Recycling !

My recycled book made completely from cereal and shoe boxes ! Inspired by Jenniebellie here I went mostly my own way by using acrylic paints and scrim for the cover,the heart was made with my embellishing machine and a metal butterfly attached,which a friend gave me as the pin at the back was broken.The inside pages are all recycled cardboard, first painted,using masks and sprays,Tags stamping etc.The ribbons I tied into some sequin waste,then used UHU glue to attach. Warning this is very addictive !have now started a mini one lol Some inside pages,not quite finished,I keep going back and adding more as the mood takes me :)

I can see how addictive this could be! I love your journal and wonder if you'll share a peek inside? Thanks for the video link. That was great! Gotta go eat some more cereal....

Wonderful in all its pinkness, Pattie. Threading ribbon through sequin waste is a genius idea.
