Hi Everyone, the Male Room challenge today is

What a vast subject of things I could have done with the theme of Music. I always search my files before searching anywhere else and I found just the the image and sentiment I could use. They are both from Create with TLC and fit so well together, I thought.

I coloured the image faces only, in PS, then printed the image and sentiment out with the papers, the art deco background, I thought I knew where it was from, then found I hadn't identified it, so if anyone knows I'll add the info. I embossed it with a Die'sire music EF, the striped paper is from a Debbie Moore Art Deco CD. I layered them with black paper and added black Dovecraft 3D drops. Can you feel the music?

Thought I would show you the sunsets we had the other night after a miserable dark wet day, certainly didn't expect colour and it was only at the end of the mountain, nowhere else, Spooky?
