Up in the sky..

Hi everyone! I have had a lovely day today, meeting wth friends, watching demos and spending some of my savings at the Happy Stampers show in Port Sunlight! I'll do a 'showed and tell' next week!
My leg held up well and I shall be seeing some folk again in a few weeks time! 

I have a journal page today using part of an old tag I made some time ago!
I can't remember many details about the original tag except that I stamped the circle for the sun and added the 'rays' with an inked ruler!
I made the background by adding Distress inks to the page then added yellow through a Paper Artsy flower stencil to make the sun rays, and another stencil, not sure which brand with text and a stem.
I stuck down the tag then thought it would look better with a little bit of stem on so lined everything up again to add more ink.
I doodled around the edge and added part of some song lyrics at the bottom.

I am joining in at Art Journal Journey and Erika's 'Up in the Sky/Up in the Air' theme!

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Oh I do like all the sunshine this page Chris. The tag is beautiful and really makes a wonderful image on the page. I love the diamonds in the background. Thanks so much for joining in again at the In the Air/In the Sky challenge. And it sounds like you had a good day Chris. Can't wait to see your show and tell of it. Hugs-Erika

I can't believe you managed to craft when you got home, Chris - I collapsed, lol. It was so good to chat for a little while ;-)
This is a great journal page - love the way you did the sun - brilliant idea. It's very arty and atmospheric, with a great quote, too!

I bet I know where you'll be going in a few weeks (grin)! It's nice to meet up with friends who make the same kind of art you do. Sounds like you enjoyed yourself and saw some good demos, too.

I thought you might want an update. The water is finally out of the basement, but the walls are still damp. I have bleached everything, and don't seem to have any mold.

How clever are those sun rays. I would never have considered using a ruler. It's a super entry for Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey. You are SO supportive of AJJ and we are so grateful.
