Art Journal Page

Hi All. Nice of you to call in and a big thank you for your visit.

 We had a bit of a set back on Tuesday when the bungalow we were supposed to be moving to fell through so it is back to the drawing board for us at the moment. The up side is that I unpacked my crafty stuff that I had kept and set-up a craft space again which feels better than it did before. No clutter as I got rid of so much and lots of space to craft so far. Not made anything yet but I aim to have a go later today.

At Art Journal Journey this theme this time is Through my Window


I made this digital page using one of Valerie's wonderful photographs that she generously shares. So many wonderful pictures she shows every day and I always find them inspiring--thank you Valerie. 

Hope to get my paints out and make a real mess as this room seems all a bit clinical at the moment.

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx

  9. Awww no Chrissie, so sorry to hear the news about the bungalow, but IMO everything happens for a reason, so it obviously just wasn't meant to be.

  17. Oh, Chrissie, I'm so sorry to hear about the bungalow falling through. I know there's a minor silver lining in having your craft stuff unpacked again, but really you'd probably prefer to get the moving thing done, I'm sure.

    The digi page is wonderful - the photo (I'm assuming that already had that amazing reflective glassy quality?) works so well as a view through a window, broken into panels - beautiful.

  20. Sorry about your setback Chrissie, but things do happen for a reason. I love your digital piece, and you should definitely get your paints out. Clean and tidy is very over-rated xx

  21. Sometimes I think a move is simply to get us to clear out a lot of the past. You'll find the perfect place for you, I know it.
