Art journals, anyone???

A pile of vintage car dealer ledger books:

What do they look like to you?

To me, they look like the perfect art journals!

I found them at an estate sale in Seattle a few weeks ago. You wouldn't even believe me if I told you how much I paid for them...
Soon, I'll post some pages I've made in the one I chose for myself.

Have a lovely and creative day!

Hey Kiddo! Love the pile of journals! So sorry to read about your house! I know everything happens for a reason, but still must be awful tough!
Hang in there

it's always nice to stumble onto what you consider a treasure when the seller is just glad to be rid of it! You are both happy with the sale, what could be better?

This is very cool. I am so glad that someone else thinks that useless things aren't actually useless. My dad is a huge "horse-trader." He is always buying things that no one wants and making them into cool items. One think that i think you would like is one time he took a bunch of old snow skis and mounted them together to make a bench for our back porch. My favorite pic of yours is the notebook one. I hope you keep posting new pictures so i can keep checking in. Good Job!
