Yes, you’ve guessed it! I’ve decided to re-revive my blog! Surprised?
I hadn’t expected to take such a long break from my blog. And it’s not like I had nothing to show you because I kept up with my 365 Somethings for the whole month of February. Then I had a nice little vacation in March. Which is when I stopped creating. But then June arrived and with it came the ICAD challenge (Index Card-a-Day) which was a great way to get back to art. I’ve been posting those on Instagram every day but I’ve been feeling like something was missing. So here I am.
Before I tell you about the creations above, I just want to let you all know that though I have stopped my 365 Somethings challenge, I plan to pick it back up after ICAD is over. I figure that if I make 2 things per day, even if I miss a few days, I’ll get to my goal of 365 items. And keep in mind that my personal challenge was to use my rubber stamps and clear stamps.
Now, about the images at the top of this post. They were made for Week 5 of 365 Somethings which was from January 29th to February 4th. The first card could definitely be used for Valentine’s Day and I used a die-cut sheet that I’ve had for years. Cards two and three were made on the same day and I focused more on the colouring with the stamped images. Cards four and five were done together and I simply changed the patterned paper and cardstock colour. The following day I simply coloured a stamped lady in my small art journal. Then, seeing that my art journal was already out, I made a spread the next day. And finally, I made two cards, reproducing one I had done years ago at a make-n-take (it’s the one on the left, of course.)
Thank you so much for your patience. And if you read all the way through, you rock!
