Index card a day 2019

Index card a day for 2019 begins tomorrow. In case you've never heard of it, ICAD(for short) is a creative art challenge that runs from the June 1st until July 31st. This is the ninth year anniversary for the 61 day art challenge.
I have only participated once before, in 2016, where I used the hashtag #aliciaobrienicad when posting photos of my completed daily cards. I'm going to continue using it this year on Instagram and Facebook.

In 2016 I used lined, 6 x 4 inch index cards, because that's all that was available in our local newsagent. The cards fit perfectly in a gift box of the same size and I still have my cards from  
that year stored away in the box.

The newsagent had only blank index cards the other day, so I am working with a blank canvas this time round. I am excited to get started!

Let it be known, I love stationery. Accumulating new paints, pens and markers for the challenge was a joy! My previous ICAD efforts included a lot of using paint sample chips also, so I am going to relieve the local hardware store of some of those today. I've already used them on my title card for this year and really loved using them in 2016.

The other medium I realised I had a liking for was using black felt pen over a water colour background, so I will try to explore that again this time.

Are you an arty, creative person? Tell me about your last fling with creativity.

  1. What a cute and crafty idea, can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Yay for ICAD and I can't believe it was 3 years ago you did this. I had last year off. Now rearing to go. I also am sticking to one size this year: Officeworks has coloured and white 3x5 (old speak inches) with line on one side, blank on the other. I am not certain what I "am going" to create tomorrow but will wait for inspiration! There are a few more Aussies than there used to be. Did you pay ($9 AUD) to join the smaller FB group? I did this time round for the community connection. Denyse x

    1. I have noticed there is a FB group you need to pay for, but haven't joined. I've when I do IG posts I have likes from new people just using the hashtags for icad. The first week is about text and symbols, so I will use that for a guide.

  3. So very nice. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

  4. What a lovely idea. I look forward to following your artistic adventures!
