I have many scraps and I wanted to slowly use them up somehow. I saw many tutorials online where people create a mosaic background with them. I wanted it a bit textured and a little raised in some spots. Therefore, I glued a lot of layers on some spots and one layer only on another. I used Golden Gel Medium and old scraps cut out into little squares and rectangles. I used a 3×3 inch wood canvas, a wood frame and wooden butterflies that I painted black and then used Faber Castel Gelatos in gold color to give it a wood-like look.
