I was able to create another layout before I have to get really busy 'restocking' the cabinets since our kitchen reno is complete.  YAY!
I just received my mail order of US Postal "Forever Stamps". That gave me the strong desire to scrap Janis Joplin - one of my very most favorite classic rock musicians.

I have entered my layout in The Dusty Attic April 2015 Mood Challenge!
The colors are stunning!
The word "Magical" on the Inspiration Board totally sums it up for how I feel about Janis Joplin : )

Of course I chose to use The Dusty Attic Music chippie!  I inked it with "Night Sky" (a very deep blue-black) and then added Distress Stickles color "Milled Lavender" to the note heads for some sparkle.

Music ~ #DA0351

The Dusty Attic Mini Hearts #2 are precious and about the diameter size of a pencil eraser. 
These were inked in colors "Night Sky" and "Peony". 
Mini Hearts #2 ~ #DA0990


The Dusty Attic Monarch Butterflies are so detailed and gorgeous!  I prepped them with gesso; coated them in acrylic paint color "Warm White" and then heat embossed in clear Kaleidoscope.   Check out the sparkle!

Monarch Butterflies ~ #DA0819
I decided to layer different designs from the beautiful Bo Bunny Rose Café collection and then surround Janis' renowned photo with pretty flowers.  I had some cool embellishments in my stash: Art-I-Cake's "rock on sister" jewelry piece; bright ribbon with peace signs; and a wooden 'Peace' button....all icons that remind me of the awesome Janis Joplin!

Here are a couple of close ups:
And, since the Postal stamps are what got me started on this LO in the first place, well I just HAD to include one in the design  : )

Well, I'm off to get my kitchen in order, so thank you very much for stopping by and hope you have a Happy Easter day!  Lisa : )
