Journal page and Card

Hello Everyone from a sunny and bright NE UK coast. Cold but beautiful is how I would describe the day. I know parts of the world aren't so lucky with their weather at this time so I hope you all stay safe.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is Indian Summer or Autumn and was chosen by Valerie.

This started out as piece for Moo Mania and More where the theme is Drips and Splatters but became suitable for both of the challenges.

I painted the background with lots of drips and splatters though the drips seemed to all run into one and made an awful mess. When it was dry I added some of the treasure I found the other day and then I actually drew a little bird. I have wanted to do that for a very long time.

At Fussy and Fancy they have a Bingo board with lots of interesting rows to choose from

I chose Flowers, Buttons and Dies

I used the bits of card I had cut-out instead of the die cuts.. There is a story to tell about the die and it also ties in with Fussy and Fancy

I won a £10 in one of the Fussy and Fancy Challenges. It was from NOOR design, www.noordesign-shop.co.uk. 

I ordered the two leaf dies and they sent me a free gift of the decorative chip boards which I haven't seem before. They were amazingly helpful and the prize arrived the very next day I chose it. Hows that for service! Thank you to them and to Sheryl and her team at Fussy and Fancy

Have a great rest of the day I will be watching Andy Murray in the finals in China

Love Chrissie xx

  5. LOVE your beautiful journal page, as well as your Fussy and Fancy win. You did a great job with these and chose the perfect column, too. Both entries are extremely lovely, and you should/can be proud of both.

  6. Beautiful page, love thelittle bird.

  8. Well done on winning... you've chosen your prize well, leaf dies are more versatile than flowers (men cards anyone?) and the bonus die-cuts look fabulous! Love your messy journal page with the "yummy" drips and the use of negative die-cuts makes a change. Both projects are great.

  9. I love these Chrissie, especially the little bird you've drawn, my family are still traumatised by my last attempt at drawing lol. Have fun with your winnings, and yay for Andy Murray! xx

  10. Its another beautiful page using your found treasures and the litle bird is so so cute. Enjoy your goodies Chrissie and congratulations on your win.

  11. This is a great mixed of real nature and some images from nature. I think your piece came out wonderful Chrissie. Hugs-Erika

  12. Such a lovely page and the Bronte quote is one of my favourites :-). I like how you have blended the torn page into the background, such lovely texture and colour! Your new leaf dies are beautiful and it's so nice to get a free gift too, well done on your win and wishing you a great start to the week! J :-)

  13. You are so creative. The page and card are great.
    Congrats for your win.
    Have a happy new week xx
