Time for a 4-Part Index Card Series

"Produce as many ideas as possible. 
Try to produce unlikely ideas."
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Are you scheming and strategizing a way to catch up with the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge? Granted, catching up is not required. Granted, the idea is truly a card each day. But... still. The reality is that sometimes we face obstacles, like your camel gets a bad case of the gleeks, or you get stuck waking up to "I Got You Babe" in Punxsutawney for 10+ years, or a weekend Lord of the Rings marathon {with Russian audio and Italian subtitles}. 

Sometimes an interconnected series is in order. This is a fab way to play catch-up on your missing index cards for the ICAD Challenge. Make a set of four cards that "go" together. You can, of course, extrapolate. 

There are an infinite number of ways that you could create cards that are related or link together. Like connecting flaps. A fold-o-matic thingy. Doodles. A makeshift jigsaw puzzle. If you actually own spray paint protective gear, go outside and spray them. Or tape down four cards and draw/paint/ink something that interlinks or connects or otherwise brings them together as one.

It's a mini-series. Like on TV. I put washi tape along the bottom of each card as a mask to leave a blank stripe at the bottom, but of course knowing the flimsiness of index cards, the washi tore off some of the card too. And that folks... is an experiment!

These four cards were created using a technique that's one of the BONUS sections in my Tiny Museum Workshop, using glaze and gouache.
