Collage and card

Hi All. Hope you are well and happy and enjoy what you find here at Jumbled Crafts today. I always appreciated a visit and the wonderful comments that are left on my posts--thank you :)

This week at Collage Obsession the theme is handwriting. I can't imagine doing that these days. I either print or do scribble that no one else can read. 65 years ago I won a pen because my handwriting was so beautiful-how times change eh? We used to have handwriting lessons in the olden days :)

With that in mind I did this digital collage then printed it out and did some of my printing and a tiny bit of my hand writing

I would like to enter this at Try It On Tuesday as well

The Craft Room Challenge this time to a colour challenge with a beautiful photograph and colour pallet as inspiration

Here is the card I made using the colours and part of the image

I made two background papers using the colours the digitised part of the picture to make a topper for my card.

These are the papers if you would like them--they both fit onto an A4 sheet of paper.

Have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie x

  10. These are both fabulous! Your handwriting is brilliant! Love the colours on the card and love how you incorporated the picture xx

  11. Nice digi piece!
    I do LOVE your flowers!!

  12. Love all that amazing script in your handwriting piece - and the globe is fabulous! I'm very sad about the demise of handwriting - I think you have a different relationship with a word when you shape it cursively with your hand than when you tap it into a computer and all letters are completely the same. Can also remember handwriting practice with specially lined paper - sorry, you've tapped into one of my little obsessions!

    Beautiful spring colours in your digi-papers, and thank you for offering them up so generously.

    Have a lovely weekend!
