Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

Recycled....repurposed......whatever it is called, it is fun!
One day, my friend Marla was at work and people were cleaning out STUFF. She found these wonderful heavy green 5 x 8 alphabet file dividers and knew they could be made into something wonderful. She quickly grabbed a few sets and off she went.
I was lucky enough to receive a set of these from her and made an art journal with paint, stamps, collage, etc. I did all the art work before binding the dividers together using a single page Coptic binding found in Keith Smith's book. The long threads and the 6 needles just about did me in, but the book did get finished. One day I will try this binding again to see if I can do a neater job!
