I'm busy with fulfilling my side of the Pay It Forwards challenge. Why is it as soon as I know I'm making something for someone else I get crippled with indecision and self-doubt?! Anyway, I've made a start, but I do hope my brave 5 aren't expecting anything too spectacular!
While I was putting off making a start on the PIF things, I completed a couple of pages in my Collage Coterie altered book. They are a bit calmer than the previous couple of pages.

|Chemistry For Beginners|
In my GPCC Moleskine I did a double page spread which I want to do the opposite of 'Apportioning the Load', in which the eye is naturally drawn to the face of the gentleman.
In 'Travels From My Armchair' I wanted the eye to be drawn initially to the lady's focus, which is the brightly coloured parrots.
I've also started a teeny-tiny Moleskine book, which is only 6.5cm x 10.5cm. I had a few little bits and pieces (OK, lots of bits and pieces), generally too small for the larger collages. The theme of these mini collages is that each one will have a postage stamp in it. I'm not going to spend too long on these pages, so they're not as involved as others, but it's good to use up my scraps in a creative way. I really do save ALL the scraps!

Thank you for looking at my collages, I really appreciate your kind and encouraging comments.
