Hi All. Hope you had a good weekend. Nice to have you call in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for visiting.
A bit of this and that today
At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Energy. Always something interesting on the inchie blog to get our brain cells working
I found a symbol for different types of energy so printed it out and stuck it on my felt inchie then added the usual bit bling
Art Journal Journal have already reached over 100 entries for their Post and Postage theme which runs until the end of July.
I painted a background with H20 paints then stamped with a bottle top and a piece of bamboo end. I found the clip art and added them to the background in Paint Shop Pro
I had this skipping rhyme going through my head and thought it fitted in nicely with the theme. I loved skipping when I was at school and we knew lots of different chants and different actions for skipping.
The person who has to jump in to skip has their name shouted out by the people turning the rope and then when the chant gets to How Many Letter--the person skipping has to touch the ground once for each letter and see how many letters of the alphabet can be said before they get caught up in the rope. No wonder we never got fat. There was a shortage of rich food anyway after the war and most things were on ration. We also played outside most of the time and the games we played were very strenuous.
History lesson over for today girls and boys.
Here are a few photographs of a wonderful walk in the tree tops through Danes Dyke. It is really back to nature. If you take the high path and if you are fit enough to descend to the low path it is magical. Rarely anyone there except on the road and the car park which is not near the paths.The sounds of birds and rustling trees are amazing and the little Treecreeper bird lives among them.
Along the path from Sewerby Cricket Ground
Passed the Golf Links
Beautiful grasses and wild flowers
Up in the tree tops. The depth can only be imagined on a photograph as it is very steep when you look down.
More of the top path
Part of the many steps that have just been built top to bottom from the road to the depths of the Dyke. Not for the fainthearted as they are quite steep and lots of them
A bit of 'nature art' I did when we reached the road-just found out it is called art bombing-thanks Sally
It is on top of the sign for the car park
Hope you enjoyed the walk
Have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
