This is my project for this month.
I love mixed media, altered art, flea markets and garage sales. I had this violin in my stash and decided to make an altered mixed media music canvas.
My violin was found at a local thrift store. I added several different pieces to the violin including wooden butterfly, metal gear and clogs, metal flowers, dollar store gems, die cut notes.
The sentiment idea (you can't overdose on Music) came from Pinterest and inspired my canvas.
I used a reversed wooden canvas for the base and used some old music sheets for the background. The background was stained with a brown paper stain.
I added many finding from my stash to the background, including gears, musical symbols, gems, metal flowers etc to the background. I painted most of them with gesso then paints and metallic waxes. The inside edge and outer edge of the canvas was lined with burlap tape.
Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
