Inchie and Journal Page

Hi All. Nice to have you visit Jumbled Crafts and thank you for calling in. I hope your weekend went well and that you are looking forward to the coming week. I will be glued to the television watching the tennis from Wimbledon but with crafty things to hand to stop me falling asleep.

Every Inchie Monday this week wants to see what we enjoy-well the theme is Enjoy anyway. I enjoy making inchies and this year I have been using felt and bling on all of them. The idea was to stitch them together but I lost the first few month's of them when I cleared-up the craft room. sob sob. My intention is to redo them but I haven't got around to it yet.

At Art Journal Journey it is almost the end of the Masculine/ Feminine month and I must say there have been such wonderful ideas and art pages.

Yesterday I made lots of backgrounds with H20 paint and unusual items used as stamps I used a large jigsaw piece as stamp for this background Sorry it looks a bit creased but the journal was slightly too small for the page and I never trimmed it before it was stuck in. The images are from a book I bought to cut up for the images. It has old articles and pictures from Good Housekeeping magazines. Such a fun read. Can you imagine the females today being so thrilled with a gift like this?

Have a great day Love

  5. Oh love that little inchie! I remember getting a kettle for Xmas one year, I cannot say I was delight! Sorry to gear you list your inchies from earlier in the year.


  6. Beautiful inchie. The journal page is fun but the time goes by... Most I wonder that there on the ad is an angel helpping with the cleaner!!
    OK really heavenly gift ;)
    Your background is beautiful.
    Hugs xx

  7. Your inchie is adorable Chrissie and the page is so fun ! Love it ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  8. Wow, that inchie is beautiful Chrissie, love that butterfly crystal! Your piece totally cracked me up this morning, how much am I loving the art your making this month for the masculine feminine theme, you are so clever!! hugs :)

  9. Its a fantastic fun page Chrissie, but would not have liked a new hoover for a present/. The inchie looks beautiful as well.

  10. Very pretty little inchie heart, and your journal page sure made me laugh!

  11. Ha-ha...it must have been an interesting world for a woman in the 1920's. I wonder how women really liked getting this new and state of art vacuum?

  12. very pretty inchie with all the blind - I love me some bling. I really like your journal page too - who would want a vacuum for Christmas!

  13. Lovely inchie and your journal page is great fun.

  14. Absolutely delightful inchie - still so sad about the loss of the earlier ones... good luck if you decide to remake them all. The vintage advert is one of those where I teeter between laughter and steam coming out of my ears... it's probably just as well I live now not then!
