About

Making beautiful things out of beautiful pages

A few years ago I was on vacation and stepped inside a small bookstore, which is one of my favorite things to do. On one of the front displays was the book "The Repurposed Library" by Lisa Occhipinti. The pictures on the cover fascinated me. I've been a book lover all my life--due in no small part to my mother being a librarian--but I had no idea you could make such beautiful, unusual things from old books.

I actually walked out of the bookstore without buying the book, but a couple of hours later I was still thinking about it, so I went back and bought it after all. I'm so glad I did. When I got home, I tried making several of the projects and they all turned out great. Then I started looking online for other cool things you could do with books. I was AMAZED at how creative people were and the beautiful things they were making.

I bought a few tutorials, played around until I developed my own style, and now here I am making my own book art.

Thanks for stopping by Reading With Scissors. I hope my art delights and inspires you.
