Finished Recycled Book

This is my third book I started during Your Stuff… Use it! month.  For this art journal I used some craft paint on news print, and then used that to cover some packaging (I believe it was a pizza box top).  For a while I have been collecting advertisements that come in the mailbox.  They are mostly for carpet cleaning, real estate, dance classes in the area, dry-cleaning, etc.  I kept them because they come in various sizes (from post card to about a 6×12 inch) and they are a nice weight (card-stock-ish).  The draw back, is they are glossy, so might be a pain to work on when the time comes.  I bound these with my current favorite technique.  (Muse said use red and yellow sock yarn with blue and teal covers. Who am I to argue?)  That was about it for this one.  Not too complicated… Kept the cover really plain, for now, but strung some beads off the end.  If you look closely you can see shells, teal and coral glass beads, and some of my paper beads.  They make me happy to touch, and to hear clink together.  =D
