Look what I discovered in my box of odds and ends the other day:
Oh, fun, I thought. Doodles on neon-colored index cards. I love index cards, and I love doodles. But then I flipped the cards over and found:
Folks who’ve taken Holly Lisle‘s How to Revise Your Novel course will recognize these as the color-coded scene cards from Lesson 10. Apparently, after I was done with the revision, I recycled them into ATCs. I love that the leftovers and discards from one creative project turned out to be the raw material for another.
Btw, there’s a lot more you can do with index cards besides turning them into artist trading cards. Check out my post, 9 Ways to Use Index Cards, for more ideas. Also, Tammy over at Daisy Yellow hosts ICAD (Index-Card-A-Day) to get those creative juices flowing.
What a great game of ‘snap’ you could have with doodle-on cards.
I went weak at the knees over at Daisy’s webpage. She has those wooden index card drawers which we used to have at work many years ago. And those little brass handles with a holder for the label. A work of art in itself.
Thanks Rabia for sharing – and a trip for me down memory lane 🙂
Glad you like them–and the trip down memory lane!
Love these! Now, that’s creative recycling!
They are so cute and pocket-sized. I could carry them around all day. 🙂
