I love dragonflies so thought I would have a go at doing a diagram of one.. 

 #40 Kaleidoscope
Trying out some new gel pens for this one.

 #41 The Moon
Some dangles of sparkly stars off the moon..

 #42 Text
One of the ladies in the Index card a day challenge had a beautiful baby Melody so I did an index card for her. 

 #43 Violin of Cello
I found the perfect quote for this card prompt and had fun drawing a violin. 

#44 Kokeshi doll 
I used watercolour to colour in this one for today.

#45 Dala Horse
I had a few tries at this little horse. who would have thought such a simple drawing could be so difficult the first one looked like a dog.. 

So there you are a week of fun.. Its quite funny really as I have never drawn as much as I have on these index cards and I am really enjoying it..  Come on over to daisyyellow ICAD and find out all the information and join in on the fun...

Index Card a Day #32 to #38

#32 Tea or Coffee 
Collage of all my favourite drinks that keep me going in the day.. I brought new coffee mugs so I scanned the image and collaged it on.. 

#33 Tomorrowland
I did the wonky land for the tomorrowland prompt thought it was fun to do it so small. Used sharpie's for the buildings and neocolour II for the larger areas.. The index cards just don't like water much.. 

#34 Independence day or Flag
I created the flag of my world all the things that appear in my art on my flag.. Black and white across the bottom and top.. Spots and dangles.  Dictionary paper with acrylic paint, writing and a butterfly.. Of course in my world the sky would be pink.. 

#35 Postage stamp
Thought I would make my own postage stamps with faces on them.. 


#36 Tag or Label
For some reason I just had to write that on there, so now your it.. Peerless watercolour background with France Papillon cube stamp.. 
#37 Lollypops
Sharpie pens with Dylusion sprayed paper centres. 

#38 Green
I watched a tutorial from Roben Marie Smith on mail art and she had made some wonderful mail art with some of her journal pages.. So thought ok well I can do that on an index card and try it out.. Have been looking forward to doing more sewing on my cards.. 

Come on over to daisyyellow ICAD and find out all the information and join in on the fun... 

Have a great day

Where I intended...


I have been doing a lot of collage style journaling and learning lots over at the The Artstronauts club. I only have 2 more pages left in this small journal I made out of scrapbook paper..  Cutting and sticking and putting together different papers and mixing them into characters is fun and I am really enjoying it.. 

Going to link this up over at Balzer designs. Pop on over and see all the wonderful journaling that is getting linked up.. 

Have a great day 
Sandy :)

Index Card A day 28, 29, 30 & 31

#28 Robot 
Had to do little R2-D2 fromStar wars he is my favourite little robot. It was fun to draw him and put one of his quotes on the page.  :)

#29 California
I did the famous California redwoods.. I painted them in peerless watercolours and popped a quote on it.. If I ever go to California I would love to see them.. 

#30 Red
I have hardly done any dangles on the Index cards so had to do some and this was the perfect opportunity for them.. I was just going to do them across the top but as usual when I start on them I cant stop. 

#31 Flower Bouquet
I just used some flowers that I had on my desk to do this one. Some of the deli paper gelli print flowers and some daisies that I drew and cut out.. Trusty old Typewriter came out for the wording... 

Come on over to daisyyellow ICAD and find out all the information and join in on the fun... There is still another month to go yet so still plenty of time to play along...

Have a great day

Earth laughs in flowers...

I have joined up at The Artstronauts club and have been having a wonderful time looking at all the videos and printing out collage sheets to play with.  I made a book that Teesha had in one of her videos made out of scrapbook paper.. It is the perfect size for me to get the hang of it all.. Here are a few of the pages that I have done so far in it.. 


First time I tried to stay with a theme across all three pages.
Click to make it bigger..


I call them butterfly ladies...


Tried some feather hair.

So just a couple of the pages I have done so far, I have done 11 .. I have about 10 more pages left in the book to do it is fun with all the little flap out pages.. Will have to do a small youtube of it with my phone when it is all finished.
So having fun and find it relaxing just pop my music on and collage away.. 

Have a great day
Sandy :)

Index Card A Day June 24, 25, 26 & 27

June 24 Brown

I have just joined The Artstronauts club I so love Teesha Moore's style of collage it's just so fun.. Reminds me of when I was in art class at school and we did collage ( I won a prize in the show once for collage when I was in secondary school) I have always been drawn to this style think that is why I have been working so hard on my hand writing, working towards this style of art.. 
June 25 Maple leaf

It has been so windy here in Australia that I thought that my leaves had to be flying around in that wind...

June 26 Magnifying Glass

You will have to use your imagination for this one for all the tiny little magnifying glasses that I used on my Mandala...

June 27 Album Cover

Showing my age here but the first album cover that came to mind that I thought that I could actually draw was this one.. Was fun to do the sketchy writing..

Come on over to daisyyellow ICAD and find out all the information and join in on the fun... There is still another month to go yet so still plenty of time to play along... 

I am joining in at the fun over at  Paint Part Friday . 

Have a great day
