"Lets Face The Music"

Hello ... Good Morning!

I am hosting the challenge at City Crafter this week and this is your inspiration picture 


Because this week I am asking that you use anything Music related on your projects ... This can be a charm, sheet music, an image etc., Music is the universal language ... where would we be without it?  I have a penchant for anything with sheet music and I love listening to music ... So for my project, I wanted to revisit the piano box I made HERE and maybe tweak it a little ... Warning! there are a lot of pictures 


you may be able to see that the thing I 'tweaked' was the keyboard ... now it sits neatly ... I used a WaltzingMouse stamp for the keys and glossy accents to make them shine


I'm not sure if you can see it but I also glossed the top of the piano


A piece of doily sits on top and I made a little framed picture and a tiny letter which nestles behind a glittered rose also made from sheet music


Sheet music lines the inside of the box too


Then I remembered a black glass frame I bought ages ago in a sale for £1 ... It's not the easiest thing to photograph though


All I needed to add to this was some more sheet music roses, some pearl stems, a ribbon and a pretty butterfly


I love how these look on my glass table


... and I can't wait to see what YOU come up with ... 
For more inspiration just hop over to the blog to see the rest of the DT work and that of our wonderful guest designer this week Jill Sargison ... and we have Pixie Dust Paperie  kindly sponsoring once again

Till soon ... keep safe
