Try Something New at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All and a warm welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for visiting and I am sure you will be here to see the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday where my team mates have made some wonderful projects to inspire you. For this 'Something New' theme you can make anything you like so long as it has something new to you on it. It might be a new product, a new technique or, like me, something you have never made before.

I made a Pocket Letter. I have seen wonderful ones made by other people and really wanted to try one

I bought this A4 picture a long time ago at York Museum and it was just right to cut into ATC cards to use as the back of my pocket letter. I dabbed a bit of Distressed ink here and there to match the front of my letter.

The front of the cards are covered in bits of scrap paper and edged with the Distressed ink. Bits of this and that were added but the star product on each was new to me and sent to me by my lovely blog friend Valerie. You will see her work at TIOT.
 The 'new to me' product is the the bling which is in strips and called Royal-Schmuck.. That could be the maker as it isn't in English I don't know. It has added so much to the project and means that the whole letter has something that ties it together.

Now it's your turn so do join in and have fun

Love Chrissie xx

Big love for this creation, Chrissie. I love that all those tiny collections of lace, ephemera and embellishment are on the back of that wonderful photograph - beautifully put together, lovely inking for the touch of age. Brilliant!
