They who have wings at Try It on Tuesday

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for your visit and I hope what you find here will inspire you to join in the challenge. If you would like inspiration you can go here to see what the rest of team have made and their wonderful and varied ideas.

Try it on Tuesday's new theme is 'They who have Wings' and I just kept it simple and chose a bird even though you can invent lots of things with wings I'm sure.

I made a journal page. Firstly I painted the thick paper with white acrylic then dropped a few colours of alcohol ink here and there until it covered the white. When it was dry I drew flower and leaf shapes around the ink splodges to make the background. The dove shape is a template I have had for a long time and you can cut on the dotted line to make the wing stand up for cards etc. The 'keep calm and create peace' is from a book of Keep Calm quotes that I bought to use for projects. I drew the peace branch and leaves and tied the keep calm tag with a bit of blue embroidery silk.

I am also going to enter this at Art Journal Journey as it is the last day of the Things with Wings challenge where I was hostess for March. Thank you to Susi and Valerie for inviting me and to everyone who entered the challenge-it was amazing to visit all of your blogs and see your works of art. I hope you will join in with their next challenge for April.

Bye for now

love Chrissie xx
