Mixed Media Monday - Memories

This week I chose "memories" for the challenge on Mixed Media Monday and I had the song from Cats in the back of my mind. When I googled the lyrics to use in my collage, I was suprised to see that the song is called "Memory", when I always thought it was "Memories"! Oops! Oh well. My collage consists of computer generated images of the moon and Grizabella as well as the lyrics and sheet music of the song. I used lots of tissue paper for texture and the colouring was done with water soluble crayons (without the use of water).
