Index Card a Day 2017 – Day #5 “Chronicles”

Index Card a Day 2017 – Day #5 “Chronicles”

Hello dear friends,

I’m back with the Index Card a Day challenge Day #5 “Chronicles”.

***

For the ones of you who didn’t read my previous blog post, Index Card a Day is a challenge that starts every year on the 1st of June, hosted by Tammy Garcia on her website. Basically, Index Card a Day is a daily creative exercise in which you create a piece of art on an index card (3 x 5 inches) for 61 days ( that is if you can stick to it LOL). You can use any medium you like and feel comfortable with, the card can be as simple or as complex as you wish, you can follow the prompts or not, so, as you can see, you have lots of creative freedom. What matters is you have lots of fun playing every day, practicing and exploring techniques and supplies. You can see the Index Card a Day prompts and read all the details here https://daisyyellowart.com/icad-base/.

Today’s ICAD is all about visual texture and layering. If you hold this card in your hand, you’d realize it’s totally flat, no raised texture whatsoever.

All the texture and depth on this card was achieved by collage and building layers of paint and background stamping.

This card reminds me of old buildings and walls with the paint peeling off and rust and patina… If you are observant enough, you can find so much beauty in decay…

I am very pleased with how this card turned out and I hope you’ll get inspired by watching my video tutorial. Enjoy and have fun! 🙂

Supplies I used:

*Note* The celadon green I used in the video is a homemade paint I created by mixing different Impasto paints (white mixed with tiny amounts of black, yellow, orange and green).

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a great evening my friends and don’t forget to check out my Online Workshops. 🙂 I’d be delighted to see you in the classroom! 

Much love,
