Tag and Journal Page

Hello Everyone. I hope your week is going well. Our weather has turned cold and wet and the sky looks grey and dark so another crafting day I think with my daylight lamp shining on my crafty space.

Go Tag Thursday have the theme Home/House/ Houses.


I started out with one of Valerie's photographs of the clouds in the sky. Then I altered some houses to make a row reaching up into the clouds

At Art Journal Journey the theme for November is to make a collage with no leaves, no wings and no faces. It was chosen by Susi and it is proving to be quite a challenge.


I painted a background and scanned it then printed out and stuck the sheet into my black page journal

Next I made large die cut daisy shapes and stuck then onto the paper. Hadn't a clue what to do with them so it all just evolved.

Thank you for calling in and have a great rest of the day

Love Chrissie xx

Two great projects. I love those colourful buildings. They look almost like embroidery.

Hi Chrissie! Your pieces are fabulous!! I love all the detail and inspired use of color. There is nothing more cozy than a dreary day spent creating in the craft room, and you definitely outdid yourself!
Hugs,
Nancy

These are wonderful, Chrissie. The houses are fantastic and really clever and colorful.

I think your flowers evolved nicely on this page. I also like the quote, something I need to hear right now!

I know what you mean, I wouldn't be without my daylight lamp this time of year :-). Your tag is gorgeous, the sky and houses are beautiful and the addition of the black bow is the perfect embellishment! Your page background reminds me of autumn and is a lovely setting for all those lovely flowers you created! Enjoy the rest of your week! J :-)
