A bit of this and that

Hi All

A bit late in the day for me but I have been out and about and also helping a neighbour with her knitting. I hope that you are enjoying your day and nice that you called in at my blog.

At Art Journal Journey the theme for this month is being hosted by
Bluebeard and Elizabeth and it is Back to School. At Make my Monday they have the same theme so I will enter my page there as well

I made a bright background then added the girl and blackboard image. I had filled in the blackboard. I liked the school bus image so added that as well as the wonderful quote. Last of all came the frame with a scroll and mortar board.

Moo Mania and More are asking for Nature's Beauty and that means lots to choose from. I have chosen one my own photographs as the centre piece for my entry

Last but not least I have made a piece for June's cheeky challenge at Dezinaworld15 where the theme this time is Sparkle and she would like to see some gems or jewels.

The beautiful lady is one of June's images that you can get free on her blog. There are so many to chose from it is difficult to know what to chose.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Goodness, Chrissie, this is a wonderful and fun filled art experience today. Your lovely photo you used with MM&M is perfect, and the woman who wears nonboring jewelry is wonderful, but the piece you created for AJJ is beyond gorgeous. Love the colors and the way you created the blackboard and school bus. Of course, you can never go wrong with a quote by Nelson Mandela.

  2. ha ha what a fab and fun post Chrissie.
    Your AJJ piece is cool and I love your MM&M piece, great textures and lovely quote.
    And your last piece is fun - what a wonderful idea and quote :)
