More Index Cards

I have been trying to follow Daisy Yellow's challenge to decorate an Index Card a Day (ICAD). You may be wondering why, and I thought I would give some of the reasons.

It gives me a chance / reason / excuse to do something creative every day.

 It is fun.

It lets me try out techniques in a way that does not intimidate.

It lets me use my art supplies and see how they interact with each other.

It lets me figure out what I like to do and what I don't.

It gives me permission to make mistakes.

And combine markers and paint and paper and fabric.

In case you are wondering what I plan to do with them, I am showing you an index card holder I bought this week.  They only had one design, but I figure that can be part of the challenge to keep adding to the outside as well as the inside of the box.

I bought some more index cards at the back to school sales!

I started this index cards challenge before the start date and plan to continue after the end date and plan to make a whole collection.

A very fun and challenging project, but still relaxed enough to feel like play. I love art supplies (pens, papers, markers, colored pencils) and have a little collection that doesn't get a lot of use. What a great way to make use of that stash.

You are already so creative with your sewing and your genealogy and your photography!
