ICAD merges with 365 project

This will do it - this will get me back in the saddle - this will get my creative juices flowing again! It's June, so it must be time for ICAD (index card a day).  Sponsored/hosted by Tammy at Daisy Yellow  This is my 4th year participating and I love it because it's so easy, so low stress, such a great way to keep a toe (or painty finger) in art but without a big time commitment since it is summer after all.

The idea is to make something, anything, on an index card.  I happen to prefer the 4x6 size but many use the standard 3x5. I like the bigger size and some of them eventually become mail art. I buy them by the stack at the dollar store and have found that I use them all year long to experiment and play on, not just at ICAD time.  As Tammy says, " Don't worry about catching up.  The important thing is to start."

Mine are doing double duty as my 365 project creative pieces AND ICAD pieces - here I go:

ICAD 1, 2

ICAD 3,4 - working on a little pear theme.... (inktense pencils)

ICAD 5 - still feeling the pear.....this one with oil pastels.

ICAD #6  - yep, pear collaged!  (it looks more like a pear in person :))

This covers 365 #115-120. Still a month behind, but I'm working on it.

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. You'll get there. I've signed up for Jane's self-help 'Dynamic Composition'. Can do it at my own pace...after I get this particularly busy week behind me. Also doing Carla Sonheim's 'Cats'...fun and quirky. Guess I'm addicted to art...who'd've thought?

  2. Oh the pears are wonderful, and why not merge, great idea. xox


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
