Journal Page and Inchie

Hi All and happy new week to you. Thank you for calling in today and for the lovely comments you leave here for me.

Art Journal Journey have the theme If You Go Down in the Woods. (Just had to change to the Journey word as I always seem to type Journal Journal) I wonder if anyone else does that?

As Vic and me always seem to seek out woodland walks I have made us into the Green Man and the Green Woman


I changed this photograph to black and white then colour, spray painted it in Paint Shop Pro


Every Inchie Monday  has Spaceship as the theme this week

A bit simple but I based it on one my son made from a kit in 1970s

Have a great week everyone

Love Chrissie xx

A beautiful woodland scene, a great idea to turn yourselves into the green man and woman. Lovely inchie too.

Good idea to change and colour on the own photo. You made it very clever and it looks so nice.
The inchie is just great.
Have a happy day xx

I love what you have made on this page Chrissie - super!
Thank you for joining us again at Art Journal Journey!
Lovely inchie as well - I didn't know that you are a mother to a son as well.
Have a great new week dear Chrissie!

Sadly no more a mother to a son as he died in 1999 Susi but wonderful and very happy memories for me.

Love Chrissie xx

That is sooo cool - who would have thought to use a photo and recolour it and adapt it - I love it and the wording too. Your inchie is a super idea, brings back memories of the hyped up space era of the 60's and 70's.

You are too funny Chrissie! This is such a great page, I love the little squirrel of course!! Great puzzle piece too! hugs :)

Jean Chaney said...

I like the collage you made and I remember my brother making a "spaceship" like that one too :)

Margik said...

Fantastic page, Chrissie, I love the way you transform your photos into a digital work. The inchie is so cute as always!
Hugs, Mar

A fabulous alteration of one of your beautiful photos. Mr and Mrs Greenman look like they are enjoying a day out.
A super inchie Chrissie, and a lovely memory for you to have.

I love the work that you do with PSP I am jealous of all the work you do with it. I also love the inchie it is so '70's

Great memory niche, and love what you have done with your photos.

Lovely picture, the transformation is both fun and creative. Nice idea to include your son's artwork on the inchie for a very personal touch.

Nicely collaged woodland scene arranged with such interesting wildlife! Sorry to hear of your son. I remember building the various 3-D paper puzzles, especially the lunar landing module with all its fiddly little bits. That was soooo 1969! Have a brilliant day! Cheryl
