Day 10 to 20 of the ICAD challenge.

I have been doing the Daisy Yellow Index card challenge. This is my third year and I really enjoy the challenge of doing a small index card art every day for the months of June and July. I am up to day 39 but here are number 10 to 20 of my Index cards to show on my blog. If you would like to follow me on Instagram at @sandybeachart I have been putting them up on there daily.  

#11 Baseball 
I drew a baseball and bats and then decided to make it a man. So I dug through some collage to find black and white images. I smeared 2 different shades of blue for the background with a baby wipe.  

#12 Television

#13 Off prompt 
Sometimes I just like to draw and over the next week I did that a lot.

A Girl and her Cat...

Today for the Helmar Creative Team and I go into more details over there.  I re-created an art journal page that I had recently done and I really liked the colour and design of and thought it would be nice to have it on my wall in my art room.

I have not changed this much, but I did not just want to have a copy from my printer on my wall. I liked the way the girl looked with her dress. I had no problem with painting the cat or the flowers again as I have been doing those a lot. I just liked the shape of the girl and the way the dress looked. So thought I would copy her on my printer from my art journal and pop her on the painted background. So I painted the whole background of the spread again on a canvas with the cat. I just used the same DecoArt paints and blended the colours the same way.

I made a copy of my art journal page and with the Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste I spread it on the back of the fussy cut girl and on the painted canvas.

 Using the paint and glue spreader I smoothed out all the bubbles.

I am happy that I can now hang this on my wall and see it and it's not only in my art journal. Now I am looking at what else I have in my art journals that I might like to copy and pop on my wall.

Linking this up with Paint Party Friday and off to see what you have all been up to this week.

Have a great day
