Journal Page

Hi All. Hope your week has been a good one and that you are looking forward to the weekend. Thank you for calling in and for the comments that you leave to brighten my day.

At Art Journal Journey I am the host this month for a Winter Wonderland theme and I am really enjoying making the pages and visiting all the blogs of the people who have joined in with us. Hope you will be one of them as there is still lots of time to the end of the month. Also at Moo Mania and More you can enter any thing at all for the next 4 days so I am going to add this to their wonderful collection. Stamps and Stencils have Oh So Blue for this month so this will fit there as well.


I had such a great time painting the background in Emulsion paint that was in small tester posts. It blends so well and covers any paper-this is just a piece from a very thin paper journal. I drew what I thought a snow bird might look like and cut it out to fly above the snowy mountains. It felt freeing somehow and made me smile. Not sure my own artwork usually has that effect :).

Love Chrissie xx

  6. From digital to a hand drawn snow bird, is there ANYTHING you can't do? I'm so glad I found your blog and love your interpretation of a snow bird. It is wonderful, and I love the font you used on the sentiment. It's one of my favorites.
