Journal Page and Face

Hello Everyone. I am a bit late today as I had my last session with the dentist and we are also still going almost every day to visit MIL at home as she is very frail at the moment and even with lots of carers etc needs extra help that they don't do. Hope your day has gone well and thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts on your blog travels.

At Art Journal Journey there is still the theme Autumn Colours and wonderful artwork from the entries so far

I have another page with real leaves that I collected a couple of days ago. The cold weather and strong winds mean there are hardly any leaves left on the trees but the pathways are ankle deep in wonderful shapes and colours. I brought some home and drieid them out a bit them stuck them to a painted background and wrote my words in white pen.

My face for Kim Dellow this week is just one I made up

Not sure why I stuck pins in her but I think it may be how I was feeling at the time I drew her in charcoal and chalk.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Love the journal page with the leaves, lovely colours. Sorry Mollie is so frail, will write tomorrow morning, glad you got the dentist finished. Perhaps the lady is having acupuncture.... Hugs, Valerie

  2. You have quite hard time. Thank you for you however kindly make visits and leave comments, dear Chrissie.
    Your page is fab and lady very expressive, fun, too‼
    Have a great weekend ♥

  3. These leaves are beautiful... good idea to use them in your art! I don't know if I should laugh at your lady's predicament or cry... but she does look a tad uncomfortable!

  4. Loving those autumn leaves! Maybe when the pins are removed the lady will feel great! :) xx

  5. Sorry to hear that your MIL is still so frail, I hope you see an improvement soon! I love the page you have made with those beautiful leaves! Oh Chrissie! I hope that the needles are acupuncture ones and that they start to work soon! Hugs, Chrisx

  6. Gorgeous autumn colours on your page Chrissie. I hope the pins work some magic to make the lady feel better soon. Take care of your self Chriisie and I hope that your MIL will be getting all the outside help that she must be needing.

  9. I`m so in love with that journal page Chrissie. I love that you collected some leaves, something I totally plan to do next year! Wonderful rich colours! Regarding your woman...have you ever seen 'Hellraiser'?haha! hugs :)

  10. So sorry to hear that you have such a hard time with MIL ! Hope at least the denstit appointments came to a happy end now! I love this beautiful page and the face is very expressive. It helps to make art to relax after not so nice days! Thinking of you dear Chrissie! Thank you for joining us at AJJ again and again with your fab ideas and pages!

  11. Fab new header (apologies if it's been there for ages and I've only just noticed!). Glad to hear your dental visits are done. It sounds as though you've quite enough going on with looking out for your MIL. Hope you are finding some time for you too.

    It looks as though you are from your fabulous journal page. I love the rich colours of your leaves - well collected - and the white words really pop.

    Great face, especially with the drama of the pins sticking in - that tells a real story about what's going on inside.

  12. Love your Autumn leaves Chrisie really lovely colours. I think it does us good to stick pins in people sometimes lol. I hope your MIL starts to improve now that she's back home. Enjoy your weekend. Sue xx
