S is for Serendipity
Topic: A to Z challenge round 3

Serendipity squares are tiny bits of collage that are created with leftover scraps from previous projects. I take a sheet of printed cardstock and sort through saved scraps to find ones that coordinate with the background colors.

I tear the scraps into small strips and chunks and then glue them randomly over the background until the original print is almost obscured. Finally, I use my papercutter to turn it into squares of between 2 centimeters up to 1 inch.

This is the pile of squares I ended up with this session:

I select three or four of them that have a similar look to them and use them together on a card front.

This time I placed them over a heart sticker and added a couple of pre-made butterfly embellishments.
