Two of them were Peace Festival themed, which made sense as the cards represent those days.
The first one is this:
Which was created by photocopying a book cover about festivals and painting over the top of the feet with inks and paints. I also hand drew the Peace symbol. A colourful piece of washi tape for the date matched its 'hippy' theme.
The second was this:
A simple photo of some earrings that were for sale. I'm wishing that I'd bought some of these too (sigh!) ...
One of the ICAD optional themes was Swirls so these fitted it perfectly.
Getting back to Friday, my card was this:
Yet another optional theme was to doodle our name. For this doodle I used Red & Black Sharpies and some see-through graph washi tape. I do so love grids!
The last card to show you was yesterdays:
..and this is the one I used an Image Transfer technique on. Our brief for Natalie Malik's 'In the Sun' journalling course was to do an image transfer so I thought I'd use my ICAD to do a practice one first. I followed Natty's instructions and it worked well on this glossy Vogue picture. The hand coloured effect was also part of the brief and Marilyn was coloured in using a red Sharpie, a blue felt tip and a yellow Artbar.
This was it in progress:
Rub, rub, rub....and rub some more.
(I used Golden's gloss gel medium)
Note: I dried mine quicker using a heat gun and found it worked well.
Whilst waiting for the other one to dry I decided to try another image transfer technique This one kind of went wrong:
(But I like it!)
I was going to try using Cellulose thinners (outside of course) as my transfer chemical but when I put it on the magazine picture it dissolved and spread the ink. This is the result - a happy accident! Yay!
I made another transfer for my 'In the Sun' page but as I have shown you more than enough today I'll go ahead and show you that .....tomorrow!
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
