Nudge 6 is The 5 Minute Collage. This idea came from a friend a long time ago (thank you Robin). It is simple and a great starter exercise.
What you'll need:
An old magazineGlue Stick
Set your timer for 5 minutes. Take the old magazine and rip through it. Tear out pages that speak to you, working intuitively for about a minute and make a nice pile - 12-15 sheets. Now winnow down the 12-15 torn out pages. Look quickly at each page: what speaks to you? Glue 'em down. The idea is to work quickly to outpace the critic. Don't think. Tear and glue. Badaboom. Done.
Since I'll be in beautiful Washington State and computer-FREE next week, I'll give you nudge #7 right now, if you are game! You'll need gesso or white paint and a pencil. Paint loosely over your 5 minute collage with the paint and draw or write into the wet paint with your pencil.
I'll be back with loads of pics around Nov 7.
