Tag and Scrapbook Page

Hi All

Dull and cold here and still with the wind coming from the NE. I'm pleased that we haven't had the awful rain and storms that have been all over the south of England. Hope everyone in Blogland is safe from flooding.

Still almost a week to join in at Tag Tuesday where Wendy has chosen Locks and Keys as the theme for this time.

This tag is a digital tag with a background of part of a rusty metal photograph, a bunch of keys, and a lock picture found on Google.

At Try it on Tuesday their new theme is 'She's got the Look'. Something a bit different with lots of ways to get your ideas flowing.

I made a scrapbook page for my 8x8 book. It has been negelected for a very long time and as my daughter gave me lots of 8x8 patterned papers, I thought it was time to use some of them.

This is to show eyes full of the dreamy look of love and I think this face has them.

The paper was edged with Distressed ink then I looked through an old folder with Poser Tubes and this beautiful lady was one created by Amy . I used to use a lot of her work years ago but when I looked at her web site now I find it has lots of quite risque images--maybe it's me just getting older? It was printed out on photgraphic paper and cut it out to stick on the page. Then I used various stamps including the large LOVE one by Chocolate Baroque. The flowers were cut-out from an old birthday card.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Wonderful artwork! Your lady certainly has "The look of love" and you have complimented her beautifully with the heart background, sentiments and embellishments - amazing 😁. Thanks so much for joining us at Try it on Tuesday! J 😊 x

  2. Gorgeous tag and journal page. Love the rusty look of the tag, very atmospheric, and the lady on your journal page really has the look! Thanks so much for joining us at Tag Tuesday and at TIOT, much appreciated! Extremely hot here, and we had violent storms yesterday with hailstones big as eggs, it was scary. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Such wonderful artwork Chrissie! YOu make always such beauty! Great to see you joining Try It On Tueday again! Hugs, Susi

  4. Nice art today Chris. They both looks fantastic! Hugs-Erika

  5. Brilliant tag and love this post as always. Hugs.xx[aussie aNNie blog]

  6. I love the journal page Chrissie, she does have a dreamy look, as if she is looking into her loved ones eyes. Its a fantastic page for the TioT's theme, is good to see you there again.
    The tag has super rusty metal effects, its a great quote as well.

  7. I LOVE your tag. You had me at RUST. I think it's great and I really MUST make a tag for Tag Tuesday. I think yours is fabulous.

    I also like your darling page you created for TioT. She really DOES have the look! It's adorable.

  8. Beautiful page Chrissie but I think the tag was my favourite this time probably as I am a steampunk addict, so rust and metalware always goes down well. The quote made me smile as that always happens to me too with my bunch of door/garage etc keys.
    Have a great day.

  9. Love the tag - glad we don't have key trouble these days but the quote reminded me of the bunch of school keys I used to carry!!! The wistful look on your young lady's face is great and I love how you used the flowers from a birthday card! So pleased you joined us at TIOT! Hugs, Chrisx

  10. Super tag and lovely page, Chrissie.

  11. Fabulous rusty effects on your digi tag, and the 8x8 page is lovely - she's definitely got the look! We had many spectacular thunderstorms, but thankfully no flooding round here.

  13. A great tag Chrissie and I LOVE your journal page, she certainly does have the look of Love in her eyes! Great recycling with the cards cut from a birthday card, they really add to the background.

  14. What fabulous pieces Chrissie, I have this look on my face when I look at chocolate! We seem to have skipped the worst of the weather too, though it's really muggy today. xx
