got my card for today finished and photographed numbers 5-8. i am still working through exercises from the collage workshop book by randel plowman. i have also challenged myself to use only what scraps i already have and that i can reach from my chair (with the exception of one box of art scraps and my tapes). that included several boxes and drawers. so you would think that it would be easy to collect items to use. it took me longer than it should because 1) i tend to use similar color palettes all the time (blue/green or white/tan/black). i really had to dig to find the pinks, some yellows and oranges (for the next couple of days), and some reds; and 2) i tend to make books so many of my scraps are what are cut when i size book pages, usually to 6x9. i did find a lot of pieces in the 3x6 range and i can make a couple of mini books from them, so that was a plus.
any way, here are my cards:
day 5 - turquoise
day 6 - green
day 7 - pink
day 8 - red (i liked this one until i added the doodling, so i added the black tape to try to balance it out but i still don't like it). the clearance is in reference to trying to clear out paper and stuff!
linking up to ICAD. thanks for stopping by and have a good day, mary.
