Counterfeit kit scarf challenge.

First here is my favourite scarf.I photographed it on my gold blanket so the colours stand out.
It is silk hand dyed in stripes with a brown marbling overlay.I didn't iron it cause I love the crinkled look of it.
For my layout I first gathered up scraps of papers in colours featured in the scarf.Mainly pinks and greens with a touch of dark aqua/turquoise.
The background paper was lime green/pink floral.(see on the right of this picture).
I arranged these scraps in layers to form an overlapping mat for the photo of a waratah.
After taping & stapling them in place,I put my title across and outlined in black.

Then I found a branch shaped chippy and misted over it on the layout in 2 different places . I then adhered the same branch to the layout.
The end result,to me,looks like the scarf.
 I hope you like this,it is a bit experimental!
