Anyways, so I found someone's old art book in the trash at school. I don't usually dig in the trash, if you're wondering, but this book was sticking out and practically ASKING me to take it. There were a ton of empty pages inside, so it would have been a waste to leave it in there anyways.
At first, I was going to give it to my sister; she likes sketching and started drawing in it right away. Then, I kind of fell in love with it and couldn't stop imagining how great it would be as a fabric covered journal. And by covering it with fabric, I could get rid of the icky paint splatters and pen marks on the cover!
But there were a few things in my way. For one, how would I remove the used pages? I can't just rip them out, can I? Will I have to take apart the book?
Also, there are some papers glued on the insides of the covers. I want to take them off, but I don't want to peel them and rip up the paper. Will I have to risk ripping the paper or just find some new endpapers?
Also, this is sort of an OCD thing, but I just NEED to get rid of the paint on the pages! I'd like it to be completely "clean" on the outside.
(I've got more questions, but I can't seem to remember them right now...)
I'm not really sure how I'm not going to do this, so any help is appreciated!
