Face and photographs

Hello Everyone. Weekend today for us and I am looking forward to my usual sport fest on television. Mostly rugby this time as it is the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup. 
Thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts.

I have another face to join in at Kim Dellow's Show Your Face

The face was drawn in chalk then cut out and added to a flowery background. I am still trying to create different types of face drawing but they all seem to end up in the same style.

I thought I would fit in a few photographs as this is the only 'craft' project I have to show you

My daughter sent me a large shoe box full of crafting goodies--she doesn't like me to get bored for sure. Some' new to me things' so I am looking forward to trying those

We went to Leeds on Wednesday and there is a really wonderful idea to hide work that is being done on some of the old, historic buildings. They have erected screen paintings of the building and all the work and scaffolding is behind the screens. This is a huge screen as far as you can see in the photograph.  How cool is that? You should never go to Leeds and not look upward for most of the time as the buildings above the beautiful shops are just amazing and a step back in time.

There are wonderful arcades full of amazing shops and we found this decorated piano in one of the arcades. It had a notice inviting anyone to sit and play it, so I had a go. Fortunately it was quite early so not many people around.

Didn't have a camera with us so Vic took the pics on his phone.

Have a really lovely day whatever you are doing.

Love Chrissie xx

  11. Hi Chrissie...
    I love your face - the way you have used the background works so well that it looks she is wearing it as a top/dress too (hope that made sense ).
    I love LOVE the photo of you and the piano - isn't that fabulous and can you play?
    Have fun with your new crafting goodies and rugby!

  12. I really like the softness of the face created in chalk. Leeds looks like such an exciting city. I have only been there once, many years ago for a job interview! xx
