I was inspired by the Script, and sheet music, and flowers, and the two pastel colours of mint green and pinky/peach.
I started with a collage background of some torn sheet music and an old book page, then gessoed over the top of them. I then sprayed two different colours of Heidi Swapp Colorshine over that and when dry, I stamped a Newsprint background and Music stamp, both from Kaszazz. I had only the one piece of old sheet music paper which was given to me by one of my Art Journal students. How cool! I used a large strip for the banner and then placed some washi tape and some Amy Tangerine paper for another banner.
I love doilies, and this one was just what I needed to break up the colours. I got out my Kaszazz Ezy Press and die cut some love hearts, from the Dear Lizzy music paper and for my photo and photo mat. There's a cute little transparency piece with gold dots on it in there, that came in a pocket letter swap, love all the bits I have collected from my pals!!!
I jazzed up some paper flowers with Color Shine and the Newsprint stamp, joined 3 together with a cute Basic Grey brad. All the other flowers were re-coloured with Color shine.
My wood veneers are from Merci and Stampin Up, enamel dots from Francheville and the Thickers are Amy Tangerine!
I finished off with some cute little, white embossed music notes, and went around the edges of my page with some Colourbox fluid chalk ink. I'm happy to say I dug deep into some old stash for this challenge, the Dear Lizzy paper, the little black and white border stickers, from Cloud 9 I think, and the brads, all go back a long time, feels good to do that!!!!
Thanks for looking! See you next time!!!
