I have been inspired by many images lately of artists creating inside old books. I found myself pinning quite a few of them for inspiration later on. I finally decided instead of adding it to the many projects I want to do at some point to JUST DO IT! First let me share with you some of the inspiration that got my creative juices flowing….

So, I finally bit the bullet, and on my way home from work friday of Memorial Day weekend, I stopped at Tim’s Used Books. This is a great used bookstore on main street in Hyannis, it’s actually right next door to where Colorful Creations used to be. Walking past the old storefront is a whole other story that I most likely won’t blog about- makes me sad. But, back to being crafty!! So I picked out a book, its small around 5×7 and my thought process with that is then I wouldn’t need to clean up my studio table too much before being able to dive in HA! It cost me $4 and as soon as I got home I dove right in. My “rules” which really aren’t rules is to JUST play! To use STUFF – i have tons of it, so I’m just grabbing scraps out of my scrap bin, and embellishments off of my Clip it Up. I have no plan, I just moved from page to page and created whatever I felt like. Here is a pic of my book, and come back tomorrow to see some of the interior pages!
