Create a handmade journal!
‘Make your own idea book : create handmade art journals and bound keepsakes to store inspiration and memories’ by Arnie and Carlos is a great book, which I recommend to all crafters. It has wonderful illustrations, is well set out and has a huge number of ideas using recycled materials, paper, corrugated card, colour and fabric, to name but a few.
What I enjoyed most was the step-by-step illustrations. This is its greatest asset and would be ideal for those of us who are more visual creators. For those of you who do not use your sewing machines quite so much anymore, here is a new use for it.
