Altered Book, Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow

Hi! I'm Tammy. I'm a self-taught artist and I work in a lot of different mediums in an unstructured fashion... this space is about my creative experiments in art journaling, doodling, drawing patterns & mandalas, painting and sewing paper. You'll find lots of creative prompts, a Zine, prompt cards, interviews, tutorials and... well you might need to put your feet up and grab a cappuccino before jumping in. I've been doing art since 2007 and blogging since 2008.

To keep up with new blog posts, you can get new blog posts delivered to a feed reader or get them via email with RSS feeds

If you'd just like the big stuff, every so often, get the quite infrequent Daisy Yellow Newsletter which includes announcements like new issues of the Zine, new workshops, etc.
