Alter It Monthly "Music"

For the month of August Alter it Monthly has a theme of "Music". Their sponsor this month happens to be The Altered Element which has amazing items for your altered projects. You have to hop over to their website and take a lookie.

My altered piece I submitted happens to be a tribute to my sweet heart of a brother Tracy G.... an amazing and brilliant guitarist & music writer. At first glance he looks rough and intimidating, but "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover".
The foundation of my altered piece was an old music book salvaged from a junk store. A niche was created to house many very special photos of Tracy from long ago to now.
Quote by Tracy G given during a radio interview.
As far as the randomness embellishments, this was also created for a art scavenger hunt, where we were provided a list of items to find and make something with it. Some of those items were, feathers, washers, nuts & bolts, metal, wire, paper clips, old postage stamps, concert tickets, popsicle sticks, and a whole bunch more items.
