This morning I went in to school to do some magazine tears for my upcoming storyboard class. I had been feeling a little lost in the endeavor, because it was really difficult to find photos that were the style that I was going for and the same color palette. After some feedback from one of my teachers, I changed the way I was thinking about it and started tearing things that were the right color palette and general feeling, even if they weren't literal representations of what I want to design.
And all of a sudden, things started clicking. I looked for particular colors and color combinations, and I'm pretty lucky that bright colors have been trendy for the last few years, because I found not just one but a whole handful of tears that incorporated my colors.
Just for fun, I pulled some yarn in the colors that I'm thinking of. I haven't decided how many of these I'll actually use, but it was pretty cool to get a more cohesive idea of the elements I want to include on my storyboard.
And once again, my stash proves to be useful outside of its intended purpose. Hah!
