Journal page and card

Hi All. Hope you week is going well and thank you for visiting my blog along the way

At Art Journal Journey there is still time to be inspired by a song hosted by Linda. Thank you for a great choice.

This will be my last page for this theme as I have lots to do this weekend. I have really enjoyed making my pages and seeing all the others as well.

These are some of the words from Beyond the Sea which has been sung by so many artist for years and years. I love to hear it as La Mer sung in French.
I used an old photograph that Vic took from his Uncle's window when the sun was going down over the houses opposite. I digitally painted on the sea and added an image of a cruise ship.
The original photograph

At Crafting by Design they have the theme Let's Hear it for the Boys and Men

My daughter gave me lots of kits she had bought from Create and Craft years ago. She also gave me precut cards and envelopes to fit as well as silver and gold card. I am working through them all to make cards for a charity she is involved in and they have a summer sale. Only about another 100 to go!
 I thought this would fit the theme nicely.

Have a nice day

Love Chrissie xx
