binding for 3" thick 12 x 12 album

up-date on this binding it works well if you have spacers between the pages.I used half inch strips of medium weight chipboard and punch holes and put in between each page protector. made the bind much more sturdier. this is my 2011 album 3 inches thick so it did need something to compress all the pages to keep the binding sturdy. all this is 1/4 inch elastic that opens well. I used this instead of the posts only cause I have tons of elastic and the seam binding i think next i will try sewing some lace into it for a little more poof and cuteness to it. I like the way it works when i tied the ends i tied them inside the binding so it would look neat on both ends. Hope you try it out for me it was a way of saving money and using what i have. Thank you for taking time to read. I hope you get a chance to try this binding i think  you would be happy with the results.
I sewed seam binding to elastic. Thought I could use for something but couldn't find a good use for it till I used 4 binding and also want to use for a journal closer. Ill have to do it then post that. Later

Journal pages and stuff that want to come out of my head.

The butterflies kept evolving gypsy disign for cricut. copic markers coloring. stamped one with text and the other with a lace stamp. used liquid glass and lindy's embossing powder for the tips, a bit of glitz on wings i thing i am just about happy with these butterflies but still need something.
 This page started off as paper swap for DEDE's  paper swap on ustream. started to make 4 lost one then there were 3 and only worked on 1. not quite happy with this either need something. so went looking for techniques  to add to this page, when i got caught up in Dede's ustream and heard she had prompt videos.Went looking for past video's well it ended up being to late and fell asleep. so will finish that project of making prompts for when i get stuck like this. mean while back to this post. this page still needs something so this will be on my mind till its completed to my liking.Then.....
Been working on this paper and still trying to find my style of art. trying different techniques for me, at least they are different to me. Enjoying letting my mind go where ever it wants. I still feel like my pages need some things more. some tweaking is needed to project a finishing touch of me. everything is so different but one thing leads to the next i refuse to stop my self cause of "I'm not sure" issues. I am going from one step to the nest where ever it leads me. I just seam to keep getting blocked by the what else it needs i see one thing this needs already and will work on that. this one has melted store bags glued on paper and painted on with acrylic paints an napkin and a face from magazine. the face needs work it needs blending i see it know. lol funny how i cant see it while writing and maybe some kinda border. well hope I'm not boring you to much. definitly feel this blogging will help me figure me out. I am my own great unknown. sounds like a title for this page. hmmmmm. TTYL! thanks for following.

art journal page

Kept getting kicked out of ustream while painting this page. Inspired by my kids club house just changed up the coloring and added grass since we don't have any. Made my own. Still think I like scrapbooking best but think I'm ok at this too.
