Step Outside Your Box Saturday


Since we didn't have a Collage Play challenge last week, I opened the new elements this morning with special eagerness, and my new collage was finished in about an hour, record time for me. The challenge today at Step Outside Your Box Saturdays is "Emotion" In today's post the host discusses letting your emotions lead you and how pieces often come together more easily and quickly when we work in what she calls a "manic" state. Usually it takes me almost an entire day to put a collage together, but today I not only completed this collage, I also altered my own collage. Last Monday, Mandy at Mandy's Magical World of Art, described a process she uses for making backgrounds with nail enamel, and I was dying to try it. So, for the Saturday's Workout today, I've altered my own collage. I think I like my original better, but the altered page was a lot of fun to make. It was my first attempt to use Mandy's method, and so maybe, with practice, I'll be able to refine this technique.
