Sometimes after you paint a canvas, you want to take it with you, and not just hang it on a wall. That's what happened here. I made a simple heart canvas using my Crafty Chica paints, Crafty Chica Markers,  and Crafty Chica Glitters and decided to make it more functional.

My original idea was to decorate two canvases, line the backs with paper, make pages, and then use hinges to connect it all into a chunky art book - but I couldn't find any hinges.

I did the next best thing. I took the blank book from a Crafty Chica Collage Journal (you can use any blank hardback journal!), painted it, and then glued the canvas on top. Next, I trimmed it out in sequins!

I do plan to carry out my first idea, this served as a nice warm up!

Peace, love, and glitter!

I didn't realize the crafty chica belonged to craftster! I love your stuff and I can't wait to use this idea on my next altered journal- I think it's going to be a cookbook  Wink

This is awesome. I hope you post the hinged one!

I love the sacred heart design, and you're totally right. Sometimes you want to carry your paintings all over with you. Cheesy
