These are my latest endeavor......Journals from VINTAGE BOOKS:D I purchase so many vintage books for the images within......but, only use a few of the covers! SO, I decided to use the covers to make personal journals for the little shop I love, RECYCLED ROSE!
First, I simply cut the covers off......darkened the edges.....collaged the inside with vintage ledger paper and Modge Podge-ed the entire surface.
Added some embellishments and stamping!
Next, I drilled holes in the covers to accommodate the loose-leaf rings (found online).
Then, I had to find appropriate paper for the inside pages...so it was off to Michael's where I found some nice cardstock already cut to ALMOST the right size.
Once cut to the right size.....papers were punched with holes.
Lastly, I collaged several of the interior pages with images that meshed with the cover.
Tied on some ribbons and WHALLA.......a Personal Journal (staying GREEN too).
