Inchie and Canvas

Hi All. Monday again so time for an inchie and time to say thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts. Summer has arrived here and it is over 20 degrees with sun

At Twofers this time the theme is 'these are a girls best friend', you have to use a real stamp and ink so it is nice to join in and get inky again.

This 'canvas' started life a piece of packaging so not really a canvas at all. I painted it with acrylic paint and then added a picture. The picture background is Distressed Inks sprayed and the stamps are;

cat on chair- Docrafts Pampered Pets 
 The rose is an unknown stamp sent to me by a friend.

I coloured them all with Sharpies, a black pen and a white pen.

This week at Every Inchie Monday the theme is spiral

Hope these are spirals??

We did a bit of a kitchen makeover this week and decided the mug tree had to go. I thought it must have another use-------think----- it is now a hanger for all the rolls of tape I can never find in the bottom of the basket.

Have a great day




  1. Oh good idea for the tapes! I love the beautiful colours of your 'canvas' and your inchies are always spot-on. Hot here too!

  2. Beautiful inchie and rose creations. Love that mug tree as tape tree, great idea. Have a great week, enjoy the sunshine, hugs, Valerie

  3. Completely drawn to you colours on my blog feed! Wonderful creation xx

  4. Love all those ruffles on the skirt and the colours are so uplifting. I love your corrugated cardboard "canvas" too. Great idea with the mug tree... may have to borrow that!

  7. Beautiful card, and your spiral inchie is wonderful!! I am totally intrigued with your coffee mug tape roll organizer! I have an old one similar to that just sitting in the storage room!! Genius idea Chrissie! hugs :)

  8. I love your fantastic canvas and the Posh Frock, I think I may have that stamp .mmm must have a look.
    Its a super inchie, I am always amazed on how its such a small space with many details.
    A great idea for the mug tree, will have to look in the Charity shops as mine is well used.

  9. Your post is full of great ideas. So fun and clever canvas, inchie and 'tape tree'.
    Hugs ❤

  10. I am not doing Twofers also, Chrissie. (Have to go to my other blog though to see. You can get there from the Zentangle blog though.) I love your girly canvas! Yup, you did a great spiral. I think that is quite a great use for an old mug tree too!

  11. Your right A Cat, A Dress and some flowers, what more does a girl need? Great Twofers entry thank you. Great new use for the tree mug finding those rolls is always a problem isn't it. XOXO

  12. Yes, definitely spirals, great work, and love the mug tree idea.

  13. love your art- yes, they are spirals, pretty inchie - your puzzle must be beginning to get large! my goodness you have alot of tape! good idea for a mug tree

  14. These are good things for a girl to have for sure. I particularly think cat is important. A cat in the flowers, wearing a light summer smock...and a cup of something cool to drink, in a pretty cup, of Chrissie you have me having a lovely daydream with this page you made today. Enjoy your warm summer weather. Hugs-Erika

  19. Such a pretty card, and the more you look at it, the more you notice - that lovely mauve distressed corrugated card background, the sparkly butterflies in the corner, the look on the cat's face! Love the storage idea too. Thanks for joining us at twofers
