Do It Yourself : Collage Cards

This project required me to step a bit outside my comfort zone. While I live (and design) by the rules of simplicity, that doesn't mean I don't love and appreciate more eclectic styles as well. So I forced myself to let go of my rigidness and go with the flow and just see what happens. I dug out some catalogs from the recycling bin and went to work with my exact-o knife and glue stick. It was very freeing to be able to let my simplicity guard down and I enjoyed the process. I am even happy with the outcome (which is a rarity in my non-simplistic designs!) I guess the lesson I learned here was to keep trying new things and never to limit yourself to what you already know.

I love collage art! Your design came out beautifully... it's so vibrant and has great juxtaposition. I have to say, whenever I come to your site, I get filled with smiles and creative inspiration! Your pictures are all so lovely, and you always have something clever to write about.
