Musical Instrument Museum

As soon as I saw this chevron patterned template, I knew it needed to be added to my collection of creative tools. I love that it creates a chevron pattern, but could also be used as arrows.

This is a plastic template from Crafter's Workshop that can be used with paint or mist to create patterns on projects.

My first project with this template involved making a painted background on a layout.

I just used painter's tape to block off the part of the template that I didn't want to use. I blotted paint onto the paper with a foam paintbrush.

This layout is about a day spent with friends at a new Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, AZ. This was one of the coolest museums I've ever visited. Each guest wears headphones that automatically play music connected to each display when you stand in front of it.

The display rooms were divided by continent and then had diplays of instruments from almost every conurty in that continent. We spent three hours and could have easily spent more time.

I highly recommend a visit to this museum if you are ever visiting Phoenix.

Layout supplies: Note to Self Kit, Making Memories Paint, Crafter's Workshop Template
