That background isn’t sheet music (although I’d have used that if I’d had any) but a roll of paper by Tim Holtz. It dispenses like plastic wrap. A weird combination of art and utility. Neat!
I’ve been rediscovering my artistic side of late. I have several different types of journals/books/sketchpads. This new one from Ranger Ink’s Dylusions line is a new favourite. The pages are thick, like bristol board, and the elastic holds the covers closed as the pages get thick with art.
I have a number of old children’s books that I like to cut up for cards and paper crafts. This image kept calling to me, so I used matte medium to make a textured “field” background.
And below it’s dry and has a more muted effect.
I’m still trying to decide if I should add any text. Got any good ideas for me?
