Journal Pages-painted and digital

Hi All from a very sunny NE UK coast. A very Happy Earth Day to Everyone. Hope the weather is good where you are. Thank you for calling in to see what I have made today. Firstly I will tell you I have made a real mess. I was having another go at the shaving foam technique and got the stuff everywhere. It was fun though.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is favourite poem or quote and at Moo Mania and More they have the theme butterflies this time so I will enter this at both challenges.


The background for this is alcohol inks on UPO paper. This is the first time I have used this paper and it does have lots of possibilities.
The stamps are from Joanna Sheen and Hobby Art and the quote I found on Google

My digital piece is for Three Muses where the theme is a book cover

I couldn't resist doing a fun one. The background I made from brushes in Paint Shop Pro and a leather effect. The image was from Google.

Off now to collect my new, new glasses. I hope I don't lose anything else especially when I only just got them a while ago.

Love Chrissie xxx

  3. Love your humorous page about " Anna Conda"...lol and your amazing and lovely page on Yupo paper! I bought this kind of paper a time ago and yes ... it is amazing .. but I tried it out not enough yet - as it was quite expensive I don't dare to waste it..
    always the same with the frugal crafter inside me!
    Thank you so much says Moo Mania & More and Art Journal Journey dear Chrissie! Have a great day!

  25. Yes, I have seen the likes of Barbara Gray doing foam backgrounds on TV and all neat and clean but when I did it I needed a shower afterwards! I love your garden page and love that quote! Great book cover idea!

  26. Your journal page is beautiful and I love the snake book cover - a great name for the author. It's a good job I don't mind snakes, we have four in the house at the moment.
