Sing by Samantha Read

The theme for this month is music, music means many things, but to me it means singing and dancing. The quote that immediately came to mind is this famous Mark Twain quote,

“Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.” 

I have a very talented music friend whom when she hears musical notes she can see colours, so I chatted to her on the phone and asked her what colours she could see whilst talking to me and her reply was yellow, orange and red. Below is my creation combining the quote and chat to my friend. It's a decorative hanging measuring 8 x 10 inch. I covered the whole thing with beeswax, my latest most favourite thing to do, and embedded some musical note sequins. 
The contrast between the waxy wax and smooth shiny sequin in lovely.
What's even more lovely is the beeswax smell.

I used:
Lace Guipre and 

Wishing you a happy day, Sam xxx

  3. I love everything about your decorative hanging, the colors, moon girl in the cage, the saying. And how cool is that, that your friend can hear colors. It would be neat to meet her.
