The Index Card a Day Challenge started on June 1st, but I didn't read about it till about a week into in. You could start anytime but by at least the 16th. I bought cheap index cards. I haven't bought index cards of any kind for at least 10 years. I was really disappointed with the quality of these "cards". I don't know how they can even call them cards, as they are more like text weight paper. I thought, oh well, I will paint on them, gesso them, etc. they will be fine. NOT SO It was very irritating to me. I thought I'd just buy some more. Well, everywhere I checked seemed to have the same brand, or at least the same weight. Do you think I could find some "vintage" ones in this house that has more paper and cardstock than a paper factory??? Nope. So anyhow, I decided that I'd go ahead and accept not only the challenge to make one every day, but to deal with these crappy cards and make them work! HaHa..I'll see how it goes.
Trying to prepare some backgrounds in advance. Very absorbent and they curled.
My very first one.
This one I did in the car on the drive to Dallas. No, I wasn't the one driving, and it didn't take me the entire drive to do it.
Day 2, a little sketch in the hotel.
