Make your favorite memory a lovely keepsake.

Sheet music and notes are so trendy this year.  We'll have several projects that include both.
Thrift stores are a great source.  We suggest you make photocopies of your sheet music, so you can re-use them over and over,  for more projects to come.

Wedding season will be here soon and we wanted to share a project that you may be able to include in an upcoming wedding or event.

Take a  (1) Frame with promise, (2) fitting sheet music, (3) momento or photo, (4) a matting or mounting board (colored foam core), (5) scissors and (6) glue or double-sided tape.

Decide on a frame, photos, sheet music and background.  Keep all items as monochromatic as possible.  Cut all items so that they can be layered and fit neatly into your frame which you have painted with an understated paint.  You will want the contents of your frame to shine and not vice versa.  Next, apply your glue sparingly to each layer and allow to dry thoroughly.
It's all very simple.  The most time consuming part of the project is collecting your  layers or pieces to use in this lovely collage.
There is no right or wrong.  Just make it pleasing to the eye and include items of meaning and sentiment.
