Inchie and Journal Page

Hi All. Just been for a walk to our North Beach and it was lovely to sit out on the sea front drinking a mug of coffee. Lots of people here for the day enjoying themselves. Thanks for dropping by today.

At Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is negative

I didn't have any ideas at all so just went for the simple. Great ideas already from other Inchie makes so do pop along and visit their blogs and make one yourself if possible.

Now to Art Journal Journal where the theme this month is Flower Power

I decided to try another page of my black journal. For the background I just scribbled with oil pastels in various colours. The flowers are a visit to my childhood as I used to draw heart flowers on everything. Easier these days as I have a heart punch so can cut lots out to make flowers and leaves of various designs. The shapes were all white and so stamped over them in various colours after I stuck them to the page.

That's it for me today--off to watch some more of Tour de France. I really enjoyed yesterday as I knew almost every inch of the route as it passed through Yorkshire and ended up in Sheffield where I was born.

Hope your day is going well

Love Chrissie x
