Create and Share Journal:  Clean Desk Squares
I love this technique.  It is so simple.  You can use the itty-bittiest scraps which helps you clean up your desk.  It doesn't even require a lot of thought.  Perhaps, it is the most perfect technique I have found yet.
Some folks says it reminds them of inches or serendipity squares.  It reminds me of patch work quilts.
I scavenged all the bits on this page from stuff that had gathered on my desk.  The background is the left over of an old encyclopedia page that I had already cut up for the illustration.  I ended up coating most of the squares with gel medium to add some color depth. 
I am especially proud of the flower square on the bottom row.  The center is a bit of lace I cut out.  It looks really cool in person.
I like how this one turned out.

WOW, Kay, this is amazing... I absolutely love it. Now I'm thinking I could do this too - may have to join in on this one.
