The Grand Piano... by Cindy

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today...

I am super excited to be back with D-lish Scraps for another term, and for those of you that don't already know me, here's a little bit about me...

I am married to my wonderfully supportive husband Bill and we live in Melbourne, Victoria with our fur babies.... Cleopatra (Cleo) an almost 3 year old Russian Blue cat, Henri a 2 year old Tonkinese cross cat, and our newest member Kanishka, an 8 week old Alaskan Malamute.... you should expect to see cute puppy scrapbook layouts in the near future...

I have been creative all my life... and love how the Scrapbooking industry allows me to combine so many of my creative outlets... I love Mixed Media and design work, along with teaching. My Mantra is Create and Educate. Over the years I have had the privilege of becoming a Fully Certified Ranger Educator, Copic Certified Instructor/Designer, and published designer. I have had the privilege to teach in Australia for many years, and have been lucky enough to teach overseas on numerous occasions. 
I have had the honour of being on several design teams, and apart from D-lish Scraps, I am currently on the Scrap FX design team and the Couture Creations design team.

Well I think that's plenty about me, hopefully I didn't bore you too much and you're still here with me.... 
for my first share for this new term I wanted to create something that shows a little of what I really love to do.... When I have plenty of time I love to create off the page style pieces and altered art pieces.... and I have created one especially for this first posting...

The Grand Piano


I love to create things like this from scratch.... for this piece; for the base construction I used the Scrap FX 12x12" chipboard sheets, (if you'd like some of these just ask Amanda to order them for you)... I use them for everything from construction, mounting of photos and even die cutting, as the chipboard sheets do die cut well with steel rule dies such as the thick Sizzix dies...



I used the Scrap FX Rose Stencil to create the pattern all over the top and sides of my piano and the music stencil to create the piano keys...


I created the main flower cluster using D-lish scraps trellis roses, vintage roses, mixed size roses, medium roses and mini roses, along with carnations and a pinwheel bloom...



I used the Scrap FX ornate chandelier, I also scattered some adhesive rhinestones...



it wouldn't be one of my creations without some metal embellishments.... I included some Metal filigree circles and filigree butterflies and some metal hinges...



I decorated the legs with some Scrap FX doodad flourishes (doodad F).... 



I added a couple of Scrap FX flourishes; flourish I and flourish H to the top of the piano...





well I hope you have enjoyed this little insight...into my creative mind...

come and join me again tomorrow for the next instalment...




till next time

Happy creating
