I've created the cover for this journal when I first desperately needed some "Me" time and had been asking myself of what else is going to be affected with more changes to come.
Below are some of the close-ups of this cover. I won't be sharing the step by step tutorial as all the elements and design here are results of my emotions and thoughts during that moment.
Oh...by the way, the baby on the cover is me! I'll definitely be sharing more of this journal if I did go to it in times to come. Well, I'm sure I will....
