Getting closer to the finish line and pleasingly up to date! :) It is a good feeling to actually finish a challenge and I have learnt a lot from this one of using only collage. Like that I really like paint. Also that I much prefer the collages that I make with my own painted papers. Both useful things to know! I did cheat on one of the cards this week by putting in some pen dots for eyes, but I did not like the eyeless look and the eyes I cut out looked wrong.
Victoria is still doing them as well, although her attention to them has gotten smaller and smaller, which is the opposite of what I thought would happen while she is on holidays. Though I am still mightily impressed that she is still doing these mostly self-directed, I have only had to ask her once or twice if she is working on an index card today. Though this week she asked me how many more days until the end, so I think the novelty is wearing off! :)
I was using up the scraps from my collage box while Victoria was still seeing rainbows. :)
I thought I would try a matryoshka doll design I have been thinking about since ICAD began this year, and Victoria was playing with shiny metallics.
I was inspired by this card of Tammy’s, while Victoria cut out a circle from one index card and used it to colour in circles on this index card.
I was playing with the matryoshka doll idea again (where their eyeless state disturbed me), while Victoria was inspired by Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum.
I hope everyone is having a creatively-filled weekend. :)
