I was looking for an old book to use for my Living Canvas class and he was looking for the usual, Match Box cars.
We both succeeded on our quest!
While rumbling through a stake of books spread out on a table, the perfect little book called "The Bridges of Madison County" caught my eye. I remembered this story that I had read many years ago that reflected one great love, courage, sacrifice, and family. It was perfect! I had discovered a book that reflected the Living Canvas of Francesca and Robert Kincaid and wanted it to reflect my Living Canvas!
"Write your own Story". This will be my first altered book and I am so excited by how my cover turned out I can't put it down.
Here is a close up of the bottom front.
I made the leaves out of my quilt batting
and sprayed with Lettuce Color Wash ink.
I added to the spine the saying "It's the little things that make life Beautiful". This is to remind me to pay attention to the little things because it's all these little things in life that help paint my life canvas!
Some words on the back to remind me to DREAM, DISCOVER, BELIEVE and IMAGINE! All powerful words that also impact my life canvas.
Now off to start writting my story in my little book!
