Rocking Out with MWLW

Today's newest digis at My Whimsical Little World are music themed.  I visited a new to me creative reuse shop close by and picked up some supplies that inspired me while there.  So today I have two musical projects using some up cycled items!

For Cadence, I decided to take a couple of old CDs (I didn't pick these up at the reuse shop, but I saw them there and knew I had a stack of old ones from my hubby and thought they'd be perfect for this!) and turn them into a notebook:

I started by masking the word 'notes' with a few stickers and painting the entire CD black.  Then I removed the stickers to have the silver show through.  I colored Cadence with Copics and attached her to the front and spread some bling bubbles around here.  I painted a second CD to use as the back cover and covered both of the CDs with paper on the non painted sides.  I punched the CD using my Cinch binder and added some ribbons to the rings once it was filled with paper.

Another thing I picked up at the reuse store was this household sample (I'm not sure if it's flooring or countertop or what, but I always see them at hard ware stores and thing they'd be great for something!).  Since the sample already had a hole punched in it and nicely rounded corners, I decided to use the whole thing for a tag to spotlight Marcia:

I tried a new color combo for her skiing and love how she turned out :)  I used white embossing paste on the cassette stencil over the tag.  I love that the sample had the speckled background already so it wasn't just boring black.  I added the paper trim along the bottom and a piece of leather cording to add a sentiment (and cover up the brand name that was stamped there ;)).  I added some frosted bling around and finished it off by adding some seam binding tied with the same leather cording used on the front.

I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Be sure to stop by some of the other DT members and see what they've come up with as well - 

And visit us at the MWLW Facebook Page as well.
