Moon project and Journal Page

Hi All. Hope your week is going well and the weather is nice where you are. Thank you for finding time to call in at Jumbled Crafts.

Moo Mania and More have Moon for their theme this time. So it more Moo-n Mania.

 We have a full moon here at the moment and Vic took some photographs while the sky was cloudless. I used one of them to make this digital piece.



Strange how there is definitely a man in the moon face from a distance but not close up.

Art Journal Journey have the theme Nature's Wonders with the lovely Gill as  hostess for the month of  August. So many wonders people have found for the challenge and I am sure there will be many more to come by the end of the month.


I went for a forage under the big trees along a road near to where we live and I found lots of things left behind from last Autumn. I stuck them onto a mop up page as I wanted them to be the focal point on this page. There were lots more so I didn't spoil the chances of lots of new trees growing.

Nice day for a walk here with cloud cover for a change.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Love your pieces today! That moon pic is amazing, so true about the man in the moon face. Love the bits of real nature you included, I think I'll grab a few leaves this year when they fall. sending hugs :)

Wow, oh wow. I haven't had a cloudless night yet, so I was super impressed with your moon shot. Such fun, too.

Of course, the AJJ piece was mist unusual and gorgeous. I was incredibly impressed with the composition of this entry. It looked so random, yet had so much order, too. I LOVE it.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That should be MOST, not mist! Duh!

I love your fabulous fun moon piece Chrissie - and it might actually be true :)
You know what they say about staring at the moon can make you mad, well I've seen 2 faces, 2 owls and a Koala in your moon.. I love the lower left side best where you can see the craters.

Love your AJJ page too - what a great idea. All the things you collected look fabulous against your wonderful background.
