Art Pieces ATC Challenge-Music

I decided to try a transfer technique for this week's challenge. I scanned some music, "yellowed" it with photoshop and added in some notes. Printed it on a transparency and then using gel medium, transferred it to some cotton canvas material I had. Then I fringed the edges. for the background on the ATC, I used a Krylon gold leaf pen and drew in some notes and designs. Finally, I watercolored the background using Phthalo Turquoise and Cobalt Blue Violet. The pen acted as a resist when I watercolored. Then added an embellishment from Blue Moon Beads-Lost and Found, and some wire along with an extra note in the corner.

Thanks for coming by for a look.
