ART JOURNAL...JENNIBELLIE STYLE -WOYWW eeee


As mentioned previously...


 I made an art journal - pictured above and below.




After seeing Jennibellie's art on Flickr...


I found & started following her blog.


I always love what she's up to...





And when she made a tutorial for an art journal...



Using food boxes (in my case, cereal)...




I was more than slightly excited!




It took me a couple months to get around to making this project...



But I am over the moon happy that I did!!!




I just adore the finished product...



And can't quit marveling 


that it's made out of a couple Corn Flakes boxes!!!




I realize I'm overloading you with pictures...



But I'm gonna do it anyway...


Because I'm just so delighted... 




And thrilled...



With how it turned out!!!




Now that I've got that off my mind...I'm off to get some sleep!

Oh...I almost forgot...I'm linking to WOYWW!!! Go see!

and, I think there's enough pink in this journal to link up to How Sweet The Sound,s Pink Saturday...so I did!

  2. WOWWEE!!! I'm so happy you included so many pictures, have felt like the little bits I've been seeing were like the teasing trailers & finally I get the movie lol It's absolutely gorgeous Annie!! I loooooove it! It makes my heart sing (& my head go a little giddy) to see such beautiful creations made by helping saving the planets resources a little. Remake before recycle I say. I'm so happy I ever 'met' you & that I can inspire you a little as much as you do me, much love :) x

    1. Hi, its me again. Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorrel is a girl dog and has been living with us almost 12 months now, and yes, she does go everywhere with us. All our holidays now are arranged so she can come too - think she (and me) would pine if we left her and went on our own.

    2. We've been thinking about and pining for a dog but really don't think one would fit in with our lifestyle. Anyway, yours is beautiful!

  18. Lovely, and so pleased you had so much fun making it, and even better how in love with it you are, rightly so, well done, happy WOYWW

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ouch! I just wrote a whole message to you for my internet to crash :( I was saying that I have taken to heart that some people (you included dear) are 'missing' me online a bit and so have resolved to blog about the things I am in the middle of making, as well as the final projects. So tomorrow I'm going to post about my journal projects currently in progress and was asking if you would mind me showing my readers your beautiful journal & link back to this post? I would so love for them to see what another artist can achieve with cereal boxes xx

  22. Hi Julia. Thanks! I'm going to show it to my 2nd Saturday group to see if they want to make one. I'm sure it's a great project for your students too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank Loopy! I know. I can't help myself. I do love it. Is that really conceited or what?!? (Sophia would say...what?). :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Jenniebellie! I HAVE been missing you online...to the point of wondering about you at odd times of the day...even before but especially since I was using your tutorial. I would be honored and thrilled if you show your readers my journal. :) Thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you Corrine! It was hard…but I managed to leave a little space in there so whoever ends up with this journal can actually use it to write in!!! And…YOU definitely would know about exuberant color!

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a totally cool project. I love that you upcycled cereal boxes. It is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks so much waggonswest!!! Now my hubby is concerned that I'll need an extra room for all the cardboard I'm collecting!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Never too many pictures! It’s eye candy! I can see why you’re so pleased! It is phenomenal! Don’t be surprised when I come steal it! (They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I disagree, pilfering is! LOL)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks like you had even more fun with this one. Gloriously colourful!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you Robin! If you come to pilfer it - all the way here to Colombia...I'll GIVE it to you!!!

  31. If i had made this, there would have been twice the number of photos. It's quite , quite gorgeous and that Jeniebellie is a clever gal indeed. How long did it take...it's the sort of thing I never get round to..love it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks Julia! I do have three times the pix...but restrained myself! :) I worked on this while other projects were going on...you know...I let it dry while sewing, etc. but it was a total of small bits of 7-8 days.

    ReplyDelete
