This challenge was this:
What inspires you to be the creator you are, what inspires your creativity, your goals dreams, what or who keeps you grounded. Think of a person, place, music, season, etc. Create something that inspires you. Along with who inspires you, use your favorite embellishments!
I chose to make an alteration using music as my inspiration.
I found this cute mini music stand at an estate sale.
I embellished it with some of my favs: lace, mica flake, metal filigree, and art stones from Finnabair.
I also love to add inspirational quotes to my work.
and finish with some splatter.
Using some light paste though a stencel and painting with Metalique and Opal paints.
Adding a little rust paste with patina paint to give more interest to the stand.
