Old Books, New Life

I love old books and have about a million (well, maybe not quite a million).  Some I read and re-read, others I just love to touch, feel the pages and look at the covers.  So when I first saw an old book made into an art journal, I knew what I was going to do with some of my collection.  These are the first two I "converted".  A small zoo book and an old Hardy Boys adventure.  Removing the front and back covers and keeping a few of the inside pages, I added sketch papers, bound them with my Zutter and now they're ready for new art!  Fun and easy.

  1. I showed this blog entry to my son. His comment..."I used to have a Hardy Boys book like that!" Should I tell him where this one came from?
