I printed out some new collage sheets from The Artstronauts Club. Always awesome to play with some of Teesha's collage sheets and lots of scraps from magazines and prints of my art cut up. Its fun to see what you can put together to make a page. I thought this kind of looked like it was underwater so tried to find a quote with water in it. Thought this quote worked well.

You must live in the present,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.
By Henry David Thoreau.

I had a painted background with some DecoArt Americana paints. Loved the colours but it has been done for a while and have not known what to do next. Till today and just started playing with collage. Have not done any collage for months, felt good to get the scissors out and create some new characters.

This is before the quote. I nearly just left it like this but I do like it with the quote added.

Have a great day

ICAD 2016 is coming..

I am getting excited. Its nearly time for this years Index Card A Day challenge with Tammy and all the wonderful group over at Daisy Yellow. It starts on June the 1st so not long. 
I always enjoy the challenge of a little small art on an Index card, with a prompt every day. It is not a daunting size and to be able to do anything and not even follow the prompt if you like, is just fun. I always create something that I would never do otherwise and I have fun copying them on the printer to use in my collage art afterwards. Gives me so many images to have fun with. 

This will be the 3rd year that I have participated here are a few of my favourites of the index cards that I have done so far.


So grab some index cards and join in the fun, hope to see you there. 

Have a great day
Sandy :) aka Vicki-Ann :)
