I got out my vintage dictionary and thumbed through the Q entries....hmmm...quadrangle, qualm, quart, queen...too obvious....and then I spotted the word quaver. I immediately thought of music and quavers...there are 2 to a crochet, 4 in a minim or 8 to a semibreve. I have played the piano since I was 7 and I own one which I bought with a small bequest an elderly great aunt left me 30 years ago.
I don't lift the lid every day but it is fun when I do.
I rarely practice but a bit like riding a bike, your fingers just know where to go and I had a pleasant hour tinkling the ivories. Below is one of my favourites. I always enjoy playing a waltz...if you can read music it's a very famous one and I guarantee you will be humming if for hours!
So then it was play time in my art journal.
Here is the dictionary page
I wanted some very vintage colours for my pages so I chose these inks and sprays.
I started adding my inks and sprays, lots of splashes and drips,
It was then time to put on my creative hat and add the elements I chose.
Here are my finished art journal pages.

I really did enjoy making these pages and they are also a lovely memory of my daughter's early musical years...I put plenty of love into this creation. Happy days.
It's been a lovely sunny afternoon today...it makes such a change from all the rain. I hope you got to glimpse a little blue sky today. I also noticed how much lighter the evenings are getting...yes spring is not too far away now.
Thanks as always for your kind visits and comments.
Bye for now,
