Theme 10: Vibrant Chaotic Rainbows

How you choose to interpret the theme is completely up to you. It simply needs to be tasteful – no pornography or messages of hate here. When you sit down to create, you cannot think about how people will or will not receive your work. You are required to simply enjoy the act of creating. Please see the bottom of this post for how to submit a response.





"Paint a raindow inside of you, paint a rainbow, let your smile shine through. When it's cold and gray, push the clouds away, paint a rainbow in your heart." ~Author Unknown





“We live in a rainbow of chaos.” ~ Paul Cezanne





“Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.” - Douglas Pagels



Important Guidelines



The work submitted must be something you have created and/or worked on between the time the theme was revealed and the Thursday unveiling. Please submit your response to Natasha@creativenachos.com no later than end of day Wednesday, March 18th if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, March 19th. OR send me a link to your response to include in the comments section of the post.

With your response please include:

1. Your name - either first name, shop name or both.

2. The name of your piece (if you choose to give it one)

3. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything

4. Two photos of your piece or of each of the pieces (3x5 or 4x6 and 72dpi or a max of 96dpi - if you need any help with that please don't worry I'd be happy to help!)

Most importantly, let your imagination run, leap and play! Let yourself fill with colorful thoughts and then let those thoughts run free! Have fun!!!

Chaos, panic, depravity...rainbows.
Oh..wait... I think I have an idea!

Natasha said...

SalvagedExpression - YAY!! I'm so excited...personally I just want to play and play with color and see what happens!!!!! Get messy and play YAY!!!

SalvagedExpression said...

Yep this theme says finger paint all over it. Of course I don't have those handy but I'm thinking something messy and colorful none the less!

jodi said...

Sarah said...

Rainbows! Yay!

j.US.t chatter said...

Marja said...

Rainbows and chaos? Awesome! :) You come up with the best themes, Natasha. I have something brewing for this...I hope I can complete it in time.

Sherry said...

This one is going to be challenging for someone who works with sterling silver, but I think I might have an idea or two!!
Thanks Natasha! Love your blog!!

Meekiyu said...

sounds very confusing and intriguing... hmmm...

alwaysadorable said...

Absolutely! Oh so many ideas and new techniques I want to try! I don't know if I will be able to wait till next Thursday for this one! :)

Janie

mkcphotography said...

and i thought "safari" was a challenge, lol! ok, natasha - i'm off...i know the inspiration will hit me at some point ;-P

aquamaureen said...

Oh me oh my . . . another explosion of ideas . . . "vibrant" and "rainbow"--two of my favorite thoughts--I'm already all over those. "Chaotic"--in relation to the other two words . . it's calling out to me to LET GO of preconceived ideas and connections. To step away from the usual, the safe--and perhaps, in the chaos of letting go, I might stumble across a bit of cosmos.

lifeartdesigns said...

Hey Sherry...
Can you make a rainbow on silver with patina??? Running off before something gets thrown...:) Got to work on my own ideas!
Janie

Natasha said...

jodi - I CANNOT wait to see what those possibilities turn into!!

Janie - great minds, great minds hahaha...I cannot wait to see what you create!!! The thing about rainbows is that you can use all the oclors or mix and match some or use one...as Jodi said...the possilities


Sarah - I second your YAY!!

j.US.t chatter - thank you, thank you, thank you....I'm going to check out your blog AND loving that you are already pondering the new theme...another YAY!!

Sherry - the Sweet Treat LOVES you too...I'm so digging the way you are going to rise to this challenge...Thursday hurry up and get here!!

Meekiyu - yes...I like a little mixture of those two things ...it means I have to totally let my mind and all restraint fly out the window and isn't that when the best things take shape?? Hoping you will play too!!!

mkcphotography - and when it does I know it will be magic in your hands yet again Michelle...can't wait....can't wait

beckyrose said...

hmmm... seeing as I pretty much only work in vibrant colors this doesn't seem like too much of a stretch for me :) But I haven't done a full out rainbow in a while!

meherio68 said...

I love this theme - it just came together like on its own ! It's a case of "I can't believe I didn't think of this before!" I really look forwarrd to seeing what everybody does with it...

Tart Deco said...

An idea just popped into my brain. If I can pull it off in time it will be awesome. So awesome I may have to keep it for myself... :):):)

PS I am glad it is spring break for me right now cause I'll need the extra time.

Cycle Girl said...

Oooh. I like this one. Had a hard time with the Safari theme...

Natasha said...

beckyrose - I love that despite the fact that you work in vibrant colors you found a way to challenge yourself...rock on!

meherio68 - I LOVE the fact that it seemed to come together on its own...now that's magic I can't wait to see!!!!!

Tart Deco - I'm SOOO glad it's Spring Break because you then have more time...ohhhhh I hope you can pull this off...I can't wait to see it ...soo exiting!!!!

Cycle Girl - YAY!! I'm so glad you are into this one....I really can't wait till Thursday WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!

giraffelabel said...

Natasha said...

giraffelabel - first I'm so sorry about the kids!! I hope that they feel better soon..sending healing hugs...and I LOVE the fact that you had a rainbow dream ..that rocks!! I hope you are able to bring something to life but if not believe me I understand...well wishes and rainbow cartwheels

lisianblue said...

Many many years ago, I saw a movie that had a song in it with a line that went something like this.............wish me a rainbow wherever you are...................I don't remember any of the other words anymore, so I make up my own and put that line in..............
many years ago, I had my palm read - a few years before I allowed myself to go to school and eventually study drawing and painting, but this lady told me that color was very important to me.............little did she know!
Natasha - I just love seeing your wonderful smile. Sending you wonderful rainbow hugs! hehe

Cidtalk said...

Rainbows mean color. Hmmmm if you have ever seen my drawings you will know that might be terrifying me at the moment:)

Natasha said...

Cidtalk - having seen your work, work that I love, I need you to know that comment made me laugh out loud! And yet I have this deep seated belief that you will create something unexpected, some comment on chaos and rainbows that I never knew existed...ever hopeful
