This recipe book was being discarded and since I loved the size,
I chose to rescue it and give it a new purpose and a new cover.
I have been experimenting with marbling paper
and that is where my head was at when I began chopping up the little binder.
I had several sheets of treasured marbled paper
that I had purchased while visiting the town and shops of Venice
and decided this was the perfect place to use and enjoy it on a regular basis.
I also had a swatch of blue suede fabric that blended beautifully
and I sewed it down the center of the paper,
before laying out and cutting a template to fit the rescued acquisition.
Then I began gluing it all down, fold by fold,
and adding new lining to the inside covers as well.
These paper clips became clamps that were needed
to reinforce the area where the fabric was glued down.
New filler paper was purchased,
and I now have a new TO DO notebook to keep all the lovely thoughts
swirling around in my mind in one beautiful place!
I ended up on a creative roll
and continued covering objects with leftover scraps of paper
including a fun sketching pencil!
