But unless I'm struggling with a project, I don't do a lot of active thinking when I scrap. I think that's why I can listen to the t.v. or an audio book and not miss a word. And yet I get compliments on my work all the time. My dad says I subconsciously just know what looks good and do it without actively thinking it. He analyzes everything I make and tells me what I did right artistically, and I always say, "I just put it together, I didn't think about the red contrast with the rest of the card, honestly." And it goes beyond color combinations which are pretty elementary in the art world as far as finding what looks good together when we're scrapbooking. My dad says the other elements of what I do show, and I have no idea why something looks good, I just keep working until it looks finished. This is what my dad calls my talent. Maybe it is...

Well I'm back to listening to my book. I can't write and listen at the same time, that talent is not one I possess :)
