ICAD#027: " Nature's Beauty "


It's day 27 of my personal ICAD* challenge. 

Recently I let my grandchildren loose with my art supplies.(Yeah, I'm the COOL grandma ...they call me G-Ma.) 



They played with stamps and ink pads mostly but thought the stencils were great, too. They were working to make postcards to send out as part of a kids' swap I found online -
Summer Mail Art Swap for Kids (and Their Adults), hosted by Amy Hood. I think this is such a cool idea, I mean we swap, why not the kids too?!


My grandson, Quadir (Quaddy) made a very cool background and gave it to me. I decided to use it in today's ICAD. Plan to frame it for him to hang in his room.

ICAD#026: "The earth laughs..."

It's day 26 of my personal ICAD* challenge. Today's card was made for my new friend, Amy VanDyke. I met Amy on the Facebook group, Art Abandonment.

" Art Abandonment is a group designed to encourage random acts of art, left in various locations around the globe. The idea is that folks can make something and leave it for a lucky unsuspecting person to find. Artists can then post locations and photos of abandoned goodies…and finders can let everyone know that they are the lucky finder! O' sweet abandon! "

Coming up with design ideas and mixing it up with different techniques each day can sometimes be difficult for me. I wanted to do something I haven't done for a while. I decided to do some heat embossing this time. I even ended up with a bonus video - another Quik Clip Tip .

Here's today's ICAD -
