So many of the pieces I make incorporate images of women so it is nice to create a more masculine piece.
The frame is from my Antique Frames Set Download which I attached to a piece of chipboard covered with music themed paper.
I mounted an image from Letters from the Past Set Download behind a wood die cut window. I imagined him sitting at a window playing his instrument.
The gentleman is from my Letters from the Past 1 collage sheet and you can also find him on the same download set as the scene behind the window.
Next I added the instrument, (I’m thinking that it's a cello?), and the sheet music.
For further embellishment I added brass pieces to the top of the windows and to the bottom I added, paper vines and flowers, beaded trim and a brass piece.
The brass piece at the bottom is a gift from Carmen Conners (an Internet art friend). Her blog is https://papercraftgoddess.blogspot.com/.
ALPHA STAMPS SUPPLIES USED IN THIS PIECE
The backside of the paper below is very close to what I used.
STAY TUNED FOR SOME HOLIDAY/CHRISTMAS PROJECTS
