ICAD Update

Continuing with the ICAD Challenge with Daisy Yellow and all of the wonderfully creatives who are participating…Days 10- 20. I have been experimenting with paint, although my favorite  creative endeavor is collage. Having fun with all of this, and look forward to treating myself to my very first canvas at the end of the challenge! I loved trying Zentangles aka Doodles! 

I would love to know which one you like best!

I am especially fond of “Every Day”! 
But each one of them is part of a creative continuum that reflects a process…so they are tiny treasures to me! You should see some of the great cards shared on the Facebook page, daily- as well as consider jumping in for some creative adventures for yourself!

  1. I love all the Zendoodles! I also love the waves for the background…so soothing! I love the scripture focus on your art! God Bless!


  2. Dawn!! How cool – I was thinking of you this very morning and how I needed to come by and visit! I am slowly working my way back into Blogland after a really stressful semester – and going forward with fresh vision, re-branding – and focus on wellness, blogging, publishing – and returning to my art with an Etsy shop!!! God is soooo good and I am feeling more like my creative self after being in a season of “wrung-out”! Love your journal art! I'll be delving into this myself – collage and vintage re-purposing and everything tells a story! Plus, I starting my own series of memes from my photography so facebook and pinterest will be flooded – I hope – and the Word of the Lord will be creatively uploaded for all to surf! Be coming up that way – maybe – in August. Still too early to plan with my daughter's schedule and Kenzie's birthday party not set yet – she'll be three!Joy!Kathy


  3. Great idea! I love this. I keep wanting to record things my kids say each day on index cards. Maybe I could incorporate both. It would also give me a creative outlet since I'm lacking in that area at the moment.


  4. Hello! I found your blog through Christian Mommy Blogger. What beautiful miniature works of art! This is the first I've heard of icad. Looks like I have something new to learn.I love index cards – so useful, can't imagine life without them!


  5. Dawn- So glad you have been enjoying the icad…I have been humming along with a few days missed…I really love your doodles….and the for better and better card :)Also like that you are experimenting with so many different media!
