Collage thoughts

These are little business cards.
 I've been thinking a lot about collage and what is acceptable to use in them and what isn't. I've collected lots of torn bits from magazines over the years which I incorporate but now I'm wondering if I should stop doing this and rely on bits I've created from scratch. Using drawings instead. I'll give that a try.

Meanwhile I've been making a lot of these individual business cards. Starting with a sheet of A4 copy paper I glue on torn up painted papers then add more paint on top and around the pieces. Then I cut up the sheet into small rectangles and embellish each individually with little pictures, old stamps, glitter pen etc.
 Warning: it's highly addictive!
