Tag and Journal Page

Happy Weekend All. I am looking forward to watching cricket all day on television but the weather forecast isn't good so I may have to find something else to do. We have already been to the shops for essentials so lots to nibble if we get hungry. Thank you for calling in and enjoy your day whatever you are doing.

Go Tag Thursday have book print as their theme for this week and this just happens to be our theme at Try it on Tuesday where we would like you to use a book page or part of one for your project. Still over a week to join us there

I printed the children image onto the book page. I found the children on a free to use colouring page. Then I coloured them with watercolour pencils and mounted the page on a glittery card

At Art Journal Journey, Gill is hosting the Nature's Wonders theme this month

I made the flowers from a used milk container and the Tim Holtz tattered flowers die. They have hung in our garden for a few years now and faded a bit but the butterfly and bees love to rest on them. We get a lot of different butterflies but the peacock ones are the most spectacular.

The rain has just started here and I have lots of washing on the line so will go and get it back inside.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Lovely journal page for AJJ, and a fun tag for TIOT and Tag Thursday. Enjoy watching your cricket or whatever, have fun, hugs, Valerie

  2. A wonderful Journal page for AJJ! Thank you dear Chrissie and a wonderful tag as well! Enjoy the cricket!
    Happy Saturday dear Chrissie !

  3. A gorgeous journal page Chrissie, love the way the dappled light creates the shadows. Its a fabulous tag as well.

  4. These are gorgeous Chrissie, I am seeing a lot of stamping on printed paper and want to give it a go too...looks lovely.xx

  5. Two fabulous projects full of atmosphere.

  6. Great tag, the children look like they are having a wonderful time! The flowers are fabulous, I love them! They would make a great addition to anyones garden and I can see why the butterlies and bees love them. You are so clever to have made them out of a used milk container too! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! J :-)

  7. Wonderful tag Chrissie, the splash of red on that cute image is perfect with the pretty ribbon.
    I adore your garden piece, no wonder the butterflies love them (love that Peacock) and what a great idea for using milk containers.
    Hope despite the weather you are having a nice weekend.
    Today here, the wind looks likes it is dropping a bit and the sun is shining again and the birds look a bit happier too.
    Happy Sunday.
    Gill xx

  8. Beautiful tag and page, Chrissie.

    Wishing you a lovely Sunday xx

  9. What a wonderful idea to print on a book page, I love the effect on the tag. As for your flowers and that incredible butterfly, and the layout LOVE it.

  10. Been a busy week here so not been around as much as of recent times. Your tag is magical the children page is so pretty. Your journal page and those brilliant milk carton flowers inspired. You know I really do love your work always that little bit different makes it extra special. XOXO

  11. Beautiful pieces Chrissie. Did you get to watch Cricket or did it get rained out? The kids on the beach tag is wonderful (and summery) and love the beautiful flowers. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  12. A pretty Tag Chrissie...love the image of the children...
