Out with the Old? Remade into New!
Once I finished school I was left with a ton of books from various literature classes. Now I love books, but I am being buried under the stacks of school books that, though some of them were loved, I will not be reading again. The bookstore will only give you pennies to sell them back and I don't have anyone that is interested in reading them...so what to do! Make ART!
I took a few of my books and cut them apart and began designing small art pieces around the stories. It took quite a bit of trial and error to get the looks that I wanted, but the results were worth it. I put them into small (5x7) shadow boxes that allowed the designs to pop. I am thrilled with the results!
I have plans for a few more of my books in the future so stay tuned to see what I come up with.
