#DYICAD 2017 Challenge: Week Three


I'm back again with week 3 of the #dyicad 2017 challenge.

The challenge is for 61 days. This year I am doing it along with my fellow artist and friend, Jenn Engle of Mixed Media Jenn


You can follow along daily on either my Instagram or my Facebook page.





Here's a summary of week one, days 15 through 21:









             

 Made a CHANGE in my process:
As I work on my ICAD challenge I am finding I love some of the pieces so much I want to frame/sell them. So from now on I'm just either going to lay quotes down for the photo, or attach each digitally to the photo. ALSO, some days I find I want to work a bit bigger. I started with small index cards, went to larger - now I have been working on 8x10 paper. The goal of the challenge for me is to just do something small each day. So I'm just rewriting the rules (it's kinda my MO #rebel)... Live with it people! Lol! I am also cutting up all of them and keeping the individual words in a baggie for future use. (Because I really need to hoard just one more thing here!)

Remember, you can play too!

On the Road :: Michigan - Part Two



Recently I travelled to Holland, Michigan to visit with my best friend from high school, Ellen. Wherever I go I am always on the lookout for art and this trip was no exception. As usual I took a zillion photos! I decided I'd shared my visit with you. This is Part Two. (read Part One HERE)


I really loved Michigan. It's true I find art in everything and love to capture what I see in photographs. Sometimes it's something I see in nature, but other times it's man made structures.

Here are just a few of the photos I took. 




I arrived at the Grand Rapid's Airport. What a greeting! When you walk out of the terminal you see this interesting structure and the shadows it casts everywhere. 



On our very first adventure we went to a private beach. We walked down to the lower deck and just sat and enjoyed a glass of wine. The view with the Lake, sand and bluffs was spectacular, but I loved the housing too. The colors and angles appealed to me.








  


When we finished we had to venture back up these stairs...it was much easier coming down.




After that climb we deserved a reward, after a little rest we ventured to their local watering hole and enjoyed music by friends, Jack and Jeff. The craft beers were also enjoyable. OF COURSE, I took a few photos.






My photos started out artsy.... and then went downhill from there! LOL


Can you spot which are the BEFOREs 
and which are the AFTERs?!!



One more installment to come, 
next time it's truly ART related. 
Well, maybe a glass a wine or two will be shared.

Once again I have decided to take part in a challenge. This time it's the ICAD* challenge for Daisy Yellow Art. She does it every year. I took part in 2015, but only for the month of July.

The actual challenge is for 61 days. This year I am doing it along with my fellow artist and friend, Jenn Engle of Mixed Media Jenn! We are hoping to keep each other accountable! Let's see how we do.

Here's a summary of week one, days 1 through 7:










The good part about working with small pieces is that there isn't as much pressure and you are free to just play and experiment. If you haven't tried it, you should. You can jump in and play with us at anytime!
