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.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Wonderful tag Chrissie, love the quote from Mother Theresa. Thanks for joining us again at Tag Tuesday. Great journal page, too, the metallic and sparkles are really my cup of tea, err, coffee. Very windy here too, but the wind is warm and the comments are flying off the trees. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  5. Great tag and journal page, Chrissie

    Thank you so much for joining us at TRY IT ON TUESDAY

  6. Hi Chrissie, I love your journal page, the background sparkle is gorgeous and it's a great tag, it reminds me of 'flower power and peace in the late 60's.
    I've been a very lax blogger of late, so had a scroll down, lovely photos of Cleethorps.
    Hugs, Avril xx

  7. Beautiful tag and page! That's such a wonderful background, I love how you used the metallic paints and added the glitter to achieve that amazing sparkle - perfect 😁. Thanks so much for joining us at Try it on Tuesday! J 😊 x

  8. Your tag is the perfect example of peace. And you can't quote anyone better than Mother Teresa.

    I LOVE your autumn journal page. And I'm so glad to see it reads AUTUMN, not FALL, like we in the states like to call autumn. This is a genuine beauty.

  9. My favourite 'peace' quote from Mother Teresa who really knew what peace means... thank you Chrissie, this is such a positive and happy tag. It does make you smile! The Autumn page is also very lovely - that background is brilliant!

  10. The Peace tag looks wonderful Chrissie and I also like the quote you used.
    I love the fabulous colours and shimmer of your page you created. It is fantastic for autumn and of course I am thrilled you added it to TioT's.
    Hope you are safe in these aweful storms.

  11. An awesome background - there's nothing quite like paint allowed to 'do its own thing'! Great effects.

    Thank you so much for sharing your art with us at TIOT.
