Twine Binding Envelope Mini Album

I always try to think about new and easy ways to make mini albums. The faster I can make them the better. One of the things that takes a long time to make is the cover and binding mechanism. Personally I’m not a big fan of rings and/or bind-it-all although i use them often. I want to have a fast binding mechanism (like rings or Bind-it-all) but professional looking like a full cover binding. So I came up with a solution…Twine! It’s not entirely my idea, I saw the use of twine for binding on the internet but I took it a step further and upgraded it a little. All you need to do is create a cover from three pieces of chipboard and attach the twine to it by wrapping the twine on a strip of chipboard.

Watercolors are one of the easiest and fun ways to art journal. Although it can be intimidating to some people because it seems a lot more complicated than it really is. All you need is some water colors and a water brush. You can use a regular brush and dip it in water but I think using a water brush is easier.  Just try it on a piece of scrap paper and you’ll see how fun watercolors can be. I started my page with no plan or idea, I just knew I wanted to play with watercolors. Try to start with two colors and see how you like the result. Don’t mix too many colors or you’ll get brown mud.
