Sea Creatures recycled booklets by Ellie Knol

Today two recycled booklets I will use as mini art journals, from me, Ellie Knol.

I´ve used the Whale Wishes and the Fish Diet stamp sets.. 

I dissembled the books first, and got rid of both the original end papers inside as that was torn by doing so... 

... leaving me with the cover plus spine intact.. 

.. I covered the outside by adhering part of an A4 gelliprint with muted pink and greenish colors (using a Magenta stencil in case you wonder) .... 

... I brushed some matte medium to the surface to give it some protection...  

.. stamped onto it with StaZon blazing red ink..

.. gave it some extra color with green distress ink.. 

.. added some white with an acrylic marker... 

.. and reassembled the booklets using the second and second last page of the book to use as the new end papers on the inside...

Hope you like it and give recycling a book a try.. it´s fun..
