Journal page Day

Hello Everyone. I hope you are enjoying the weekend and fitting in some crafting along the way .Nice of you to call in at Jumbled Crafts-thank you. I have been watching tennis and doing more knitting so the craft room is filling up with fluffy creatures.

 At Country View Crafts the theme this month is Things With Wings.

I added a page to one of my journals.

The background is painted in pale pink then I threw on some Cosmic Shimmer while the paint was wet. I left some to act as a nest and painted the other to form part of the page. This nest was for my coloured owl that I had cut from one of my colouring books Then I stamped on some leaves, added a quote and a couple of little flowers that I coloured in pale shades. I did the pale shades as
More Mixed Media has anything goes as usual but with the option to add pastels. I would like to add this to Emerald City Crafts as well as they are having their very first challenge and it is Anything Goes but it can't be digital.

The next page is for  Art Journal Journey where Bluebeard and Elizabeth are the hosts this month and have chosen the theme Summer Love

This is a digital page as I photographed the page I made from the mop up on kitchen roll. I added lots of things that I had made into digital paint brushes then added the whole thing to a digital journal. I will add this Digitally Made as well where the theme is Summer Fun/ Patriotic.

Hope you enjoy your day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. You have a very wise owl. I love the beauty and how the monochromatic background goes so well with your lovely owl.

    Of course, I'm totally in love with your beautiful summertime page. I can't believe the background started out as a mop up page. It's a genuine beauty. And, as always, I'm impressed with your digital skills, that always show off your various talents. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey today.

  2. Both pages are wonderful, and I LOVE that owl. Owls are always gorgeous. I hear one every night, but haven't seen it yet. And thanks for linking your lovely page to More Mixed Media, much appreciated! Have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie
