I am not sure that "songs" really needs much explaining, everyone knows how a great song heard at just the right time can make you really happy! I love the way music can move you and transport you through time and space. This section will be about the soundtrack of my Happiness Project. Whenever I hear a song that speaks to me about the project, makes me smile, or takes me back to a special time or place I will chronicle it here. At the end of the year, I think I will make a CD and a playlist of all of the songs.
The large piece of sheet music is from the Aviary piece of patterned paper. I love that it has a bee on it since I have a thing for bees (images of them that is, not the real thing!).
I have always said that Vintage Photo Distress Ink was my hands down favorite go-to brown distress ink. I have to say though, after doing all of the elements of this project using Walnut Stain, I think there may be a tie for favorite. I really love the softness of the brown in Walnut Stain. It is dark when you want it to be but blends and fades into such a nice soft shade.
I think the quote I found for this card is so perfect for it, especially since it follows the "words" card in the tray.
To "attach" the elements on this card, I used one of the Maya Road Trinket Pins to "pin" the paper in place. It pokes through to the back of the card and back out the front. This made my card bow so I bent the pin after it was in place until the card laid flat again. The pin still looks flat on the front but has a slight curve on the back.
Tomorrow I am taking a quick break from the Happiness Project sharing for a Christmas post. I have a great vintage image I will be posting and also have a little story I want to share. I will be back to the Happiness project the day after tomorrow for the second to the last card.
