For the Love of COLOR!!!

Sometimes I just need to smear paint on a piece of paper. Whatever color grabs my attention, no theme or prompt attempted. Just a squirt of color on each page and a credit card. Smooth it out until it's dry and move to the next color. Usually that works for 5-6 colors and then I stamp images or scribble, cut some paper, glue down text, rip elements, stencil or add modeling paste for texture and depth.
