Color the Emotion

Pick a few colors and create without stiffness.

Scrap Paper Collage

A scrap paper collage, a freeting card by Peony and Parakeet

I made a greeting card from the paper scraps that I have. I make my own papers that I use for collage art. And even the tiniest scraps are saved in a container that I call “The Treasure Box” with capital letters.

These scraps have practically no monetary value but still I treat them as they would cost a million. I have put a lot of time in creating each little scrap.

The scraps also have another property that I am fond of. They look ugly as individual scraps but are beautiful when they are combined together.

Many things in life are like that. Nothing particular when examined separately but spectacular and successful when they are seen in the big picture.
