Wall hangings - Hazaaaah!!!

I'm making a point this year of creating things with objects I've collected and have stored all over my studio (dining/computer/gym room) space.  I tend to hoard away all these cool card shapes,boxes,random bits of wood and chipboard and then end up ignoring them and just going to the stacks of paper to make something.  I just get drawn to the paper,I can't help it!

Anyway, so I had this little stack of shapes in my odd bod box and decided to use them :o)  of course,99% of the time, regardless of what I start off with,it's going to be covered with some vintage sheet music.  I love looking through my pile of old sheet music and choosing some for each project, I can't imagine working without it.

My odd bod box

My fabulous collection of vintage sheet music,always being added to!

So, I ended up covering five different shapes with scrapbook paper front and back as a base and then chose some sheet music for the front of each piece.
I was very happy with how they all turned out and was especially pleased that I seem to be speeding up with my work, now that doesn't mean I'm speedy, by any stretch of the imagination, but I did finish each one in just a day (except for one), which for me is amazing!  Time just goes so fast when you're creating something doesn't it?  Hours go by in minutes,it's like the 'Twilight Zone'!

Got some great sunny photos taken before all the snow arrived.

Bear braving the snow for a very quick trip outside! He much prefers to be curled up on the sofa inside in the warm.


  1. Love them!

    1. Thanks Dawn! I'm loving seeing all your new paintings, you're such an inspiration. Yeah,I try to keep my collection of'stuff'down to a minimum but so many things look like they've got 'potential'! hehe
