Old to New

        I got this vintage photo album from Etsy!! I wanted to gut it and turn it into a new art journal!!
Here are the old pages from inside the album!
I took the old pages out, and made a new set of papers to put inside the covers. Here are the pages ready for sewing.
I took a class called Full Tilt Boogie. Here is the binding method I learned in that class. The black strips is a velvet ribbon.
A looksy inside the new journal!!
I used nice papers for the outside of each signature, as this binding method is an exposed binding!! I love the way it turned out!! I have 3 more vintage albums I will turn into journals one day!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
Much love
