Digital Art Page and Happy Mail

Hello Everyone. Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for calling in.

Today I have a digital creation that is for the challenge Stone Angels at Three Muses and also for Art Journal Journey where the theme is Favourite poem or quote

I used 'The Angel' by Michelangelo for the background and the rest of the collage as well. The quote is also by the master. This is such a wonderful work of his I think.

Now to my Happy Mail which arrived yesterday. It was from Valerie and had a beautiful Easter Card and also another card from Valerie and Susi to thank me for being the hostess at AJJ last month.

This is the outside of the box that everything was packed in--the postman thought it was wonderful--well so did Vic and me .

This was what was inside. Such wonders and a beautiful bag that I have already put my knitting in. The bag is what Valerie made for a challenge we gave to each other a few weeks ago. The brief was to sew something with some applique and a theme of Spring. This bag is perfect for the brief. The challenge came about as we both had been given new sewing machines that do complicated stuff we didn't know about.

This is my piece and I am sorry to say it still isn't finished as I need to do something with the back of it which looks awful. Well I am only learning about this machine.

Thank you to Valerie for the wonderful bag and goodies and for the challenge.

Have a nice day everyone

Love Chrissie xx

Love your Michelangelo quote, which is strangely also on my desk calendar this month, all in all a wonderful page, and thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey. I am glad you like your knitting/sewing bag, I was happy that I managed to get something finished! Your quilt looks wonderful,and very complicated with all those little pieces, you chose something really hard! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

I love your digi piece Chrissie, and what a wonderful quote. Your sewing is fab, my machine does more than I will ever use too, but then again so does my phone, and camera etc - it seems that it's only the washing machine and iron that I make full use of lol

Great collage Chrissie! Lovely goodies you've been exchanging too. My sewing machine is quite simple but it doesn't matter I can't control it!

The angel collage is so powerful - it is a beautiful work of sculpture. (Sadly Doctor Who has slightly destroyed my relationship with Stone Angels... if you don't know what I'm talking about, don't go looking - definitely some of the scariest ever episodes!)

So lovely of Susi and Valerie to send such great happy mail after your wildly successful month as host!
