Journal Pages

Hi All from a beautiful sunny day here in the UK. It is frosty as well but nice to see the blue sky and sun for a change. Thank you for your visit today always good to have you call in.

At Always Use Rubber this time the theme is Things with Wings

I made a journal page with a painted background and  a set of stamps I haven't used for a very long time. It is the Chocolate Baroque set called Punky Romance. The stamps are mostly quite large so this is an A4 page. I am not usually a stamper though I do have lots of stamps and this challenge blog has helped me to revisit stamping.

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.

It was nice to use wings again on my first page for today But Susi has made us think and it is always great to do that.

Hope you enjoy your weekend

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Lovely pieces today, both of them with lots of nice details and colours. Thanks for joining us again at AJJ. Have a nice weekend, hugs, Valerie

  2. Two lovely pieces of work - your entry for AUR is gorgeous, it's so rare to see steampunk done in a pretty way. Thanks for joining us at AUR

  3. Fab pieces Chrissie - love the Steampunk stamps you have used - lovely background and colours.
    Your AJJ is nice and grungy with lovely warm colours - definitely need some warmth today after that heavy frost this morning... brrr
    Have a great weekend .. Gill xx

  4. Gorgeous steampunk page, love it and the CB stamps are awesome (a set on my wish list). I love frosty days with bright sunshine :) Take good care and enjoy the weekend, xx

  5. Your winged page is beautiful Chrissie and I can understand that you wanted to make something forbidden ...lol!!
    But you are a very good girl to also create this cool digital collage for Art Journal Journey! Super!
    Please send some of the sun in my direction if possible! Here it is foggy , grey and rainy since days. Not so nice!
    oxo Susi

  6. Its a fabulous stamped page Chrissie, love all the steampunk style images, good to see the forbidden wings, I made a card yesterday with wings and I felt quite guilty.
    Love the grungy page as well great warm colours. The frost never lifted here today.

  7. Fantastic journal page with a great set of stamps images! Love your AJJ collage too.
    Have a lovely weekend, Chrissie!

  8. For someone who doesn't do much stamping, I love what you have created with your stamps. It's ironic that you have lots of stamps. I sorted mine recently, and realized I have so many more than I had a mere two years ago. They sort of multiply in your craft room, I believe!

    Your AJJ page is fantastic, too. You always come up with something lovely, and this one hits Susi's challenge head on!

  9. Love the two different colour palettes - one gentle and spring-like; the other r, rich and autumnal.

  10. First I thought "There are wings!!" - on the heart and the butterflies. But then I saw your second page - it looks really good with strong colors and NO wings :))

  11. Fabulous colours here, love this gorgeous post.xx {aNNie}

  12. Great pages. I especially love the vings-creation. Clever and beautiful.
    Happy Sunday to you ❤❤

  13. Fabulous stamping on your wings page, love the quote too! Awesome colours on the second! xxx

  14. I enjoyed this steam punkish collage too. I love how you used your images. Hugs-Erika

  15. Awesome jobs! Love the steampunk.

  16. Steampunk Butterflies how brilliant are these. I cannot tell you how much your entries mean to us each time and this is so very pretty. Thank you Chrissie for sharing with us at Always Use Rubber. XOXO

  17. Wonderful art work! You have created such a feminine looking steampunk piece with those fabulous Chocolate Baroque stamp set. The name of them, Punky Romance, made me smile too. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and wishing you a great start to the week! J :-)

  18. I am SO glad our little challenge has helped challenge you to break out those rubber stamps! What a lovely job you have done on both your journal pages - both of them are so colorful! Thank you so much for playing with us at Always Use Rubber ~ Christi DT

  19. Beautiful artwork Chrissie! I love the steampunk in combo with the dainty flowers and butterflies, such a wonderful contrast in design and it works so well here. Beautiful page, so vibrant and full of autumn's beauty!! hugs for now :)

  20. I love both of your journal pages! Susi certainly did challenge us last month didn't she?Hugs, Chrisx
