A Big Artist Heart

 "People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness.”
Sanaya Roman,

If you've been following this blog then you know that I am a big fan of Jennibellie .  Not only is she talented, she's smart, beautiful and very generous.  I appreciate her sharing her genius with her YouTube followers.  She's like the McGyver  to the art journaling scene.☺  Very resourceful!  Her ideas are always based around working with what you have and recycle, recycle, recycle. 

Not to long ago she made a video showing how she made a mini book and homemade journaling cards.  It was brilliant and I commented as such on her channel.  Imagine my surprise when she offered to send me the mini book just because.  I was like...yeah...Thank you!  I am touched by her generosity and wanted to share.

This is what she sent:
You can get a more detailed look and a tutorial on how she made the journal cards here: Creativity is Not Brought From A Craft Store.

I am simply amazed and thankful for the wonderful artists I've run across since venturing off into Art Land. I guess artist just have big hearts. ♥

I enjoyed taking Strathmore classes this year and look forward to 2013.

Love Affair with Words-Quickie

Art Journal Love, a photo by Nnairda on Flickr.

I am aware of the double entendre. I can't help myself. I really enjoy words!

Jennibellie inspired this page. She's on my blogroll if you want to link to her.  Most of the ephemera on this page was received through swaps on Swapbot. I added a dimensional sticker to the library card  and added journaling. I had fun using my date stamp to date it.  Overall, this was a fun 20 minute page. 

I haven't decided what to do on the opposite page. I received the tag from FLcrafter in a tag swap. Maybe a thanksgiving page? The colors are calling me.

If you've read this far, please leave a comment? What's your favorite word? Mine is Xenophile. ☺

Until next time...
