Music Sheet Art



I was looking for a cheap way to create a music art piece for my daughter's bedroom and this free printable from the Knick of Time was a really good way to go.  



She is a girl that likes lots of music related stuff, she has been playing the flute for almost 7 years.  I was looking for a free flute related printable but couldn't find any, so the one with the violin would do!

I asked her to give me a sheet of music she really likes, and this, the Diamond Fanfare was what I took to the copy center to work with.  It was copied on a lighter tone to match the printable.



The printable was blew up to 150% and cut out to fit the music sheet.



The final print.



At home I tried to give it an aged feel by rubbing it with tea.  Here with only one coat and wet.



All dried up, you can already see the difference.



Two coats.



After one more coat, a title was done in the curliest way I could do it :).  First onto a spare piece of paper and then it was transferred.



The final product.

Love the way all these pieces went together!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Such a great final product. I've used coffee or tea before to age fabric and paper. I think it's the best and cheapest way to go!

This is beautiful, Christina. I will have to do this for our home, because both my husband and I perform music! I love the tea stain on the paper, and the lovely music graphic you found.

This looks so great! I played the clarinet all through high school and my husband is a high school music teacher, so this would be perfect for us! He always has sheet music lying around :)
