattern/doodle cards made with markers.

Yep, another mixed media type. The background is a monoprint scrap, and I'm sure you know by now the rest is magazine clippings and a marker border.

This one I goofed around with since I didn't like the initial outcome, but I think I saved it. Magazine clippings, old book images, and craft paint.

Another trendy design-- craft paint, magazine clippings, tape transfer. And I have to say: what is with these models' hair styles???

Yes, more markers! You must admit this one is colorful.

And lastly, I used the first card in the pack with the company name and info printed on it. I just happened to grab it accidentally then thought: why not??

And because you haven't seen enough of these cards in the last two months, stay tuned for my "leftovers." There are a lot this year too!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy August!

ICAD 50-54

ICAD is winding down already! I find that very hard to believe, but then again, July always goes by fast. The first two cards are the ever popular mixed media; magazine clippings and paint.

And the new popular (with me) craft paint and marker doodling.

I don't think I used an old pattern image this year so here you are... A little added paint and marker.

So have you melted yet??? I think most folks near me have. Stay cool out there!

A Non-ICAD Post

I have photographed some pretty flowers lately. Just thought I'd share, and give readers an ICAD break.

Have a nice day!
