ICAD 2018 - 43-49/61

Hard to believe it's been 7 weeks already and a little more than a week to go.  Making time for these has suddenly become a challenge.  Some other things crept up on me including a little bit of a sideline for some dental surgery.  Still, I persist and will finish.

43/61 - Window
My rendition of part of a stained glass window.

Zig brush markers and Micron pen.

44/61 - Fringe
Using what I could find in the condo.  After a visit to AC Moore an idea struck me when I found this fabric for $1.  I knew at that point I was going to tear it to get fringe on the edges but I didn't quite know what I would use the strips for.  Looking around I found some cording and embroidery floss from a long ago project, and also some paint chips, and TA DA!

45/61 - Candyland
I kept thinking lollipops and they appeared.  Well, no they didn't just appear, but they were fun to do.  One is different than the others.  Can you tell which one?

Zig brush markers and Prismacolor pencils.

46/61 - Tie Dye
So I scribbled some brush marker on an index card, wet it with a paintbrush and then smashed that onto another index card.  I tried two different color palettes and in the end couldn't decide which one I liked best so I cut one up and added it over the other.

47/61 - Love
I pondered this for a long time.   Whilst there are many things that I love, people are what I dearly love and I wasn't going that route.  Instead took a line from our wedding song and strung it with hearts.

Stabilo and Micron pens.

48/61 - Camera
I used the inside of a security envelope for the shutter.  The background was done previously as an experiment for another prompt that I didn't use. 

Zig brush markers, Micron pen, and pencil.

49/61 - Landscape
This was inspired by a photo I took back in May of a sunset looking down the street I live on.  Both the photo and the original of this are much more vibrant in real life.  And the trees had a lot more branches, but at this point I was playing catch up. Still, I think it came out well.

Derwent Inktense pencils, Micron Marker.

If you're wondering about my 365 day project, I haven't given up on it.  Goodness knows I have enough scraps for more than 365 days.  I've fallen behind on preparing the ovals what with summer activities and get togethers.  I will catch up with that too. Promise!


  1. Beautiful colors and designs! I hope you saw the e-mail I sent you yesterday about being a winner of the GIU hop. :)

  2. Sorry about the dental surgery - that's never fun. The anesthetics don't bother me too much but they knock DH sideways. I hope you're in my camp on this one! First I thought the fringe would be my favourite - wonderful dimension. But I just love the tie-dye one and the sunset scene. I "think" one lollipop spirals in the opposite direction, but I'm too tired to think if that can be, or of it's just an illusion.


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