I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

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.

Again ... another amazing background. Those coffee ring die cuts are wonderful. The black line doodle around the paper doll and tag edges were brilliant. They really grounded everything against the musical score. Now must eat lunch and go play in my own paints :) Will catch up more later -- ME
