The Official Guide to Daisy Yellow Creative Prompts

"Our time is so short
and the future so terrifyingly long.
Through the art of brush, pen, and lens...
we possess a swift and sure means
of touching the conscience
and clearing the vision."
Ansel Adams

Spending time on creative stuff is one of the keys to happiness. Most of my creative time is spent on art journaling, drawing mandalas, doodling & photography. You might spend time embroidering, watercoloring, sculpting, writing, creating crossword puzzles, gardening, nature journaling, quilting or developing the perfect spinach quiche.

I facilitate the index-card-a-day {ICAD} challenge each June & July since 2011. In 2014 over 1200 folks participated in the Facebook group and hundreds of folks participated via Flickr. The challenge is to create one index card per day for 61 days; more info in the ICAD FAQ. We start again June 1, 2015.

Thanks so much for this post - led me back to your Kick Start your Journal entries. I am really loving those as I am trying to expand my range in my visual journals. Not sure how I found you but sure glad I did. I really enjoy your blog!

Unfortunately I do not have time to "hop" through all of these right now, but can't wait till I do!!! Your blog is such a deep source of inspiration!

Kimber, I look forward to hearing about your experience with the kick-start prompts! If you create something from a prompt, let me know!

Tiffani, I see the prompts as something to come back to when you need to try something new, a creative spark, etc.... perfect for summer!

Hi Tammy.....I can't thank you enough for your inspiration. I found your blog this past spring and have been doing the ICAD and the museum workshop. I have been doing something creative every day for about 3 months now and it has really helped me get through a bit of a stressful summer ( caring for an aging parent). All my life I've felt like I was an artist that couldn't get out. I've taken zillions of drawing and painting classes but always dropped out because I didn't progress at the rate that the class was going... I couldn't get it right. Following your blog and prompts and challenges, I have learned that the only "right" way to do art is my way and that's the right way for me. Over the past several months I've been able to share my art with the Flickr group (which is a big deal for me) and friends and I really like what I'm creating. Thank you so much for helping me find my creative voice!
The internet is a wonderful thing.

Lee, Your comment just shot me into the most wonderful of moods! I am so, so happy that you have found your voice, a way to create in your own unique way. If the Daisy Yellow prompts and challenges have contributed, I am thrilled beyond words. So thank you for the BIG smile today. I'm going to read this to my kiddos.
