Japanese theme digital Page

Hi All. Beautiful morning here and no wind for a change so we are going to the car boot sale later to see what bargains there are to be had. Last time we went we bought an unused foot spa/massager for £3 and it has had lots of use already. Thank you for calling in and big welcome to my latest follower.

Today I have a fusion journal page using a photograph of ours and also a photograph of part of a cross stitch picture my daughter did years ago.

It is for Art Journal Journey where the theme for June is Masculine/Feminine and for Moo Mania and More where Anything goes. Hope to see you at both.

Lots of effects and jiggery pokery in Paint Shop Pro.

This was part of a large tapestry-one of many that my daughter did years ago when she was a cross stitch addict. Pleased to say she has recovered but is now a patchwork and fancy cake making addict--two for the price of one.;0)
Difficult to show all the little cross stitches

The photograph was taken in Peasholme Park in Scarborough. They always have a Japanese theme there and this round arch was right on top of a hill above the boating lake. Sorry you can no longer go to see it because of all the health and safety rules that have stopped us enjoying a lot of the life we used to lead. Whoops I almost fell of my soap box then.

Have a great day and I hope the sun is shining where you are

Love Chrissie xx

  3. Chrissie, firstly I am honoured you want to save some of my sentiments, it's a pleasure and hope you can do it anytime you feel inspired. That's what this is all about. Not about winning a prize in a challenge but winning the love and compassion of blogging friends like you and sharing what we have.
