Time for a cosmic reboot!
“You only grow by coming to the end of something and by beginning something else.”
John Irving, The World According to Garp
Your cards can be re-imagined not as perfection zones but rather figuring-out-spaces, magic-makers, playgrounds, 🎡 ferris wheels. Creative projects, some much needed YOU time.
But first, here are my cards for the first full week of the ICAD challenge! Seriously, it's like the twilight zone, I cannot believe that this is actually YEAR No. 7. We're having a veritable ICAD reunion. Thanks everyone for your positive feedback and for playing along with this craziness, the traditions, the camaraderie. You guys are wickedly wonderful.
Time for a cosmic reboot 🕊🌱🌿
Diving in feet first this 7th Index-Card-a-Day season, with just a fragment of a thread of a plan. For the first week, I challenged myself to match art + prompt + music which has been a fun experience. Most of you know that I usually don't follow the prompts, so this stretch felt good.
ICAD #1: [Tequila] Sunrise in gouache on 3x5" index card. Music match: Tequila Sunrise by The Eagles.
ICAD #2: Lost and/or Found in acrylic on 3x5" index card. Music match: Abandoned Luncheonette by Hall & Oates.
From the warm-ups... a one staple collage on 3x5" index card.
ICAD #3: Vintage one-staple collage on 3x5" index card. Music match: Don Maclean's American Pie.
ICAD #4: Lavender in pencil and gouache on 3x5" index card. Music match: Lighter Shade of Pale by Procol Harem.
ICAD #5: Kawaii/Cute, collage on 3x5" index card. Music match: That's Not My Name by the Ting Tings.
