Sweetest Story Ever Told outside covers
This one-of-a-kind journal is upcycled from a rescued copy of  "The Sweetest Story Ever Told" by Kathleen Hay.
I embellished the original cover with my original pen and marker drawings of dragonflies.
I bound the two signatures of pages (a term for groups of pages folded together) to the cover using a cross variant of long and kettle stitches.  These are visible on the spine.
