Journal page and Collage

Hello Everyone. It is heavy rain and a cold wind here today so I am pleased that I will be watching lots of snooker and doing some crafting at the same time. Thank you for dropping by and hope you like what I made for today.

Another journal page for Art Journal Journey where the theme for May is Sea.

Paper Piecing Sea side page


All you need is a comfy chair and these simple things


The book was an old holiday catalogue and I cut out lots of sea coloured bits of paper for the sea pieces, then sand and dunes pieces. Next bits of different sky and the wonderful beach hut image. I cut some shapes and then stuck them all on my journal paper to make the scene.The whole thing was sprayed with a fine blue mist to add a bit of texture. It was a lot of fun to make
Today is the start of the snooker finals and the finish of the Tour de Yorkshire bike race so I have another idea for a sea page--hope it works.


Next I made a digital collage for Collage Obsession where the theme this week is Paris.





The picture was one I found on Google but could well have been one of ours as we were in Paris about 20 years ago when all the blossom was out at Notre Dame The damsels were a free download but the effects and framing were my own ideas.
I love the song by Oscar Hammerstein so added a bit of that as well.

Have a nice day everyone.

Love Chrissie xx

You do have good ideas. The holiday catalogue has been turned into a great seaside page. This would make a good workshop with a pile of magazines and a set of themes.
I like your Paris collage too, it goes so well with the song.
It's raining and cold here too, but there is plenty to do inside.
