Salvaging a Book + GIVEAWAY- Guest Post from Mou Saha


Hi everyone, Mou Saha here from Creating Keepsakes magazine. In spirit of green crafting, I had been salvaging an old book into my current art journal. Here’s a spread from that book.

Here are my steps in visuals and captions.
Hope you enjoyed my little process tutorial and would give it a try.
If you like upcycling the stuff of life, you might enjoy the 4-week workshop I’m teaching at Big Picture Classes called Lift Me Up!
-GIVEAWAY-
Please leave a comment to this post about your favorite thing to upcycle and ONE person can win a spot in the workshop. For more chances of winning, please check out my blog. Winner will be announced on 4/18/2012.
Good luck J

  12. To be honest I haven't much experience with upcycling things, but I would love to learn it ;-)
    Less than a year ago I started art journaling and last month I made a little journal myself out of upcycled paper and cardboard. I enjoyed that really much!
