Creative momentum is a super good thing. Take advantage of it.
▶︎ Adding art to your life can literally alter your perspective on every little thing. It can launch you on a fresh tangent, teach you about yourself, build confidence, and bring new meaning to your days.
▶︎ You choose what stuff you do. Paint! Embroider! Write! Photograph! Sculpt!
▶︎ You don't know what is ahead on your creative path. The important thing is to keep at it! Keep trying, keep experimenting, keep practicing. Keep refining your techniques.
For the index-card-a-day challengers...
▶︎ Index-card-a-day is a long, deceptively simple challenge. I say that often... deceptively simple... and I am happy that the folks finishing the challenge can now visualize what I mean. The experience is surprising. It is intense. And often surreal.
▶︎ You've already got creative INERTIA in your corner, so keep arting.
▶︎ August 1. Art Journaling Tangents & Tactics begins. This is a new weekly art journaling video tutorial series on Fridays for at minimum 5 weeks. The new series is free; donations are appreciated. I've received seven donations thus far. I appreciate your taking the time to show your support, inspire me to continue and help with the expenses of running the blog.
▶︎ August 1. We will start 61 Daily Paper Prompts in the DY FB group. The prompts were fully refreshed in September 2013. Designed for beginning artists & folks rolling off ICAD. This is a great way to continue your daily art habit... the open-ended prompts can be done with index cards or larger pieces of paper.
▶︎ September 1. The Fun Color Challenge begins. More details coming soon! This challenge will be bright & colorful & full of *acrylic* paint.
Side note about the Facebook group...
▶︎ If you found the ICAD Facebook group a supportive & positive space for the past 60+ days, you'll love the Daisy Yellow FB group just as much! It is my "year-round" art group at Facebook. The group provides a space for what some call "community," a space to discuss and share art journal pages, doodles, sketches, mixed media art, artist trading cards, etc. Thank you to Patricia Dattoma of Magenta Matters for her generous help in moderating the group.
