Mixed Media Monday: Digital Collage

Craft Attitude pro Anne Grbic tells us how she made this cool, modern collage:

I created my own digital collage, printed it on Craft Attitude, then glued it and wrapped it around the wood wall panel to make this décor piece. 





I layered a separate printed piano piece on the bottom right. I applied Liquitex gloss varnish over the whole thing, then embellished with alcohol inks and. I wrapped the ribbon around for an interesting effect – the black and white representing piano keys. I then glued down a piece of cardstock on the back.
