Handmade watercolor journal

Today it rained all day which gave me the opportunity to make a new watercolor journal.
 I used a pad of Strathmore watercolor  paper cold press 140lbs.  The pad comes with 12 sheets.  The pad board that is in the back of the Strathmore pad, I used as my book covers.  I cut the book covers to measures  8.75" L x 6" W. 
I did a variation of the long stitch book binding.  The middle portion of the journal spine was the final step to complete my journal.
