Journal page and tag

Hello Everyone who calls in at Jumbled Crafts and so nice of you to visit--thank you.

At Art Journal Journey the theme chosen by Valerie is Indian Summer/Golden October/ Autumn. She is such an inspiration coming up with new ideas to inspire us everyday for the challenge.

I made a digital background and used a face I altered and painted over years ago she is thinking about the falling leaves and their beautiful colours.

What used to be Twofers has come alive again and is now called Always Use Rubber. For their challenges you must use a rubber stamp and ink. The theme this time there is 'Not Everything is Black and White'

This is a large stamp and I have never used it before--it was in the bottom of a box of forgotten stamps. It is called Dolly Mama's by Joey Inc. and also has Stamps Happen Inc on the wooden part. A good solid stamp for sure.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

  2. I love how you incorporated the face with autumn leaves. It's very soulful. She certainly looks deep in thought.

    I am a HUGE fan of wood mounted stamps. I am not good with UMs or acrylics. They don't work for me, or at least not well. Not that I'm much of a stamper, but when I stamp, I prefer the wood mounted red rubber. That's why this stamp sounds adorable, and something I wholeheartedly agree with! No one ever gets hurt when I have coffee (grin).

  8. Beautiful page I think someone said soulful they are so right.

    That really is a great stamp you have used for your tag entry at AUR. When i started stamping it was all red rubber mounted on wood and that was for a reason, quality. Thank you for joining us Chrissie XOXO

  16. Chrissie - I'm not a huge fan of digital images, but that fall themed artwork is stunning! I love it! Now, on to your tag, isn't it funny how we find our old rubber stamps and put them to use so easily? I love the sentiment - LOL. Thanks for joining us at Always Use Rubber ~ Christi
