Coptic Stitch Monster Journal

Another Monster Swap item!!! Remember that giant slew of kids book envelopes I posted a looong time ago? Well, I have a lot of leftover book covers and they're just perfect to trim down and re-cover to make nice, solid new journals. For this one, I trimmed some covers down to about 6" x 6" and covered them with paper. Then I painted, embellished, etc, and sprayed it down with clearcoat to keep everything smooth and durable.

Then to make the outside binding look good and colorful, I used colored cardstock for the outside of each of the six signatures. The rest of the sheets on the inside of the signatures are just plain printer paper. Then I coptic stitched it all together. Tada!

Now I'm off to paint more monsters... Happy Tuesday
