Jazz Hands

he can play piano…he has jazz hands

I recently came across a new Australian challenge site: Scrap the Boys. The idea of needing to scrap a layout about boys only appealed to me and I decided to enter. This month’s challenge was to include some tape on the layout, and to include the word PLAY in the title, and naturally it had to be about a male.

Well, at some stage I bought some decorative tape that has piano keys on it from a $2 shop. Since you ‘play’ a piano, it seemed that I had to do a layout about piano playing. My Dad is a jazz piano player and I had some photos of him from a few years ago, so that became my subject. I loosely followed this layout from Let’s Scrap.

The papers are from my TLC selling days, from the Runway Salt & Pepper kit. The title is Dymo tape and Maya Road ‘David’ chipboard that I coloured with my Sakura star pens. I turned three white brads into music notes, and also added three little mirror tiles, all from my stash. The most fun part of the layout IMHO is the little hands (from some baby embellishments in my stash) that I put on top of some more of the piano keys tape.

Since I ran out of space for the journaling, I included it on a tag behind the right hand picture.

Till next time, happy days!
