Lately I have been collecting old books to turn into book purses. 🙂 I have gathered quite a fun collection of covers to remake into purses and someday soon I will show you, my lovely readers, the completed products.
For now, I am having fun with some of the old pages I found in the books, since to make the purses I need to cut out all the pages. To start, I turned a few pages from one of the books into wall art for my bathroom. There wasn’t much for decoration in my bathroom and I thought the images of water-based activities would be appropriate. Scuba-diving, fishing, swimming, boating, etc; will all by featured in my bathroom as I add more decorations.
To make my first set of artwork, I bought some 6×6 inch canvases and I painted them turquoise. Then I pasted the book pages to the canvases using decoupage. After they dried, I asked my husband to help me hang them up next to the mirror in my bathroom!
Check out the results!
