2nd canvas book (crazy amigo"butterflies")


I decided to start on a second canvas book today. This is the cover and it has mixture of paper, paint, buttons, threads and tags. The Ambrose tag was off a check shirt that I bought for my husband and it already came grungified which is why I kept it! I quite like the contrast between the peaceful buddha and gentle button butterflies compared with the mad, eclectic background..much like life really..(its nice to have some peaceful moments in a chaotic day!)

I really love this Lorraine - I am so inspired to try canvas pages. Is this for an art journal? I'd love to know more about it!
