An Altered Book

I was at Ikea at the weekend buying some much needed storage for the craft room when I came across a hard back drawing pad fab thick papers  all for a whole £1.The cover was a bit garish but I thought I could change that...Well I have been busy cutting and sewing and have made a removable cover for my newly named Journal. Not sure what I will use it for yet,It is a good size 11inches x 10inches. but I will let you know when I do.I still need to dcorate the inside too.xxx
