Recycled Record Cover Journal
I've always loved records. I still have a small collection of my own. I've seen a few record covers turned into journals and have wanted to give it a try.
I also love to thrift shop and go to garage sales. On a recent visit to a thrift store, I found an interesting cover to an Anne Murray record. I thought it would make a great recycled journal. Anyway, here is what I made. Tell me what you guys think. Any constructive criticism would also be appreciated.
