I’ve written in the past blogs that I do Project Life (https://beckyhiggins.com/about-project-life/) and, although there are a lot of products available, I choose to do my own filler and journaling cards. I do these because (1) I have way too much stuff already (2) I’d like to incorporate my art into our scrapbooks and (3) making the cards is a bonding activity with the kids.
I make most of these cards on index cards. I carry blank index cards with me all the time so whenever I have free time (scheduled or otherwise), I get to doodle, ink or paint the cards.
Here are some of my cards:
Sometimes, I intentionally leave space for my kids to put in their own artwork or I paint their doodles or I doodle on their painting or I just let the kids doodle or paint on their own index cards.
Here are some samples of their index card art and our collaborative art:
My index card art collection is building up. Its time to catch up on my Project Life so I can include these in our scrapbooks already!
