Music for the Heart - Leonie's challenge

This week Leonie's challenge is 'Music for the Heart'. I've had some musical peel offs for a while but hadn't decided what to do with them so this challenge was good for me. I had a few different ideas so decided to make a series of ATC's. Then I saw that Chriss' grandaughter Jessie (age 9) had made a book ATC so I decided to have a go. Thanks Jessie for the inspiration!

I covered 3 blanks with theatre themed paper (inked around the edges) and 2 with musical paper, from a QVC ATC kit I've had for a while. On the theatre paper I added some of the peel offs as they are. The violin on the front - I put onto paper and coloured in using embossing pens and then embossed using clear powder. I then cut this out and used 3-d foam to attach it. I embossed the large trombone peel off in the same way but stuck this one flat. I also used a 3-D jolees sticker of a violin and black peel off text to spell 'music' and 'dance' and some ribbon tied at the top.

On the black music paper I printed the quotes 'If music be the food of on' and 'Dance like no-one is watching...sing like no-one is listening' (I do love a bit of Karaoke - my best friend is also called Sharon and we are known on the karaoke circit in our town!!!)

I stuck these quotes on and traceda round the edges with a brown pen, finishing off by colouring in some more peel offs with a red pen and sticking them on and adding a few hearts here and there. Then I stuck all the ATC's together with some ribbon tucked in between to join them. I've left the last page blank to add my details. I was quite pleased with how it turned out as I usually just make single ATC's. Thanks again Jessie and Leonie for the challenge!

Hi Sharon,

You've been busy!! Lovely set of musical ATC's, well done. Glad you found a home for those peel-offs, everything comes in handy eventually doesn't it.


Clever idea. Congratulations on keeping your journal going too :o)
