Tag and canvas

Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for dropping by.

I hope everyone is safe and that the wind and rain haven't caused you any damage where you live. It did keep us awake but we can soon catch-up on that I'm sure. At the moment it is still windy but we do have some sunshine which is lovely.

This time at Allsorts Challenge Blog the theme is brown. blue and aqua.

I thought I would try a canvas as I bought four in a pack a while ago but haven't used any of them before. First of all I used crayons on the canvas in the required colours. I then added lace and ribbon in the colours as well. The images I cut from a calendar that my daughter gave to me last year. I did recolour bits of the images to fit the challenge theme. Last thing to add was the jewels-the blue ones at the top look more aqua but they are very blue and the bottoms ones are aqua.

Next is the Tag Along Challenge for this week where anything goes so lots of scope to join in there.

Here is what I made to wish everyone a Happy New Year when it comes. I stuck foil tape to the tag and embossed it in the Tim Holtz gears folder. Then I added alcohol inks and let them spread into each other. The nesties circle is in shiny black card and I drew white dots around the edge. I cut out the glass and bottle image from a magazine then added the little label.

Have wonderful day

Love Chrissie x


  1. Wonderful tag, and I LOVE your canvas! Here it has been very windy and wet, I had to battle against the wind to walk to the discounter this morning, but at least had the wind in my back on the way home....Then the second trip was to the market, which is in the opposite direction, and I came home soaked, so warmed up in a hot bath afterwards! Take care, hugs, Valerie
