Cover:



Spine:





Inside pages, one with star book fold:

That binding technique is BEAUTIFUL! I still haven't mastered any type of stitched binding, you have done a wonderful job, and I really love the sun stamp on the front.....this journal is very "Fiesta"!

Thanks! It really feels different from other blank books I've made since this is such a mix of colours.

Awesome! The binding looks great. The colours complement the cover and the sun motif.
