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


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

  2. Both pieces are great. Glad you could use the photo. Thanks for joining us again at AJJ with your floral piece. Have a great day in spite of the weather, hugs, Valerie

  3. 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!

    Happy Day!
