    I may have to steal this idea for myself. I love the way you used book pages as the background! How big were the canvases you used?

    What a fabulous art project. I loved the interview/tutorial. Great stuff. And I just happen to have an old Vintage Almanac that would be perfect for this project. Also I think a great place to get birds would also be from old used greeting cards. I keep al of mine for art projects. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing your great ideas. I had such fun making my own; my kids were amazed. And I love it just above the piano. I ended up using 2 square canvases and music sheets in place of the dictionary pages. Fun, fun, fun!

    Another GREAT super easy and cheap idea that has endless possibilities!! It is just the idea I needed to get the art from one of my many undecorated rooms that I had a idea of what I wanted and could never find it. I love it!!

    I loved your idea and used it to make a one of a kind wedding gift for a friend. The theme of her wedding was Pride and Prejudice with lots of butterflies (on invites and table decor)…I found an old copy of Pride and Prejudice at the used books store and used butterflies instead of birds on the canvases. I also wrote the date of their wedding in the bottom corner. It turned out beautifully and made me look way more artistically gifted than I really am!

    It breaks my heart that this is done to books. Perhaps that charming “Dictionary for Boys and Girls” was already missing pages. I can’t imagine taking apart a beautiful object like a book to make another, lesser, object. I really hope the copy of “Pride and Prejudice” the other poster used was an old paperback with missing pages!

    I loved this sooo much that as soon as I saw it I started one. But instead of book paper, I did sheet music from some of my favorite songs. It turned out really cute. Thanks for the idea!

    I just did this in my new apartment. I used five 16″ 20″ canvas’ that where on sale and news papers that me and a friend cut up. It took about two days but the canvas looked great and then I did a leaves and butterfly pattern. It spans four of the canvas’ and takes us up about 7sq feet. Looks fabulous!

    Hi! I love this and I am trying to make one of my own. I used craft spray glue to stick the pages initially and then Mod Podge to seal the whole thing. Unfortunately, my pages became wrinkly and I am not sure how to fix it. Any suggestions? Thanks again for posting this!

    Hi there!
    I’m looking to create a few of these of my own, as my dad recently brought my roughly 300 odd books over from the property he works on (unfortunately, some are damaged beyond repair so I’m upcylcing them), and I was wondering if you had any issues with pages krinkling when the glue is added? I did a test run, and I’m having issues. Its rather thin paper, so I’ll try something thicker, but any advice?

    Hey, this is great. Tried it at home myself..my first Pinterest inspired project that I tried. One question though, how do you get the fully finished look? I tried my hardest to make sure all pages were glued right at the edges but there are some wrinkles and non glued parts here and there.. Any suggestions? I used news paper as I didn’t want to sacrifice a book for this! Thanks again. Your awesome!
