A lot of my index cards start as scraps from other projects.
This one came together after experimenting with distressed magazine pages
(technique from Katie Kendrick video on Create Mixed Media website)
This one used up some painted cards I made for my new zine
I was also playing around with some shimmery acrylic paints I got at Target from their new "kids made modern" line. colors were yummy - total impulse buy.
This one is made from experiments with distress ink and water, and an un-used scrap of text that was laying on my desk.
And this used the price tags and receipt from my thrift shopping adventure (plus a page from one of the books I bought there)
By Tuesday, I was crazy busy getting ready for a spontaneous surprise road trip to my sister's house in Virginia. Only time for a list.
and after a half day of school followed by an 8 hour drive yesterday, I only had energy for a list. (though I managed so scrape some paint on the card first) (pardon the crappy phone photo)
Here are Max's cards. He continues to enjoy it even though he doesn't create every day.
These next ones are all part of his "Minecraft" series.
(It's the video game he eats/sleeps/breathes these days)
The best part of this next one is that he wasn't kidding. He was actually excited to clean the bathrooms. (though I think he appreciates the irony of how weird that is)
This next one is an ode to a fallen ice cream cone.
(note, no actual ice cream cones were harmed in the making of this index card)
I'm not sure where this Android tribute came from. We are die-hard apple users. Perhaps it's rebellion.
His next one takes the minimalist approach.
I'll continue to create cards on my mini-vacation since I packed my emergency supply kit!
don't leave home without it!
