Triplicate and Tags

Hi Everyone and thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts. Welcome to Eileen my latest follower and she takes the number up to 149. Thank you to all of my followers, many have been with me since I started out my blog journey at the beginning of 2011 and it has been wonderful to get to know people along the way.

At Tag Tuesday our theme this time is Birds and nest and  you still have until late on Monday to join us with your take on the theme.

Not a tag from me today but a tale of this sweet little bird. We were sitting in our little conservatory reading and all was quiet when there was loud bang and the little bird fell onto the lawn after hitting the glass. It was there for ages but we waited and saw it open one eye then it stood for a while before flying up onto the fence. Next thing we knew it was off on its travels once again.

Moo Mania and More have triplicate as their theme this time.

I made a triptych with a painted background done in thick acrylic paint. The pictures I cut from a piece of wallpaper-it has three lanterns and three sprays of flowers.

At Go Tag Thursday this week the theme is Vintage

I used a white card and did a cut out in one corner and sprayed parts of the white with Dylusions spray in. The picture I found on a free to use site and I added fancy edging. Then I added a piece of the wall paper that I used in the project before this one.

Have a great day Everyone

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Wow - your Tryptich is brilliant dear Chrissie! Thank you so much for joining Moo Mania & More! What a pleasure to have you with us and with such a beautiful piece! The vintage tag is so feminine and I like how fabulous you used that lace on it. Lovely little titmouse - yes, they get blacked out for a short time often, when they fly against something.... always good to see that they haven't hurt theme.
    Happy Thursday Chrissie!

  2. Beautiful projects Chrissie - the pink flowers are really lovely.
    Glad to hear that poor little Blue-tit was ok and flew off :)
    Have a great day... Gill xx

    nice Day

  4. Wow Chrissie your art is a real treat! What a cute little Bluetit - glad he is OK! Hugs, Chrisx

  5. What a lovely post to day, Chris. All in my favorite colours :))
    I'm happy, that the sweet little bird got to make its way forward.
    Have a wonderful day xx
    P.S. We have had a couple of sunny days at last.

  6. Gorgeous tags, and lovely story about the bird. glad it recovered. Hugs, Valerie

  7. What a wonderful story about the little bird. Glad it was a happy ending for you and the bird.

    Your triptych is beautiful. I love how you recycled the wallpaper and turned it into gorgeous art.

    Your tag is also wonderful. I can tell that nothing goes to waste in your home. I'm sure others would have sent the excess wallpaper to the recycle bin, but you found the perfect way to incorporate it into a fabulous embellishment.

  8. Oooh wow, love your new log header, very jazzy and fun xx

  9. The triptych looks gorgeous Chrissie, loved the lanterns and flowers. Its a beautiful vintage tag as well.
    I am pleased the little bird flew away safely after hitting your window. I think it would have been quite a shock for you all.

  10. Crissy, what a beauty filled post!
    Your photo of that precious bird is wonderful! So happy to hear he recovered!
    The triptych you created is fabulous! I just love the flowers and colors you chose.
    and of course, your tag is just perfect for a spring bride- so lovely!

    hugs, Jackie

    thank you for stopping at my blog and leaving such a nice comment!")

  11. Poor little chap - glad he was okay. Love your glorious floral triptych - uplifting colours and terrific fussy-cutting - and you've framed that vintage photo perfectly.

  13. AW! we have a couple of birds doing the same thing, silly things LOL.

    Fabulous tryptych, love the flowers and your tag is fabulous.
    AND a new header, wonderful.

  14. Love your triplicate and the Vintage tag is after my own heart! I had to check when I started my own blog, and, it turns out a month or so later than yours! I never thought this adventure would turn out the way it did, but I'm so glad I took the plunge.

  15. Love these Chrissie, you must have known when you bought the wallpaper that it would come in useful lol. I'm so glad the bird is ok, I never clean our windows just so this doesn't happen to us ;-) It's good to be back home and catching up in blogland! Have a great week. Sue xx
