The task for the quarter finals in The European Scrap Battle was "Music genre". The task was to make a card - with inspiration and just a hint from a music genre. Photos of artists, names of artist or the name of the genre on the card was not allowed.
My inspiration came from Beth Hart and blues. I wanted to make a card with room for a CD. Since Beth Hart is a pianist - I also wanted to make a pop-up piano. The idea for the grand piano is taken from other pop-up cards seen online of Grand Pianos - although mine is modified.
The background is made by using a sheet of music, painting it with Gesso and Distress Paint. I have added piano keys, and diecuts of gears in gold and clock faces in white. The picture in the background is a photo I have taken myself in Port Douglas, Australia. I have added a black silhouette of a man with a golden silhouette of a saxophone.
The CD could not be a CD with the music genre. For this competition I added a blank computer CD. I added the text "Music is what feelings sounds like".
