I finally found the time to finish working on my April Journal for Marion's Monthly challenge. I used her April Digi Downloads that can be found at http://www.apieceofcraft.com.
I decided to Coptic stitch the journal and I love how primiative it made this book look. I used some of Marion's vintage trinkets on the cover and distressed them with patina rub-n-buff and Picket Fence Distress Ink to pop a little color on the cover. The Tim Holtz word plate says "Live in the Moment" which is perfect for a monthly journal.
It is so awesome to look back at each month and see all of the things that have gone on in my life.
here is a video page by page walk through of the journal:
