A mixture

Hi All. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts today. 

We have sunshine again and have had sunshine for the last few days so have been out and about to make the most of it. Hope it is nice where you are and that you haven't had the horrendous storms that have caused damage and cost lives in other parts of the world. I am thinking of the people who are affected by these awful happening.(((( ))))))

I have made a tag for three challenge blogs as I seem to have gone astray with crafting challenges at the moment and I forget that I add more to my list most days. The photograph was taken with my dream catcher as a background and I am going to leave it there as it adds some colour.

Beccy's Place  the theme is anything you like so long as you use one of her images. That isn't difficult at all as she has wonderful images and lots of them are free and some already coloured. The one I used is 'Clematis' and was already this beautiful colour

Tando has the theme 'Life is too short to be anything but happy' I made an add on with the quote which I love, and also some Tando Butterflies-sprayed and wet embossed with clear embossing powder.

Butterfly Challenges I only just found this blog but hope to be able to join in future challenges. They have a Bingo challenge this time and I chose Wet Embossing-Butterflies- Flowers. I coloured my butterflies and wet-embossed them with clear embossing powder. They are quite shiny in real life.

Thank you for the challenges and I hope it ok  to combined them.

Now to my digi collage indulgence for this week. At The Three Muses the theme is 'Underwear'

At last I get to use a David Beckham pic and he is wearing a vest :) I created the coloured background with layers and brushes and the other underwear images are a mixture of brushes and Googled images.

Have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie x

  3. We're lucky enough to have some sunshine this morning, and I keep meaning to head out into it, and then I think - Oh, one more visit... Glad I did, just to see your D.B. digi collage is worth it!! Love how you've layered the colours and corsets all over him - a great take on the challenge theme.

    The tag is lovely too... when I first glanced at it, I saw blackberries - my brain conflating the flowers and the butterflies!!
