Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - Music

I found 3 great photos of my Dad when we were clearing out Mummy's house. The one that I have scrapped here we think was taken for his 21st.
I have chosen neutral, earthy tones to fit with the colouring of the photo.

The papers are all from ITC, but a mixture of stuff that I had in a box of left overs from other projects and craft days.
The red back ground mattes have been embossed using Couture Creations 'Adagio' embossing folder.
The scrolls in either corner have been stamped with a Papermania music stamp.

The flowers and leaves are cut from paper scraps using Spellbinders dies  'Floral Tags' and Rose Creations'.
The yellow and orange paper flowers I think are by 'Got Flowers', they came in a bottle...
The journalling tag and the paisley piece underneath it are by My Minds Eye '29th Street Market'.
I have edged everything with Memento inks in yellows, golds and browns. With the journalling tag I have then picked up some of the colour with a water brush to touch in the flowers and leaves.
I made 3 embellishments by melting High Gloss WOW powders on a spoon and pouring it into Martha Stewart silicone molds.
Lastly, I have added lots of gems and then given a subtle sparkle by spraying the two groups of flowers with Spray and Sparkle.

I am going to add this page to:
