Altered Book of Love | CanvasCorpBrands

Part of my creative challenge this year is to work more on off-the-page projects. I have felt like I’ve been stuck in a 12×12 scrap routine where I felt comfortable and unchallenged. The thing is that to be able to develop and grow, you have to get out of your comfort zone and do something…different.

When I found a spare copy of Canterbury Tales by Chaucer, I knew that there was no way I would be throwing it away. Not only because it’s one of my favourite books but also because I could alter it and give it a second life.


If you’d like to see the process, I have a step-by-step tutorial up on Canvas Corp Brands blog.

Here is a list of CCB products used:
