Journal Page and Inchie

Hi All. Thanks for visiting Jumbled Crafts. I hope your new year has got off to a cracking start and it continues that way for you.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is Winter Wonderland and I am the host thanks to Susi and Valerie's invite. Hope you will join in with your take on the theme.


I painted the background in acrylics then added white circles for the tree tops and shapes for the green tree. The beautiful stamp is one I got in an Astrid bundle. The snowflakes are drawn using a while pen. The tree trunk and branches are in felt tip.

A new year at Every Inchie Monday-yipee. The subject for this week is Galaxy. The list for the whole year is posted on the blog so hope you will have a go

I always try to do something different for my inchie collection each year and this year they will be mounted on jigsaw pieces that will, hopefully, fit together at the end of the year


Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Beautiful page, glad you are having fun with being host this month. Lovely inchie, too, but I will not join in, they are too small for me these days. Have a lovely day, take care, will write later, hugs, Valerie

Great inchie for Galaxy. Lovely winter page, although I am not a fan of snow! It's only fun if you don't have to shovel it or drive in it. With such a warm winter so far we haven't had much here in Southern Ontario. Used to love making snow forts as a kid, so I know it can be fun. Love the circles on your trees. Well done

Your page is lovely Chrissie -- now as we have snow here, I am much more in the mood for winter wonderland than last week! So let's continue with the theme-lol!
Thank you for being the most wonderful host again - visiting all the participants! You are a SWEETIE!!!
Your ideas for inchies are always fascinating- super that you continue the inchie year!
Have a great new week!
I will send some snow in your direction -o.k.?

What a brilliant idea to make jigsaw pieces. Love your first inchie.

The jigsaw idea is brilliant and it's a total change from last year inchies! Love your winter scene, although I have to admit I have fir tree overload syndrome!

A lovely winter page Chrissie, and I love your idea of making you inchies in the shape of a jigsaw,

It's a great theme for the month, Chrissie - and your winter landscape is lovely. So clever how you created the trees with geometric shapes and what a delightful stamp from your Astrid bundle.

Genius on the puzzle shapes for the inchies! Can't wait to see if they all fit at the end of the year.

Your page is lovely Chrissie and the stamp gives such a great look to the scene.
I do think snow is very beautiful waving its magic wand over the landscape.
How fun it will be to have an inchie adorned puzzle!
