I’ll be joining Daisy Yellow’s Index-Card-A-Day Challenge, which starts on June 1st and doing a little pre-challenge prep seemed to be a good idea. I’m pretty sure I’ll be sticking to good-old 3 by 5 cards — the area is big enough but not too big, they’re easier to to carry with me than 4 by 5s, and already have a decent-sized stash (I’m a back-to-school sales junkie…) Did a little experimenting on a 3 by 5 earlier in the week — mandala (of course), some playing around with colored pencil shading for greater dimension:
My to-do list for the weekend includes clearing away the mess of stuff stashed under, over and generally around the drawing table under the window in my workroom. I’ve been using the big utility for drawing and painting; it needs to go back into service as a cutting and construction surface for my sewing and fiber projects. If nothing else, the start of this year’s ICAD challenge is giving me an extra incentive to finally get this done.
