Collage and Inchie

Hello Everyone. I hope you enjoyed the holiday and have now time to settle back into crafting. Thank you for finding time to call in. All your good wishes for my MIL seem to have worked some sort of magic as she has now been moved to our local hospital and there is even talk of her going to her own flat before too long.  This has made life a lot easier for us and I have time to craft again.

At Art Journal Journey there is still the rest of December to do a collage with some journaling.


I got a bit carried away and used a mop up page that seemed to give me ideas when I studied it carefully. It had the shape of a face with some hair so I used a white pencil to make an outline. It was great to be able to create a face with so few lines and it is something I have admired for ages when others do it. This left a big space at the bottom of the page so I stuck on something I made for another project that didn't work at all on that project but looks ok on this.

Now for Every Inchie Monday where it is the last inchie for this year


The theme this week is NEXT. I know what is next for me on EIM as the 2016 list is already posted so I just have to decided what form my inchies will take for next year. All of them have been on felt this year so that I could stitch them together.



Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

  19. How smart you were to do all your inchies so they could be sewn together for a keepsake! I also love that style of doing a face in an art journal. I have yet to see a face in my slop pages yet though LOL! Happy New Year, Chrissie!

  20. I just love your face - I too admire that ability to capture an expression with just a few lines, and I think you've done it so well here. And my word, don't your inchies look fantastic all stitched together - what a brilliant way to display them.
    I'm hoping 2016 will bring happier, gentler times for you.

  21. Oh your inchies look so good all sewn together - wish I could do something similar but some of mine are on back to back pages in my sketchbook and cutting one out would mean cutting up another on the back of the page - I could use the photocopier I suppose - too much work! Looking forward to your creations for next year - Happy New Year.
