Handmade Art Journal From The Book The Winged Horse

Handmade Art Journal From The Book The  Winged Horse

Found this lovely vintage book, The Winged Horse, and turned it into a new art journal. The end papers are green toned mythical scenes. It's nice to find a use for some of the art tablets have sitting around. 50 pound paper would not be a first choice for a serious drawing but it works well for a journal.


  1. Hello Marie, I really love the look of your recycled book journals, I would love to see you blog about how your create them, step by step. Do you just find old books that you like and then remove the covers, add paper and take to a spiral binder store (like Office Max, etc)? I tried to see if you had a post about how you did it, but I couldn't find one... that could be my fault though. :) Thanks for the inspirations!

  2. Thank you. I'll do a more detailed description, with photos, next time I make a book.
