Altered Vintage Book Journal


I decided to switch gears last week and work on something I hadn't done in a while. I love art journals even though I don't work in them very often and thought it would be fun to alter an old hymnal I had on the shelf. I'm still playing with the details but the front is just about done. Next I'm going to work on the inside and prepare the pages for writing (should have done that first!) xo
