Journal Page and inchie

Hello Everyone who drops by and thank you for calling in today. Care Home still closed to visitors so MIL will be really fed I bet though she seems to have escaped the virus by all accounts from the staff.

Monday is inchie day and at Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is Island


It would be nice to be on a sunny island under the palm trees I think.

If you go down to the woods-- it may mean you are joining in the terrific challenge with that theme at Art Journal Journey. It is such a great theme chosen by Chris with everyone having their own ideas, some funny and some very artistic. 


I set off being artistic with a messy finger painting of a dense wood. I used a booklet to paint over it had lovely paper and came through the door to advertise our local college courses. I am sure it will make a good journal.


The artistic bit didn't last for long as I gathered all these bears together and printed them out to stick on the page. It took longer to cut them out than to paint the background. I am sure it will be worth it as reminder of all the fun I have had seeing all the pages for this challenge and still over half of the month left.

Can you spot the culprit?

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

What a fun finish to your arty page! And isn't he adorable?! Great design, well worth the fussy cutting (I hate doing it too but a crafter's got to do what a crafter...)

Chrissie I have to say, Wow to your finger painted trees and the Fabulous page. I spotted the outsider, what baby wouldn't want to join in the fun. My motley crew of bears are looking for an invite, to the party. You can tell I love the page.
Its a fabulous inchie, with the island.
