For the last few days of the
Index-Card-a-Day challenge I decided
to create black and white pieces.
July 27 and 28 are zentangles.
A relaxing, meditative doodle that I can
do while I'm watching television...
I've made a total of 61 pieces of
art on index cards
during the 2013 icad challenge! It's been
a lot of fun. The small 4"x6" space is
easy to fill with drawings, scraps or doodles.
It doesn't take long...unless you want it to!
I enjoyed exploring a theme each week, and
working in a series.
I found myself carrying index cards along
with me wherever I went! (you know, just in case
the spirit moved or there was time to fill)
It also was helpful to know what I'd be posting on
my blog each Friday. Having a goal to work towards
helps me accomplish more. I joined the ICAD Flickr
group, and figuring out how to post on there was a
bit of a challenge for me---but it's always good to
learn new skills! I still haven't figured out how to
"add favorites" though!
My stack of index cards is getting big, as I've been
doing this for several years now. Last year I bought
a pretty cardboard recipe box
for a cheap price, and added a
counted cross-stitch piece to the front.
This year, I went for simple and easy.
I purchased a plastic index card box with snap closures.
It has a little pocket for a label on the front where I
noted the themes of each week of the challenge.
I am not sure if I will alter it in some way, we'll see...
I am pretty sure some of these
index-card-a-day art pieces will end up
on art journal pages! And I am planning
to continue to explore Series of art works.
