Journal and photographs

Hi All, hope you are well and happy today. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts

At Art Journal Journey, Valerie is hosting an Indian Summer/Autumn theme. with lots of inspiration on her blog and at AJJ.

I did a digital piece for today. The background was painted and photographed to use for other things and I will use the painted version for a project as well.

Yesterday evening we went for a walk along the edge of the sea and sun was very low in the sky casting long leg shadows. Valerie often shows these in her beautiful photographs so Vic took one of us on his phone

Our garden is full of cobwebs this morning as there is a heavy dew. They look so beautiful against the fence.

We are off now to walk along the beach into town and catch a bus to Dane's Dyke where we can do a wooded walk and forage for unusual Autumn things. I will watching leaves turn colour for sure as there are some seats carved into the fallen tree trunks.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. What a wonderful journal page, with such glowing colours - thanks for joining us again at AJJ. Love the photos, too, but be careful - taking shadow photos gets addictive! Have a fun day out, hope you take more lovely pics. Hug, Valerie

  2. I can picture you both now sitting on a fallen tree bench, listening to the wind blowing through the trees overhead while watching the leaves turning into the colours of fire. Hope you had a great walk. XOXO

  3. The long shadows are truly indicative of autumn, as is this gorgeous digital AJJ entry. It's a real beauty. I look forward to seeing photos of your unusual autumn finds. It sounds like it would be a fun trip.
