Collage Obsession and Photographs

Hi All. Beautiful sunny day here and I am hoping that all of you less fortunate will stay safe and have better weather soon. Lovely of you to call in at Jumbled Crafts-Thank you 

At Collage obsession this week the theme is Goddess.

I choose various parts of the same painting as I think it is so beautiful. Hope you do too. I have a mania for making brushes for Paint Shop Pro at the moment so I used a couple of those to show that Venus was the Goddess of Love.

Here are some pics of a walk we did the other day-all along the seafront then into Sewerby Park and straight to the Centenary walk. It is a quiet wooded part of the busy park and always something new to see when we go there.

Oyster catchers along the cliff top
                           Leafless trees against the beautiful sky
A new addition that someone has donated--well used by the many birds-next time we will take some bird treats to add to the table

            Aconites and Moss growing on an old bit of tree root

Thought this looked like a big 'C' so will watch it with interest in the future.

                              Lots of snowdrops growing under the trees everywhere

Also carpets of Aconites which are so beautiful close up

Vic enjoying the day

 Me looking serious because I am having dental work done on my front teeth and smiling hurts at the moment :( It will be March before it is finish.

Have a great day everyone or sleep well if it is evening when you visit

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Gorgeous artwork today Chrissie and I just love the photos from your walk! That one of the blue sky with the silhouetted trees is postcard perfect! hugs :)

  2. Lovely photos, looks like you had a great day out. Loved seeing the oyster catchers, haven't seen them in years. You collage is beautiful, too, it really is a wonderful painting! Nice photos of you 2, too! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Lovely, Afrodite is from the Grecian mythology and Venus Italian. I've seen in Cyprus the point they say she has rosen from the sea. There is a stonen monument and the gorgeous scene over the sea.
    Have a happy weekend Chrissie,
    hugs xx

  4. Ah Chrissie you have taken me into your world and love everything I see. LOVE your work of art. It's magnificent and so what I used to do on my PSP when testing tutorials....love it.xxx

  5. Gorgeous piece and photos!What a great place you live in.

  6. Gorgeous college, love it very much. And wow the flowers are beautiful, we have 5 feet of snow and it was minus 25 C this week but it's warmed up to a 'balmy' minus 8 today. It will be a long time before we see flowers, probably two months. Beautiful photographs! Have a great weekend, Shirleyxx

  7. Beautiful collage Chrissie. Lovely photos you shared today, spring is on its way when you see the those beautiful flowers in bloom.

  8. Lovely ocean art, and I enjoyed the walk in the park with you!! Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos, Chrissie!

  9. Beautiful pictures and Botticelli the ultimate goddess...good-luck with the dentist.

  10. Wonderful photos from your day out (and I hope your dental treatment goes well and allows for more smiling soon). The Botticelli digi collage is wonderful - I love how the brushes soften the edges of the images. Glad to hear you're enjoying some sunshine - we had a brief glimpse this morning, but there's much more springtime joy in your photos than in our weather for the rest of the day.
