words only



Today I found the Embrace YOUR Art 365 challenge on FB, it is a year long challenge to create each day, which I must say is a real challenge with life coming in between and so on. But I want to give it a try. 
1 prompt each day, 365 days, 365 pieces of art. Find out everything about this challenge here:
http://www.tiaresmith.com/whats-happening/embrace-your-art-challenge/

I decided to use ICADS (= Indecxard) for this challenge, I think the size (not too big) is just right for this challenge. I am not sure yet what I eventually am going to do with all the ICADS, time will tell.
Today's prompt is only words.
This is what I came up with


I started out by collaging pieces of a dictionary page and coloring it with 4 shades of green with Derwent Inktense pencils



heat embossed in pink the letters of thank you and spray inked through a letter stencil with midnight blue Dylusions (this didn't go as planned because the ICAD was curled)



Handwritten the word Thank you and outlined it with a white posca pen which picked up the blue sprayink. I choose the word thank you because I am thankfull for so many reasons: I live in a peaceful country, I have no life treathening diseases, I have a nice job, a lovely husband and son, a nice home, time to craft...

    1. Thx, I don't think I will keep up, every day is just not possible and also I have other projects up and running, but it is fun and has low threshold, I am liking the small size and believe I will experiment more this way.
