Digital Journal Pages

Hello Everyone from a very wet NE UK Coast. Thank you for calling in and I hope you like the artwork today. My brain isn't fully back to crafting mode yet but I am a lot better than of late. MIL now in a care home for a short stay to give us all a bit of a break- not sure she is too keen, though I haven't been to see her there yet and have left the visiting up to Vic.

At Art Journal Journey Hazel is hosting the challenge this time with the theme 'If Music be the food of Love'

I was watching a programme last night about a Caravaggio painting that has been digital reproduced as it had gone missing way back when. I remembered that I had this picture of his saved(not the one in the programme) as I liked it so much. I also love fruit and music so this page is for me really.

June at Dezinaworld15 has another Cheeky challenge with the theme Time Machine.

I chose one of June's freebie backgrounds and two of her freebie images to make this Collage. Amazing what effects can be achieved with Paint Shop Pro. Thank you June for all your hard work with your images both free and paid for.

Have a lovely day all

Chrissie xx


  1. Both collages are so lovely! The idea that fruits and music are love is fab! Like in paradise!
    Great to hear that you feel better and better - hope you get completly well very soon Chrissie! Hope with MIL goes everything well now - sounds great that she stays in a good place - it would be reassuring for you and Vic! Finger crossed that everything will work out fine!

    Happy Saturday--sending some sun to you as we have fully sun and nearly 17 degrees in the sun now ....

  2. Love both of your collage today. I love fruit and music, so this is something for me! We do have a lot of machines that save us time these days, and you have showed your machine here in a new light. Have a nice day, in spite of the weather, hugs, Valerie - and thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey again!

  3. Fabulous digital artworks Chrissie, especially love the way you have framed the first piece (and great font) and the lovely grungy effects in the second piece.
    Glad to hear you are feeling better and hope you have a nice relaxing weekend.

  4. Beautiful created design, with super colours chosen. Love your digital work of art Chrissie.xx..xx

  5. Fabulous Chrissie! Love how you did the layers on the first one, very dimensional! Glad to hear you're getting back to normal. hugs :)

  6. Love your fruit piece. It feels so much like Italy. I think that would be a great place to be right now, away from the snow of winter. :)

  7. Hi Chrissie, i love both of your creations, and i really love your imaginative take on the time machine and the play on words. Fabulous my friend.

  8. Yes it has been a bit wet today hasn't it, it's also been extremely windy here too!! Good job we have our crafting - lol. Lovely makes xx

  9. Two fabulous pages Chrissie, I love the time machine, a great take on that theme. Glad to read you are feeling like crafting again.

  10. I was especially impressed with the image of Caravaggio's painting because it actually captured the fruit in the Shakespeare inspired theme. I've been trying to figure a way to add fruit to an entry, and voila, you did it!

    Of course, as a person who has created an entire altered book about TIME, I really enjoyed the time machine. I laughed at the sentiment, too. It's a wonderful entry.

    So glad to see you are feeling better. Your humor shows it, as does your lovely collages.

  11. Great pages. Very different but both interesting.

    Take care and become well soon,
    with love xx

  12. I love your time machine! Clever!

  13. Two fabulous pages Chrissie, LOVE the stitch in time machine, brilliant.
    Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better.
    take care,
    Avril xx

  14. You are so clever with the digital collages!

  15. Love your digital art! Err, that time machine - looks especially useful! Hope your MIL settles well for the time she is there! We were lucky that my Mum liked the care home where she lived! Hugs, Chrisx

  16. My favourite is the second page, as you say, the effects are amazing !

  17. Two wonderful works of art - I love them both.
    xxx Hazel.

  18. Oh, if only there were such a thing as a stitch in time machine - never mind the housewife, what about the crafter? More hours in the day please!

    Love your Caravaggio page too - shouldn't all pages be for oneself?!
