If Music be the food of love...

Hi there....
 The theme over at AJJ this month is 'If music be the food of love'  I'm linking this piece up to AJJ as it's a theme right up my street.
I can't really read music but can play by ear - yeah I know its probably better to use hands instead of ears :) 
When I'm not crafting or doing other stuff I sometimes like to play keyboards (and dust my guitars!)

This is a digital piece and was made using tubes and clip art. The sheet music I made up and wrote on a blank sheet, then scanned it. The bumpy bit at top and left is a photo of the clean metal side of a cut up/flattened tomato puree tube and digitally blended over the piece.  (It was an interesting texture and seemed to work well digitally. BTW if you are interested in digital stuff, a blended photo of cooking foil gives some really great effects too)
Fonts used are : Hurrah Dreidle BTN and Bambusa Pro Regular.
Thanks so much for stopping by

  2. What a beautiful collage and what a super idea with the tomato will try the tip with the foil for sure as well! Thank you Gill for sharing your art and knowledge with us at Art Journal Journey again!
    Happy weekend.. I know it's soon - but time flies!

  3. Lovely collage Gill.
    I can almost hear the sweet sounds coming from it.
    I'm afraid real digital art is beyond me.
    Thanks to smart phones I can at least play with some layers and filters.
    Super idea for that interesting texture...I like the way your mind works.

    It is better to play music by ears, because your ears are directly connected with your heart,and music must have soul to be good. What are attendance marks?
