ICAD Day 2- The Rainbow Connection

Here’s my contribution for Day 2 of Daisy Yellow‘s Index-Card-A-Day Challenge. Some of the suggestions for prompts were rainbow colors, paisley, and Candy Land. I put all 3 together in this, even though I would have never thought to do so otherwise. (I guess that’s kind of the fun of the challenge!)

I decoupaged 4 Candy Land cards into kind of a rainbow shape and decoupaged cut paper with my quote on top. It’s from “The Rainbow Connection” song, one of my favorites. Then I drew paisley kinds of shapes around it with thin Sharpies. I’m more of a broad-strokes kind of drawer, to is was interesting for me to do all the detail in these. Some I like, some not so much… But it was an experiment. I do like all the colors and the shapes in this, even if the elements are pretty disparate.

I’ll add some of my other favorites from today when I’m not posting from my phone.

Thanks for looking!

Update-

As promised, here are some other resources for amazing ICAD images/artists:

WordPress, unfortunately, doesn’t seem to have many other bloggers posting about the ICAD Challenge so far this year (that I can find).  So, I’ve been spending tons of time on Daisy Yellow’s Facebook page dedicated to ICAD (https://www.facebook.com/groups/daisy.yellow.ICAD/?hc_location=stream) and I just found the Flickr group (http://www.flickr.com/groups/daisyyellow/)  So many talented people!

http://trashbubblesandlifeslittlebits.wordpress.com/2013/06/04/on-my-desk-mobile-desk/  – This blogger seems to be trying out the ICAD Challenge this year and has what looks like some really neat backgrounds for ICAD pieces.  And I love the trash (literally) to treasure theme to her blog.

    Love this idea! I have some small dividers from an old library card catalog that would be fun to use for this project.
    Also, thanks so much for visiting my blog!

    Glad to see you participating in icad, it is really a lot of fun and if you are like me it is hard to stop at one card per day sometimes! I love paisley, such a fun shape!
