Index Card A Day 2015

I heard about the Index Card a Day challenge from Robin at Pink House Studio

The challenge involves creating art on a 3 in. x 5 in. index card for the months of June and July. 61 cards. The idea is to create something each day, not worry about creating a museum piece. Sounds good. Prompts for themes and materials can be found on the ICAD 2015 Index page in case you want to play, too.

I found some index cards, and then....didn't like the idea of index cards scattered all over the place. Where could I put them? What could I do with them? I know, I know. I shouldn't be worrying about this.

While picking some things up at Target, I found a spiral bound book of index cards. Perfect. Until I sat down to do the challenge. The index cards are screaming fluorescent colors. It shouldn't make a difference, but it did.

I have tons of  scrap paper inside the hope chest. I found a bunch of small, watercolor paper samples bolted together.  Really nice paper. Shades of white and pastels, one side plain and the other printed with the name of the mill and type of paper. The paper was just languishing in the pile. So I cut the paper down to 3 in. x 5 in. I'm happier though I still don't know how I'm going to corral them.

I thought I'd just jump right in not worry about catching up. To get me going I'd follow the prompts. My first card. Owl, from the Warner Bros. cartoon.

  1. I love your owl! :) Why not punch holes in them and put them in the spiral norebook you got at Target? (I'm putting mine in one I got at Staples.)
