Try it on Tuesday has time for everyone

Still doing scheduled posts and sending apologies for not commenting on you projects but time is still not on my side unfortunately

Hi All and a warm welcome to Jumbled Crafts where today is the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will join in the challenge.

The theme for the next two weeks is Time/Clocks so lots of things you can do for this challenge. If you can't think of anything then just visit TIOT and see what our wonderful team have made to inspire you. We would like to know a little about how you made your project as it so good to see everyone's ideas.

One of my friends collects pocket watches old and new. Sometimes they get broken or don't work so they end up in my craft stash. He loves to see what I make from them. I took this one apart and used the face and the workings as a separate piece from the case. The case has a picture of Marie Antoinette with lace and pearls with flowers. The clock face has pearls around the edge with a flower and lace in the centre. I used my glue gun to join them together. I added ribbon to the top to hang it up and a tassel to the bottom decorated with flowers.


This is another picture of it against a white wall.

Have a great day and don't forget to join us at the challenge.

Tag Tuesday have Steam Punk this time so maybe some of your projects, if they are tags with clocks, will fit in with both challenges

 This one is mixed media with printed digital background and cut out butterfly and metal embellishments
This one is digital.

Steam Punk at Tag Tuesday

Scheduled post with a thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts and an apology for lack of commenting on your posts. I am taking a blog break but there are still scheduled posts in the pipeline and I am trying to comment on Tag Tuesday entries and on my share of the Try it on Tuesday entries as well.

Tag Tuesday have Steam Punk as the theme for the next 2 weeks chosen by team member Joan


I made the background in Paint Shop Pro from a collection of clock images.
The hat and clock were printed out on card and raised up with pads to make them stand out and the top has a gold chain that has just needed to be used on something for a very long time.

Hope to see you at the challenge

Try it on Tuesday still has another week for the My Friend challenge so you could do a project with a real or imagined friend on it and join in with us for the challenge.



This is just to say that the next person you meet could become your best friend-you never know. It has the first words of the wonderful Diana Ross recording

My Friend at TIOT


 I have decided to take a blog break but there will be some scheduled posts that I have had ready for a while as they are DT projects

.Hello Everyone. Thank you for calling in and I hope you are ready for our new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesday. Great ideas from the team as always so do join us if you can.

The theme this time is MY FRIEND and it could be human, animal or imaginary. 


I made a digital scrapbook page of me and my very best friend, husband Vic. We have been together for 28 years and have had quite a lot to face in those years but it has always been together so the troubles have been halved.

This is us on a train listening to our music though we do chat a lot as well on journeys it is nice to drown the sounds of a screaming child or someone coughing loudly.


I changed it to black and white so it could be on a muted background page.

Hope to see you are the challenge

Also hope to see you at the Tag Tuesday challenge where the theme this time is Paris and you have another week to join in there.

At Tag Tuesday this time Wendy has chosen Paris as the theme for the next two weeks


This is a digital tag with things I found here and there on Google


This is a tag using part of an old birthday card, a digital design I did in Paint Shop Pro and some stamped images I had in my collection

You also have another week to join us Try it on Tuesday for the theme Stitch It where you just have to add some stitching real or faux to your project.



This is a revisited project I did a few years ago. You can see the original posts here
