These past few days, I have been feeling as though I want to run away from home. My leg pain is still here, I've been having troubles with some nutty neighbors, and the unemployment blues are ever-present.
One thing that's helping me cope are my ICADs. The challenges are getting to be a bit more difficult, but if I don't find any of them inspiring, I make up my own composition. It's all about freedom.
And so, without further adieu, here are my latest cards.
|July 12: Materials used: vellum cutout, found text, scrapbook paper, various scraps.|
|Pink and White: Materials used: Washi tape, Japanese paper, scrapbooking paper, postoids, postage stamps, punched shapes.|
