Okay, I know I've already gone on and on about how much I love the index-card-a-day challenge at Daisy Yellow and how it all starts again Friday and I CAN'T WAIT.
I'll try not to repeat myself.
But I keep bumping into people who kinda want to do this but are afraid.
so I'm here to say, shut up.
you can do this.
it's an index card for crying out loud. not a masterpiece.
and sure, I made some cards last summer that I really love:
but I also made some that were less than stellar. that were "quick-get-it-done cards."
some were downright ugly.
it's not the point.
I'm going to show you some of my "I'm too tired/not inspired" cards
even the ones that aren't pretty make me smile when I see them because they make me remember.
|my very first card!|
|made around midnight in desperation|
|put my hand on the copier|
|picked up a scrap of Max's drawings|
|spatters and words|
|rubber stamp and messy writing over messy paint|
|actual nail polish. this one cracks me up.|
|this one cracks me up too. took about a minute.|
|lists are a perfectly acceptable way to use a card|
|I was working on something else and had lots of paint left on my palette. did a crappy job with the rubber stamps. oh well.|
|Cut up some extra painted paper from a different project. and I like the way it came out. but it's still just scraps of paper on an index card, y'know?|
|more leftover scraps put to use|
|circles made with water color crayons and smudged.|
this is loose.
this is casual.
this is fun.
make something small every day for two months.
don't over think it.
because it's not about being "good enough"
you're just fine.
go here and read about it.
or go here and see what people posted in the flickr group
now go dig out the index cards.
you can do this
see you there.
