The daily card, week 12

I feel like this week is more "autobiographical" than many- or at least more drawn from what was going on in my life those days. I doubt that in 20 years I'll look back at these and remember the events and thoughts that inspired them, but I like that I've captured little snippets of things going through my head- which is probably more evocative than a detailed account of my daily life would be anyway.

I can't remember if I've written about it before, but the daily card project is one piece of what I think of as a daily creative trifecta. In addition to making a card every day, I'm also aiming to take a photo and to write a line in a line-a-day journal. I think they all complement each other nicely. Maybe if I put the photo/journaling/card for each day side-by-side someplace, it would result in a fuller picture for posterity - at the moment you'd have to cross-reference three different spaces - but I like that I'm guaranteed to document at least a bit of my day in three media.

The top-left card, which was pulled together a bit randomly, is what inspired one of my favorite art journaling spreads so far. I hoped that this small-scale project would generate ideas for larger-scale ones so I'm glad that the wheels are turning in that direction.

And sorry for the weird lighting in this one (and, truth be told, on many of these daily card posts). I never knew it could be so hard to get a decent photo of paper products against a white background until I started blogging.
