ICAD 2022, part 1

We're just over two weeks into ICAD (Index Card a Day). This is a challenge that runs each June and July in which those participating use index cards to create little pieces of mixed media art. The originator, Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow, has optional weekly themes and daily prompts to help inspire the artists. As well, Nina Fickett has developed her own list of mixed media prompts if those are more your style. I don't tend to bother with the weekly themes at all but will take a look at both sets of prompts before working on my cards to see if they spark anything for me. Sometimes, I just go promptless, and sometimes I use both prompts. I've surprised myself this year by being able to get the video for each day recorded and on YouTube. I release them at 4pm (Central). I don't expect that I will be able to do this for the whole two months, but I will try! So that things don't get too overwhelming for me to share later, here are pictures of and links to the first fifteen. 

Day 1 (asterisk and graphite)

Day 2 (raw umber)

Day 3 (labyrinth and stamping)

Day 4 (key and book text)

Day 5 (pink and bread tie)

Day 6 (daydream and summer)

Day 7 (promptless)

Day 8 (promptless)

Day 9 (found and crimson)

Day 10 (Rubik's cube and collage)

Day 11 (rainbow and newsprint text)

Day 12 (blueprint and die cut)

Day 13 (pencil)

Day 14 (promptless)

Day 15 (art crayon)

You can probably tell that I'm having a good time just exploring different techniques and styles. I think that's kinda what ICAD is all about. We're only about a quarter way through this, and there's nothing saying you can't join in now. The rules are pretty loose. So what do you say? Are you gonna play along?

    1. Thanks, Cynthia! I was JUST thinking about adding some of those metro cards you sent to me, but since that's creating more scraps - I'll wait until the project is over (unless one of the prompts has me drawn to them!)


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