ICAD 2018 - 29-35/61

29/61 - Patisserie
I used my KOH-I-NOOR Magic Colored pencils to make the swirled tops of, let's say, cupcakes.

30/61 - Playing Card or Tarot Card
So, Go Fish is a card game, right?

Watercolor and Prismacolor pencils, Micron pen

31/61 - Curtain
With my apologies to Carol Burnett.  Her hilarious sketch based on the scene in Gone With the Wind where Scarlet O'Hara has a new dress made from the green velvet drapes.  This dress/costume was designed by Bob Mackie (complete with the drapery rod).

Prismacolor pencils, Micron pen

32/61 - Compass
Not quite a snowflake, but closer to a dandelion seed cluster, with the cardinal points.

Zig Brush Pens, gel pen, Posca paint pen

33/61 - Blue
I have something similar to this in one of my art journals.  It was fun the first time and still fun the second.  The quote is from one of the books in the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery.  There are some very good quotes in her works.  

KOI watercolors, blue ballpoint pen

34/61 - Picnic
I don't know what possessed me.  Drinking ice tea too late at night perhaps.  The picnic basket is woven from the strips of one index card and it's attached to the background of another.  

Zig Brush Markers, tape, glue

35/61 - Mosaic
Fun but not so easy.  It's much easier to smash plates into pieces.  I used an audition card for the "tiles".  Flowers that I had practiced for a previous card became flowers of another kind here.  Once they were glued down I used an Exacto knife to cut away the spaces in between.  Then I glue the whole of it to the green cardstock.


  1. That Bob Mackie creation is one that will be forever recognizable - one of many amazing designs he did. Fun to see your take on it!

  2. You found a way to sharpen those pencils? I like the Go Fish, clever having the the card on a sea background, and I love the Anne quote but my favourite has got to be that picnic basket - it is AMAZING.

  3. Scarlett looks grand! :) Very creative post, Lorraine.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
