Hello springtime - *ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* March 2019

Jo from Let's Art Journal is this month's host at *ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY*
A nice topic where everything begins...

Then it's time to build a nest, to sing and buzz and the life has to start again.


The little bird is inspired by Geninne D. Zlatkis's from her book
"Birds in Watercolor, Collage and Ink", a great book
recommended by Claudia from Steampunk challenges.


I have used Dina Wakley paint and stencil. Some ink and pen.


Photo from a small park located right by where we live.
There I saw a small branch that I took home.


I wish you a good spring month, hugs Susan

Fossils - journal page and ATC

Welcome dear blog readers, this time it's a long post, I hope you will like it !

Come play with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges 

Fossils are some of the things I love to gather on the beach, and I become dizzy by thinking about how old these can be...




I am having fun experimenting, first with the colors of my gelli plate. I have tried to hit tones from the beach and sea, afterwards with different media with my stencil.
I have used stencil and stamp designed by Andy Skinner.


I have used different crayons to achieve depth and fullness.


Here are some details.


I have used DecoArt media:
Crackle paste, Crackle glaze, Black and white gesso
 DecoArt media fluid acrylics:
Titan buff, Dioxazine purple. Quinacridone gold, Quinacridone burnt orange,
Transparent yellow iron oxide, Translucent white, Cadmium orange hue,
Cobalt Turquoise hue, Yellow green light.
DecoArt stencil Andy Skinner Fossil and Industrial elements.
Andy Skinner stamp: ASCRS03, ASCRSH AS Fossils and
ASCSA5018 Tempting Textures.


One of my experiments was cut into ATCs.
Then stamped on tissue paper with Andy Skinner Stamps Fossils.

 I also used color pencils, wax, shapie pen, tea bags, thread,
sewing machine and tissue paper.





Come and play with us in March, at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges.
Maybe you're lucky to win big prizes.

I wish you all a fantastic month and now there is not long time to spring. ;-))
Hugs, Susan

The little girls

Old photos are always interesting, when I saw this I thought these girls were very
quiet, thoughtful and awaiting.
The girls had to have a frame that, like backing up the
atmosphere this image radiated.


I have made various pieces of 250g papers with different textures,
cut into strips and put together again with canvas fabric and
a small piece of fabric with embroidery


I have used: DecoArt media
crakle paint, paste and DecoArt matte medium, Black and white gesso
DecoArt media fluid acrylics:
Titan buff, Raw umber, Prussian blue hue, Quinacridone burnt orange
and Quinacridone gold
DecoArt media Antiquing cream
Tando Creative Masks/cogs


Design paper, gear, embroidery thread, ink to the edges and an old photo


I hope you liked my frame, here are some details.




Come visit and take part in the challenge at
we would love to see your project.


I wish you a nice February with lots of light
Hugs, Susan

Vintage -*Art *Journal *Journey* - November 2018

A new challenge on AAJ, which is being hosted by Erika from  BioArtGal
I chose to make a "raggedy" as vintage and Nik the Booksmith has inspired me.
It's scrap that has been on my desk for a long time.

And Erika found a wonderful theme.

I have written on my flower card:
"The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all."

(It's a quote and I can not remember who has said it.)






My raggedy will live in my 22x22 cm dylusion journal as a lovely reminder of freedom to attend *Art*Journal*Journey.

I wish everyone a really good November month.
Hugs, Susan
