Daisy Yellow

Hi! I'm Tammy Garcia. At Daisy Yellow I share my art, insights, ideas, prompts, tutorials & challenges. I'm a self-taught mixed media artist with a background in quantitative analysis. My artwork has been published in the book A World of Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol; my articles & artwork have been published in various spots including Featuring Magazine and Create Mixed Media. I started doing art in 2007 as a creative diversion and launched Daisy Yellow in 2008. Six years ago, I founded the annual Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD} and I've been teaching online art journaling, painting & creativity workshops for five years. I love to write essays about the art of art journaling, and I'm quite enthusiastic about writing creative prompts.

The Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD} is an annual creative challenge June 1 - July 31. My goal is to inspire creative people to add more art to their day via a tiny, approachable art project. Create art on one index card per day for 61 days starting June 1, 2017.
