Since the playroom is rock and roll themed, I wanted to incorporate music into the art display boards, as well as using them to add some color to the white wall. I downloaded the sheet music to four different Beatles songs, and printed each song on to a different bright color of cardstock.
Then I removed the glass and backer board from the Ikea picture frame, and safely discarded the glass.
Next I used Elmer’s Craft Bond to spray that back of the pages of sheet music, adhering them to the backer board one by one.
I overlapped the pages of sheet music at different angles to create a collage effect, and let the pages stick out past the edges of the backer board.
Once the entire backer board was covered in sheet music, I turned it upside down and used a pair of scissors to trim the excess from all of the edges.
Next, I used a large paint brush to give the sheet music a quick coat of Mod Podge.
The moisture of the Mod Podge caused the sheet music to ripples in a couple of places, but as the paper dried, the ripples disappeared, leaving a nice smooth surface.
I then place the sheet music covered backer board back into the picture frame.
I picked up four metal clips on Michael’s and gave each a quick coat of black acrylic paint.
As soon as the paint on the clips was dry, I Gorilla Super Glue to glue each clip to a music covered backer board, near the top center.
The other half of each strip is placed on the wall.
