Journal Page and Time Flies

Hi All from a sunny but frosty NE UK coast. Nice to see the blue sky and sunshine again here. Hope it is nice where you are and that you have a great weekend. Always lovely to have you drop by-thank you.

Art Journal Journey have the Winter Wonderland theme for the rest of the month so I hope you will join in with us as I am the host there for January.


The background is done in chalk and the figures are from Gecko Galz I think. I do thrill to the first snow of winter but I am not thrilled when it lingers and becomes slushy and frozen

At Mix Media Monthly the theme is Time Flies.


I had a few background waiting to be used for something so thought I would join in this challenge as it is a blog I hadn't visited before until one of my old blog mates reappeared on my blog roll and she had made something for this challenge.
For the clock I used two Chocolate Baroque stamps and a clock face image I found on Google. I made the flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and guess what else ?

I cut them from a baby wipe that I had used for mopping up paint.

Have a beautiful day

Love Chrissie xx

Lovely journal page for AJJ Chrissie, thanks for all your support. Fun piece for time flies, glad you have discovered the many uses of baby wipes. Enjoy the good weather as long as it is there, it's cold, wet and windy here. Hugs, Valerie

Hi Chrissie
Wonderful winter wonderland piece - sunny here today also - my hubby said we had about a minute of snow yesterday but I missed it.

Really love your 'Timeflies' and the fabulous idea for using baby wipes - I never make use of these other than cleaning stamps but will see them in a different light now - thank you .... Wishing you a lovely weekend Gill xx

Fabulous projects Chrissie, I too use baby wipes a lot. Love your sentiment and it made me feel young as when we went to New Zealand recently and saw the snow on the mountain tops then landed on a glacier I was in Heaven...like a kid, so your sentiment is gorgeous.xxx

Glad you have got some sun today. We have snow right now, and it was freezing rain before that. Now its looks a lot like your piece. I love the background you drew!

What a lovely post - and yes, we've had some lovely weather too for the last couple of days. I love your chalky landscape for the vintage figures, and the Time Flies piece is fabulous... what a lovely mop-up wipe and it makes a gorgeous flower!

You make time flying by quickly look attractive and I can assure you that I no longer like the flight of time - somebody slow that clock down.
Your art journal page is gorgeous ---- love the figures.

Goodness. What beautiful mixed media art you created today, and both so very different. I love the diversity of your art, and really like Time Flies.

Grey skies and white ground over here... Winter wonderland but without the lovely vintage images! Had to laugh at your baby wipe flowers, the ultimate recycling... Both projects are lovely though.

That is a wonderful mop up background and lovely piece you created with it Chrissie!
Love the quote from Ladybird Johnson along with your really lovely collage.
I am feeling quite a bit of excitement here in the Washington DC area as we may be getting our first snow of the season and it might be a doozie. We'll see how good the weather guessers are this time around.
