Mini Journal - Coptic and French Link Stitches

This mini journal was made for a friend's birthday. I used the traditional Coptic and French Link binding method instead of SeaLemon's version that I used here and here. Since this journal is small (3" x 4"), I wasn't concerned about the cover and signatures not being structurally stable. 

I'm in a bookbinding/journal making zone lately and I'm loving it!

Light Blue Journal with Scallop Duct Tape - Coptic and French Link Stitches

This is my second attempt at making a Coptic and French Link stitches art journal using  Sea Lemon's YouTube tutorial. My first journal using this method of binding is here.I'm still working on mastering the correct stitch tension but I'm happy with the outcome. I used a discarded book cover as is since it was in good shape and has a beautiful blue color. The edges where I removed the original spine is covered with pastel scallops duct tape. The finished size of this journal is 5.25 inches x 8.75 inches x 1 inch.
