Inspired By Pinterest.....

Hey there girls...

For those of you familiar with Pinterest and all the beauty and inspiration that can be found there, you won't be surprised to know I've become quite the Pinterest addict.

My favorite part is all the wonderful craft ideas I see out there.  Many of them that I want to try myself.  The one I'm most anxious and a bit intimidated to try is creating an altered shabby chic style journal/mini book.

Something similar to these beautiful art journals I've seen on Pinterest.

So, to start my artistic endeavours, I recently purchased these two books from the antique store to help get me started.  An old journal/ledger book...

And a very interesting vintage textbook for bookkeeping..

I love how the pages are just perfectly yellowed and some of the text is very elegant.  Who ever knew that learning something so basic as bookkeeping could be made so pretty..


I'm a bit perplexed on how to start my altered art journal, but I know I'll figure it out.  I'm sure it won't be anywhere near as beautiful as the one's I shared with you from Pinterest, but I'm sure going to put my best effort into it.

If you'd like to see more of the journals that have inspired me, check out my Mini Books & Journals  board on Pinterest.  Maybe it will inspire you too..

Until next time !!!
