The Music...

Do you hear it? We do. But then again, it's because we are the proud parents of this wailing, little, bubba. 

I used Shimmerz in several ways for this project. I first coated the background cardboard in gesso, and then spritzed a combination of Treasured Hymn, Rolling in the Hay, and Pop Art Pink to the background. I then used a brayer to combine the color in some areas.
I then dipped my brush in the same colors, and lightly painted my letters, and some areas on the crumpled paper, to add a distressed look. I also dripped some paint above the music paper on the right.
I then used Spiced Cider Blingz to drip along the photo for added grunge to the project. :))
Yes, this bubs is precious, and yes he is loud when he cries, but I am going to cherish each music note that he wails at me because time is already flying by!

(I used the Swirlydoos April kit, Whispers of Spring, to create this as well!)
