"Creature Comforts" - *ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY - OKTOBER 2018

Linda from heARTfullyinspiredby Linda is the host on *AJJ* and the theme is "Creature Comforts"
Thank you Linda for the inspiration.

I immediately came to think of our vacation, at the North Sea,
where there were lots of insects.
One night I managed to get 20 mosquito bites and I'm pretty bothered and my advice is to rub with raw onions, it helps on my mosquito bite and yet I miss that lovely summer.






A little greeting from the North Sea where the fishing boats are pulled up on the beach.


I wish you a creative weekend and the month of October with lots of inspiration.
Hugs, Susan

Survivoring Halloween ...

October is Halloween, and different artists have good examples of what meaning it is for them.
I feel scared in the dark ...

Here is the beginning of a poem by Robert Graves

THE SURVIVOR COMES HOME

Despair and doubt in the blood:
Autumn, a smell rotten-sweet:
What stirs in the drenching wood?
What drags at my heart, my feet?
What stirs in the wood?


Once in a blasted wood,
A shrieking fevered waste,
We jeered at Death where he stood:
I jeered, I too had a taste
Of Death in the wood.


 Here's what I've used:
DecoArt Media Gesso White, Black and Paste
Andy Skinner/Tando Creative stencil Skullduggery
Andy Skinner/DecoArt stencil Incoqnito


 Archival ink, art journal, fabric with rust, gaze, cardboard, quote chips,
charcoal and watercolor






Forgive if I'm too serious.
One of my favorite writers is Robert Graves and his poem fits my feelings
on this journal page.

I wish you a creative month and come join us

Hugs, Susan

A mini box with three small stories...

Dear readers our September challenge on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk is started
and here's my little story ...



This little story begins with the box
was found under an excavation where a new metro station will be built.


Three records were discovered ...


Which is about the old laboratory which once stood in the middle of the city.


The journals have a fine marbled cover.

I have used:


DecoArt media Black and White gesso
Texture sand paste, Crackle paint and Matte medium
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Cadmium Orange Hue, Cobalt Teal Hue and Quinacridone Gold
Andy Skinner stamp ASCSA5018

(I had this small metal box of 6.0 x 3.5 cm that needed rust makeover.)
Tim Holz stamps, paper pad, distress ink, Archival ink, gear from Amazon and NeoColor ll


(I have made the marblering with the colors and a spartel that I have drawn along the paper.)


Picture of first lady who stands for everything in the old laboratory...


(Here the colors are placed on the stamps with Neocolor ll.)








I hope you forgive me for the long post and if you have reached that far, I wish you would like to play with us on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges.
Hugs, Susan

Lights in the Workshop


I started with my tag and some gears, and painted my three colors as shown, but I always change the colors.


Here are all the colors I used:
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics: Translucent White, Cadmium Orange Hue, Cerulean Blue,
Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Oxide and Quinacridone Gold.
DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic Yellow


Even though it's bright and summery, I always have my light on when I work, so I wonder how it was working in dark basements when the machines should run.


I have used Boozybear's amazing Pulley Industrial Light.


From the desk: Canvas, cotton, gear, cardboard and wax.


Come over and play with us and there are great prizes to win.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you a creative day.
Hugs, Susan

Steampunk Shrine

This time it was a shrine to my cherished street finds.
My city is constantly renovating buildings, and there are good finds of rusty screws and other lovely things.


 I had cut the front of the cardboard and the box was done. Everything was glued together and painted with black gesso.


Random places I painted with crackle glaze and sand paste. Marks were also set with a stencil and modeling paste.


And I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics: Quinacridone Gold and Yellow Oxide
DecoArt Americana Decou-Page matte
DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream and Titanium White
DecoArt Media Gesso Black, Crackle Glaze, Modeling Paste, Texture Sand Paste and Liquid Glass


From my desk: Brads, box, cardboard, gears, stencil, rubons,
embossing powder and wire.
Found rust screws and some shells from sea urchins


Little details...


I look forward to seeing you, so come join us on


Thanks for your visit to my blog and I wish you a wonderful creative day.
Hugs, Susan
