A few extra notes of music...

Hello all!  I'm so glad you enjoyed my Stencil It altered journal cover - it's one of my favourite recent creations for sure.

It's the third Friday of our challenge month at A Vintage Journey, and in our new itinerary that means it's time for the host to add a little something extra to the trip.  It might be a tutorial for their challenge project, or an extra little bit of inspiration.  I've gone for the latter, and here's a little sneak peek...


I'll admit I was on autopilot writing the post for my Under the Greenwood Tree page spread, and I covered the step-by-step here at Words and Pictures, so I really had no choice about going for the extra inspiration version.  To be honest, though, it's probably what I'd have chosen to do in any case, if I had remembered earlier!

The theme I'm hosting is Words and Music, so you'll find a few extra notes of music if you hop over and take a look.  We hope you'll come and sing along with us at A Vintage Journey this month.

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
