Collage and photographs

Happy Weekend  All and thank you for calling in today.

Not mcsh crafting from me this week but I have managed to rearrange my crafty space and throw a few things away that will never be of any use. Wonder why we save these things?

For Art Journal Journey the theme is Collage with some journalling and it is so good to see all the ideas that people have. Rather like visiting an Art Gallery. All the projects are grouped together and if you visit AJJ there is link to them so no need to visit all of the blogs--what a great idea that is.

I found an old programme in a pile of stuff and it was from a tribute concert we went to see. There were pics of the real Freddie Mercury in the programme so I painted a background and stuck on some the pics. Then I did some stamping with a Chocolate Baroque stamp

Just thought I would show you a few photographs. They were taken on the top floor of Boyes which is our largest store here in Bridlington. We go up there for coffee and toasted teacakes some times as it has great views over Bridlington.

All around the new part of the cafe there are shop windows with old fashioned good in them and also there is a small museum with all sorts of things associated with sewing. Lots of old photographs and pictures around the walls as well so lots to see while you have a snack.

This is a moving model which
is quite strange if you aren't ready for it

Hope you have a good day

Love Chrissie xx

  15. I'm a huge Freddie fan - one of those truly gifted and extraordinary people. Love your tribute page...

    Great to see the photos of Boyes - what wonderful windows and window displays. I always find those lifesize models a bit uncanny - it would certainly unnerve me if one of them moved as I went past!
