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!

Jungle Cat Journal

I just finished up making this journal which has a variety of papers for writing or drawing, along with some vintage papers from my collection. The cover is heavy fabric with a jungle print, lined with vinyl and hand-bound.
I am really enjoying making these books - whether paper or fabric based.

Here is my rendition:
