No-Sew Watercolor Art Journal

I saw this youtube video for making your own no-sew mini-journal

and decided to make one for myself.  It is ADORABLE!  Even tho it’s very small, different pages open up to different sizes, which makes it quite usable.

Tied closed, it’s 2.5″ x 3″.  It uses one sheet of water color paper.  The cover is made from some left-over Mat Board, but I’ll probably use cardboard next time.  The Mat Board is covered in an image torn from an old magazine.

    Quite imaginative – the combination of folded pages.

    Great project. A great way of making use of left over pieces of watercolour paper.
