Journal page and Inchie

Hi All. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts today, always great when you call in.

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend and that you are looking forward to the week ahead. Today we are going to Scarborough to meet Vic's Aunt as she is staying there for a few days.

Back to School at Art Journal Journey with some terrific ideas and inspiration from Elizabeth who is the hostess for this month

The image of the girls is from Gecko Galz and it made me think of the first day back after the holidays when we all used to be bursting with news to tell each other and teacher. All more relaxed than when the lessons started. The background is a mop up page and I have run out of those so must get cracking on some more crafting with things to mop up.

Every Inchie Monday has Infinity in mind this week.

Mine isn't very original I'm afraid. Bet there are some wonderful ideas from other Inchiers.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. LOvely journal page, going back to school on the first day after the holidays was always fun. Thanks for joining us again at AJJ with another super entry. And the inchie is just right for the theme. Have a good start in the week, hugs, Valerie

  2. I love your AJJ choice today, and I was very impressed with the sentiment at the bottom. It was very original. Of course, I loved that you chose to emphasize returning to school after the holidays.

    Your inchie may not feel original to you, but I certainly liked it. It felt right to me. Hope your week is starting great!

  3. Another fabulous contribution to AJJ, love that Gecko image. Lovely inchie too. Have a great day out, here it lovely bright and sunny!

  7. Its a beautiful vintage image Chrissie, loved the thought of you having to get making so you have mop up pages to use.
    A great inchie as well.

  8. I was wondering if you have a gelli plate, Chrissie? You can make some really fun backgrounds with those in a flash (if you can bear to part with them, lol). I love how you used yours. Great inchie as well!

  9. There is only one symbol for infinity so I'm guessing that there will be quite a few that are similar this week! Nice AJJ page too :-)

  14. love the journal page, the finger painting is awesome! I do love your infinity inchie as well

  15. Love the image on your journal page, I remember those first day at school, wondering if anyone had changed or been somewhere exciting, or if I had had a new hair style. The infinity symbol will be popular this week. We are in St Ives today, with great weather.
