Try and try again

My mission today was to create an image to be used as the back of the jewel case of my CD when it??s released. I wanted something that would complement the front cover I designed in February but it took me a while to hit upon the right design. I started off with my recorders laid out on my music room??s wooden floor in various combinations but none of them really worked for me. Once I??d finished teaching this evening I had another go, this time using the same red background as last time. After a few attempts (and a false start to iron out the creases!) I hit upon a design which really appealed to me. The second version here is my attempt at what the final result might look like. The house style of the company who are producing the CDs is to have a ghost image under the track listing. I??m sure the company??s designer will do a better job of this than I have but it was fun playing around with the image to see if it would work in principle. Next step ?? to choose the tracks that will actually be included on the CD ?? I??ve got about 25 minutes too much music!

Shame you can't have the fully saturated image on the back with the "ghost" image on the inside when you open up the case

This one certainly complements the front cover (if anything I think I actually prefer this one.)
