Journal page and a tag

Hi All. Hope your day is going well. We have hit a sunny patch but still a cold breeze from the sea so no bikinis on show yet on the beach. Thank you for calling in on your travels.

Art Journal Journey have Elegance and Grunge as their theme this time and it was chosen by the lovely Gill

I started out with a coffee stained digital paper for the grunge but it quickly got covered up with all the other things I added. The lady  was digitally made up by me years ago and has had effects added to her for this project.

I am also adding this to the new challenge blog Digitally Made challenges where everything you enter has to 100% digital. All of the things on this are ones I have made digitally in Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop. I did ask  if it was ok to add animation and they said yes. It is going to fun I think.

I made a tag and it fits a few challenges though I hadn't realised that when I made it.

I made it for Tag Tuesday where I chose the theme 'Faces' for the next 2 weeks. I am giving a prize to one person who enters the challenge and is picked out a hat. You can read about the prize here and I hope you will join us in the challenge.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme this week is Mechanical so I thought this tag would be just right for that as well with the face of one of our famous mechanical inventors and builders.

Then Moo Mania and More have Headgear for their theme for the next 2 weeks-well what better headgear than the wonderful top hat. Isambard certainly cut a dash I think

A reminder that you still have time to join us at Try it on Tuesday where the theme is transport. Hope you will be with us for that one as well.

I think that's all from me today. Enjoy whatever you have planned

Love Chrissie xx

  5. Wow, your digital page is stunning! So many elements in the elements, beautiful flowers and text patterns. The neutrals works so well with the lovely image you chose. My favourite is the magical twinkling, how wonderful!! Your tag is fantastic! The red and black works so well for a masculine image, and the golden gears are a fabulous accent choice!!

    I have missed so many of your posts Chrissie, I'm sorry for that. I wish I had time to leave a comment on each one, but I've just a short time for visiting today. I hope you are having a wonderful spring time, sending hugs :)

  6. Love your fabulous classy AJJ piece Chrissie and the twinkling bits are genius!
    Super image on your lovely tag too - I find the history of IKB very interesting.
    More like March winds and April showers the last few days here and the poor little Robins are being blown about when trying to feed.
