Yes, I do create things other than index card art (#ICAD2014). I vaguely remember doing art journal pages in the past, and mixed media paintings, and poetry, and photography. It just seems that I’ve been obsessed with art on little pieces of cardstock the last two months. The Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day challenge ends tomorrow and I have completed my last index card. So now what?
Well, for sure, I’ll be going back and creating art journal pages for the Journal52 weekly art journal challenge. That challenge is on week 30 now, and I am behind by 3 weeks or so. This past week I had a chance to catch up a bit and did two art journal pages, one I liked (below) and one I didn’t (not shown).
Starting on August 1st, I’ll also be doing a weekly art journal page as part of another Daisy Yellow challenge which includes watching a weekly technique video and creating our own version of the technique in our art journals. I do love learning about new art techniques. And I don’t feel the same pressure for this challenge as I did for the daily index card challenge so, with luck, I’ll do what I can when I feel like it.
Also starting in August, I want to participate in a monthly themed photography challenge. There’s not even a need to photograph anything if you choose not to. The administrator picks a theme and you pull together all the photos you have taken relevant to the theme. Once a month. I can do that. I think. I hope.
And, lest we forget, that still leaves me with lots of time to get back to creating my mixed media paintings. And writing poetry whenever the words come. And taking photos when the mood strikes. NO challenge. NO pressure. NO schedule.
Ah! That’s the way I like it!
