A few days ago I somehow came across some tribal artwork while mindless surfing the internet (...erhm I mean 'working'). I wish I'd read some of the actual articles to embellish this blogpost with a bit more info besides 'tribal' but I was just so taken away with the colours, and the patterns; I just lapped up the eye-candy during my allocated 5 mins of brain-wandering...besides I had no idea something would come out of it to do a blogpost on
But then this guy came to visit, first as a sketch done from a doggie rescue magazine I receive through one of the charities I support, then embellished with all the bright colours and patterns (though the actually look nothing like the beautifully intricate ones that inspired me so) that so turned my pup into a patchwork pal. I have since seen pics online of other patchwork-looking creations and realised he's not such an original concept =( but that still doesn't change the fact that I loooooooooooove him ~ <3 ~ and how such things as pretty patterns on the internet and photos in magazines can merge then imprint themselves on your psyche to form a something of their own.
I also love how fat my journals getting...
only a couple of pages left =( I'll hate leaving this journal but yes then it will be JOURNAL-FLIPPING-TIME < there's always a bright side =D
Hope you're having a fabulous weekend
Getting inspiration from everywhere is fun...just like your patchwork puppy.ReplyDelete
I'd love to page through that fat journal!
Too sweet! I hope your going to do a video of the pages in your journal(hint hint) :)ReplyDelete
I am new to the Jenniebellie world and I am really enjoying it. Love your patchwork pup!ReplyDelete
You know, Missy, your adorable patchwork puppy would make a good image for said charitable organization on a t-shirt or poster for an event. Just an idea. (Hope Sweepie doesn't get jealous!)ReplyDelete
It looks just like so much fun. Love the colourful puppyReplyDelete

awwww Jenny, that puppy is completely fabulous and agree with the idea that the rescue mission might enjoy seeing him and perhaps using his image for a newsletter. ,-) I love how the patchwork of creativity in your mind feeds in and out from so many resources ... that in itself is a work of art and something awe inspiring! I'm recouping and refreshing a body that was stressed over the weekend's activities and finally able to catch up on things I missed -- SO glad this wasn't missed! Happy Sunday wishes to you and Sweepie, honey!! (((hugs))) for you and share with the furry! :-)ReplyDelete
Love your patchwork pup! Your journal flips are so inspiring...I used to journal a lot but haven't done so in about a year and a half & I just realize how much I miss doing so again. Looking forward to more of your art Jenny! ~CaroleReplyDelete
The patchwork pup is pieces of you and you recognize yourself wherever you go on the 'net. Love him because he isn't a duplicate, he's fully you!ReplyDelete
Love your new "puppy," Jenny! What's more, I love how you got there. Inspiration sometimes surprises us!ReplyDelete
