Collage and hand-lettered lyrics in altered book by Tammy Garcia #alteredbook #handlettering #collage #artjournal

Howdy. I'm Tammy.

Here’s what I do: create mixed media art at the intersection of exploration + curiosity. For me, it’s about the process rather than the finished work. I know that in time, and with lots of practice, that end result will get better and better. And here’s the thing: life is better with art than without.

I teach art journaling and creativity workshops to inspire YOU to add more creative work to each day. These online experiences are playful + psychedelic + otherwise groovy. 

If you like to zoom out the lens and contemplate creativity and the creative process… and you love drawing and art journaling… and want to incorporate more art into your life? Go grab a Daisy Yellow Zine and brew a mug of Earl Grey and enjoy!

Each June + July since 2011, I have facilitated the annual Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD}. The 9th annual creative community challenge will run June 1 - July 31, 2019. The goal is to do a tiny, approachable creative project each day... on an index card! Yup! Thousands of people around the globe make an index card every day for 61 days. You've absolutely, positively got to join the fun!

My work has been published in print in the book A World of Artist Journal Pages, by Dawn DeVries Sokol [2015], and in Featuring Magazine, a print magazine published in Amsterdam, Featured Blogger in Issue #2, Article: Creative Inspiration in Issue #4 [2012-2013].

You can find interviews & podcasts scattered about, including: Creativity Matters Podcast Episode #189: The Raven,[2016], Dirty Footprints Studio; 21 Secrets Conversations with Connie Solera [2015], and a Bonus interview from A World of Artist Journal Pages, Dawn DeVries Sokol [2015], Creative Living Podcast with Jamie Ridler [2014]. I also wrote a series of articles for Create Mixed Media, including Journal Fresh [2011].

Daisy Yellow is a labor of love, a collection of inspiration and positivity built over the past 11 years and going strong. I hope that this brings value to YOU as a creative person. Please know that much as I wish it could be, it is not free to keep Daisy Yellow spinning along.

Behind-the-scenes, I’m juggling creative work, nurturing the content, creating resources, and reference materials to help you on YOUR journey. I also facilitate the [free] annual 61-day Index-Card-a-Day Challenge. All with no advertising and no paid promotional content. Your contribution in any amount helps me offset the expenses of creating and sharing tutorials, tips, ideas, prompts, and challenges.

Thank you in advance for your support. Your purchase of a Daisy Yellow Zine or tutorial pack is so very appreciated. If you wish to contribute directly, there are several options:

a) Add a contribution through the Daisy Yellow Tip Jar - this goes directly to PayPal where you can purchase via PayPal or credit card.

b) Add a contribution via Ko-Fi which goes through PayPal as well. You can purchase Ko-Fi [get it, coffee 🧡] in $3 increments.


An additional way to support my work is to use the links to Amazon for things like books and art materials. Through these affiliate links you’ll pay no extra and I’ll receive a tiny percentage commission. Over the years that amounts to just $30/month, so it does not offset much of the site expenses.
