I used to think that if I had the perfect studio with the newest supplies...well, then I could crank out some amazing art.
Now, I know better.
What it takes is me sitting down and making the art! I need to get my rear in gear and just get it done.
No excuses, as in "I had one awful day."
No, sit down, pull out the scrap box and just begin to move around the pieces.
Watch the magic happen, but it won't be what was in my head.
Nope. Somehow, something entirely different emerges.
These are the first two in a series of the ICAD project...an index card a day. (More to follow on that in a later post, but let's just say that it was all begun here at Daisy Yellow. Tammy has it right...sit down, make some art.
The two above include bits and pieces from my scrap box. Throw in some photographs and some drawings. Toss in copies of old journal pages. A touch of colored pencil, a stamp or two.
Fantastic art? Probably not, but fun. Colorful. Both make me happy.
No new supplies were harmed in the making of this art. To be honest, I have enough stuff to open a store. What I am saving it for, the good Lord knows.
More index cards will follow.
They won't always be collage...there will be painting, some sketching, some pattern making. Some will stink. Some will be cool.
No excuses. Perfect never happens.
Just start making art, okay?
