Turn arounds I call them but they are actually small...

wrapped canvases, sized 4x4 and 6x6!Each of these small lovelies took hours to make and are quite detailed. They start out as  a small canvas and then I apply layer after layer. The first layer is an actual antique page or pages from books like the Christmas Coral and other antique books that were tattered so given new life!
