Better late than never!

Here, finally is my Me 2 U piece for December.. but i am also being cheeky and putting it forward for both the Object D'Art Altered Book challenge and last weeks Big Art Adventure of Altering a Canvas
...

The piece was created using an old hardback book and 2 mini 4x4 canvases.

{I've put all the pics in a sideshow to save you having to scroll down! lol}
...


To be honest i have neither the time, nor patients right now to add how i made this but would be happy to answer any questions you have, just leave a comment.

I'm feelin rough as old boots right now and think I'm coming down with Flu!

All i will say is it was a mammoth project that had it's ups and downs but i got there in the end, and it is now safely in its new loving home.

Thanks for dropping by, call again soon x

Wow what a great idea to use canvases as book covers! The result is very special even if you did have "ups and downs" with it. Thanks for joining in our challenge and hope you feel better soon.
