Mojo - how does mine work?

It was Presidents Day yesterday so I stayed home with the kids. I was looking around to see if there were any challenges I wanted to participate in and saw that Mojo Monday's sketch was super cute. As I was trying to decide what I wanted to use I got distracted...who doesn't right? Anyway my papers were just a mess and I have so many almost gone paper packs that just need to be used up or organized in such a way that I use them. I thought about just giving it all to my friends Natalie (she loves it when I do a stash cleanse) but so many of the packs that I have I really love so I decided to pull all the big and little scraps. 

I know what a mess right?

 
I cut the pattern paper down to 6" and kept most of the stuff that was smaller than that. If a piece of card stock could turn into a card I left it intact. If It couldn't then I cut that down into 6" pieces as well. Some of those ended up as 2" x 6" or maybe 4" x 4" just to give you an idea.

Here is how it looks now. I love it!!


From there I pulled my paper that I wanted to work with

Decided what colors to use on my image

and wala the finished product.
