ICAD & Stickers!!!

Today is June 1st - the 1st day of ICAD.  Did you make your card?  I made mine:

And then I put it in my art journal.  I started doing that last year - using the cards as part of my art journal pages - and really liked it so I am going to do it again this year.  Here is the page:

Of course, the card and that tab at the bottom (which came off of some junk mail) both open up.  I did some extra writing under the ICAD but not the tab.  Here is a picture of them opened up:

Do you see the stickers that I used?  This art journal page is FULL of them.  There are luggage tags from a trip (or 2?) that I took on American Airlines, a name tag from a dinner I attended, washi tape and stickers from Marcia Beckett.  Marcia is hosting a sticky journal challenge/guest artist challenge!  As part of this series on her blog,, she sent me a package of stickers:

That's a lot of stickers, right?  I am really excited about using them!!!  So, that is why I got started right away!!  I got the stickers yesterday, I used them today.  Today I just used the stickers that matched my page... I tend to do that - stay in a color scheme.  Also, for some reason those number stickers really spoke to me.  I already know when I am going to use my other yellow 66 sticker!!

Anyways, go check out Marcia's blog.  Follow it, and you can get lots of sticker inspiration and see how different artists use stickers in their art journals.

That is all for now friends.  Have a great weekend and come back soon!!


  1. Love it! Thanks so much for joining me and being so quick! I was thinking of color schemes for one of the prompts and this will be perfect. I will put this on my blog probably next week.

  2. Fabulous card and I love how you integrated it into your art journal! :) I look forward to seeing your cards through ICAD.
