Live In A Dream World ICAD

Standard

Hey there Peeps! So let me tell you I have been bitten by the ICAD bug. I’m creating a mixed media inspired index card every day to enjoy some fun crafty time and to expand my skills working with mixed media supplies.  This card was inspired by the gorgeous Dreamcatcher  with feathers and a thoughtful quote….Live in a Dream World.

So this index card is a standard 3 x 5 inches.  I gave it a generous coat of Mod Podge then applied a text printed background tissue paper. Next a layer of Gesso to knock back the pattern. Gelato’s create the bright colors and very blended background.
The Dreamcatcher chippie is creating a nice balance on the corners.
I chose the sentiment to tie into the chippie….the dream world in the Dreamcatcher. Keeping the feathers white brightens up the arrangement.
I selected the chippies and gave them a basecoat of flat white acrylic paint. Next I added Gelato’s with the center remaining white and the colors getting darker as it goes out. Using a small text stamp I detailed the lighter sections with a random pressing of the stamp.
I clipped the hoop into two sections adding one to the top and one to the bottom. Tombo Multi was a great adhesive to attach the thinner sections.
After attaching the feathers I decided to top them off with a few little flowers that were finished with more Gelato’s and a water brush. Adding a tiny brad to the center is last but not least.
I’ll be adding this card to my collection of ICAD and maybe even do a little journaling to the backs.

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Love Never Looses Faith ICAD Box with Tabbed Dividers

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well if you’re following me on Instagram you will know that I have been having a good ol time creating card for my ICAD or Index Card A Day. I’m practicing with my mixed media supplies and creating art that’s just for fun.   I decided I needed a place to keep all my little artworks so I created the box with an upcycled recipe box and the new Faith Collection from BoBunny.

Layers of the patterned papers with Layered Chipboard Stickers, die cuts, stamping, and pearly accents.

The box is finished on the inside as well. I switched to the 6 x 6 paper pad to utilize the smaller patterns.

Tabbed dividers will be a great way to flip through the cards and keep them organized.

The fronts of the cards inside have the collage work and the backs are for journaling. It will  be nice to have a smaller amount of room to fill up with thoughts as sometimes you want to write something inspirational and personal. Sometimes you want to say I love tacos and thank God for cats. Less pressure means more spontaneous journaling.
