Inchie Love and AJJ

Hi All. Nice of you to call in. Thank You. My life is still a bit different but I feel we are finding more time to do what we want now and we are a bit more organised with MIL. Thank you for everyone's support.

At Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is love


Just a simple heart with jewels and a bit of embroidery for the word. Bet there will be some amazing ideas as there usually is.


At Art Journal Journey this month the theme is 'Things with Wings' and I was honoured to asked to be the Guest Hostess. It is their 4th birthday there so I hope lots of you will join in with a page or two to celebrate. You can join in as many times as you like and link to as many other challenges as you like as well.

A digital page from me today


I made the fairy in Paint Shop Pro many years ago and think this is only her second outing. The background and the bird design I found free to use online but added my own twists to them both.

Have a great day or sleep well depending on what time you visit.

Love Chrissie xx

Hope you feel better soon, Chrissie.

Congratulations on being a guest star! Well deserved! Your inchie is soooooooo well made, and your digital journal page is inspirational. Power to you in your digital art journey! The Royal Sydney Easter show has announced that as of this year going forward, digital art is a category in its own right and has taken its rightful place in that competition.
P.S. I am currently birthing an idea for Things with Wings on AJJ.

love the inchie! and I adore the PSP fairy. You always remind me that I am underusing my PSP. I do however use it when making patterns and editing pics but I wish I had the ability that you do, as always, beautiful!

Great inchie Chrissie, I'm pleased I'm not the only one who went for a simple heart. I was too tired to think of anything else.

I love that fairy you made on Paint Shop Pro! She fits perfectly in this composition too. Blessings!

First of all.. it sounds good with MIL.. so hope everything will develop in the best way for all of you!♥
Your inchie is so sweet ... love the embroidered word LOVE ... so "lovely"- you may link it to Paper Artsy Challenge as well I think..they call for "Mini Artwork" this time.
You do such a good job here on this digital collage.. I love that you have collected all your selfmade digi elements over the years.. I don't collect my things as good as you ..I would never find them again I guess...lol!
It's great to have you as hostess this month!
We are just honoured the same way like you are Chrissie ( difficult for me to build such a sentence in english- hope you understand what I mean..uups !)
♥♥♥

Lovely inchie and Wow! on your journal page.

Jean Chaney said...

Congrats, Chrissie. I just love that digital fairy and how you incorporated her into that lovely page.

Kia said...

love the simplicity of your heart. It says it all. Your digital collage has me dying with envy. I used to teach photoshop (basics) but hardly ever use it anymore. I definitely should get back into it. The fairy is fab, especially the wings.

Can't do much more on an inchie! Bothe projects are great!

This is a great digital page. I have seen digital scrapbook pages but this is my first digital art journal page. I bet it is not quite as easy as it looks fab :) T x

So lovely to get a chance to catch up a bit, and very glad I made it this far. I love your fairy and the beautiful altered background behind her. Great inchie too! Glad to hear things are more settled for you.
