Monday Again-Inchie and Journal page

Hi All and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. A special welcome to my latest follower. Thank you for dropping by everyone.

At Every Inchie Monday this week we have the unusual theme Nose

I just had to add a moustache as Vic has always had one all the time I have known him :)

Art Journal Journey has Post and Postage as the theme for July and there are some fantastic ideas from many artists who have joined in. I do find that doing these challenges makes me think at a tangent whether I do a digital page or paint something.


Afraid my page is a bit sad today. All along our bit of the coast the the sea has taken away huge chunks of the past and I used a photograph that was taken just a short distance from where we live. The photograph was altered in Paint shop Pro and I did add the old postbox which isn't there but could have well have been not so long ago. If you walk along the beach below the cliffs now, you can see parts of old pipe work, cables etc, sticking out of the cliff face which is now just soil that was once fields. 

Have a good day everyone

Love Chrissie xx

Love your nosey inchie! The journal page is beautiful, and it seems to be the same problem everywhere these days, the changing climate is eating away the coastline, really sad. Thanks so much for joining us again at Art Journal Journey and have a great day, hugs, Valerie

Fun nose, especially with the mustache. Yes, sad changes everywhere.

Kia said...

love your mustache nose. Love your journal page - such seamless manipulation. Beautiful picture. Was not aware of coastal erosion. Must look into it. Very sad that your past is being washed away.

Craftyfield said...

Love your altered picture, coastal erosion is very sad and quite a bit frightening for people living on the coast. Every Monday a new inchie and they cheer me up!

I just love how you do your inchies, it takes a lot of creativity to do something on such a small scale! Great take on the postage theme! hugs :)

Was wondering what you were going to do for bling on a nose and I like how you did this, Chrissy. Sorry to hear of the sad reality of coastal erosion where you are. Your visual memory is lovely. Have a brilliant day! c

Love your inchie Chrissie, great fun, and your page is fabulous. It's really sad that our coast line is wearing away - specially for the people who live there xx

Meggymay said...

A super inchie, love how you added the mustache.
Its a fabulous page, I remember all the publicity when the coast line started eroding and houses were lost to the sea, sad nothing seems to be done to protect what still remains.

Fun inchie! Such a shame that erosion exists but then over the years it has also given us wonderful landscapes....

Hi Chrissie, A nose theme is interesting, especially for an Inchie but you worked it out very well ! Your 'altered' photo is amazing, although it's a sad erosion, your artwork is gorgeous. Take care, Shirleyxx

Very fun Inchie! The page is really fabulous, love the scene you've created with your altered photo, and especially love the old postbox.
Hugs, Mar
