Artwork, Craft projects, Greetings Cards, Up-cycling

Music brings us to life and can evoke many emotions. I collected vintage music sheets as the covers and sheets are beautifully designed. So I decided the create some unique greetings using original music sheets

  • I created these cards out old music sheets, to give them a second life
  • Music is such an important part of many peoples lives, it can portray emotions and inspire memories
  • What better way to celebrate someones Birthday than with a song that reminds you of them!

I have always liked collaging, for these cards I wanted to play with perspective by incorporating objects of different scales to a background of a similar theme

  • I created these cards using images I cut out of old magazines
  • I wanted to experiment with scale and perspectives to create images with depth and charecter
  • They’re each completely unique and personal to you

They’re created using recycled materials, great way to use unwanted magazines and create something unique and beautiful!

How-to-guide:

  • Look through your favourite magazines and cut out a selection of different objects you like
  • Choose a background image and choose objects that fit with the theme
  • Place the different objects on your background, try to build up a story or theme
  • Play around with perspectives and scales to give it a twist
  • Once you are happy, glue them together
  • To ensure pieces do not unstick, apply a top coat of sticky-back-plastic or PVA glue
