Journal pages and alteration

Second post from me today as I have been enjoying crafting while the sun shines. We did go for a walk into town but it was so cold in the wind that we hurried back again.


First my alteration for Rhedds Creative Spirit where the theme for each month is something you have altered--there may a twist sometimes but not this month

I have fancied altering a spoon for a long time and I found this one for 20p at the car boot sale last Thursday

Here it is now all dressed up with a beautiful GeckoGalz image from the Artsy Jewels sheet and a few beads, ribbons and flowers. I really enjoyed making it.



At Art Journal Journey the theme is Moments of Happiness


When I am happy it makes me want to dance and sing so I tried to reflect this on my page. Did a shaving foam background
 and printed or stamp the images 

At The Craft Barn we have the words Change and Truth this time. You can chose both or either for your quote or song.


I chose the word CHANGE and the song title 'We're Gonna Change the World.' This was sung by the wonderful Matt Munroe and I hope this link will take you to him singing the song. It always makes me feel happy even though it was recorded in 1970.

My journal page has a background that I made from a picture of charity marathon event and the words here and there show all the ways we could help to change lives-some easy and some not so easy.

Hope you day is going well

Love Chrissie x

I came from the Craft Barn, but fell in love with the spoon. It would have cost a FORTUNE in the US. Of course, I also enjoyed seeing your take on these lyrics, too.
