Journal cover and Tag

Hi All from a very sunny NE UK Coast. At last we have sun and blue sky and everything looks so different after the grey and wet days of late. Thank you for joining me at Jumbled Crafts, it is always good to know you are there and supporting my efforts.

At City Crafters they have a great theme, Old Stuff, New Look

From card to Journal Cover for me.

I found a card I made October 2016, post  here

 The journal before being covered

A paper napkin background. 
What a great idea to look at old makes and recycle them it into something new.

Go Tag Thursday has the theme Wheels and Cogs this week.

Another opportunity to use my favourite stamp set. It is Punk Romance from Chocolate Baroque. A large stamp but so beautiful I think. I coloured it in paler shades for this tag. Then I cut it out and stuck it onto a tag.

If you like making tags maybe you would like to join us at the changed
 Tag Tuesday where we are starting a new venture with the theme Bookworm that I have chosen. Still 4 more days to join in so hope to see you there

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

    It's lovely to see the sun, and I should go out in the garden, BUT I would rather play in my studio.

  13. And what a beautiful journal cover it is! Thanks so much for playing along at CCCB!!

  14. We also had a lovely sunny day yesterday, but it's gone now...

    I love your journal cover, so delicate and pretty - and it's great that the texture of that gorgeous handmade paper still shows through too. Such a cool stamp on the tag, and beautifully coloured.

  15. Wow, that's a wonderful journal cover Chrissie! The napkin and your card look so beautiful together, I love the design :-). I think your Punk Romance stamp is fantastic and the way you have coloured and shaded it created such a lovely tag. Wishing you a great weekend! J :-)

  16. I spent the past two days out of town with my friend Kathy, so I've been MIA. I just got home and rushed over to see your latest artistic beauties.

    Your new journal cover is really different and unique. I love how you made it into something totally different. And, as I'm a friend of Steampunk, this tag is fantastic. It's a gem.

  17. This is such a clever and gorgeous take on our challenge. Your journal cover turned out great! I love it; and that gorgeous tag too! Thanks so much for joining us at CCCB!

  18. Love how you made your Journal Cover ! I think I will have to join in here too! Your Wheels and Cogs tag is beautiful! Hugs, Chrisx
