The 'Mind Wide Open' challenge

This is my entry for the MWO challenge on Gails blog. She'll be uploading all the entries tomorrow and then the voting shall commence. I'm really curious to see what everyone has done - the only requirement was to use the image she provided but other than that , you could go to any media your little heart desired , so there should be a lot of variety.
I decided to make a journal cover for myself. Actually , I'd planned on having the whole journal done darnit , but the last few days I haven't been able to get to the table , so I guess this is really a WIP. All I have left is to get my pages together and drill a few holes , and I'm pretty much done. I want to be able to flip the cover all the way around to the back if I'm working/writing in bed , and I also want to be able to rearrange pages if needed to keep my thoughts together on a specific piece. The post-it thing hasn't really worked out.
So this is my first journal , and for now everything's going in it. We'll see how that works and I'll change things up down the road if I need to. Any expert journallers out there can feel free to shoot me suggestions or advice - I'm all ears lol.
