This colorful music design was so much fun! All it takes is a page of music (mine is decorative paper purchased from Hobby Lobby) a canvas or board and some bright colored paints!
Attaching Music to Canvas
Using Mod Podge I attached the music sheet to the canvas. It goes on quick and easy and dries quick. The page was a little larger than my canvas so I cut it down with scissors to fit on the canvas.
That Antique Look
I then took brown paint and added it to the outside edge of the canvas. The brush got dryer and I scrubbed the drying paint outside edge towards the middle. This gave it that antiqued look.
Any bright paints will work for the flower. Starting with the center of the flower I drew a half moon. Then some small circles to separate the center from the petals. Next I started adding triangular petals randomly in position and color and added several rows.
I finished adding petals to the flower then added a few small petals on the outer edges of the flower to make it appear like pieces of petals floating away.
I got all of the petals in place then outlined them all with thin black line of paint. Avoiding perfect lines keeps it looking a little rough and rustic. I then hand printed the words Be Happy to go with the uneven/imperfect look of the artwork. That is it! So much fun!
