This collage journal exercise will support you to play freely, using whatever you have on hand, without worrying about results.  This prompt also provides a written journal review process to support you to see the unconscious patterns in your creativity.

 

Materials

 

- Old drawings and paintings, rubbings, colored papers

 

- Magazine collage scraps, tissue paper

 

- Scissors and a glue stick

 

Method:

 

Loosening up Your Creativity

 

Collages that take very little thought, time or effort can evoke an unknown feeling, a new idea, or a fresh longing. Leftover collage scraps - colorful papers, magazine clippings, rubbings, words, old drawings and paintings - can be created into quick, experimental collages.
