More than just a book, this masterpiece was a true labor of love! Created from an upcycled book, this book shrine measures 13 x 13 inches in size and is a feast for your eyes with so many different elements, found objects and inclusions to discover.
This piece was a true exploration in color and texture, using my favorite palette of using a rust base with highlights of blues with a touch of purple. The front cover features a centered frame with a flaming heart resin piece with an small enclave holding an Eiffel Tower. The weathered paint brush is topped with a paper clay clock, just one of many found objects incorporated into this piece.
The inside reveals the shrine of the book with a resin set pocket watch and other vintage findings. The rich background texture is highlighted with a harlequin print which is carried over to the back cover of the book as well.
