Currie made this fabulous journal with our bush stamp. I sometimes use this stamp as background, but she did a great job making this one stamp extend itself to fill the entire front. She put eyelets in the book board and punched holes in the blank pages to thread the string through and attach it together. I think the string makes a great embellishment as well as a fastner. She also distressed the edges of the paper in one of the layers and used Copic markers and Bic Mark-it Ultra Fine Line to color in the bush. She sponged the background for more of the distressed look and stamped the Just Because in each of the corners.
