I am sharing some cards that were made recently on a crafting weekend. I took part this summer in the ICAD challenge and decided to incorporate that art work on to a card base. As you can see, it gives them a totally different appearance going from a 3 x 5 index card to a 5 inch x 6.5 inch card.
I adore the vintage photo booth pictures. There are a few I have of my own relatives and myself as well. These two ladies are one of my favorites so ICAD 55/61 “Gertie and Mildred” was born.
The background was done on a masterboard that had been cut into index card sizes. I added gesso and paints (cream craft paint.) Stamping pieces, washi tape, ephemera were also added. This challenge will be coming to an end in the next few days over on Instagram. I hope you can stop by and see all the beautiful creations by using #ICAD2021.
Sharing another ICAD tonight for the challenge. This was made on a master board that was cut into index card sizes. I added paint, collage pieces, and song book text.
Today my ICAD2021 features my Uncle Jack (left) and my Dad Stewart (right) taken in their backyard in Detroit, Michigan. When I first started creating collage art in 2006, finding old photos on the internet let alone a shop that sold digital images was pretty slim pickens. Most of my art in the beginning was made from old family photo scans. I still love creating with them!
