Creativity: Simply the act of making something new

Monday, February 1, 2010


I wanted to make a thank u for my best friend who had taken me to a concert for my b-day... so, naturally I wanted it musically delicious... I struggled with the music paper and in the end made my own..(xerox copy of sheet music and a lot of distressing makes for some really good musical patterned paper)..  Embossed with CB swiss dots & floral screen...sentiment off BB and although hard to see in pic the words are slightly standing and that was thanks to applying a little glossy accents behind lettering... (i luv glossy accents)... also used a fiskars border punch & MM eyelets... TFL!

My Grafico - eyelets
Ooh la la - distressing
Crafty Ann's - metal (eyelets)
