Journal Page and Inchie

Hi All. Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit. This is a scheduled post as I should be on a train to Wales by the time it is published. Hope you have a good week and I will try to pop to your blogs if I can find an Internet connection. 

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is wave.


My mum used to have this hairstyle and every night she would wet her hair and add heavy metal clips so that the waves would be perfect next morning. It looked like torture to me and how she slept I will never know. I tried to put oe in my hair once and injured my finger with the spikes.

I found one  to show you the style but my mum's were far more lethal and much stronger than this one.

Art Journal Journey has Masculine/ Feminine as it's theme for June. If you saw my post here you will know about Sadie and her friend Miley that I drew.

Miley much prefers a day at the races to joining Sadie on her wild adventures.


Sadie is enjoying a  day at the carnival in this journal page.

Will link everything when I get back at the weekend.


Love Chrissie xx

Wonderful what you made with your girls in this collages! Fab! The inchie is nice as well.. reminds me on my great-aunt Mimi..as she had the same hairstyle in all the photos as she was a young Lady..the women at those times were very elegant and had to suffer for their beauty...lol...another aunt from me was stewardess and she told me that she ironed her hair under waxpaper to get it uncurled..as this was expected ... gosh!

Oh my gosh, lots of fantastic artwork here ! I love the little inchie and the clip on how they made those waves is interesting ! Ouch indeed, we used to sleep with sponge curlers in our hair, that was bad enough! Love your lady and the collages. Take care, Shirleyxx

Very, very, very, very clever take on the inchie.

Heather Jackson said...

Wow, that's very interesting how the women got their hair to look like that. Love your inchie! Your Sadie and Miley characters are wonderful!

oooh yeah sounds painful to me, and is it all worth it to get wavy hair, I'd rather have a good nights sleep - lol

Fab girles pages too, love how you manipulate the images and colours etc - very clever xxx

Margriet said...

Great idea for your inchie! I always wanted wavy hair, but not anymore now :-) Wonderful journal pages!

Jean Chaney said...

We went in a similar direction with the wave! I love those other pieces too!

Great work on these, my Mom also did things to her hair that used to blow my mind as a child. I do not know how she slept with all the metal curlers an toothpicks in her hair, yes toothpicks! LOL Hope you have a great time in Wales
