Tag and Collage

Hello from a beautiful sunny day here at the NE UK coast and I am hoping it is the start of a good week as we will be away until next weekend on the opposite coast for a change. I do have a scheduled post for Tuesday and hope to have a little internet time to do the odd comment but not sure about that until I get there.


At Tag Tuesday we have the theme Anything Goes and still over a week to make a tag of your choice and share it with us or if you make a tag for another challenge add it to us as well. Always love to see what you make.


Here I am still trying hard with my sewing machine to fasten bits of things to other things for crafting. It never seems to work for me so I have left on all the dangling ends to distract you from the sewing. The owl is one I coloured in an adult colouring book and he will be another distraction hopefully. A mop up page background 'sewn' onto green card

Moo Mania and More have dancer as their theme this time


I have two dancers and I hope you can feel the floating feeling that dance gives you. I danced for years and still would if I could find a partner. It really is the best feeling to float around a dance floor in the arms of someone who is doing the same thing. Vic has several 'left feet' unfortunately.

I would like to add this to Digitally Made as my third entry as they have Anything Goes for their first challenge.

Have a great week

Love Chrissie xx

Tag and Journal Page

Hello Everyone. A lovely morning here after all the rain yesterday. Thank you for calling in today and I hope you like what I have made.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme for this week is Tape Measure or Ruler. Good to know the week before what the theme will be for the coming week as it gives me time to think about it and make the tag early. 


I used the Tim Holtz measure stencil then coloured the he tapes with Distressed ink. The quote I found on Google and the own is a picture of my knitted tea cosy. He turns up on all sorts of crafty things.

Will link this to our Tag Tuesday challenge as well where Valerie has the theme Anything Goes so any tags you make just add us to your post.

Art Journal Journey have Gill as their host this month and the Elegance and Grunge theme is proving to be a winner for sure with some terrific ideas.


I did the elegance bit first with the ladies from DezinaWorld 15 where June kindly provides lots of free images for us to use. Then I made some grunge brushes to show how quickly elegance can be messed up. I know if I get dressed up I spill something all down my front--well maybe that's just me.

Have a great day all. We have 6 for lunch today so I had better get started.

Love Chrissie xx

Tag Tuesday, prize winner news and TIOT project

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Great to have you pop in and thank you for your visit.

Time for another Challenge at Tag Tuesday and this time Valerie has chosen the theme Anything Goes. You have 2 weeks to make a tag and we would love to see what you make.

This tag started out with an old mop up page stuck onto it. Then I added drips of alcohol ink here and there. Next came the flowers and leaves cut out from a seed catalogue before making some mushrooms from a book page. The butterfly was cut out of a magazine as well. The mop up page didn't stick down too well so it has added extra texture to the tag.  

The winner of my prize for the Faces Tag Challenge was number 19 and that was  Gibby Frogatt. Well done Gill and if you let me have your address through Valerie I can send the prize to you.


 There is still another week to go in our 'Little Things Mean a Lot' challenge at Try it on Tuesday. Hope you will join in with us and make something that fits in with the theme. I have made a second piece for the challenge. Lots of other ideas from the wonderful team if you visit TIOT. Today the top 5 for the Transport challenge will be posted as well.




I made a domino book. The dominoes were sprayed with gold paint then concertina page added and decorated both sides with stamps and coloured inks.. Lots of ideas and tutorials online for this sort of book.

Have Fun

Love Chrissie xx

T stands for Walk Along the Pier Photographs and Inchie

Happy T Day if you have called in from Elizabeth's blog where we are all invited to post a drink related post on Tuesday. Welcome to all from anywhere else and thank you for your visit. Inchiers my Koala is at the end of the pictures

The best place to start with this post is at the end or you will wonder where the drink comes in The boat in the harbour is a very old one and does trips around the bay and beyond. I remember going on it when I was a child and I still love going on when the puffins are nesting on the cliffs. We sat on the other side of the harbour and looked at back at where we had been--now to see where we had been-picture heavy warning.

We walked along the pier at the end of the harbour path. It isn't a fancy pier just a reminder of the fishing heritage from way back when and at the end a modern lighthouse and a yacht club 'shed'

Fish Factory on another pier from the other end of the harbour 

Kittiwakes nesting on the harbour wall--what a noise they make

More kittiwakes and the back of the shops in the distance


 Looking across to where we walked along from home into town. The big white building is a large theatre that has been there decades.



This lady is knitting a ganzie. I love this new addition to the start of the pier as I  knit the same sort of thing myself 


Such a beautiful face.

Hope you enjoyed the walk along the pier and the drink at the end/start of it.

Every Inchie Monday this week had Koala as the animal


Here's my happy chappy giving you a smile
