There's something about cereal boxes. I have always loved the way they feel. The predictable sturdiness of them. But they always landed up in the recycling unless the board was needed for a school project or something. That was until I discovered art journaling.
To be more precise, I discovered Jennibellie! Her name alone provides a delicious expectation of something glorious, but she actually has a fabulous YouTube channel by the same name, which contains hours of videos teaching people how to 'art journal' using recycled materials and rubbish.
She makes the most incredible journals out of cereal boxes, using paint, stencils, stamps, beads, bits of cardboard and I don't know what all. These journals then form the 'canvas' for you to record your best memories and favourite quotes, while adding more bits of this and some of those.
In fact, the journals are so gorgeous that you don't even need to embellish them. And all made out of cereal boxes.
