It must be time for a update on what I am doing. I just got back from a terrific trip to visit my friend in Oregon. We went to the coast for several days and then to Portland. So much beauty to see in Oregon that is very different from what I see here in my beautiful desert. Every time I am coming in for a landing at PDX I am looking out the window and saying to myself 'Dang! it is so GREEN!' Tall pine trees and flowers and water everywhere. It is a fantastic and refreshing break for me to renew and recharge. When I returned on June 1st, I discovered it is time for the Index Card A Day challenge. I have never tried to do this one...but did research it when I was curious about why people call index card art ICAD..lol. This year, I am going to do it! It should be do-able right? Of course I really stink at following through with these long challenges. Have you been wondering where all my 'Color Me Positive' art journal pages are? Probably the same place half of my 'Daily Life Project' pages went last year..LOL. BUT..I did very well with National Non-Stop Art Journaling Month' in November last year. I made a page every day and even made a video everyday! For a MONTH..lol. Well, this challenge is sort of similar. There is a commitment to make art on a Index card everyday for from June 1st to July 31st. It is two months long...but they are much smaller bits of art. So, I am going to do it! I will make videos as well..but not every day. Maybe every 3 days or something. I am unsure at this point. So to kick it off...here are my first 3 days of ICAD :) If you would like to play along with me and many many other people..visit the website for DaisyYellowArt.
Day #1 - I am using 3" X 5" standard lined index cards. I will be punching a hole in the corner and then putting them all on a big D ring thingy I think. I wanted a sort of kick off cover one first...so I did this tree with little pink letter birds :)
Day #2 - I was drinking a Diet Coke in a can and was inspired by the odd color combination. Red, Purple, and Lime Green swirls on the silver can...with a little white and black thrown in. So I decided to make my card those colors. I played with some new stencils and added some Tim Holtz tiny words.
Day #3 - I was thinking about the kick off of the America Cup. This is a soccer tournament in Latin America and this is it's00th year running. Pretty impressive I thought. For me..this means...the TV gets taken over by the huge soccer fans in the house. Want to watch HGTV? Forget about it! Soccer Soccer and more Soccer is all that is on..LOL
So I will try to keep you apprised of my progress with this challenge. Both here on my blog and in videos on my Youtube channel. Wish me luck..or better yet..join me so we can keep on track together :)
