White Fused Plastic Journal - Recycle Reuse

Another book in my journey to make something beautiful from the bin (waste bin that is).  Vibrant and tactile, this journal is a keeper.  Fused plastic takes time and patience but knowing that I'm keeping these pieces from the landfill, or worse, destroying our already suffering marine wildlife makes the work so fulfilling!

I've designed a unique closure for this book and made the tie or wrap out of the handles of the bags.  Again, nothing wasted!  Maybe that'll be my new moto. *wnk* 

It just begged for brightly colored stitching, so out came Joey's favorite - Lime Green - cord.  Matching bookmark.

The process creates unique pieces.  Even with the same materials, this book can NEVER be duplicated exactly.

OHHH!  This journal was featured in the Etsy Treasury Color me Joyful!  Sweet!
