Tag and Journal Page

Hi All and a happy weekend to you. Thank you for calling in and any comments that you leave are always appreciated.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme this time is Wings

I made the painted background and coloured the digi image in Paint Shop Pro. The wonderful digi stamp was from Beyond the Fringe years ago. I am not sure if Carla still does this sort of thing as I just popped to her blog and her artwork now seems quite different. I printed it out and mounted it on a large tag that I coloured with markers. Then I stamped a few winged things on just for luck.
A Joanna Sheen small Bee a Cart-Us large bee and some Personal Impressions birds on a branch.

Now to my last project this month for Art Journal Journey where Yvonne has been a wonderful host for the  'in my garden there is' theme. A thank you to Valerie and Susi for always commenting on my efforts and for making AJJ such a nice place to visit.

This is our newest plant. Heaven knows what happens to it along the way but it does look interesting.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx
