Altered Book, Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow

Hi! I'm Tammy. I'm a self-taught artist working in a bunch of mediums in an unstructured fashion... this space is about my creative experiments in art journaling, doodling, drawing patterns & mandalas, painting & sewing paper. At DY, you'll find creative prompts, Zines,  interviews, tutorials and...  well... grab a cappuccino before jumping in. I've been doing art since 2007 and blogging since 2008.
