American Vintage Book Upcycle

Hello my lovelies!  It's time for another upcycled book!

I used American Vintage from CCB - it's the perfect collection for distressed projects and grungy displays! Paired with elements from 7Gypsies Junque Packs and your own embellishments, you can turn a regular book into a picture book that tells an old story through Americana, old pictures, and bygone ephemera.

Inside and out, details abound! Rust, metal, vintage ephemera and pictures - a piece of Americana! The eclectic mix of backgrounds, textures, and grunge tells you this book has been places!

Inside, the true adventure begins! Souvenirs from the road and fun details tucked in between layers of a hollowed-out book paint a picture of travel and adventure!
