Summer of Color 2015

Week 1

By coincidence, the first week's Summer of color colors are blue, blue and green--and my first week's ICADs perfectly fit the bill.

And I didn't even realize that I was playing!

Here's the bluest, greenest one of the bunch.
blue background, stenciled while wet with white to create a lighter shade of blue and green collage bits. The outline was done with a blue InkJoy pen

ICAD 2015 has begun

And I hope it's what I need to get me back on track!  If you don't know about this challenge you can find all about it here.  Basically it is a challenge to produce a piece of art ever day from June 1 to July 31.  the art must be created on 3 x 5 index cards...but other than that anything goes.

my pieces so far this year are collage on painted and stenciled cards
but who knows!

First five
