I'm working in my journal on a color lesson.
I've culled through a bunch of magazines I have and ripped out the photos/words I like. Now I'm going to make full spread pages of color, to see where my heart takes me. I use this lesson a lot with adults who tell me they can't collage. It's time to revisit it for myself. The important part of this lesson is to use only what you really like, don't settle for something because it is in front of you. Images by someone else release your fear of creating something and allow you to just look and say "hey, I like that".
1. Don't "settle". If you don't like it, don't use it.
2. No sissors, rip only.
3. Glue it to the page. It's your page, place it how you want. Over lap, rip to fit, cover up what bugs you.
4. Work with one color at a time. This helps you to "see and focus".
