Journal Page and Tag

Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for visiting.

At Art Journal Journey Yvonne chose the theme-in my garden there is-and I have been looking at my garden very closely to find things I had forgotten about.

We do have lots of leafy plants and shrubs so this page represents them. I made a stencil by cutting out a leaf shape then used it in various ways on a painted background. To finish it off I drew flowers and then did a bit of highlighting with a white pen.

It is always healthy to grow leafy plants as they give off so much oxygen so make us feel healthy.

A fairly new blog,Go Tag Thursday, has their 4th challenge this week and the theme is Have a Heart

I used a piece of a cardboard box for the background and painted it in white and purple acrylic paint. Then I added a bit of glitter the same as on the big heart shape. On top of that I added a bought heart shape that I painted, added texture and a saying. Last thing was to add the homemade flowers and some bought butterflies.

Rain again for a change here but will be watching the Grand Prix racing and Andy Murray in the finals at Wimbledon.

Have a great day



  1. Beautiful journal page and tag, you have been busy! Thanks for joining us again at AJJ. Have a fun day and enjoy your sport. Hugs, Valerie

  2. It is a great British sport day today isn't it. It would be best if both sport venues are dry today but less clement weather over this house would suit me! Love your page and of course the sentiment is spot on. Thanks for the heads up about a new challenge I'll get the CFD team on it. XOXO

  3. A beautiful journal page and a fabulous tag. I haven't watched any of the tennis this year but I shall be watching the final this afternoon.

  9. A fabulous journal page , thats a super stencil you made for the leaves and a subject that I think we take for granted and shouldn't.
    Its gorgeous tag with the heart.
    What a TV day, Andy winning the tennis , the cycling that we recorded for after the tennis, ending with a deluge with hailstones. I'm not a Football fan, so happily giving it a miss.
