Glue It Tuesday: ICAD Edition

I have been doing a great job keeping up with Tammy's Index-Card-A-Day (ICAD) challenge, but not such a great job keeping up with posting my cards.  Here are the results of my second week of creating a little piece of index card art each day.  You'll see that in addition to digging into my marker drawer, I've spent plenty of time with my UHU glue stick, qualifying this post for Aimee's Glue It Tuesday!
ICAD3 #8:  "LBJ"
I made a collage of some of the pamphlets I picked up in Austin when I visited the LBJ library.  My husband's cousin is the director there, which allowed us a great behind-the-scenes look in addition to the regular exhibits.
ICAD3 #9:  "Austin"
I made a collage of some of the free publications I picked up in Austin when I visiting there about a month ago.  I had made a bunch of postcards from these types of clippings, and I knew I wanted Austin represented in my ICAD cards.
ICAD3#10:  "Circle Series:  Blue"
I used my circle cutting templates to create circles from various magazines that were headed to recycle bin.  I used washi tape to create a kind of frame along the edges.
ICAD3#11:  "Circle Series:  Vintage"
Just as above, I used my circle cutters and washi tape for this card.
ICAD3#12:  "Circle Series:  Green"
Another in the series from above.
ICAD3#13:  "Over and Under"
I used an exercise called Over and Under from Quinn McDonald's Raw Art Journaling to create this card, and had fun with markers to fill in the lines and spaces.
ICAD3#14:  "Stuff on My Desk"
Perhaps my favorite exercise, I just grabbed scraps from my tabletop, left over from other projects, and glued them down to create this card, with some marker semi-circles at the bottom.
My pile of index cards is slowly growing, growing.  I will try to get on Tammy's schedule for posting updates on Fridays.  I'm finding her ICAD challenge to be a very satisfying creative habit!

Check my blog here to see my cards from week one of the challenge.

Love the circle series! Such a great idea, how come I never thought of it? I'm off to dig out my old circle (and other shape templates) from my scrapbooking stash!

I agree that the variety of your cards is what really impresses me! What a fun project. :-) My two nephews are here visiting me for two weeks so I have done nothing artistic but am having lots of fun.

What a fun set of cards. I particularly like your desk scraps one. It always delights me to see what wants to be made from the "leftovers."

great cards. The vintage circles have so much depth to them! Your over and under reminds me of a tangle I've drawn before. Love the black background {:-Deb

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

Any tips?

Love your ICAD pieces! Even though I didn't get started with that, it is still something I may do just for myself sometime in the future. Circles are my favorite shape; open or solid.

Isn't it so much fun, doing these cards? Is this your first year doing them? It's mine, and boy, has it reinvigorated my art making. I don't worry what they look like, I just make what feels right at the time and I can't wait to make a book of them.

I love your cards, particularly 'vintage', and seeing them stacked together they look so yummy.

Happy summer, my friend!
