Practice Makes Perfect

That is the quote I used for my journaling criteria for the OUAS sketch for the 15th of July, I loved this weeks sketch, here it is:


Inspiration can come from all sources, in my case I had a little one who had her first piano recital.  I loved the center scroll in the sketch and wanted to use something that was music related.  This past Saturday I sat down and drew my inspiration for this page.   I wanted a pentagram and some music notes but I also wanted dimension as in chipboard, and so I created... here is some of the process
 after my doodles , some xacto knife
the pentagram coming alive...
 This week the quote could be handwritten, so I was indeed very happy, this is a mantra of mine I want my kids to keep at it,  and to never give up...
Practice makes perfect


When the time came she played beautifully and she even had a standing ovation, there was one proud mama behind the camera, all excited and happy!!!


and here is my son performing for me on a Sunday morning!


 
I hope you have a beautiful  week, be inspired and keep at it no matter what it is that you want to excel at!

What absolutely FABULOUS pages! This is such a great idea for an embellishment on a music page, and fits the sketch so wonderfully. Your attention to detail is spectacular... I wouldn't have guessed that quote was handwriting if you hadn't told me - it's stunning!
