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!



Beautiful! You created a fabulous backdrop to your card with lovely flowers. Gorgeous card. Thanks for playing along with us at the Frilly and Funkie challenge!


This is such a great canvas! I love the textured background and that incredible spray of handmade flowers. Incorporating the vintage sheet music is the icing on the cake! So glad you shared it with us at the Frilly and Funkie Sound of Music Challenge.


What a fabulous project! The texture, elements, and the vintage sheet music all combine into a work of art. Thank you so much for sharing your art with us at The Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
