The first thing I do is select which pieces I want to use and paint them with white acrylic craft paint. Since the chipboard is brown any color that is put on top will take on a dark hew. So by coating it first with one or two layers of white paint allows the colors to show.
Once the white paint is dry then I select what I want to color the chipboard. Today I used the Musical Botanica Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist kit and sprayed some on the chipboard.
I also used acrylic craft paint on one of the pieces.
Select a book page and a music sheet to use for the page. Using the book page fold it so that it becomes a pocket. Add color to the page using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Then add a pattern using the full stencil from the Musical Botanica Creative Kit.
If you like the vintage distressed look add distressed walnut stain to all the edges.
Optional, sew around the outside edge of the pocket and then across the bottom to frame the pocket. Can always use a rubber stamp to create faux stitches or even use a border stamp.
Using a piece of hymnal book page create a matt to go behind the chipboard pieces. This will be used to give more body and layer over the pocket. I like to glue book pages to thinner book pages to give them more strength. Add stitching around these new matt pieces.
Create the stamped sentiment using Music Is and Music in the Soul rubber stamps. I use Archival Ink Jet Black when stamping. Cut down and add distress ink to walnut stain the edges.
Layer the elements on the pocket, use the Flax stamped and water colored image, thread, butterfly sticker to create dimension and interest.
Apply distress oxide ink Seedless Preserves directly on the sheet music and then through the Stencil to create a pattern in the background.
Stamp the Henna Rose Stamp around the edges of the pink tear off note paper. If you don’t have these little note pads, look to see what you have in your stash. Adding color to plain notebook paper is a great way to change those up.
Adhere the flip out pocket to the sheet music. Using Fabri Tac glue adhere the lace down the outside edge. Select another tear off note paper and a fussy cut Coneflowers stamped image to layer around the page.
Apply the round treble clef over the hymnal scrap and adhere to the corner.
Put one of the printed journal cards from the Musical Botanica creative kit inside the pocket and then select a plain ivory card to decorate.
Adhere coffee dyed paper to the back of a set of four connected tickets. Stamp the Heart Music stamp on top and then layer a butterfly sticker. Inside stamp the treble clef.
On the plain ivory card use the swirls and music stamp to stamp at the top. Apply a musical instrument sticker (found at Dollar Tree). Add a little Bella rose stamped image at the top corner.
Fold a piece of craft cardstock ATC card in half to make a little card. Apply a water colored flower image on the outside and then apply the small Journal QT stamp on top.
