Journal Page and digital project

Hello All. A bit late today as we have been busy doing a bit of h---k as Vic's Mum and Bill are coming for the day tomorrow.

At Art Journal Journey the theme was chosen by Valerie and is Light and Darkness and there are some wonderful ideas already from all the people entering.

I have an abstract for my entry today. I painted a page in black acrylic and when I took a photograph of it, the light reflected back and made the page look black and white instead of just black.

Moo Mania and More have a new challenge that started yesterday the theme there is trees

The background is a photograph taken along our cliff top and the tree is a free to use drawing.. This would be ok for AJJ as well I guess.

Hope your day is going well and thank you for calling in.



  1. Both pieces are gorgeous Chrissie, love the idea of the white light just appearing on the dark paint. Thanks so much for joining us at AJJ and MM&M, hugs, Valerie

  2. I don't know why, but your Art Journal piece reminds me of baby scan photos...
    Two great projects with thought provoking words.

  3. Wow, that black background looks awesome Chrissie, love the reflections.
    Great quotes on both of the pieces, the tree project is fantastic as well.

  4. When I GLANCED at your AJJ entry, at first, I thought it looked like a scan of a fetus. Silly me, but I have a very big imagination, I guess. I think reflections make this a fantastic piece.

    I also like your lovely tree and your own photo, too. You have such incredible digital skills.

  5. Hi Chrissie, fantastic art that reflected the light perfectly! The quotes on both are wonderful. I hope you are enjoying the festive season, Shirleyxx

  6. The effect of the white light created like magic out of the black paint is really wonderful, and I love the words too. Hard to disagree with the words of the second one.... That sunset photo is magnificent, and I like the simplicity of the tree in the foreground.
