If you'd like to try making a collage like this, use the colors and imagery that "sings" for you :-)
Materials & Tools
Watercolor paper, cold pressed
1. Paint the watercolor paper with Titian buff and allow to dry. Adhere tissue paper with thinned matte medium and allow to dry. Drip India ink and spritz with water to let it run. Dry completely. Apply a thin coat of gloss medium, followed by a "frame" of raw umber. Add some yellow ochre on bubble wrap.
2. Add strips of sheet music with matte medium. Accent with iron oxide, and with cobalt turquoise stenciled through a plastic vegetable bag.
3. Make marks with the bottom of dixie cup dipped in iron oxide.
4. Print out an image on sheet music (cut to size for your printer). Adhere with matte medium. Allow to dry completely.
5. Glaze with yellow ochre.
