More Than Words Blogspot April 2016 Challenge

I tried something different this month.
I did an art journal spread taking inspiration from the vibrant colors, the flowers, the white frosting on the tree and the black of the trunk.
My ESCAPE is listening to music, while I'm listening I sing along in my mind and I'm solely focussed on the music and it is so relaxing.

I stencilled the guitar with a Prima Stencil and Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle.
 When dry I played around with my Dylusions Sprays Pure Sunshine, Postbox Red and London Blue.
When that was dry I used another Prima stencil , flowers this time and The Prima Finnabair Snowflake Paste.
That didn't work so well, as the flowers got a bit lost so I painted over them with the Dylusions spray White Linen.
Also flicked this spray about a bit.
The sheet music stamps are from Heidi Swapp and I used Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink.
I painted over the top of the guitar with the London blue, then drew a few treble clefs about!
I then Used  Tim Holtz Distress crayon black to draw more treble clefs, crochets etc, sharp signs and the left hand staves( not sure if that is the right word??).
The freehand drawing is not my strong point but hey the little girl in me loved it!!
