For some reason I got a wild hair and decided that I wanted to do some sort of creative/artsy/crafty challenge. As if I need more things to do. I feel like I spend a lot of time absorbing other people's creative/artsy/crafty works and adventures and not enough time making my own. There's a lot in my head that I can't seem to get out and I'm hoping that the good old concept of practice makes perfect applies here too.
I came up with many ideas for this challenge, but most of them were too inside my comfort zone. So, inspired by this artists tiny works of art and this artists numerous something every day for a year challenges, I came up with the idea to create a piece of art on on index card every day for an entire year.
At first I thought I would start on January 1, but that seemed a little too cliched. Also, I'm currently suffering from lack of general inspiration because it's chilly and dark and there's minimal snow (although it's coming this week I've been told). So I started on Sunday.
I certainly intend to do this every day for a whole year, but I'm also not going to beat myself up over it if I miss a day or it doesn't work out.
I chose index cards because they are small, cheap, and I feel like I can commit to the amount of time it will take to create a piece of art on one, whether that's five minutes or an hour will be up to me on any given day.
I didn't purchase any extra supplies for this other than some index cards and plastic box to put them in. I plan on only using what I have around and the only rule is that it has to be done on a daily basis. Other than that, there are no rules!
I created a new category (same as the title to this post) to tag any posts for this project. Time to get creative!
