ICAD days 1 to 8

And so here’s week 1 of the Index Card a Day Challenge for 2017. Some of them got overworked. It’s hard to edit for a 4×6 inch space! And some of them were rushed, or done in pairs. But the first 8 days were fun, and that’s the important part!!

ICAD Day 23, 2016

I’m not really sure whether I want to be talked into this or out of this but it’s that time of year again… the ICAD Challenge is going to start June 1st and I have to decide whether to take part.

On the plus side, I enjoyed (mostly) participating last year for the first time. I made some cool cards that I really like. I even made a few process videos as I made my cards, and that was a fun challenge too!

But it’s a two month challenge, and by the end I was so over it. I don’t do well with lengthy challenges. If it was just a 30 day challenge the decision would be so much easier!

The part of me that wants to play with the cool kids really wants to do this… but I know myself  — at least a little bit! — and committing to a card every day for two months seems like a lot right now.

I’m thinking about just collage and no mixed media to make it simpler. Or found poetry maybe, but that’s tough too. At one point I was going to make over a bunch of Project Life cards in my use or discard bin but I’m still pondering the place of mixed media in my scrapbooks. I want to get back to drawing again, so that could be an option… ???

I guess I have a day to decide.
