The sea and symmetry

Hello Everyone and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts. We really enjoyed our Spa day yesterday though I am aching in places I had forgotten I had. Not sure if this means I should do more exercise or give it up altogether. The main thing was that Vic really enjoyed it and it was his birthday surprise so that was good.

I have done a digital offering for the Sea Challenge at Art Journal Journey

The background is one of our photographs taken in Bridlington Bay with the coastline in the distance. I used a lot of effects on it as usual. We do have a very active yachting club ob the bay.

I chose two famous lovers to illustrate the song. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton playing Anthony and Cleopatra--so 2 sets of lovers really.

I used the first verse and the last verse of Robbie Williams version of Beyond the Sea

This week at Tag Tuesday the theme is Symmetry. I was stumped for a while then I found things in an envelope that I had cut from old birthday cards. I made my tag from one of those.

Others had wonderful ideas and I feel humbled to have opted for something so simple.

Hope you have a great day 

Love Chrissie xx

  7. I'm very impressed at what you have done with your photo, it looks like a painting.
    It's very romantic with the young Burton and Taylor and the old song.

  8. Beautiful Sea collage, your digital artwork is always amazing, I have no clue how it's done. I love your tag, great colours. I have been working on a Seaside journal page, hopefully I can get it to a point where I can join in the challenge at AJJ. Take care, Shirleyx

  10. Gorgeous work today Chrissie, I am loving your diagonal tag!! I'm in the same boat as you today. We spent the day at the zoo and when I woke up this morning, I could have sworn rigamortis had set in because I was stiff as a board!! HAHA! Glad your hubby had fun though. hugs :)

  12. Two wonderful pieces Chrissie, love the sea page and how you use your own photos, something I will have to try soon I think. Sounds like you had a good Spa day, and Vic enjoyed the surprise.

  13. Nice digital piece. I love the old photo images of Taylor and Burton put on your own beautiful photo. Glad you had a nice spa day too. Always fun to do something a little out of the ordinary.

  14. Perfect pair with the stormy romance.
    Your collage has put the song in my head now too = thank you!
    Lovely card you made too.

  15. Envious of your spa day! If it hurts I think it means you need to go more often! Both your journal page and the tag are wonderful.

  16. Oh yes, double lover trouble - could there be a better pairing (or two better pairings) to reflect the stormy oceans of love?! Hope the spa aches pass soon!
