Tag and Journal Page

Hello Everyone. A lovely morning here after all the rain yesterday. Thank you for calling in today and I hope you like what I have made.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme for this week is Tape Measure or Ruler. Good to know the week before what the theme will be for the coming week as it gives me time to think about it and make the tag early. 


I used the Tim Holtz measure stencil then coloured the he tapes with Distressed ink. The quote I found on Google and the own is a picture of my knitted tea cosy. He turns up on all sorts of crafty things.

Will link this to our Tag Tuesday challenge as well where Valerie has the theme Anything Goes so any tags you make just add us to your post.

Art Journal Journey have Gill as their host this month and the Elegance and Grunge theme is proving to be a winner for sure with some terrific ideas.


I did the elegance bit first with the ladies from DezinaWorld 15 where June kindly provides lots of free images for us to use. Then I made some grunge brushes to show how quickly elegance can be messed up. I know if I get dressed up I spill something all down my front--well maybe that's just me.

Have a great day all. We have 6 for lunch today so I had better get started.

Love Chrissie xx

  5. Lovely tag and journal page Chrissie and great quotes on both.
    You definitely have some wonderful grunge and very elegant ladies today - thanks for joining in a AJJ. And as for getting dressed up and spilling something down the front - that's me too, often every day and usually when I'm day dreaming :)
    Have a great day and enjoy your lunch - hope its a bit cooler day too for you... Gill xx

  8. Wonderful tag and journal page! I'm in love with your tea cosy and if you knitted it yourself I'm totally amazed too. Your ladies are so elegant and your comment about splilling something all down the front made me smile - I don't think it's just you as I have a couple of tops and when I wear them I always always spill something down them (grin!). Enjoy the rest of the week and have a great weekend! J :-)

  12. Commiserations from a fellow messy pup! I love white for the summer but I can't wear it for that reason... You've found a great quote to team up with your owl (never seen him before, he is such a hoot!!!) and the stencilled rulers. Your elegance and grunge make is equally clever, quite a difficult theme I think!
