ICAD2016

It's that time again! June is the month where I participate in the Index Card a Day challenge, run by Tammy at Daisy Yellow. I have learned so much from participating in these challenges. If you've known me for a while, you have probably heard me say comments like "I'm really bad at visual things," "I can't draw," "Musically, I'm great with art- visually, not so much, " and the comments go on and on. Because I thought I was "bad," I just stopped creating altogether. Fortunately, I'm also a nerd who loves to learn at every opportunity. So, I have participated in this challenge for 3 years and have started to create art because I like it- and no other reason.
    Tammy gives a set of prompts at the beginning of each week. I will probably follow them because, let's face it, I'm a rule follower. :)  The prompt for 6/1 was mix tape. I wanted to just practice sketching. I struggle with symmetry so I will practice that a little this year.
Prompt #2 was pyramid. I made a little 3D pyramid with watercolors, and distress ink. T and D also jumped in and created with me. Tim's is on top "with amazing shadowing techniques, taught by my awesome art teacher, Mrs. Smith" and David's is a drawing colored with crayon.


   I will continue to share throughout June. Anyone who is popping over from my ICAD intro, feel free to share a link to your blog so people can look at your cards too. (Feel free to introduce yourself too!)

  1. I love how D and you did art together- and the finished products are so fun. I'm excited to see more of your cards. :)
