Journal Page

Hi All. Apologies for lack of visits to your blogs but life has rather got in the way just at the moment. Thank you for calling in and for your lovely comments.

Today I have two journal pages for Art Journal Journey where I am hosting a Winter Wonderland theme. Still almost 5 days left if you want to join in with us. I had these pages ready made so thought I would post them today just in case I haven't time again before the end of the challenge.

This is the back  of an old calendar, I got this idea from Susi. I painted it in white acrylic then drew in charcoal and used more acrylic for the images and the sky.

This is a digital page though I used a stamped image for the centre piece and altered it a little.

Have a good day all

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Beautiful pages Chrissie, don't worry about visiting, just get well again and hope life soon throws less problems your way. Thanks for your support at Art Journal Journey, hugs, Valerie

  2. These are both beautiful. I love that wonderful silence of snow; it is such an amazing thing. Hope life settles down for you.

  3. Two beautiful pages dear Chrissie!
    Get well soon Sweetie!

  4. Beautiful Chrissie!! All your gorgeous winter wonderland pieces are making me long for snow even more. We still have not a flake in sight...and I'm in Canada, so that's especially strange! hugs :)

  5. Wonderful pages, Chrissie.
    Hope you are well and back here soon xx

  6. Great texture from the paint and charcoal - and the windswept sky is particularly beautiful. Lovely digi page too - really capturing the sparkle of a snowy winter's night.

    No need to apologise about visiting - I'd far rather you spent any spare time you have taking care of yourself or finding some time at the craft table - whatever you need to do to get through what life is throwing at you. Hugs to you.

  7. Beautiful winter-pages! Hugs, Marjut

  8. Both pieces are really lovely Chrissie!
    Everyone is having such a great time with your Winter Wonderland theme with me included.
    We are knee deep in snow here in Virginia so I was a bit distracted for a long weekend of digging out.
    Sending all good wishes your way.

  9. Two beautiful pages Chrissie, it would be hard to pick a favourite.
    Take care of yourself Chrissie.

  10. Beautiful pieces, both of them Chrissie, I can't decide which one I like best..... Hope you are doing ok, - and never any need to apologize! You are always such a faithful visitor, I really just hope you are ok.... sending big hugs!!

  11. Both pieces are fabulous and very different Chrissie! The first one has a great texture and an adorable design.

  12. I'm running behind since I was out all day and evening. I can appreciate how life gets in the way of computer time. I hope you are feeling better soon.

    These are both stunning, but I'm a big fan of trees, so you probably know the one I like best. I also like the texture you got on the one with the trees. But of course, since I'm no good with digital, that one also impressed me.

    Feel better soon.

  13. Two fabulous and very different takes on the Winter Wonderland theme.

  14. Beautiful wintery pages Chrissie. It's very busy in my part of the world as well, take care, Shirleyxx

  15. What fun and beautiful projects. Love the sentiment on the first one and all the texture you've achieved, very creative ideas.

  16. I love both of these Chrissie - I love how someone has cleared the snow from the path to the house - what a great little detail to add! Your digital page is such a lovely dramatic scene! Hugs, Chrisx
