Love, Live Music - OUAS Feb Challenge

Hello Everyone

I have just managed to squeeze this page in before the deadline. I was sure at one point that I would not get to play along.  But, I am pleased that I managed to get this page done in time.

So here is the challenge.

Journalling Theme: "Totally addicted to...." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 




Here is my take on it.


My title of Love, Live Music kinda tells you what this page is about.  My journalling card that starts with "Me" that you can see peeking out behind the phone dial says this: I absolutely cannot go a day without turning on the radio and listening to the music.  There is normally a song that stays with me the entire day and which I cannot get out of my brain.  I know song words and artists and love to dance and sing, even if just doing the dishes.  I love and live music!


I really did not have a photo of me, that would have depicted my love of music.  So I went to Pinterest and saw this retro photo of this awesome radio with these gorgeous flowers, and just knew that this was perfect.
So I created this page to compliment the photo and I love how it turned out.


The background involved lots of gesso, stencilling, texture paste, paints, inks, stamping and washi.


I used the Fancy Pants Trendsetter Collection. The colouring was a perfect match with the photo.

Thanks for stopping by to see my take on this challenge!
I hope you have a super evening!
