the VERY INSPIRING index card a day project, devised and hosted by miss tammy on the fabulous daisy yellow blog!
my darling stef found it, of course!* and being as i've totally fallen off the art-journaling wagon lately, i immediately decided that i physically NEED to do this, just to get back in the vitally important "pointless art"** habit. so i started and i mean to keep going. i'll probably post some of them (maybe all?) in little clumps! here are my first two cards.
for #1 the prompt was "take a voyage":
(mme clouds paper, illustrations cut from a magazine and a vintage book, a stamp i got at long's drugs in the ala moana mall and a dymo label)
for card #2 i grabbed one of the ideas from list of prompts for the first week #8 "grid":
(k and co + american crafts alphas, plus 9,000 types of decorative tape including these brands: heidi swapp, hambly, tim holtz,7 gysies, free view, martha stewart and... ok, lots more...)
making these was the most fun i've had in quite some time... i love just going crazy and gluing stuff on instinctively, without much of an agenda. my plan is to try to do these in about 15 minutes each evening, and my only rule (apart from the governing concept that each prompt be accomplished on a 3x5 index card) will be to NOT to toss out or start over on a card, no matter what happens, just KEEP GOING. so whaddaya think-- wanna play? check out daisy yellow for all the details, then jump in, darlings!!!!! ♥♥♥
*one of the many, MANY wonderful things about being friends with stephanie is that at least a few times a week i get emails with the MOST AMAZING links to things that lovely lady knows i will enjoy. kind of like a personalized boutique version of her fabulous LINK LOVE posts every thursday!***
**i use the phrase "pointless art" in the best possible sense: to make things aimlessly, without deadlines or expectations or an attachment to a finished product; to try techniques and experiments that may utterly fail to LOOK GOOD... but teach important lessons (or are just FUN!); in short the ultimate expression of bruce mau's point 3: process is more important than outcome!!! ♥♥♥
