Time for....Music

Here is this weeks take on Ronda's theme for the Capturing Time Minibook. I had real fun with this one as I haven't had chance to craft at all this week. I've been fighting off a viral infection & having to deal with stress from work. The work thing is kinda sorted, well until next Friday at least, but the virus is still hanging on.

I decided to fashion this page in a similar way to my front cover as the paper & transparency (both Crafty Individuals) were just perfect. I also desperately wanted to incorporate my new stamp (Artful Mosaic) which I had on order from Joan in Netherlands & it finally arrived Monday. I stamped it onto some scrap Bazzill (Avalanche) coloured it with various pigment inks & then clear embossed it. The effect is lost in this photo. The photo on the adjoining page is a close up that I took last year of my fav CD's. I couldn't print it large as it blurred so I turned it into a fake polaroid shot. Stamps & other embellies remain the same throughout the book.
I can't live a day without music playing in my home. If I'm very stressed very gentle classical stuff helps me to fall asleep, I have a CD player by my bed. I have an eclectic taste in music & can't say anyone song is my favourite.

Wonderful pages Paula, the images you have used are fab. Sorry to hear your are unwell again, I hope you'll be better soon and that things improve at work. Take care

This looks fabulous, Paula. I'm glad you have found classical music destresses you. I am the same - just love it playing in the background when I am home alone.

Take care and get well again soon, OK?
