Journal Page and digital card

Hello Everyone and thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts. Not sure where this week has gone but it seems to be hurrying by at a great rate of  knots. We are clearing the bathroom ready for some work doing on Friday and I hadn't realised how much we keep in this small space.

Art Journal Journey has 'If you go Down in the Woods' for the whole of January. Chris chose this great new theme which opens our ideas to fun and beauty. She will be hosting this all of the month and has done wonderful pages already.

I used one of my own photographs that was taken on my phone so not a very good one really but it made a good background when played about with in Paint Shop Pro

At  Digitally Sweet the theme for this month is 'Spring is in the Air'

This is what Spring meant to me after jumping on the scales this morning. The image was from a Stock Blog years ago. I just checked and it is still there but now you only have one free download then have to pay to join.
The paper was a free download from here and I changed the colour to match my digicard. I am going to print this out and stick it on the fridge door. Help yourself if want to join me.

Off to clear some more stuff from the bathroom. If I make some space in the cupboards I could store crafty things in there :)

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

  2. Great pieces today! I love your woodland scene, those owls and raccoons have stolen my heart. Your spring piece made me laaaaaugh! What a hoot you are Chrissie! hugs :)
