The Index Card Idea Zine

This is a special issue of the Zine dedicated to small format index card artwork. [At a special sale price through July 15].

The images in the Zine were selected from the 1,200+ handmade 3x5" index cards that I have created since 2011. This is a project that I've wanted to bring to fruition for a year, to gather a hundred specific ideas/techniques that you can do with an index card. A spark to show you just a small subset of possibilities. Every person, every artist, writer, fiber artist, typographer, doodler, painter, poet.... will put a different spin on their work. It was enlightening to go through my files from 2011 to the present. And yet, when I had the hundred, I realized that there were always more, constantly more, and the limit is only our imagination.

Each week... fresh ideas surface for my own index card work for the 2015 challenge, after noticing the juxtaposition of a few things in my workspace. That's how it all comes about, from sparks and inklings and inputs. From musings and random interactions in everyday life, from everything you see and feel. All in all it's about being open to possibilities. The ideas can be a prompt or SPARK for any of your creative work - on an index card or in  your art journal - or an artist trading card - or mail art.
