Usually when I work on a collage, I spend most of my time agonizing over the elements I need- would this paper work? How big should it be? Does this cover too much? Do I want to leave some negative space? Should I add any embellishments? And the list of questions goes on.... sometimes it takes me days to complete a small collage because I'll feel stuck and have to let it sit for awhile so I can come back to it fresh.
With this collage, I promised myself I was going to work with whatever I grabbed first, no matter what. Because of that, I finished this collage pretty fast- the only waiting I did was for the gel medium I used to adhere everything to dry.
Oh, and don't you just love what google did to this photo of mine? Their Auto Awesome photos that are made automatically can be a little annoying and weird at times, but I absolutely fell in love with this one.
