Tag and Scrapbook Page

Hello Everyone and a welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for making time in your busy lives to pop by.  Very dark and wet here again today so I guess I will be doing some crafting. Also I am knitting a cardigan, doing a 1000 piece jigsaw and going to watch the Grand Prix on television. Wonder if I will fit in a trip to town as we do need some shopping sometime?


At Tag Along this week the theme is Transport.


I have had this bicycle digi image for a long time so thought it would fit this challenge. It is from Beyond the Fringe and was free. The background is stamped with gears from a set by Chocolate Baroque and the mounting card for the digi stamp was made in Paint Shop Pro.

At Craft-Room Challenge this time the theme there is Forest Friends. Beautiful samples and inspiration from the team there as always.


I decided to make a scrapbook page as my scrapbook is very neglected and hasn't had a new page for ages.

The photographs are all our own. The carved tree we visit often and have seen how it has changed over the years. It was a tree that was due to be chopped down but a local artist rescued the bottom of it by carving the deer family. The peasant was in the snow and looked more colourful in real life with the forest floor beneath its feet. The fox cubs photograph was taken by my SIL and she sees the fox family quite often when she goes for walks.
The paper is used is a digital paper from here and the bird stamps are by Personal Impressions. The Letter and Numbers stamp set is by SEE D's and is called Large Swirl.

I am linking this to Art Journal Journey as well where the theme is Living Beings. Some wonderful entries there and all gathered together in a gallery by Susi. Well worth a visit

Hope your day goes well and that you have better weather where you are.

Love Chrissie x

What a magic page your woodland walk is. Love that tree it is wonderful seeing how artists up and down the land are turning these old trees into totems. It is grey an damp here just down the road from you as well today, perfect crafting weather.
