Abundance Collage and Poetry Journal page

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. A big welcome to my new followers and to everyone who calls in to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for your visit.

This time at Art Journal Journey you can do a journal page to illustrate Your favourite poems or quotes.

I decided I would paint my version of the Wordsworth poem Daffodils. I am sure it a favourite poem of many of us as it seemed to be one the first poems we did at school. If you would like to read the whole poem you can find it here.
I asked my husband what style he thought I had painted this in and he said----- if he screwed his eyes up and glanced at it quickly, he would have thought it was a Monet! I think he needs new glasses.

At Collage Obsession this week the theme is Abundance so lots of scope for that one

I did a digital, animated collage for this theme. With my daughter's cats in mind I thought of all the love that a pet can have for its owner.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing. We aren't doing anything special  but I'm sure we will enjoy it anyway.

Love Chrissie xx

Both your makes are gorgeous Chrissie, but it was the daffodils that really stole my heart. Wonderful painting and it definitely has an impressionist style to it, don't think there is that much wrong with hubbies glasses at all!

Happy Easter to you!!!

Fantastic page, love your painting and the poem of course - one of my favourites! Chrisx

Renee Dowling said...

At least your husband knows who Monet is!

I like the fact that you painted your own tree and daffodils instead of using stamps... I can see the daffodils dancing in the breeze.
