I entered a Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine challenge. The theme is Black and White and Read all over. A two sided ATC sized ornament using old book paper and a dash of red.

Well, I have a circa 1915 songbook with lovely aged sheet music. A good start. Thin wood ATC blanks, cut from some thin plywood, sanded, aged and painted black. And music glued front and back with edges sanded. Then roses made from more music glued to scrapbook paper backing. I found a great tut on YouTube for easy flowers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir8_Tldxbh0. A semi precious stone for the center.

I loved how they turned out, so I made several. I see Christmas gifts!



OK, this one had some turquoise sneak in. I'm making more with different backing papers for fun.
