On the Happy Daze blog this month the challenge is to give your item a musical theme in the March to your own tune challenge.
I've had this papier-mache mask sat in my "to-do" cupboard for a while and decided to use this. I started by covering it with old sheet music and then I added a light layer of Claudine Hellmuth gesso over this. After it dried I wiped on Jo Sonja's acrylic paints and then left it to dry again then added a layer of Viva Decor Croco crackle paint in transparent. After this dried I randomly stamped over the mask using a Prima music background stamp and black Versafine ink.
I added some beaded string around the edge (from a Christmas garland I took apart) and a ribbon to hang it on the wall. Finally I added a ballerina charm and some Prima flowers which I jazzed up with Stickles and then the words were done using vintage Letraset transfer lettering.
The metal embellies on the cheeks were from The Works and I coloured them with a permanent pen before sticking a rhinestone in the centre:
