About ScrapPaperCircus

Sales 217
On Etsy since 2018

Upcycled Book Arts Studio

Bel Mills is a collage artist and book designer inspired by second-hand, vintage and commonplace paper. In her Northern Virginia studio, Scrap Paper Circus, she uses old books, magazines, maps and office supplies—among other materials—to create one-of-a-kind journals and collaged artist books. At Scrap Paper Circus, reusing old paper is not just a method, but also a muse. As Bel tells her students, second-hand paper frees an artist from worrying about mistakes and allows experimentation without the agony of “ruining” precious materials. This outlook infuses her books with a feeling of possibility, whimsy and delight. You can find more of Bel’s work at scrappapercircus.com, as well as on Facebook @scrappapercircus, and Instagram @scrap_paper_circus.

Frequently asked questions
May I personalize items that don't offer personalization?

In most cases, yes! Please ask in the notes section and I'll do my best to accommodate you.

Do journals arrive wrapped for gift-giving?

Yes! Journals arrive wrapped in brown paper, tied with colorfully striped baker's twine, and embellished with a small pennant bearing my shop name, "Scrap Paper Circus."
