Index Card Art Part 2

Hello Friends!

Well, I almost forgot that I promised to do a midweek post to share the ICAD art from this year, so here it is.  I hope you'll pop back on Sunday to look at the pieces I've done for Artful August too!  Art is so therapeutic, as well as fun. 

This is another Neurographic piece, the reverse side is always interesting when alcohol ink is used.  In fact, all the cards I'm sharing today are Neurographic or variations on that theme.

The "right" side

Alcohol ink and micron pens

close up of above with light shining through looks like stained glass

water colour pencils, Staedtler fine liners and a water spray bottle

Acrylic inks

monochrome using grey mixed media

Gouache {gives very flat colour not easy to blend or shade} and Posca pens

Alcohol ink, Acrylic, and erasing areas using Surgical Spirit on a cotton bud

Variation of above

Well, my friends, I hope you like them.  Do you have a favourite?  I'd love to know, and why you like it.

Until next time
Stay safe, stay well

  1. Hi Deb, they are all wonderfull, but my fave is definitely the 'stained glass' one. You have made a fantatsic collection of art! Hugs, Valerie

    1. Thank you Valerie, yes it's been a lot of fun and more experiments with media and form in the coming weeks.

  2. They are all so gorgeous and colourful but if I had to pick one it would be the stained glass one - it is beautiful. Gosh you have made me want to have a go! Stay safe and well.

    1. Thank you Ragged Robin. I'm not surprised at your choice. You really should give it a go, my friend.

  3. Deb, I like the Gouache card. The vibrant colors are stunning. Along with your shading it gives quite an interesting look. It is clear you are enjoying this process. So happy for you! xoxo

    1. Thank you, Martha Ellen. Yes, I'm enjoying it more this year than ever before. Possibly because 62 of us are in a small support group where we share ideas and offer encouragement to each other. xoxo

  4. I do like those neurographics. Those inks are so pretty -- they just pop!

    1. Thank you Jeanie. There are lots of "how to do" videos, so I wonder if you'll give it a go?
