Brave the Wild
                  Wind outside covers

This is a one-of-a-kind journal upcycled from, you guessed it, a paperback romance novel, "Brave the Wild Wind."  This, of course, is the original book cover with only the ribbon anchors and stitching I needed to hold the journal together added.  What more could I do to enhance this cover after all?

Brave the Wild
                  Wind open pages
The pages of the journal are made from green, marbled paper and are each hand torn to the size of the book.

I bound the pages into the book cover using long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine over ribbons, which serve to anchor the cover to the book block (a term meaning all the pages of a book as a whole).  The book block contains five signatures (a term for groups of pages).

                  Wind inside quote

The paper for the inside front and back covers is a copy onto cardstock of my original watercolor and ink painting.  I also use this paper to reinforce the spine.
