I’m participating this year in the ICAD (Index-Card-a-Day) Challenge. You can find all details HERE at Daisy Yellow. The bottom line is to create something every day on and index card for 61 days in a row. The theme for the first week was drawing and doodling. This was indeed a challenge for me but it became fun soon. I didn’t always use the optional prompts. Some of my cards are just black and white but a few are really colorful. Keep your sunglasses within reach :).
Prompt “Draw a Map”
I would have one more to show you but I couldn’t get a decent picture of it. Maybe my camera thought it was too colorful :). I’ll show you the card when I’m able to take a picture with another camera.
The theme for the second week was painting which was even more out of my comfort zone than drawing and doodling. I had bought a package of watercolors some years ago and the tubes had never seen sunlight since I had put them in a drawer back then. Now it was time to finally play with them. I predominantly painted the backgrounds and then added other techniques.
Prompt “Grapefruit & Cherry”
Prompt “Carrot & Lemon”. I used them as colors here but what you can’t see is, that I stamped the circles with pieces of carrots.
Prompt “Ginger & ?” Ginger is my background and parts of the frame. I hope you can solve that little picture puzzle for the second part of the prompt. If not, I’ve drawn really bad.
Prompt “Parsnip & Kiwi”. Kiwi is the frame color here.
Prompt “Blueberry & Plum”. While blueberry makes my background, I might have kind of cheated with the plum somehow :).
Prompt “Salt & Pepper”
It’s a fun challenge and you could still join in. I’m glad I especially gave doodling a try. I really like that.
I’ll be back soon with my entry for the “Summer of Color” challenge. At least I hope so because I haven’t even started yet.
Have a great Friday!
