Egyptian Inchie and Birds Journal Page

Hello All from a sunny NE UK coast. We have a thick frost as well but it should soon melt with the sun on it. Hope you enjoy what you see here today and thank you for calling in.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme for this week is Egyptian.


I found this figure on Google and made her Inchie size then added a couple of gold jewels. What a great theme to choose with so many rich things to pick.

For Art Journal Journey today I chose to do birds. I am really enjoying my hostess month there and new ideas keep popping into my head for the 'Things with Wings' theme. Journaling is such a great way to just be 'you' so I hope to see you on the list of entries with your versions of the theme.


The first thing I did was to lightly print the bird images onto the paper. Then I did a background over the images using Distressed Stains. Next I drew a few musical notes here and there and drew the leaves. When all that was dry I printed on the quote. Back to the birds I went over the shapes with a black pen then coloured them in with Promarkers.

Hope you day goes well

Love Chrissie xx

Wonderful inchie! There are indeed so many richly coloured ideas this week :-)

I saw you were hosting AJJ this month, great theme. I've got to pull my finger out & do a Rudolph day card because, as February winner, I've been asked to do a spot! GULP!

What a lovely Spring-like painting. I like the idea of the music in the background.
The birds are all singing their heads off here.

I would love to join your Things With Wings theme - but time is not on my side at the moment. Fingers crossed that inspiration will strike in a spare moment. Your birds here are beautiful with one of my favourite quotes, and I love the Egyptian inchie.
