Collage and Journal Page

Hello Everyone and thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts. I am in limbo bat the moment as my daughter had a operation yesterday and I am going up to Cumbria to look after her when she gets back home. Still not a clue when that will be but, I may go tomorrow anyway, as there are few trains from here to where she lives.  I want to be sure I am there for her return home. Not a clue when I will be back in Blogland so this may be my last post for a while.

A collage of my entries for last month at AJJ

Just spent an hour making a mixed media piece for Art Journal Journey where their new theme is For the Record. The host this month is Linda and I am sure the theme she has chosen will be very popular as we are asked to think of a song that has inspired us in some way

I have chosen a Burt Bacharach song that always made me so happy way back in the 70s. He wrote the song for Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid, a film I have seen many times over the years.


The raindrops are a stamp by Ryn and the image of the man by Dezinaworld15 where the wonderful June has lots of free images to use. The other bits and bobs  and the frame were added in Paint Shop Pro.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Wonderful forest entries from last month, and I love your first musically inspired piece for the new theme. I'm not going to mention the song as I don't want to be singing it all day!

Do hope all goes well with your daughter's recovery - how lovely for her to have you there to help.
