Mojo kickstarted at LAST

Hi, I have been doing a few cards (see last post) in preparation for doing my nieces wedding invitations, trying to find my mojo. I feel like it is returning.
I did a split shift at work this week and had to come home for 3 1/2 hours. I saw some stuff involving collage on the net and thought I would channel Marcy, and voila! My first collage. I started with a 12x12 white cardstock sheet and just tore up stuff and stuck it down. I didn't think about it too much, just went for it. (Do they call that artistic freedom?)
I told myself if it sucked, it could go in the bin and nobody would know. BUT.......... I was so happy with the result. When the glue was dry, I cut the sheet up into the desired sizes and distressed and stamped some more until I was happy. This is the result. My gorgeous nephew's 30th birthday card. The party is tomorrow night, so will see if he likes it then.
BTW, thanks for all the comments. I can't believe anyone reads this besides Mum, and I so get a kick out of what you all write. Keep 'em coming.
Thanks for the inspiration Marcy, I have been stalking your blog NOT leaving comments LOL, but love your work.
Stay beautiful,
K xx
