ICAD 2017 - Day 12 -- Wings

Hi again everyone!

Back to the ICADs it is!

I enjoyed creating this one. The prompt was 'wings' and I'd just recently bought a stamp set with an angel and wings by Carabelle Studio. The angel and the wings were separated, which is handy!

Again I used blues for the background (just love blue), add a dress form heat embossed with black and top it off with gold tinsel wings! Match made in Heaven!

Art Journal Page 161

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd give you a break from ICADs and toss in a journal page as well today LOL.

I streamed live on Ustream today and created a page on burlap from my Dina Wakley Multi Surface journal. For the background I decided to drip watered down paint from a distance onto the page using a dropper. I liked the effect it made so I decided to try it again in my Dylusions journal.

Once I had the background done I had to decide what to do with it next. I came back to the old faithful circles LOL.

ICAD 2017 - Day 11 - Tetrahedron

Hi everyone!

I had to google what today's prompt, tetrahedron was, and OMG! It looked hard but when I started drawing it, it came together better than I thought. But then how to colour it so that it actually looked dimensional! That's where the iridescent paints came in handy, as they are translucent so you could see the other colours beneath them.

ICAD 2017 - Day 8 - Paint Chips

Hi everyone!

Another ICAD again today. This one was just mind boggling to me! Paint chips! I originally thought I might draw some chips (like McDonald's) and paint them, but thought better of that one and decided to just chip some paint on the card.

I decided to use crackle medium on this one to help the paint chips appear, but unfortunately I think I applied the crackle medium too thick because it hardly cracked at all. I made the paint chips by pricking the paint and tearing it off the card.

You can watch the short process video on YouTube by clicking HERE.
