As music can be interpreted in so many ways I really had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do.
Eventually I cut four notes out of paper and did a collage with different pictures showhing music in many senses.
For the background I wanted to create a black page. I used water soluable crayons but as I applied the moisture the black faded into a dirty grey. Not so good! The lines for the notes were drawn with pitt pens in different colors.
I still like the journal page but would have prefered if the page would have stayed black.
This week I tried to collect ideas about the theme first and then start making the page.
I had quite a lot of ideas and I finally decided to do a kind of jazzy page. When thinking about Jazz music the first picture that comes to my mind is that of a smoky jazz club with dimmed light and saxophon music. Cliché, I know. So I looked for a picture of a saxophon player and found the one of Winston Marsalis. Then I thought about what kind of background I would like to do. Because I think that a picture should speek for itself I settled for different jazz lyrics.
To add a little color I draw many notes flying out of the saxophon some got lost on the page.
This week I am really proud of my page. I had an idea, thought about it for a day or two and then created a harmonious picture.
