OCTOBER LESSology Challenge ~ ROCK ON!

Well, sort of. Actually the LESSology challenge is called MUSICAL CHAIRS: INCORPORATE
MUSICAL NOTES INTO YOUR PROJECT.
This month I've created a LO using musical notes in a couple of ways.
And it IS a 'rock' page. Of sorts!
As you can see, I've pulled out some very old music score & used it
as a matt for the photo. Which isn't the best quality, but important to record.
Jeff adores music, so visiting Hard Rock Café in London was
a MAJOR highlight for him!
I found some music manuscript paper & used a chicken wire die cut as an embellie.
Worked a treat. And you can see some ric-rac, ribbon and a green button which
 are also upcycled for my page.
You only need to incorporate one upcycled item - but
I often seem to find a few more;)
Like the green coloured bubble wrap behind the photo, LOL!
Amazing what can be used on a page;)
To create the webbing hearts, I simply cut a heart free hand then layered it
on an old index card, gluing it down with PVA glue.
Once dry, I fussy cut it, leaving a small border.
And my little 'fake flair' tucked in behind? It's old cardboard from
a biscuit packet. I've hand written on some musical treble clefs, then added a
sticky acrylic round over top! Such FUN being creative:)
Here's a closie of another one I made. Hope this gives you some ideas for joining
our LESSology challenge this month!
Cheers ~ Lizzy H ♥♥♥

  8. I love how inventive and creative you are Lizzy, I re kin you could make scrapbook pages without any scrapbook supplies at all and they would still be fabulous! The webbing heart and the treble clef flair look really cool, love the whole page xx

  17. WOW! yeah you blow me away. I seriously need to think OUT of the box like you do. I also love your handmade embellies. They are just the ticket. Another fabulous layout and who cares is the pic isn't the best it is all about the memories. I do miss telling the stories.
