I have had a film branded Moleskine Journal in my possession for some time - I loved the journal, but not the advertisement embossed on the cover; I knew that I wanted to revamp this in some way but was not sure how. I finally decided on upcycling used stamps, and ordered some inexpensive ones off of ebay.
It was fun selecting the stamps. I loved analyzing and admiring all of the different international postage stamps - I had favorites from all over but especially the UK, the Netherlands, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and the Unites States, both vintage and current. I still have quite a bit left and look forward to the next art project.
I LOVE the way this project turned out. (See the cover and the back of the journal above). This was also so easy to make that even my 9 year old was able to make own journal with an old spiral notebook as pictured below.
It is as easy as that - this would also be fun to try on a portfolio, small, hard suitcase, blank stretched canvas, memory box, etc. I cannot wait for our next project!
