Copic inventory journals

I created these journals to keep track of my copic colors and color charts. I love how it came out, and just wanted to share it with you quickly.
I used two pieces of chipboard for the front and back covers, covered them with K&Company designer paper, and edged them with Antique brass crackle paint. I bound the book together using my CINCH machine. Then I tied ribbon on the binding and added a dangle charm. I paired all this up with Magnolia Tilda with Heart, as she is one of my fave images. I added simple embellishments since I did not want the cover too bulky since it is going on a shelf. I used my Doohickey swirl and doily flower dies and a pearl. Then added some lace and a turquoise silk ribbon.
I colored Tilda with copics.
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R32
Hair - E99, E97, Y23, Y11
Dress - BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78
Shoes - E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Socks - W00, W1
Heart - R83, R85, R81, RV10
I used a dotty background technique for the background behind Tilda.
I added a Tim Holtz Swivel clasp to the binding and added some charms for an added touch.
I am entering this project into the following challenges:
