Let’s have some cut and paste fun together, shall we?
My friend Tammy asked me to do a guest post on index cards for her annual summer challenge, ICAD: Index Card A Day last year, and then again this year! I said yes, brought out my scrap inbox of pretty papers and recorded a quick video to inspire you guys to do some cut-n-pastin’ of your own!
In the video you can watch how I pick out papers, and without any plan glue them down on the blank canvas of an index card! I go with green and pink, use some washi tape, some tissue paper and a lot of tiny pieces of left over collage material. I really like how the lines of these ordinary index cards peeks through. I think it gives this the perfect “everyday practice look”, the mundane transformed, daily life documented on a card.
Here are some details of today’s index card collage:
If you watch the video, I’d love to know what you think, or if you have any questions! Is it too long? I sped up some of the pasting to twice as fast as it is IRL, is it okay or would you prefer it normal speed? If you let me know what you like I can make better videos in the future…
