fireworks batik journal

sometimes i fall in love with a fabric, but that doesn't guarantee that it will look good on a journal (kinda like when i go shopping and that "to die for sweater" looks better on the hanger than it does on my body).   today i got lucky...i think that this batik fabric is the perfect fit for this journal!
rich in golds, greens and amethyst, this batik fabric reminds me of a dark sky filled with fireworks.  i sewed five signatures of hand-torn italian velata paper to the inside using a bright yellow waxed linen thread.  the two green buttons on the front are slightly mis-matched in color, which bothered the perfectionist in me at first...but then the pollyanna in me said "hey, be glad that you had two green buttons instead of only one!".  i just love pollyanna, don't you?!  :)
