Try it on Tuesday is Up in the Air

Hi All. Hope you are all well and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts.

Time for the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday where this time we are asking you for your craft ideas on the subject, 'I Believe I can Fly'. Think anything with wings or you with wings. If you are stuck for ideas my teamies have made great samples to inspire you. Hope you will pop to TIOT to see them and also to the team's blogs to see how they made them.


I made a window picture that makes me feel like flying when I look at it.


 The design was made in Paint Shop Pro with a bird image and a flower image. Then it was printed on acetate and left to dry for a few hours. I had an old brown frame that I painted lightly in turquoise so that some of the brown showed through. Then I added the acetate picture and a piece of parchment paper behind it that I stuck to the frame

Here it is with the sun behind it 

Here it is stuck to the conservatory window with the sun shining through it which gives a ripple effect from the glass. Very difficult to photograph so it does look better in real life than in the picture.

On the craft room window with no sun

You have two weeks to join in with us so I hope to see your entry soon.

I would like to enter this at Anything But Cute as well as they have the theme The Birds and the Bees

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

  9. Oh, that's magical, Chrissie - the swirl of the birds' wings allows the eye to move around with them, and the colours are lovely both with and without the sunshine.

  10. I love that you used acetate to create your beautiful gem. I was not only impressed, I was thrilled to see a bit of your neighborhood. The homes are SO much different from those here in the states. I so enjoyed this peek into your life and your art, too!
