This is our hash tag….to share our recipe card creations thru Social Media!

But before we get into that….what is the Recipe Card Project?

The Recipe Card Project started as another idea that swirled around in my head for a while…….and grew like a snowball rolling down a hill, larger and larger and larger it became. I actually had to sit down with a pen and paper in a quiet room and sort out what my purpose was and how this was going to work… let me explain a little about the idea and how it grew…..and then how it is going to work.

With a love of vintage, a love of recipes, a love of sentiment and a love of creating…. no surprise there I guess, I thought, why not share Art thru creating with vintage recipe cards.

When the idea was first shared on FaceBook ~ I received all kinds of comments on how ‘not to destroy Nana’s treasures’… me I am not asking you to do that, but simply to make a copy or hunt down forgotten recipe cards at Estate Sales….I found mine thru Etsy, no sentiment attached.

….and the snowball started to roll.

What about creating on blank recipe cards too?….heaven knows no-one uses those anymore.

oh’ and what about vintage cookbooks?….continuing to roll….and what about old appliance manuals?….and rolling…or plain paper or a blank journal?…..yes, the snowball is now monster size, can you picture The Snoopy gang hanging out of all ends of the snowball.

Oh my gosh….now what? How was I going to share this idea with my creative friends? ….Well a blog of course, and a pattern for sure, but how could we share instantly? This is where the hashtag comes in…..we can share thru ‘marking’ it with a hashtag (it is like a search engine on social media)……and the snowball rolls.

Then thinking….how can it be purposeful and interesting for you to create? How about using copies of treasured family recipe cards, or using the cookbooks like a journal….or even a blank journal to look back on. Ok, this was gonna be fun…..rolling along.

oh’...and a video too…..explaining bits and pieces of the project!….rolling.….Oh’ and how about a ‘Starving Artist’ sale!

~ And this is the Recipe Card Project ~

a place to share our creations thru Social Media, a place to learn thru the blog, patterns and videos, and a place to purchase originals.

My hopes are ~ this will bring you Joy thru sharing and creating. Making a gift, framing your work, creating a journal or working with vintage…..sharing with friends.

The images you are seeing here are the same design created on all kinds of fun surfaces! There is a vintage recipe card ~ coordinating the recipe with the subject matter of course, also blank ol’ recipe cards, pages from a appliance manual, blank painted paper and of course a vintage Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and Art Journal….waiting for the pages to be filled.

What fun surface will you be creating on?

Enjoy this quick video below on ‘Penciling over Acrylics’ ~ and techniques!

    I found the perfect surface for this project at Target in the dollar section. They are wooden recipe cards. Three different choices, pumpkin pie, apple pie and pecan pie. I bought 10 of them.
