Hello there. I'm Tammy Garcia and this is my space on the web! My goal is to inspire YOU to do more creative work, so I facilitate art journaling and creativity workshops where you can play, learn & explore! My artwork follows the tangents of my curiosity rather than a perfect storyline. I'm an art journalist and I love acrylics, gouache, collage, paper sewing and drawing intricate patterns and mandalas.

I founded the annual Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD} in 2011 and this summer will be the 7th year of the challenge! Get energized with the creative sparks in every issue of the Daisy Yellow Zine and also, I'm kind of addicted to devising creative prompts. Grab a blueberry scone and a mug of spearmint tea and wander around.

Art Journaling

I love everything about art journaling. Creating pages, exploring techniques, experimenting with acrylics & collage & lettering, all of it!  I do art every single day without fail... because I thrive on it.

Index-Card-a-Day Challenge

The 7th annual Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD} runs June 1 - July 31, 2017. I founded the challenge in 2011 to inspire creatives to add a tiny, approachable art project to each day. Thousands of people around the globe make an index card every day for 61 days. You've absolutely, positively got to join the fun!
