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 what you’re looking for. My tabs are a bit more sturdy, a lovely cream yellow and perfect to paint on. The only reason I didn’t use these all the time is because I didn’t have enough for two months…
As you can tell, the indexing letter at the top of the tab is the first letter in the random word I chose to write. The first one is Utmärkt (Excellent!), then Överallt (Everywhere) and C for…

One of my index cards was featured on Tammy’s blog, I also contributed to her Circle with a video. Plus, a few people just like Rebecca below, tagged me in their index cards on Facebook saying I inspired them! Love that feeling!
Here’s three of the tabbed index dividers up on the wall:
Wishing you all the best!
