Journal pages

Hello Everyone. Hope it is sunny where you are. We have had a few beautiful sunny days though it is cold with a strong breeze. Thank you for joining my at Jumbled Crafts.

I have made a page for the Gecko Galz challenge Fairy Garden as I saw it on Michele's blog. I have never joined in there before though I have some Gecko Galz images

I painted the background in acrylics and scanned it then added the bird images from -

The fairy is a collage I mixed of images from a long time ago and they were from Outlawbydesign.

Art Journal Journal has the theme Out and About chosen by Yvonne for this month's challenge. There have been wonderful entries and Yvonne has come up with so many ideas for her pages I wonder at her imagination and creativity. I am going to finish with a page that is on the same theme as another one I made for this challenge.

I painted the background in my journal then added old photographs of me and Vic climbing mountains and reaching the summit. We have reached a few more since then but by easier methods these days.

Have a great day I will watching the Grand Prix Qualifying.

Love Chrissie xx

  16. Your Fairy Garden page is really wonderful, the images are so beautiful!
    The AJJ page is fantastic with your photos and the great advice.
    Hugs, Mar

  17. Your fairy is adorable. So glad you warned us about her. I hope to just stumble on one in my garden one day, but I doubt she will look as graceful as the one you created in your lovely journal page.

    I really like your AJJ entry, and the background sets off the photos so well. Have fun watching the Grand Prix Qualifiers today. I hope it was interesting. Here in the states, it's still all about college basketball.

  18. Love the pages a lot Chrissie. That hiking page with the photos is great. Its nice seeing these old photos-like your wedding ones awhile back. And I like the collage too. Hope you were out for a walk or hike today. Hugs-Erika

  19. I love your fairy page - such fabulous elements! Your hiking page is wonderful - I know what you mean about taking easier routes - it's more the coming down that gets my knees these days!! Hugs, Chrisx
