art journal typewriter sewing

For the next few weekly blog posts for Get Messy, I tried art journaling with old book pages.

I cut some shapes out of old book pages and machine sewed them to the pages. I also used my typewriter for the journaling.

This week I really liked the colour combination of grid paper and red zig zag stitches.

I also loved the sewing on the coffee cup, especially the “coffee” in the mug.

Have you use old book pages in craft projects?
