Warm Ups | the tabbed index dividers series

Last in the row of posts about index cards this year, I’m sharing the few index dividers I made first, before the real action in June got going: the “starters”, the warm ups, the fearful first experiments – but maybe, ideas for something else too. A series of… paintings? Word prompts? A small collection of ideas. And let me tell you, I really enjoyed making these, even though technically they’re not index cards but the tabbed divider cards that you keep in between the index cards to find…

ICAD – Joining the Index Card A Day Challenge

I’m joining ICAD again this year, are you? I hope so, because I’d love to see what you make. Last year I filled 61 index cards with abstract art and learned a lot about what I like to paint. ICAD stands for index-card-a-day, and I’m talking a bit about what it entails and showing my index cards from last year in the video below. ICAD is a free and easy-going art challenge where you can do anything you want on an index card. You will fill one index card each day for two months, or however…

Tips for incorporating a daily art project into each day

June 1-15 – iHanna's Blog

Like I mentioned a in the beginning of last month in June and July there is an art challenge going on that is called ICAD – Index-Card-a-Day. It’s low key and fun, and I’m making collages with stickers, cute images, washi tape, words, labels and this and that found in a little box of treassures on my table… A lot of people are filling an index card with some kind of artsy idea for ICAD, hosted by my friend Tammy of Daisy Yellow, and you can join too. Just start any time in July and try it…

Index Card Art | Layers and dots

The first week of ICAD/June is done, and I have seven freshly baked index cards to show for it. On the back of each one I do my daily journaling blurb, a little note about what I’ve done or thought about. But on the front, I’ve painted or done a playful little collage this week. June three – painted polka dots. Please DO waste art materials. Use paper. Empty paint jars. Deplete pens. If it’s teaching you stuff, it’s not being wasted.

7 art journaling materials [and why I love them]

Lists of art materials can be so much fun to explore — so I developed a list of go-to materials for art journaling, junk journaling, paper collage, and mixed media — and then I added a twist with insights about WHY I like each of the materials and notes about how I use them.

Riffing with tape and heavy body acrylic paint

There are always all sorts of experiments going on around here — currently lots of index cards, of course, an altered book in process, watercolor paper and other papers “disintegrating” with water + rusty objects in a box in the back yard [100+ Texas heat], and I’ll get to all of that in time, but t

Realizing that the longer I work with a particular pen or ink or brush or paint, the more in tune I am to what it will do in different circumstances! I bet others would call this some kind of woo woo phrase to make it sound other-worldly or mysterious? I feel like what is really happening is that th
