Welcome to my portion of the collaboration with Canvas Corp Brands. Today, I am going to share a little book cover that I received from Canvas Corp. I used the shield from the Mythos collection from Relics & Artifacts®. I wanted something resembling an old coat of arms. With our recent trip over seas and to see so much history, this little book cover is going to make a cute little album for one of our many excursions we had.
So a little about “Coat of Arms”, I am not an expert by any means, but I can condense the general concept behind them. Coat of Arms were traditionally made to represent an individual or a family. Primarily the shield is the focal point but the entire coat of arms tells a story of who bears the coat and what heraldic achievements they had. Each element of the Coat of Arms has a significant meaning to the individual. As our one tour guide stated, “The more powerful you are the bigger the coat.”
I was very surprised to learn some of the history behind them and just as surprised to find out there is actually a governing body to help determine who is granted a coat of arms based on their achievements, family's pedigree, and genealogy.
So my project is a small resemblance of some of the history we got to experience while on our many adventures in England. When I thumb through the 3200 pictures and find just the right ones, I will bind the covers into a mini album. I made a little video for you all with the creative process and products in this collaboration with CCB.
