Another creative challenge, and I had an idea, and this is the result.

Some time ago I broyght some colored bending pencils, and also saw these bright packet of colored sticks. They looked like toothpicks, but they have four sides square edges like a match.

I just jumbled them into a shallow container, to form a crazy mess like abstract design. I them put vaseline on my lens for a blurred effect, and started photogrphing some images.

This is the result.....

Reminds me of a toy I had as a child - Pick-up Stix. Great colors. The vaseline trick was a good idea - it gave a nice blur!

First glance I gave this a 5, but I'm upgrading to a 7, because this one stands out to me after scoring the whole challenge. I like the subtle blur on this and the colors are really nice, kinda like a soft abstract painting.
