Journal Page and Tag

Hello Everyone from a very cold NE UK coast. Thank you for your comments and for the sympathy ones about my broken glasses. I am pleased to say they are now repaired and Vic went to pick them up for me. Good to be able to see well again for sure.

At Art Journal Journey this month Susi is the host. We are asked to make a collage with no faces, no leaves and no wings.

I used chalk for the background then highlighted the strips with a felt tip pen. All the fashion pieces were cut from different pages of a magazine and look like the sort of thing I would like to wear especially if they only cost the sale price :)

I will add this to the challenge at Moo Mania and More  as well where the theme is stripes this time.

At Go Tag Thursday this week we are asked for a tag with texture

I started out with corrugated card then added a stencil with texture paste. The stencil is from Stampendous. Then I made a Suffolk Puff in Christmas material and added jewels and two bought embellishments. I think I may use this on a Christmas Card

Have a wonderful day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Absolutely fabulous collage! Love the price instead if a face - perfect! Who doesn't love a sale! Brilliant blingy gorgeous Christmas tag too! So glad you have your glasses back, Yay! xxx

  2. Lovely journal page Chrissie, clothes are always better for me if they don't cost a fortune. Glad you have your glasses again, it's horrible when they break like that.
    The tag is gorgeous, too. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Oh Chrissie, I like the journal page. It's very clever the way you got rid of the model's head. I like it!

    That Christmas tag cou;d definitely stand alone, but I'm sure if you add it to a Christmas card, the recipient will love it.

    Have a lovely Friday.

  4. Your page is great Chrissie! Thank you says AJJ! So clever to take the price instead of the head...lol...and striped for Moo Mania as well.. you are so clever! The tag is beautiful as it is - but maybe it will look even better on a card - who knows?!
    Good that your glasses are repaired now , it would have been annoying without them the whole weekend long!

    Happy Friday!
