Why do I ask?
Well Dina asked the question...
When you choose an image, do you consciously think of what it means to you, or do...and I think it is both!!!
you just choose it by instinct or impulse?
Maybe my instinct or impulse influences my consciousness!
And then I got to wondering if this has to do with left-brained or right-brained stuff.
Maybe it has nothing to do with sides of brain.
Maybe it has a lot to do with OCD?
Teal is my colour of the moment. Did I tell you that already?
Then I picked the colour that I liked the 'feeling' of as my collage bit.
The figure I have used quite a lot on my art journal pages lately, is me! Well, actually, it's not really me but it represents me.
And when I use it as a mask on a book I am fussy about what words are shown on the page. Cos I wouldn't want them to say something that I didn't want them to say. Not that any of you read them, eh?!
So here's a journal page.
The journaling is about being happy about my weightloss. You don't need to be able to read it :)
The red touch just does it for me.
So really, I've mixed up a bit of van Gogh and Picasso and you'd know what I was talking about if you were doing "Masterful" Art Journaling with Dina Wakley. :) And I've mixed up my instincts and impulses with my conscious decisions.
Left- or right-brained?
