Journal Page and Inchie

Hello Everyone. Thank you for dropping by on this very windy day here on the UK coast. I am off to the dentist for my next to last appointment so fingers crossed that will be it for six months.

At Art Journal Journey the autumn colours theme is going so well with beautiful pages to see, if you click on a button they are all together and well worth a visit.

When we visited my daughter she had got a few wallpaper samples and this is one she didn't like so I brought the piece home to use for something. Well here is the something and I used a stencil for the cornucopia and paper flower and real leaf.

Every Inchie Monday has Nymph as their subject of the week

Back to my daughter again for inspiration as she used to go fishing and made fishing flies, Some of them were little works of art and this one is a Nymph Fly. The hooks always made me cringe but she did catch some nice fish that we could cook.

That's it for now though it looks like being another crafting day when I get back from seeing the dentist. I have been so often recently we are almost related!

Have  a lovely day

Chrissie xx

Enjoy the dentist - I only have one more visit for a check up in December. Lovely journal page, I have that cornucopia stencil, too, in a stencil book. Thanks for joining us again at AJJ, hugs, Valerie
By the way, nobody likes that new railing along the Rhine, the old one was so much nicer.

Daughters are some of the best sources of inspiration. I like the first piece, but my absolute favorite is the inchie, with it's bright colors and significance. Blessings, my friend!

Sorry about the dentist, let's hope this will be it for a while. Love the cornucopia, looks very autumny. That inchie is so cool. Nice that your daughter inspired you this week.

Stunning fall page, and I love the idea of using a fishing lure for the nymph. Never even thought of that one...clever!

A brilliant "something" making use of that textured wallpaper - your cornucopia looks gorgeous against it. Very clever work on the Nymph inchie.

Which reminds me... I have yet another appointment to make with the teeth torturer... Procrastination maybe! Love your idea of using wallpaper as base for your journal, waste not want not...

Great idea to use the wallpaper, and the fishing lure reminds me of my son, who also makes his own .
