Frame Collage and Journal Page

Hi Everyone from a dark and wet NE UK coast. The only thing showing a bit of light is the snow that fell in the night and I am sure that will soon be washed away. Thank you for calling in and making today brighter for me.

At Three Muses this week the subject is Frame


I used the lady I painted in PSP and framed her to add to the walls of an empty garage picture,. It involved a lot of perspective and I never realised how difficult that would be. I hope the critics are liking what they are looking at.  I found the Dan Brown quote online.

Lots you could make something for Art Journal Journey this time with the theme of Birds, Beasts and Humans. I went with humans today.

I painted the background with a shop front and a pavement then I looked through my old Good Housekeeping book and cut out some pictures. I bought the book for 20p from a car book sale just so I could cut out some pictures to use on craft projects.

The little car is coloured red because my daughter had a little red car when she was about 3 years old. She was in it most of the day and used to leave it all over the place when she wasn't in it. One day a car backed over it and the car was no more. She will be 50 next year but I don't think she has forgiven the driver yet!

Now to Three Muses

Your paintings are superb, Chrissie, and I am in awe of the creativity in your design, especially the great perspectives which I know are NOT easy. Great artwork.

Hi Chrissie, you are so talented with the digital collages, I wouldn't have a clue how to do these. Beautiful collage at the top, the words are fab. The collage in your art journal is also beautiful. I want to create something for the AJJ, great theme :) The masters scared me :) Take good care, Shirleyxx

Great quote to go with your lovely framed artwork in your first offering.
Your collaged page is great and especially wonderful with the back story of the red car.
Those vintage magazines/books/images are priceless aren't they.

What a good idea! I wish I still lived near museums, as it was where I would go to cheer myself up on dreary days when I lived in Washington, DC! I do so love the colors of your paintings and you are right! The bright colors help out a lot on cold days like today!

Outstanding and clever framing!!!

Sue said...

Your framing is amazing Chrissie, I can't begin to imagine how you did this. Your journal page is fab too, I love the red car story xx

So, so clever how you hung your pictures in the gallery - I can well believe the perspective caused a few headaches along the way, but so worth it! Loving the nostalgic feel of your Gorringe's page... I can leaf through their old catalogues for hours - it's like time travel.
