Journal page and Inchie

Hi All. I hope you enjoyed the weekend. We had very mixed weather here so not a lot of walking but lots of sport watching and that is great for me.

At Art Journal Journey this month Gill has hosted the theme Nature's wonders and there have been so many entries to admire. You can see them all here in one place so do go and have  a look. Still a couple of days left to join in as well.


I started on my new journal with this simple page. The background is painted in pale shades though they don't show up too well on the photograph.

The flower is one from our garden that I photographed and added effects before printing it and cutting it out.

Every Inchie Monday has petunia as the subject this week


I drew the flower then cut it out to stick on the inchie


I knitted egg cosies this weekend while I watched sport

 All of these old eggs cups cost just £1 for the lot from the car boot sale and I am going to put chocolate eggs in them. More stuff for the Cat Protection to sell for funds.

Have a wonderful day

Love Chrissie x

You always use such clever and varied techniques to make unique pieces. Those egg hats are really cute and will sell well for charity.

Such a fabulous post I hardly know where to start! Your egg cosies are obviously going to be a hit to boost the Cats Protection funds! I love your journal page - the Crocosmia flower is the one I always need reminding about it's name - my Dad used to despair and I still have trouble! I do love your inchie petunia - great drawing! Hugs, Chrisx

A wonderful post Chrissie, I loved your beautiful flower page , we have a large patch of those flowers as well. always a joy to see growing.
The inchie is sweet as well, I always wonder how you can do so much in a small space.
The egg cosies are fantastic, these will be a hit in the Cats protection shop. They do so look like knitted cup cakes.
Its lovely and warm here today, wet yesterday.

Your egg cozies are so cute Chrissie!
You transformed that Crocosmia so beautifully (I only know the name because we "used" to have them in the garden and we lost them).
Your page is simply lovely with that brilliant quote.
Still very hot and humid here in Virginia.
Fall will be here before we know it ;-)

Your flowers are so lovely. I adore those egg cozies! I would buy one for sure! I've made tiny hats like those for my small dolls but never thought of putting them on an egg! Creative!

Fabulous inchie Chrissie, the egg cozies are brilliant - I bet they will sell very quickly.
Your journal page is really lovely and the effect on your flower cool!
Lewis didn't do bad in the end did he - a fairly eventful race.
Have a lovely evening - Gill xx

lovely flower themed blog - great petunia inchie - also love the photograph and your egg cozies are totally awesome. I'm currently crocheting amigurumi so know what working small is like

I am glad I made it for your weekly inchie. This one is beautiful I'm always in awe of your drawings.

Your journal page is fantastic. It always seems better if you can use your own photos, too.

Now I've got to tip my hat to your egg cozies. They are truly unique and will be welcomed at the cat shelter with or without chocolate eggs.

Love the flowers! The one you took a picture of is beautiful! I have never heard of egg cosies and I think they are cool and different. I hope they make a great profit

Such a gorgeous first page in that beautifully textured album. Love how you created your own flower image from the photograph. The egg cosies look a treat, and I like your tiny petunia too.

Lovely page! It's fab that the pretty image is taken from a flower from your garden. Love the texture of the album too! Pretty inchie and your egg cosies are so cute! Such a fabulous fund raising idea! xxx

WendyK said...

A lovely page and inchie. The egg cosies are great and I'm sure they will sell. It's a shame you don't live close, I have loads of spare wool. Are you needing any, is it worth me sending you some in the post ???

chrissie said...

Thanks for the offer Wendy but I have lots of woll at the moment as my daughter brought a carbootful last time she came to visit. I could do with more hours in day though lol

Love Chrissie xx
