In November 2014 I met Mary for the first time in real life in Charleston, South Carolina and she gave me one of the altered book journals she makes from recycling old books. You can see them here on Found on Brighton. It's smaller than the size I would normally use and so I hadn't used it. Mary had used a copy of The Tale of Two Cities and it seemed the ideal choice to use as a travel journal for my trip to the two cities of Palm Bay and Toledo!
I used some of the pages and papers Mary supplied. I also used some scrapbooking cardstock I had in my stash and some more we bought when we visited a great scrapbooking store in Sandusky.
I've made a flip-through video of the finished journal. The journal got so thick that I put really large bookrings through it but they looked out of proportion with the book so I used twine instead.
Thanks for stopping by.
