Hello to everyone who calls in at Jumbled Crafts

Such strange weather around the world at the moment so hope you all stay safe. We have really strong winds here but nothing like on the West Coast of the UK so we are hoping it subsides soon as my daughter lives on the coast there.

Tag Tuesday have the beautiful theme Peace chosen by Wilma and you still have until Monday evening to make your tag for the theme. Any type of tag is acceptable so I made a digital one this time.

I filled a flower shape with a peace background paper then edeged it with red and added the peaceful quote and the fancy topping. If only it were true but there are so many different types of smiles?

At Try it on Tuesday their new theme is Slap it On. Definitely my sort of thing and I really enjoyed making this one.

I coated a piece of old card with Aztec Mettalics paint in various colours and just left them to run into each other for a little while. Before they dried I spinkled a few colours of glitter

When I came back to it later it had curled up at the ends and looked quite nice so I left it that way and added a cut out from a servitte and letters from magazines. How ever many magazines I save I can never find all the same type of letters needed for a project.

Love Chrissie xx

Fantasy and Circles

Hello Everyone

I hope you are safe and well. Lots of awful weather around at the moment and my thoughts are with those in the US floods.

At Art Journal Journey this month dear Yvonne has chosen the theme 'A World of Fantasy'

I have made a digital journal page with a Unicorn and Fairies. Do you believe in them or are they a fantasy?

I would also like to enter this piece at Moo Mania where the theme this time is circles. I added some bubbles to my journal page and realised after that they would fit the circles theme.

Enjoy your day

Love Chrissie xx

Peace for all at TT

Hello everyone

We have been away to Cleethorpes so haven't been around for a while. It was such a peaceful and relaxing holiday with lots of conservations areas to explore in the area,

It was good to see that the theme at Tag Tuesday is Peace that Wilma had chosen because of the date and the awful events on that day. Still lots of time to join in with a tag for this wonderful theme.

I found the dove and background on Google and the Hope colouring image on an adult colouring page. I coloured the image to match my background and added the words in white pencil. I couldn't resist adding a flower to recall my flower power days.

Here are a few photos of Cleethorpes sea front that goes on for miles and is a beautiful walk.

Have a great weekend and thank you for calling in.

Love Chrissie xx

Time/clocks Tag

Hi All

A bit cooler than of late here and it feels really nice though the forecast is for more sun and heat in the coming week. Hope the weather is good where you are in the world.

Nice that there is somewhere that asks you to make just tags as these days that is about all I make for challenges. Any format is acceptable so it is good to be able to do a digital tag when I feel like it.

This time at Tag Tuesday the theme was chosen by Joan and it is Time/ Clocks. So lots of things you can chose for this theme

I used a fairly large piece of card and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the T.H clocks embossing folder. Then I used three colours of Distressed Inks to enhanced the raised clocks. Next I dug out an old rubber stamp by Crafty Individuals with a clock and nusery rhyme on it. Not sure I have ever used it before as it was still sealed in the original bag.

Still lots of time to join in the challenge.

Love from Chrissie xx
