Inchie and Collage

Hello Everyone from a very sunny NE UK Coast. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts.

At Every Inchie Monday this week we have the theme explode to think about

I'm afraid my mind went a bit blank on this one and this is all I came up with :(


Then at Collage Obsession there is Monkey Business as this week's theme. I just love getting my digital brain working again after years of not using it very much.


I found the picture of the monkey and child on a nature site then I worked over it with various brushes. I also found a folder full of brushes I had made years ago with saying so used two of those and a simple frame to finish off the collage.


Love Chrissie x

  20. Lovely digital combination of words and image, Chrissie... with that lovely feathery texture running through it too...

    I think we're all allowed the odd blank moment faced with a prompt which doesn't fire our imaginations, but your inchie looks pretty explosive to me!
