|June 3-6 Index Card of the Day|
So, ICAD is upon us! And as I am currently taking SEVERAL classes at 21 Secrets I thought I'd Combine some techniques for my Daily Indexy Goodness...
But no matter what I pulled out...I just wanted to GRUNGE it up...black spots, smudges of ink..geometric backgrounds...overall Messiness...sometimes you just need your Art to Reflect your Life...and mine is often MESSY. Things aren't always pretty, perfect, matchy or 'Easily Catagorized'...thus these Four Cards.
Right now I am working on "Structuring my Creativity"...I know it seems like a very "Oxy-moronic" statement, but as I am moving in the direction of Art and Creativity as a Bigger, more Central part of my life, the inevitable 'S' word...Structure....does come up!
Actually, I am a STRUCTURE Nut! I love organizing, catagorizing, scheduling and listing....but I am still one of the Messiest Artists around. It's a strange Juxtaposition and I think it shows in a lot of my Art Stuff.
