Let The Music Play

Evening Everyone

Here's definitely something I made earlier, and then forgot to make a post about it.
It is a canvas board altered to fulfil the theme for the UKPC June Swap - music. I did write down all the materials used at the time but it's lost ... not surprising considering the amount of stuff there is in this craft room, sigh! 

Anyway, senior moments permitting, I'll do my best to remember.

I began by sponging Gentle Blends in pink, green and yellow on to the board, blending the colours in until I was happy with them.

Next, I dabbed silver Buff-It randomly over the surface and then stamped an Inkylicious music script stamp in black ink. Or was it the other way round? I can't recall! However, I do remember that to get the random effect I didn't put the stamp on a block but just held it in my hand and stamped here and there until I was happy with it.

The tag was made with white card, sponged with the same Gentle Blends and edged with Pebeo silver wax. The phonograph stamp is from the Artemio Office set. The embossed corners are from a set of craft stickers from Craft Works, they've been given the silver wax treatment too. Once finished I layered the tag on to deep pink card before attaching it to the canvas board.

The title was typed on to white card on my vintage typewriter, then cut out and edged with black ink.

I used shrink plastic and the phonograph stamp to create this little embellishment. All the lace, ribbon, spider web trim, twine and the button were found and liberated from my stash.

I'm amazed! I don't think I've done too badly remembering after all ... there's hope for me yet :)

Hope you've had as good a day as I've had and I wish you a good day tomorrow.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Happy Crafting,

  5. Good Morning Elizabeth, (morning here for me : ) )
    A wonderful job on your canvas, great theme.

    I did see your other posts too. What a beautiful flowers in you "vase on Monday". Thank you for sharing your garden with us too. The bees look very happy in your garden. I have seen in a seed catalogue a packet for bees too. They have different one for birds and butterflies. I may give one of them a try. It is always fun to see what you get.
    Happy crafting and gardening.
