Craft-Room, Spring

Writing this posting The Carpenters song 'Sing, Sing a Song' is playing in my head! Guess I'll be hearing it for the rest of the day wonder if the words will become clearer.

This time at Craft-Room Challenge we have the theme of Music chosen for us by Hazel.   A perfect theme for the time of year and with the glorious spring we are enjoying here in GB.   Our sponsor this fortnight is Tando Creative, my favourite chipboard.

Certainly put the chippie to the test with this hanging.    The inner's from the Gothic Layered Arch Frame provided the bases.   The bare board elements were given a single layer of white gesso, on the base the Music Score mask was used with soft green and blue ink lightly brushed over.   The bases were then run through the big shot with a music score embossing folder after which the embossing was highlighted with further inks.   Next holes were punched in them eyelets fitted and chain to link them.  Distress glitter added and finally they were set aside while the toppers were prepared and glued on.

The musical instruments have been coloured with Starburst Sprays and then stamped with a random design and flitter glue over which was scattered gliding leaf.    The letters were coloured with Art Quest shimmer paints, the capital M has been stamped and heat embossed with the another music score image.

Those base's took quite a bashing but they look fantastic don't you think.   You do not have to use Tando in your Music themed project but the lucky randomly drawn winner will win both Chippie and a  Masks as the prize.
