ICAD 2017 - Day 37 - Kaomoji or Emoji

Hi everyone!

I don't know about you but I had to google 'kaomoji' and found that it was a Japanese emoticon style. That's as far as I went with that research. I just went straight to the emoji prompt. I even googled this one and found that there are letters associated with each emoji (well, maybe not but someone had a graphic of the letters of the alphabet and relevant emoji next to each). So I decided to just write my name in emoji's.

ICAD 2017 - Day 36 - Perfume

Hi everyone!

A quick card for today's 'perfume' prompt. I started out with a wipe-off card so I didn't need to create a background, although I added a couple of oxide inks to add some extra dimension. Then it was just a matter of printing, cutting out & sticking the elements down on the card. Voila!

ICAD 2017 - Day 35 - Fav Type of Apple

Hi everyone!

A fun prompt today!

Even though my first thought was to attempt to draw a granny smith apple (my favourite kind of apple) I decided that my second favourite apple was the Apple iPad so I decided to draw the Apple logo instead!

ICAD 2017 - Day 34 - 4th of July

Hi everyone!

Even though this is an important American date, we as Aussies are aware of its importance but do not celebrate it. Having said that, all I could think of was to add a calendar and add some fireworks! For me it is just another date, that's why I added the calendar and focused on the fireworks positioned on day 4 of the month of July.

Art Journal - Page 164

Hi everyone!

Another art journal today - yay!

Today I wanted to create a vintage page using a stamp set that I should use more often, some dies I rarely use, and of course the oxide inks again LOL. I also wanted to use up some of my off-cut pages as my folder is overflowing! There are a lot of layers and a lot of elements on this page so it's a bit longer than I usually upload.
