Thank Goodness For Paper & Glue

I started working in this glue book some time ago. I'm glad that I had kept everything gathered together like some vintage papers, collage images and patterned papers. Add some brown ink, scissors and glue and you have an easy activity. One couldn't ask for anything better when recovering from surgery.


I added to the inside cover.  Just some tissue paper, a sticker and one word, "Natural".
Another easy page on the left hand side.  An image of bathing beauties, some blue floral print and a couple of numbers.
I love old script so that was used for the background.  Some torn paper scraps, bird images, egg stickers, done!  The moth on the left was just pretty so I added it but don't know if I will do anymore on that page.
And a couple of final images, but still need to add more.  The point is, it's nice to have this old ledger and be able to do some simple collage work.  It's very rewarding, especially when you glance through the whole book and is easy on the body.

Be sure to create something today and have a great week! xoxo

Hi Rhonda, It's a great idea to make a pretty gluebook from such a ledger. You might have inspired me what to do with the one I just had talked to you about :-).
Hugs to you,
Julia

Hi Rhonda, I looked at my ugly ledger again and I think the pages are even too ugly to be used as backgrounds for such a gluebook, LOL. Well, lesson learned. I'll never again will buy a ledger online without knowing how the inside looks :-).
Hugs,
Julia
