Last Day of Inspired by....

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I had a craft day together with some friends, we made cards, mixed media canvases, tried this and that, had wonderful strawberry cream cake and a fantastic dinner - all in a all, a really fun and yummy day. We are carrying on tomorrow morning; it wasn't planned, but we feel like it, so we're doing it!

Today is the last day of 'Inspired by....' at Art Journal Journey, I really had fun this month. Today I have another Kandinsky inspired piece, painted with acrylics on textured wallpaper. The geometric forms were drawn with felt pens.








I made a collage of all my journal pages this month, there are some I never got round to showing - perhaps next time!


The Christmas decorations have gone up in our little town, and the Christmas market is already in full swing:







Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. Great photographs--it all looks so warm and comforting. I went to a German market when I visited Germany many years ago and the smells and tastes came flooding back when I saw your pictures.

    Just love the artwork today with the wonderful canvas texture. What a great idea to make a collage of the artist inspired painting you have done this month--Stunning. I think it would make wonderful postcards to sell.

    Have a great crafty morning

    Love Chrissie x

  6. A fabulous final page and great to see all the others in the collage. Wow you certainly have had a busy month! Sounds as if you are having a great time with your arty friends, these kind of get togethers are always so wonderful! Trying very hard not to feel jealous of the lovely atmosphere in your little town!

  7. Playing a little catch-up here and commenting on your last posts, too. I certainly did enjoy all the inspired art...the cats were magical and I like the Warhol effect, in fact, much more now than when he did it! You photographed some beautiful sunsets and good great shots of the birds! I want a ride on that boat as right now I'm so busy and a little stressed out! The town decorations are really pretty!

    Your AJJ mosaic is very impressive, I hope you enjoyed making these as much as we enjoyed seeing them all. Wonder what the new theme will be tomorrow.
