This ICAD (Index Card a Day) was made upon request, uh…demand is actually more appropriate, by my best friend. We were sitting in my craft room testing out new stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps and she turned to me and said, “Make me an ICAD.” So, I did! I wrote a naughty word on it because we’re a couple of sailors, but covered it up so that she knows the naughty word is there, but can’t see it. The card was made using Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Donna Salazar Mix’d Media Inx, UmWow Studio stencils, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, and a black Stabilo pen.
While my best friend was at my house, she absconded with one of my other ICADs and I am searching desperately for the footage because it came out very pretty and soft. Oh, well…guess I’ll have to try to duplicate the results!
A long, long, long time ago (okay maybe only a year but it feels like forever) Kellie Murton told me I HAD to try a technique using embossing powder and alcohol ink. She even sent me a tag she had made using this technique. I kept meaning to use it, but forgot to pull out my alcohol inks every single time! Well, guess what? I FINALLY REMEMBERED! And I’m glad I did. The technique is cool and fun and gives tons of depth to the UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel).
I started this page by using my Donna Salazar Mix’d Media INX, blended them together and the move on to the UTEE/alcohol ink. Then I did some stamping with archival ink. I finished the page off with some collage elements and stickers for a title and called it a day!

I created this art journal page in less than an hour (well, roughly an hour, anyway). I used Smooch Spritz (shimmery pigment sprays), Distress Ink, Dylusions, and UmWow Studio to create this colorful little page. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
I am running out of room in my Prima Art Journal. I really don’t want to destroy the gorgeous binding on this journal, so I needed to think of a way of using up a bunch of the pages without adding extra thickness on each page. My solution? Glue them together and make a super thick art journal page!
I used mostly distress ink, collage, some acrylic paint, and microbeads! This page is too much fun! It was fun to make and it’s fun to play with now that it’s done!
This is a fun page with lots of collage, lots of color, and lots of not caring what the final product looked like! This, ladies and gentlemen, is what FUN looks like…in mixed media, anyway!
