Every day art: a rainbow in my art journal

The center drawing here is an index card from Tammy’s index card challenge. We (the kids and I) did several of these through the summer and never blogged them; now they’re being recycled as fun journal fodder. I promise to get some paint on soon, but we’ve just finished a round with a stomach bug so there’s some catching up to be done.

This is what I like about calling this little project “every day art” instead of “art every day.” It’s not about the pressure of producing every day, it’s about the joy of embracing art as a regular part of my everyday. Sharing little bits of recycled art journaling is about my speed for a few days. More soon! xo
