Tags and Journal Page

Hello Everyone and thank you for the wonderful comments you left while I was away. I did have internet a few times but not for very long so I haven't been able to do my usual blog rounds. I will be back to normal now and look forward to seeing your makes.

At Tag Tuesday dear Wendy chose Textures as her theme and it is going well. You still have a few days left to join us there with your textured tag so I hope to see your makes

This tag is made of fabric that has metal drops on it. Haven't a clue how they do that but it was from quite a nice old tee shirt that I cut up. I used a plastic doillie and a metal adornment from a belt as well.

Go Tag Thursday has Star or Stars as the theme for this week. Good to see more people joining in there as well. A bit of a tag revival going on I think.

This is a digital tag with free to use tattoo designs and a background I made in Paint Shop Pro.

At Art Journal Journey the theme chosen by Rosie is circles and runs until the end of the month

Another digital make as I thought of the years I went to aquafit and what we must have looked like under the water
The words say, 'Exercising underwater also creates benefits by challenging your body in ways you can't on dry land'.
 It certainly changed mine. It helped me to lose weight and get a new shape. I need to go again and to lose more weight to get an even better shape I think.

I will also add this to the challenge at Moo Mania More for their underwater theme

A reminder also that Try it on Tuesday started their new challenge this week and the theme is Numbers and Letters. Don't forget to join in there as you could be chosen in our Top 5 and maybe chosen as our Guest Designer in the future.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Goodness, Chrissie, you are making up for time, aren't you? Your texture tag is awesome. I've looked and looked for PLASTIC doilies and can't find them here. I want one as a mask so I can use my shimmering mists with it. You certainly got a LOT of texture in that tag. I really admire all the various oddities you used to create it.

    Your digital tag is fabulous, too. It shows how very diverse you are.

    I really like the AJJ and MM&M entry. It is very different and unique. It packs a genuine message, too!

    Glad you are back, dear.

  2. Gorgeous tag and journal page. Love all the sparkly texture on the tag. Under water gymnastic is fun. Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Beautiful tags Chrissi, and an amazing gymnastic water feature.xx
    Have a lovely weekend.♥

  4. I love your fantastic unique tags - you are such a creative soul - making the most beautiful art out of just ordinary simple overlefts and recycled items - bravo! Your aqua gymnastig piece is just pure fun -- I always take aqua gymnastic since it is for free in our very expensive Sole-Felsen-Bad ("Sole-rock-spa") nearby. But don't visit often .
    You made me happy you know it - Thank you for linking to AJJ and MM& M !! I wish you a very happy weekend!

  11. Fabulous tags Chrissie, I loved the quotes especially that first one by Andy Warhol.
