I apologize for the crappy pictures. This was my project... long stitch journals to sell at WNYBAC. I lined the leather with a decorative paper, which contrasts the white text paper really beautifully. I made four long stitch journals in two different styles. The flowers are the inside of the brown/purple, and the green is the red/black. They are currently living in a cubbyhole at the WNYBAC gift shop.
