Music and Dancing

Hello Blogging Friends......what a fine day this is! 
I have been working on a two page layout in one of my smaller journals and finally finished it last night. I have really been enjoying the theme over at Art Journal Journey this month......No faces, No wings and No leaves.....But COLLAGE.

I found the pattern for the ballerina feet over at The Art Sherpa Website On the right side of her page there are a number of patterns she offers for free.  I printed it out and transferred it onto watercolor paper.  I chose Inktense Watercolor pencil to color it in.....then a good coat of sealer........then trimmed it out.

The background started as a mop-up page of paint, from there I went in many directions....Gesso, Gelatos, Pitt pens, Spectrum Noir pens, Washi tape and more paint..........always more paint...LOL!  Once I had the background and the boarder pretty much the way I wanted it I added the ballerina feet and painted in the sentiment.

This just might have to be done on a canvas one day.

Music Quote:

Music is a funny thing......I create with music constantly......the music is loud and fast when I am cleaning house.......the music is soft and slow when I need to relax..... it has a very definite beat when I am walking for exercise...... it is my companion when I am is on constantly during the Christmas holidays.....I take it everywhere with me.

What do you use music for....or do you?

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will take a moment and leave me a comment and I will return the visit.


  1. Wonderful journal pages, I love how the feet seem to be dancing off the page. Music is wonderful, I hear different types according to how I'm feeling and what I'm doing. I love classical music, but also the hits of the 60s and 70s. And today I've been listening to Billy Joel and Sting! Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. I love this spread Krisha! It's AMAZING! I have to check out the link as well, I know her from you tube but didn't check her website yet! Thank you for the inspiration!
    I love music as well . Even though not playing any instrument and having a horrible singing voice I do regardless enjoy and feel good music. Music is wonderful and can help us so much.
    I enjoy it as often as I can - like you if I clean the house or during driving - it just gives me pleasure whatever I do - I also create better art by listening to music.
    Thanks a lot for this wonderful spread to the No , No , No theme!
    I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead!

  4. Fabulous page Krisha, the background is just right for the ballet shoes.

  5. Its a beautiful journal spread Krisha. I love the background and the lovely ballet shoes.
    I like a variety of music, but my favourite type at the moment seems to be classical, that said it could well be Queen or Abba tomorrow.
