30-30-30 Challenge + ICAD #28

Hey everyone! How are you guys doing today? I'm doing better than I was yesterday; I guess I just felt like I was having a bit of an off day. I'm better today though. I like the way that the stuff turned out. It seems that I just go through my phases. Today's 30-30-30 page was a bit more collage based than were some of my previous pages. I just painted on the border, and then worked the collage in the center. As I was working on this, I didn't really know what to expect. But I decided to just push through anyways and seeing what became of it. After flipping through a few pages of a magazine, I produced this image.

From there it was just a matter of working the collage at the bottom half of it. I experimented with a strip of paper that had large holes punched into it with a circle punch, and let some of the earlier layers show through. Then I added the piece that says 'trust'. These pieces that I've been using for titles lately were actually part of a punch out sheet that came with a pack of paper. They sometimes include those alongside stickers. Which I think is pretty cool. If you know how to use them.

Here's a bit of a better view of the collage, just for your enjoyment. And, of course, the journaling for this page was around the very edges of the page. I've been thinking lately about how I'm going to want to bind this, but I'm really not too sure yet. I'll figure it out. I will. Believe me.

And here is today's ICAD. I LOVE the imperfection of this piece! It was one of the very most basic ones that I have done thus far; it was composed of a single layer of media. 

I used a feather pen to draw lines all over the card with blue ink. It was super easy, but it gave me a very effective look. It didn't take very long either, which was cool. Sometimes I want to sit down and work for a long time on a card, but today wasn't really like that. I really just wanted to work on my workshop. Which I did. I did some videos. It was pretty cool. I'm really getting somewhere with this, and there might be an announcement coming up fairly soon. :) Anyways. I'll see you guys tomorrow. Bye!
