Recycling + Mixed Media

Hello everyone!
Actually I just wanted to make my crafting table accessible.....
There are a lot of things lying around because it is very difficult for me to throw away even the smallest piece of paper, not to mention a punched piece or a "failed background", and as soon as I had the first remains in my hand, I got stuck! Instead of tidying up, I put things back and forth, on top of each other and next to each other...

...and little by little something like a picture came into being! 
I couldn't help it, and I was holding on to it obsessively! 
This is the result! 
...I am really very surprised by myself, but I love what came out! ;)

The background is actually a failed "in quotes" background that was originally intended for this card. - Ah, too bad I didn't take a picture before using it! But if you look closely, you can still see two lines of the outline of the mask's face, just between the branch and the left wing of the butterfly. - The rest is covered by the scalloped circle.
The butterfly and the little sentiment just above it - I had one of each left - are from this card swapping project.
The balloon, too, is a "more or less" failure! It was originally supposed to be on this card.
The flower behind the circles, it goes back a long way! It is printed on tracing paper, but was too large to have been used for the project at the time.
As for the circles, they're one of the remnants in creating this card.
The clef and the note are cut-outs that have got stuck in a stencil. 
The frog came from this card, I probably overdid it! Haha
I can't say for which projects the branch, the ladybugs and the strip with the writing were intended, but hey, you can't remember everything! 

Well, that was the story of that card, a somewhat unusual style, I must say, but I hope you like it!
