Music - the food of love

Happy Saturday to you...
Here's another digital piece for the lovely Art Journal Journey monthly challenge where the theme that Hazel from Hazels creative moments  is hosting this time is 'If music be the food of love'

I've used some tubes/clipart and the keyboard is one of mine.
I love to take photos (often weird and whacky) to use either to blend over digital papers and images or to make into my own papers.
This time I made the background using papers I made some time back using photos of paper serviettes and the foil inside of a coffee bag, blended over some sheet music (not real, just something I scribbled on to a blank music sheet)
I also used a photo of Christmas tree lights which were like a bokeh effect.

A couple of people have asked about digital stuff so I aim to set up a page in the near future with some (hopefully) useful information for any one interested.

Thank you for stopping by today

  12. What a great scene - I love how they have their backs to one another, but angled so they are perfectly aligned... you can feel the chemistry!! Love your wacky photos too - what a great way to create unique digi-backgrounds.
