Ephemera Journals (11)

I just cannot stop making these notebooks/journals. I guess I need to start selling them… although they take so long to make that I’m not sure I could price them within reason.

The covers of the ones above, came from a vinyl 33rpm LP record album cover. Again, the interior pages are an odd conglomeration of used” papers  (conference handouts, magazine pages, sheet music, etc.) that add interest.

Some of the covers are from other salvaged cardboard. For example, the knight on horseback notebook below, came from electronic product packaging. (The “Hollywood” one is an album cover.)

I also like using Girl Scout Cookie boxes!  (The “Stardust” and “Music” notebooks are both from album covers.)

The large and medium-sized ones below are from record album covers. The small one is from scrapbooking cards (Melody Ross “Soul Words” cards, a discontinued product I picked up at my local overstock-and-closeouts type store.)

I have about a dozen more covers cut. I think I will do some with plain pages so that they go a little faster!
