Journal page and tag

Hi All from a very sunny NE UK Coast. This is the second day it has been sunny and I am getting used to it after all the dark and dreary days of late. Thank you for joining me here at Jumbled Crafts.

At Art Journal Journey this month Yvonne has chosen Out and About as her theme and it all going so well with wonderful ideas from the people who have entered.

I adapted one of my photographs for this page in my digital journal. It is from a photograph I took by the canal in Driffield last year

I would like to enter this at More Mixed Media as well where anything goes but this time they have an optional green twist as well.

Go Tag Thursday have quote or verse for their theme this week

This is quite a large tag as I wanted to use an owl from a colouring book. I have lots of them and this book is called MINDFUL OWLS by J. Benson. I  just use cheap felt tips in the colouring books as the paper is really good quality. An interesting quote question I think. I would be 38 about half my real age. It would mean never ever looking in a mirror again.

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx


  1. A fabulous page for AJJ Chrissie ! Thank you ! Your tag is gorgeous! I hope you enjoy your super weather! I was outside in the sun as well just now... amazing to have here as a guest today !

  2. I love the AJJ entry. I agree that nature is a LOT cheaper than therapy. And it's a beautiful entry, too.

    That tag made me smile. I would stay 25 forever, if I could. I love your owl, and the question is quite thought provoking, which makes the owl very, very wise indeed.

  3. A fabulous page and tag Chrissie. The quotes are great, I do agree on nature being a therapy, the page you created looks awesome.
    Now to the quote on the tag, I would say 45 was an ideal age for me. Kids grown, up, a new career and freedom to do as we pleased again. Then to the next age milestone and being retired when each day is taken as it comes.

    Cute owl tag, I've seen the sentiment before, and it never gets old (pun intended) ;))

  10. A lovely serene page Chrissie and I love the tag - it's a wonderful quote - I think I would be about 35 - and stay that age.
