Journal Pages

Hello to everyone who calls in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit. Foggy and cold today so far so time to do some crafting I reckon.

At Art Journal Journey this month the theme is Birds, Beast and Humans and I did two pages for today.

The first one is a digital page made with a background using one of Valerie's wonderful photographs--with her permission. It shows the Loch ness Monster and two owls wondering whether he could be captured-not a good idea I reckon.

The second one I painted and it shows how rubbish I am at painting birds. 
D minus-must try harder!

Have a terrific day

Love Chrissie


  1. Both pages are wonderful, and your birds are gorgeous, so full of character - I hope they visit my balcony soon. Love how you used the photo in the first one, I will have to see if I can spot something like the Loch Ness Monster in the Rhine, that would be great!. Take top notes for your lovely work! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Forgot to say thanks in the name of Art Journal Journey! xx
