Music Inspired Canvas

Music Challenge – Judy Everett

With Music being the theme for the May Challenge over at the Frillie and Funky blog, it was a chance to use some of the vintage sheet music I acquired at an estate auction last year. I used the cover from a Barber Shop Quartet song book as my inspiration for colors and theme. I used the sheet music to create a collaged background and to cut the flowers. I created the flowers using the Tattered Florals XL die from Tim Holtz. I used a couple of flowers from Prima Manufacturing to round out the group of flowers.

I used a combination of Lindy’s Stamp Gang color sprays to color the flowers and background. Color sprays make it so much easier to coordinate and create a color palette. I really don’t know what I would do without color sprays.

I’m entering this creation in Frilly and Funkie’s Sound of Music inspired challenge.

    Hi Judy,

    Your card is sensational! What a wonderful background you have created. I love the texture and design of it. And how fun that you were able to use vintage sheet music. The barbershop quartet is a great theme and your lovely flowers are the perfect finishing touch. So happy to have you playing with us over at Frilly and Funkie again this week!
