Shakin' It Loose


After last week's task at organization I found it difficult to switch gears this week. Once I get into the left side of my brain I find it difficult to leave. In addition to organizing I was also working on taxes so I was very far into the left side. So, in order to ease myself back into the right side of my brain I decided to make another scrap collage. To me, it's a lot like shaking out after an intense physical exercise session.

As you know, this is not a finished piece of work. This will later be cut up and used in future collage pieces. But what makes it so wonderful to work on when I'm transitioning is that I can work intuitively. Although I know all the color "rules", color is my strength and I don't have to think a lot about it when I'm working. I just dove into my box of scraps and pulled up pieces whose colors appealed to me and went together.

Composition and making strong focal points is where I tend to be weaker and with this exercise I don't have to think about those things. Color, only, and little bit of balance. Now I'm ready to rock and roll!
