Journal Page

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Always nice to have you call in, thank you.

I love the beginning of the month and all the new challenges on my favourite challenge blogs.

Art Journal Journey is certainly one of my favourites and their challenge for December was chosen by dear Valerie and her theme this time is Light and Darkness

Before I show my first page for this I would like to show you a collage of my  pages for AJJ last month

It was a fun month as the theme said no leaves, no faces and no wings and I seem to have included those on a lot of my work without even realising that I had. I did put that right though and had fun doing it.

This is definitely mixed media as I used as my background a picture I painted in 2004. I changed a photograph of the painting in Paint Shop Pro for this challenge by adding various effects

Original painting-looks like a glass lighthouse?

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Love you collage-collage, good to see them all together, and your lighthouse piece is fantastic, as is the original painting. Love the quote, too. Thanks so much for joining us at AJJ again, hugs, Valerie

  2. Impressive mixed-media page.
    Have a wonderful weekend ❤

  3. Great AJJ page. I LOVE the quote. I think a lighthouse was a good choice to match it. And your collage is a lot of fun to see those pieces again. HUgs-Erika

  4. Wow, your lighthouse piece is just magical, oh how I love that quote! Beautiful Chrissie!

  5. Great collage Chrissie - lovely to see everything you created in a month as one piece.
    I really love your AJJ artwork and digi effects - really magical!
    Have a great day and lovely weekend.

  6. You had a great month at AJJ and I applaud you. It was fun to see everything you came up with.

    Your first AJJ entry this month is wonderful. The fact you used your own painting is AWESOME. Gotta love it because it shows how very, very talented you are.

  7. You made so many beautiful pages in November - what a fab collage and an adorable first entry for the new theme as well. I love how you have used the beautiful original painting for your hybrid piece!
    Thank you for all your lovely work always and so nice that you said that AJJ is one of your favourite challenges!♥♥♥

  13. Your collage is a fine idea! Yes it was really funny to realize how often we use leaves ... in our works.
    The light reflexes in your December-piece are stunning! Very clever digital work! But your original painting I like too!
