Lately I stumbled across an idea that sparked my creativity a bit again. I think it is just what I need; something to keep making some art, but with a realistic commitment for time right now. It is called Index Card a Day (ICAD) by Tammy at Daisy Yellow. The idea is to create something on a small index card everyday for all of June and July 2012, check out the link for more info.
Here are my two first cards:
June 1st 2012
June 2nd 2012
I can already tell I am going to have quite a variation in my cards at the end of all this! What I have enjoyed so far is for my first card I was into it and had the time to spend on it and that shows in the final product while for my second I really just did something to tell myself I had done it. The magic though is realizing how much I was enjoying making the second one. It took only a couple minutes, and I really didn't feel like doing any art, but I did, and when it was done, it felt good. I needed a gentle reminder of this...making art, any kind of art, feels good.
