Oh...what to do with scraps. I had some deconstructive screen printed fabric that was going nowhere so I found some of the same color scraps and decided to put them together for a small piece.
I have lots of sheers, both purchased in the curtain fabric section of fabric stores along with many I've painted myself.
I like this effect....you can see the writing underneath but it doesn't jump out at you.The sheer image is also soft and adds a nice something.
The top section was next (left) and thought it needed a little zing also. Using the same sheer, I found a different area and pattern for the top. Being the same fabric, they worked well together.
Next I needed to trim off the left side and after previewing several color choices, decided on an olive green over the brown.
which worked well I thought.
