Spring and Nature

Hi All

Hope everyone is safe with all the high winds around at the moment. Good for drying the washing but not good for our walks to the seafront.

At Art Journal Journey this month Jo has chosen the theme Hello Spring.

I added another page to my scrappy journal. I try to add some things from a magazine or newspaper in this journal. 
I felt like I was still a child when I scribbled the background. Sometimes doing the simple option feels so good. To that I added the words from an Argos catalogue and did some stamping here and  there. Last thing to add were the cut-out flowers.

At Moo Mania and More the theme they have chosen is close to nature. Another page in the same journal for this challenge.

The background is chalks in various colours blended together.
Then I used the Geckogalz Darling Dragonflies sheet and cut out some of the images from it. The letters were cut from various magazines to spell out the word. I drew around the edges with Sharpies pens.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Both pages are wonderful Chrissie, and glad you had fun making them. Very stormy today again, I was already out shopping with my neighbour as he wanted us to be back home and dry before the big storm starts later. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Great pages Chrissie. I am loving those bright happy colors. Its time for some bright happy weather too. Hope your winds die down. Hugs-Erika

  3. I can imagine how fun it was to scribble the background - it's a fabulous page and also the elegant dragonflies page is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with Art Journal Journey and Moo Mania & More again! Your support is so much appreciated as you know!
    Have a great Thursday dear Chrissie!

  4. Such beautiful pages! Your spring page looks fabulous and I smiled as I read about the scribbled background, such fun 😁. The colours look glorious with the images that you used - wonderful! Thanks so much for joining us at Art Journal Journey! J 😊 x

  5. I love your "scribbled" background, and the chalks look lovely!

  6. Two fantastic pages Chrissie and super backgrounds, the bright happy spring colours in the first one look lovely.
    Its just the weather for staying out of the winds, I don't think any washing would stay on my lines these past couple of days, the wind has brought our back fence down, fortunately with no damage.
    Stay safe.

  7. I think both pages are great.
    Yes, we too are experiencing strong winds … but no damage to fences like some have had.

    All the best Jan

  8. Love your page, such lovely images and colours.
    As for the wind and washing they wouldn't dry here, it lashing with rain 😉

  9. Love this Chrissie, nice to have rain in my neck of the woods, except we got flooded again...x

  10. Just popping by for my weekly visit...Fabulous pages for both the challenges!
    Here the weather seems to have calmed down a bit finally and despite the cold the sun is peeping through. Long may it last...
    Happy Sunday! xxx

  11. 2 lovely pages Chrissie! The wind seems to have died down here and the sun made an appearance, so we might have reasonable weather today... Enjoy your Sunday. xx

  12. I'm back and will play catch-up as best I can. This has been a very trying time being without internet, but I HOPE this has been the cure. I'll explain on Wednesday, because it's too convoluted to explain here.

  13. Both of these pages have made me smile - you have captured the joy of Spring in your first page and I love all those dragonflies! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. A fabulous Spring page Chrissie and I like your scribbled background and I love the dragonfly images you used.
    I tried to comment on your other blog, but it said I'm not a team member? I know I have been a bad blogger lately so an wondering if I've missed something? Sorry to read Vic has not been well after his tooth extraction, must have been painful for him - so pleased he's doing well now. You have been busy - the blankets and pram covers look lovely and I do like the doll in her sleeping blanket.
    Hugs, Avril xx
