LIFE IS LIKE A PIANO ...

{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #74}


This week our theme for Challenge #74 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is MUSIC  I used this trio of quirky turtles to create an orchestra, namely Serenading, Serenading Turtle and Turtle Violinist.  You can find them at QKR STAMPS here, here and here Our sponsor this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner is of course QKR STAMPS.

    Another Centre Step Design.  The sentiment is from  DIGI DARLA DESIGNS and you can find it here the design papers are from Fabscraps and Art from the Heart.

    I have coloured  the images and sentiment with Copics.   The jewel stones are from Blueberry Bear.   I have also tried my hand at a new folding technique with squares and have created a little tutorial for these flowers (see below).

    Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your MUSIC creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.74. Can't wait to see your creations.





    A few ladies have asked me for a template for this centre step design.  Here it is, unfortunately being from South Africa its in metric units:




    Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

    Here is the tutorial for the folded flowers created with 2" squares:




    Just quickly sharing another giraffe photo.  This one I actually took myself some years ago in Tala Game Reserve, here in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.  Very naughty, if I must say so myself lol - its not what you think, its an older male showing a younger male the ropes.



    Thanks for your treasured visits here.  Without your motivation and inspiration, blogging will just not be the same.
