Art Journaling in September (last of ICAD)

Each month, I've made a point to share here the art journaling/mixed media that I've broadcast on other media. As of late, that's been almost entirely my process videos for Daisy Yellow's ICAD (Index-Card-A-Day) 2019. Though we're already into October, I just hit publish on the last of the ICAD videos and thought it would be the perfect time to just wrap it all up here as well. 

Most of the videos include my process for three of the ICADs, so I'll share them that way here as well. In addition, I'm including their prompts for the day. First up are Cards 37-39
Card 37: Botanical

Card 38 Clue

Card 39: Color Chart

Cards 40-42 were some of my favorites. 
Card 40: Blueprint

Card 41: Card Catalog

Card 42: Keychain or Charm

Cards 43-45 included both my least favorite of ALL of them and one of my favorites. Can you guess which is which?
Card 43: Direction

Card 44: Pool

Card 45: Wabi Sabi

In creating Cards 46-48, I experimented with new techniques and textures.
Card 46: Amethyst

Card 47: Turnpike

Card 48: Topographic

Cards 49-51 aren't favorites but allowed me to explore my materials.
Card 49: Billboard

Card 50: Escape

Card 51: Number

I like how I stretched myself in Cards 52-54
Card 52: Friendship

Card 53: Note to Self

Card 54: Shadow

Cards 55-57 included some chunkier accents.
Card 55: Pendulum

Card 56: Spin

Card 57: Kite

And, finally, Cards 58-61 had four videos and finished up the series. 
Card 58: Lime Green

Card 59: Skeeball

Card 60: Accordion

Card 61: Symphony

And with that, I'm finally done with ICAD 2019. Whew!! Now I can hopefully work on some other art journal and mixed media projects. If you missed any of the previous videos or just want to see them all grouped in one place, here's my ICAD 2019 Playlist on YouTube. 

As always, if you have any questions about how I created these cards, please don't hesitate to ask!


  1. I have heard that art journallign can be freeing and liberating. I understand that now from looking at your cards. There is a raw energy behind each of them, along with a story (I presume). I hope that you share those too some time.

    1. Divya, Oh yes, playing with the paint and pushing your feelings out on the page really is wonderful. I'm not sure that I have any additional stories to share with the cards. I think any thought I had about them was put in the videos.

    1. Aw, thank you so much. I encourage you to play and enjoy the process!

  3. I love your journalling pages and and some of the messages are really cool!


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
