Journal pages

Hello Everyone. Hope it is sunny where you are. We have had a few beautiful sunny days though it is cold with a strong breeze. Thank you for joining my at Jumbled Crafts.

I have made a page for the Gecko Galz challenge Fairy Garden as I saw it on Michele's blog. I have never joined in there before though I have some Gecko Galz images



I painted the background in acrylics and scanned it then added the bird images from -

The fairy is a collage I mixed of images from a long time ago and they were from Outlawbydesign.

Art Journal Journal has the theme Out and About chosen by Yvonne for this month's challenge. There have been wonderful entries and Yvonne has come up with so many ideas for her pages I wonder at her imagination and creativity. I am going to finish with a page that is on the same theme as another one I made for this challenge.


I painted the background in my journal then added old photographs of me and Vic climbing mountains and reaching the summit. We have reached a few more since then but by easier methods these days.

Have a great day I will watching the Grand Prix Qualifying.

Love Chrissie xx

Tag and Triptych

Hi All. I hope you week is going well. My week has been a busy one so far and the time is just flying by as usual. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts and for the lovely comments you leave.

Hope you will remember to join us at Try it on Tuesday where there are still a few days left for our Lady in Red Challenge and if you need a bit longer there is still plenty of time to make a tag for our birds/nests theme at Tag Tuesday. All types of projects are welcome at both blogs

At Go Tag Thursday the theme this week is Nautical. Always a pleasure to join in there so I hope you will find time to make a tag.

I went down the digi route for this tag but will try to make another one by hand as well.

Moo Mania and More have a new theme and it is 'triplicate'


Not sure if this qualifies but it is three frames filled with a painting I did many years ago when I was learning about still life. May be I will make something a bit different as well.

Have a good day all

Love Chrissie xx

Tag Tuesday and reminder for TIOT

Hi All who drop in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit. Always great to see what people think of my makes and for me to get to know you a little better along the way.


At Tag Tuesday this week we have Wendy choosing the new theme. She has chosen Birds/ Nests and that is quite the thing for this time of year in the UK. Birds are gathering bits of twig and moss near us and the crows have already made huge nests in the high trees on the main road




For my background I used one of Astrid's stunning freebie tags-a big thank you Astrid for your kindness. One side is embossed and then I added two birds that I cut out from a picture. Hope you will join us during the next two weeks with your take on the theme.
Thank you to all who joined in with the last challenge and your amazing tags

A reminder that you still have another week to join us at Try it on Tuesday for the Lady in Red challenge. Also today the Top 5 for the Time for Tea Challenge will be posted so I hope you are among those.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

T is for Treats

Hi All. Second post for me today as this one is for T day at Elizabeth's where we all gather on Tuesday to say hello with a drinks related post.

 Happy T Day to all who drop by from Elizabeth's T Party and to anyone else who calls in.

This week we have been out for more snacks and meals than we have done for years. One excuse is that the sun shone for a couple of days and another is that it was our 27th wedding anniversary so it was all worth celebrating with treats.

Here we are getting married in Jamaica

Here we are with our best man and bridesmaid who stood in at the last minute

 We went for a Chinese meal on out anniversary and the drink was Lime and Lemonade



Eating and drinking again overlooking the sea at Jeromes. It was freezing cold outside so good to be undercover though we usually sit outside when we go to Jeromes for coffee.

Love Chrissie xx
