I've been craving some inspiration and really wanting to get my creative juices flowing, so I was super excited when I stumbled on Daisy Yellow's Index-Card-A-Day challenge. The idea is simple, but can be taken in so many different directions. Here are the rules:
- Acquire some index cards (see more about my interpretation on this below ...)
- Create (as Daisy Yellow says "♥ draw ♥ doodle ♥ write ♥ collage ♥ paint ♥ cut ♥ haiku ♥ stamp ♥ stitch ♥")
- Repeat for 61 days (officially June 1 - July 31, 2013)
I'm feeling more creative just hearing about this!
I immediately went through my drawer of paper, envelopes and cards to see if I already had any index cards. Being me, my first concern was that I do not want to buy more paper products to participate in this, and I will definitely be doing an eco version of the challenge (trying to reuse, recycle and scavenge for materials).
Luckily for me I DO have a stack of index cards stashed away (I used to use them to study when I was in university ... I have a Masters in Business, did you know?)
Anyhow in the event that I did not have any existing index cards I was planning on cutting to size any other paper I had on hand (construction paper, card stock, old Larabar boxes, etc ...) OR possibly purchasing some recycled index cards such as these. I love the unbleached brown hue!!
What creative things are you doing this summer?
