Hi All. Nice to have you join me at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for visiting. Today my daughter and son-in-law are coming to stay until Tuesday so I expect we will have lots of fun and laughter with crafting to add to the mix as she always brings me lots of goodies and great ideas for knitting. Vic and me are often called 'guys' when they visit e.g,'what would you guys like to do today?' It makes me feel about 18 years old which is great lol.
At Art Journal Journey the theme this month is' If You go down in the Woods'. As we go down in the woods often and take lots of photographs I have been using some of those for backgrounds.
for this page I started out with a chalked page-I have been chalking lots of pieces of A4 paper to add to a new journal
I then messed about with the photograph and removed all the white parts in Animation Shop. Next I printed it out onto the chalked paper and some of the chalk colours showed through. The little birds I cut from an old calendar and I hope you be inspired to look up when in the woods as you never know what you might see.
Also at Moo Mania and More the theme this time is Spring and as now is the best time for hearing bird song I thought I would add something to this page to remind you to listen as well as look when you are out and about.
When I saw the theme Spring, the song by William Shakespeare wouldn't go out of my head so my heart shape represents that.
It was a lover and his lass,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
That o’er the green cornfield did pass,
In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.
You can read the rest of the lyrics here if you like.
Have a beautiful day All
Love Chrissie xx
