And here's the basic idea what I'm doing with scraps and what they look like. Here're a couple of A4-size sheets, that were made "by the way" - from leftovers of papers, tiny scraps, some hand printed papers, tissue papers, paint leftovers and some hand made doodles. I've put some gesso to fix all the papers, so that they wouldn't lay around and I wouldn't have waste. Once dried, I've let them wait until I was working with paint and once I got there, those backgrounds have got a coat of paint left over. The initial idea was to make a garland, then I worked around them in PhotoShop and got this funny card that I'm sharing today.
