Quick Project: Sheet Music & Glitter Heart

January 24, 2012

A few months ago, I found this frame among a pile of things my neighbors had put outside to get rid of.

I wanted to fill it with something and I was inspired by Holly at Life in the Fun Lane to do a quick project involving paper and glitter.

I took some sheet music and gave it more aged look by dyeing it with tea.

I then glued it onto a backing (cardboard from a cereal box in this case) and made a heart template out of paper. I put the template on top of the paper and applied Mod Podge, working from the outside in so the glue wouldn’t leak. Then I sprinkled glitter on top.

A little fun fact: The sheet music is of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music – my favorite movie when I was little. I just went to the Sound of Music Sing-a-Long show which was a lot of fun! I actually teared up a bit when belting out My Favorite Things along with the rest of the audience – it brought me back to being a child and watching the Sound of Music with my parents and sister, being so enthralled by the story. Ah, memories…

I hope you’re having a good week!

    I love this idea! I have tons of sheet music just waiting to be turned into art.

    We watched Sound of Music over Christmas, and I totally teared up when the family was singing on the stage about to make their exit. I love that movie!
