Making Shabby Music and searching for a Star

Lets get Shabby is going all mu-sic-al on us this month (said with a Glee style emphasis on the "cal" bit!!)

We want to see some music notes on your project, whether it be punching, stamping or musical style papers from manufacturers or vintage music sheet finds.

Sing with all your Heart

I had been meaning to scrap this photo for a while but forgot about it like you do.......and so it has eventually ended up in a deep canvas with music notes covering the four sides as well.

The patterned paper is from Prima courtesy of Happy Daze and I used the whole entire sheet!!

By carefully figuring out my corners I maximised the flowers and they bend around corners, the large rose at the front covers 2 sides and is also 3D at the top of it. Any spare scraps were torn into circles to make small roses.

The glittered spray is from Twiddleybitz and was a dream to paint. I added Glossy accents to the butterfly and edged it with gold dots, the same as the lettering.

I bought the French music sheets from Paper Paradise when it closed down.
Lets get Shabby are looking for new DT members to compliment the team...if you would like to enter please visit the blog and read the entry rules...and good luck!!

Love and microphones
