Viola layout for ARTastic

I have created this layout of Mark playing his viola for ARTastic. Here are the criteria for this month.
It turns out I have a fair variety of fairies in my stash but after much searching only one angel. Well there are two in the stamped image but only one item. Happily, they were nestled amongst clouds which is another criteria. I have also made two of my own clouds in which I've written my journalling.
Then lastly I needed 2 to 3 instruments. Mark is playing one and I have a sticker for the other.
I've made a nice pinwheel for this layout too. It's fun to revisit techniques you haven't used for a while. I like the Dusty Attic chipboard of musical notes I've added.
All in all, I'm happy with the result.

January's inspiration will come from the painting 'Ecstasy of Saint Cecelia' by Raphael

Diva Demand for an extra 6 bonus pointstry and
