Small leather journal

I have been following Shirley's Three Part tutorial for making/binding a journal - she has a wonderful website that you might like to take a look at. Super instructions! Thank you, Shirley.
I made a small book using a variety of papers - scrap and watercolor leftovers, with a leather cover. The ornament is made with cardboard and metal pieces glued to a drink coaster, covered with aluminum tape, and painted with Lumieres.

You can see my end-papers here, first time for me!

Your book is absolutley gorgeous!! I can't believe how you made the ornament for the front. Thank you so much for alerting me - it makes me so happy that I did the tutorial.

Daphne, all these journals,here and below, are really nice. I really like what you did with the things under the metal tape. That is cool.
Thanks for sharing them with us on AB group.
