Journal page and Face

Hi All. Hope you are well and enjoying whatever you are doing. Thank you for joining me at Jumbled Crafts where I haven't had a lot of time recently to add much at all.

Art Journal Journey will soon be at the end of their Autumn Colours theme and it has brought out the best in many people I think. Can't wait to see what AJJ come up with on Tuesday when the next theme will start.

I made a digital background then took a picture of a card I bought at a craft shop a long time ago. I think  it would be nice to print this out and pin it on a my craft room wall.

At Kim Dellow Show Your Face she has been showing various artists and encouraging us to try their style. I am way behind and I think this is style from a few weeks ago.

I used chalks and charcoal to do my version of a Marie Laurencin.

Have a lovely day and I hope you stay safe if the forecast for your weather is anything like ours.

Love Chrissie xx
