Inchie and Journal Page

Hello All. Hope you are all safe as the weather here and there in the world seems to be very mixed at the moment. Thank you for your visit and I hope you enjoy my makes for today.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme is Lumberjack this week


I went for this picture of the Michael Palin version of a lumberjack that first appeared in Monty Python's Flying Circus way back when.

The Archictecture theme at Art Journal Journey set my mind thinking of the days when I used to love painting sunset pictures.


I painted the sunset picture in acrylics then added the quote in Paint Shop Pro

Have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie xx

Definite change in the weather here today, very windy, grey and dull. How do they come up with these topics for your inchies, and even more so, I am amazed how you manage to find something so fitting each week. Love your sunset page and totally agree with the quote xx

Your interpretation of lumberjack is nice... super .. you have always an idea for a original inchie!
Love your painting with this fantastic quote Chrissie! Definitely so true!!!
Thanks a lot for joining Art Journal Journey again!
Have a great day... here it's murky and about 10 degrees ...
cosy than it was the last days - but we had sunny days althoug it was cold.
Autumn and winter definitely arrive I fear.

Love your roof line pirouette and your quote.I think we all need to remember that more often. Seeing sunsets is better for the soul than a lot of things we think we need to do! Why can't people remember that?

Love the quote on the sunset page Chrissie, love sunsets and sun rises - not that I see many of them!
Great inspiration for your inchie - you'll have me singing 'that' song all day now.

I love your sunset painting, Chrissie...it makes a great background for your quote. And I would imagine that watching the sunset would be an important thing to do...important for the soul! :)

Enjoy a lovely day, dear one,

Great work, Chrissie! It's Wednesday, so I'm going shopping and later I'll have buttered scones with tea! HA! What fun! We were just in Albuquerque and the sunsets were fabulous--the sky there is just so BIG. Have a brilliant day! c
