No Easy Circle outside covers
This is a one-of-a-kind journal upcycled from the novel, "No Easy Circle."
I preserved much of the 1970's art work on the original cover but enhanced it with a cut out and line drawing on a copy of my original, "psychedelic" watercolor painting.  I also used decorative yellow and white ribbon as anchors
for the stitching that binds the blank journal pages to the cover.

open pages
  I hand tore the pages using a wave-pattern ruler to the size of the cover from medium-thickness white paper.  I used a cross variant of a long stitch  and kettle stitches for the binding.  These stitches are visible on the spine.  The book block (a term meaning all the pages of a book as a whole) contains four signatures (a term for groups of pages folded together).

inside front
I used a copy onto cardstock of my original watercolor and marker drawing to line the front and back covers and to reinforce the spine.  (Yes, giving you a full-in-the-face splash of 1970's-like "psychedelic" color!)
inside back
On the last page is my unique signature medallion, which also indicates the year I made the book.
The journal has an attached beaded ribbon bookmark; the beads are of course in "psychedelic" colors!
