Index Card A Day


The last few days of this great challenge. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 61 days of making art every day.
Here are my last few cards.

Stencils and Pencils

machine felted scraps
I collected a box of sewing bits, the tiny craps and the cotton left at the end of a sewing session which you would normally throw in the bin. I machine felted them onto a piece of muslin and cut a piece for this card.

Lint and Flowers

I collected some lint from the tumble dryer. Over a few days I had some different colours and machine felted it onto some lightweight linen. I love the texture it produced, if a little dusty! It also amuses me greatly when I recall the face of my husband when I told him what it was! The flowers are hand felted.

And as it is the last day of the project this is my only digital card. I had seen someone make a crossword of words but I can’t find the blog now, if it was your card let me know? but my words didn’t turn out to be a good shape for a crossword so I made the words fit together like this.

So my twenty words say thank you to Tammy at Daisy Yellow for a brilliant project, and thank you all for looking at my cards and saying such nice things.

  1. I’ve enjoyed your cards, too! Each time you post, I’m amazed at the variety of styles and materials. Great stuff! My favourite here is definitely Scraps. I just want to reach out across the ocean to touch it!! Love your digital tribute to the challenge, too.

  2. Hi Miriam
    Wow! What a cool post, I love all your colours and textures, especially the texture in your felted flowers. What a great challenge you have undertaken for 61 days. Perhaps I may consider doing something like this in the future.

  3. Wow, what a finale to such a great two months’ worth of creativity! It has always been exciting to see your next little mini-project snd these are no exception. Lint from the washing machine? Genius! And I do like your stencils and pencils …
