Journal Page and Digital Collage

Hi All and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts.

I am staying in today to wait for a delivery of some fencing so filling in the time with crafting--what could be better really:)

At Art Journal Journal this month the theme this time is circles and there are some wonderful entries already.

I bought an Art Journal with black pages and now I wonder why as it is difficult to know what to do on them. I painted a background on white paper then cut it into pieces to stick on my black page. Next I looked for things that had circles. Some from my odds and ends jewellery, some from the button box and then some craft Candi. The white lines join the cirlces as a circular walk. Now to think how else to do art on black backgrounds :(

At Three Muses the theme is Positive Affirmations which needed a bit of thought. I made this digital collage.

I started out with a photograph of a bee on a flower that Vic took in our garden. I then added things that I found positive and encouraging. Loved the bee so much I selected it from the background and added it again to the top layer. The music layer is the music for the song Always Look on the Bright side of Life written by Eric Idle of Monty Python Fame.

Hope your day is going well

Love Chrissie x

Oh no - now I will be singing 'Always look on the bright side of life' all day - can you hear me over there?!:) Love your circle page, great idea with the jewelry and buttons, and the collage is most interesting!
Just got back from my treatment at the hospital, so need to rest up a bit, next session is on Friday. Enjoy your crafty day! Hugs, Valerie

Hello Chrissie, I do like your different circles, what a good idea and you are right, circles are everywhere. I also like your picture with the Bee, very nice layering and inspiring words.
If you have any metallic pencils or paints they come out well on black paper.

Both pages look super cool Chrissie, your first one has a great medieval feel and your second one most certainly sings a great tune! Hugs, Ira x

The circles are fabulous - so clever to use all those buttons and jewellery pieces. And I'm blown away by your positivity collage - been feeling not very positive, so this is a fabulous kick in the pants!!
