Another week of Icad complete. It has been a busy week in the end, with the worst storms for over 37 years battering us about. Thankfully we have only lost some plants, trees and the back fence and some flooding in the lounge. Some neighbours have lost their roofs and a lot of people have it a lot worse.
I am pleased to report that Victoria and I both have completed the week! :) Sharing this journey with Victoria has being an unexpected delight!
I will also be double dipping with Summer of Color for two cards, I am hoping to get a couple of journal pages complete but that may not happen this weekend with clean up and drying out taking place. Maybe tonight.
I used my gelatin print collection to make some rainbow raindrops and Victoria was seeing rainbows as well! :)
I was sailing away to bluer skies and Victoria was captivated by the magic of Matariki (Maori New Year).
My first Summer of Color submission, I cut the petals from gelatin prints and old gift bags. Victoria was also seeing flowers! :)
Following a prompt from the Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman I cut an image in half, with half of it on this index card and half on the next one. Victoria was excited by new Sharpie markers. :)
This is the other half of the image from the previous card, and Victoria was busy rediscovering her spirograph.
The childrens school is currently undergoing major work with one block being demolished and rebuilt. We were fortunate to get to school in time to see the work start, and I was captivated along with the teachers and students, by the grace and choreography exhibited by the huge digger as it removed all trace of a school block that has stood for 80 years. With all the stories that the block held as well. A poignant and enchanting moment in time. I did this card when I got home pulling the colours I wanted from magazine images and sketches to get the digger shape right. When Victoria saw the sketches she decided to capture the digger image as well. I think watching the demolition took up much of the children’s day! :)
School was cancelled with the storms and no power so my card was made with left over petals (and I am double dipping it with Summer of Color), and Victoria imagined warmer days. :)
I hope you all have a most fantastic weekend. :)
