Welcome to my project collaboration with Canvas Corp Brands. I am sharing the 4” x 6” canvas and paper book that I received from Canvas Corp. The inspiration for the book came from an antique piece I found at an antique market in Arezzo, Italy.
The beautiful blue tone of the jewel went perfectly with the other paint supplies from Canvas Corp. For the centerpiece I used the Rising Spirit III set from Relics & Artifacts for the front cover.
I have been watching the television show “Versailles” and can say that it had a lot to do with the inspiration of this piece as well. The opulence and grandeur of that time truly came out when I started putting this book together. The blue and gold theme resonates from the decor of the Versailles property. Velvet, lace, gold gilt, sparkling jewels, tapestries and ancient book pages are all the things that this book is made up of. I could imagine it sitting atop an ornate side table in one of the grandeur rooms of Versailles. Or perhaps on the night table in the kings bedroom.
The Tattered Angels glimmer glam glitter paint was all I needed to add that extra color and sparkle to the heart, wings and flame after it was painted with an acrylic gold paint. The blue of the glimmer glam paint got into all the crevices of the piece and added another dimension that worked well with all the jewels and charms on the book spine. The paint was also added to the braided trim around the book that was originally a cream color. The gold glimmer mist was added to the heart and the inside book pages for that “aged” look.
I hope you enjoyed my project collaboration with Canvas Corp Brands. Their products blend well with the Relics & Artifacts line and are so easy to use.
