Book Binding Try

Well, sometimes you just have to do something you've not done before and this is the time!  ; )  I decided it would be fun to try a very simple book binding technique.  

I saw these wonderful digital paper patterns from WeAre3

and a video from Nik the Booksmith and got 'er dun! 
I included a variety of papers/cardstocks for different types of journaling: mixed media, notebook, graph, ledger, cardstock, etc.  

Material List

Digital Cardstocks:  Wild Flowers from WeAre3
Various papers and cardstock for pages
Heavy CardBoard (Recycled)
Scrap of Denim (Recycled from an oooold pair of jeans!)
Scrappy Tape 
Liquitex Matte Gel
Heavy thread (actually reed making thread) and needle

 Sharing with these challenges:  
CRAFT:  Recycled
Stinkin' Inkers:  Recycle/Reuse
Fab 'n' Funky:  New ~  Made a NEW art journal using a NEW technique!
Mod Squad:  Flowers - Spring has Sprung
