Autumn Halloween at Tag Tuesday

Hi All

A new theme at Tag Tuesday and this time it was chosen by Valerie. All you have to do is make a tag anyway that your chose and the theme is Autumn/Halloween so lots of scope with this one.


The recent very strong winds have brought down lots of branches from our roadside trees so I collected a few bits that had berries on them and used a couple to make this tag. The quote I found on Google and thought it was really lovely.


I used my large glue gun to stick on the leaves and berries and a happy accident was the glue trails as they reminded me of 'A Single Thread from Spider's Web' (not my words as they are from a Katie Melua song). I made more threads and added them here and there as on a damp autumn morning spiders seem to have woven lace everywhere in our garden. My web hasn't a pattern unfortunately.

Have a great day and I hope you enjoy making your tag for the theme

Love Chrissie xx

TT and TIOT

Hello to everyone who calls in at Jumbled Crafts

Such strange weather around the world at the moment so hope you all stay safe. We have really strong winds here but nothing like on the West Coast of the UK so we are hoping it subsides soon as my daughter lives on the coast there.


Tag Tuesday have the beautiful theme Peace chosen by Wilma and you still have until Monday evening to make your tag for the theme. Any type of tag is acceptable so I made a digital one this time.


I filled a flower shape with a peace background paper then edeged it with red and added the peaceful quote and the fancy topping. If only it were true but there are so many different types of smiles?

At Try it on Tuesday their new theme is Slap it On. Definitely my sort of thing and I really enjoyed making this one.


I coated a piece of old card with Aztec Mettalics paint in various colours and just left them to run into each other for a little while. Before they dried I spinkled a few colours of glitter



When I came back to it later it had curled up at the ends and looked quite nice so I left it that way and added a cut out from a servitte and letters from magazines. How ever many magazines I save I can never find all the same type of letters needed for a project.

Fantasy and Circles

Hello Everyone

I hope you are safe and well. Lots of awful weather around at the moment and my thoughts are with those in the US floods.

At Art Journal Journey this month dear Yvonne has chosen the theme 'A World of Fantasy'


I have made a digital journal page with a Unicorn and Fairies. Do you believe in them or are they a fantasy?

I would also like to enter this piece at Moo Mania where the theme this time is circles. I added some bubbles to my journal page and realised after that they would fit the circles theme.

Enjoy your day

Love Chrissie xx

Peace for all at TT

Hello everyone

We have been away to Cleethorpes so haven't been around for a while. It was such a peaceful and relaxing holiday with lots of conservations areas to explore in the area,

It was good to see that the theme at Tag Tuesday is Peace that Wilma had chosen because of the date and the awful events on that day. Still lots of time to join in with a tag for this wonderful theme.



I found the dove and background on Google and the Hope colouring image on an adult colouring page. I coloured the image to match my background and added the words in white pencil. I couldn't resist adding a flower to recall my flower power days.

Here are a few photos of Cleethorpes sea front that goes on for miles and is a beautiful walk.






Have a great weekend and thank you for calling in.

Love Chrissie xx
