Inchie and Journal page

Hi All from a hot and steamy NE UK coast. I expect it is far hotter in a lot of places we aren't too used to these sort of temperatures or this much sunshine. Our house has turned into a sort of warehouse with bags and boxes waiting to be taken to the charity shop, the rubbish place or the recycling place. Difficult to believe how much stuff we have been hoarding that we didn't need at all. Thank you for calling in and making my day..

At Every Inchie Monday this week there is the theme wall.

I did a graffiti wall and tried to be modern with the wording.

Art Journal Journey are doing very well with their Time theme and did what looks like the simplest page ever and you will be thinking I have entered my second childhood.

It actually took me ages to do this as it is the first art I have done on my new laptop. First of many I hope but back to the paint brushes today if I have time.

Enjoy whatever you are doing

Love Chrissie xx


  1. These are just super cool, nice to be taken back to childhood days.xx {The Journey Is The Start  aNNie  my personal blog}

  2. Great pieces Chrissie, love the graffiti wall. A fantastic take on the 'time' theme on the new laptop.
    Sounds like you are making loads of progress with the house move.

  5. I just love the graffiti wall! Very cool :-)


  6. Great inchie, smallest brick wall ever!! I have to say how impressed I am with your technique on the text of your rock, it really looks like it's carved out of the rock!! Awesome Chrissie! hugs :)

  7. Your inchie and page are both super Chrissie!
    Love that you are entering another fab page to Art Journal Journey!
    We have so much heat here ... I am also not used to these sort of temperatures...
    I feel with you!

  8. Yup, gotta stay with the times and keep up with the ever changing vocabulary of the young. Anyone remember when a "winner" was a loser? Nice pieces!

  9. Love your clever inchie and your aj is really cool, like it.
    I do hate moving home and wonder how you are so calm. Hope all goes well and you find fine place soon.
    Hugs, ♥

  10. love your graffiti wall - what a great idea - I know the slang from having taught high school - lol. I like your time piece too.

  14. Cool graffiti wall - you are so 'down with the kids'! I love your page, it's so bright and beautiful! Sounds like you have been so busy with your sorting! xxx

  15. Fab makes, love your inchie xx

  16. Cute little graffiti inchie and lovely journal page!

  17. Great graffiti, but I can't quite get on with "sick". When I was a teenager "well bad" was doing the rounds as the highest form of praise - I wasn't quite on board for that either!!

    Glad to see you're getting to grips with art on your new laptop - your smooth round carved stone is one I'd love to touch in real life.

  18. How can I have got so far behind?…Oh! I know…we have been away at the caravan - painting decking and the like!! I love your inchie and I so wish I could make digital art like you have for your page! Hugs, Chrisx
