Repurposed Vintage Book Project


Art supplies are expensive…and with the help of the internet, I can easily see the unlimited resources of all things “mixed media”  crayons, watercolor pencils, markers, gelatos, paints, ink sprays, india inks….just to name a FEW!!  …and, I love them all.

I am also naturally drawn to a good book as well as any vintage piece with a history…put the two together and it’s a great match!

One that can be appreciated by my pens, markers and paints and I am happy to join in the ranks of those who are repurposing to create a fun art journal for free:)

Repurposed book : Art Journal

I posted a page from it yesterday, but as you can see, I’ve finished the cover and have added a few more finished pages

Above I used torn gelli plate backgrounds to cover the book along with some of my favorite Washi tapes.  I layered gesso and more torn book pages to make the heart.
