*A*J*J* - We are going....Out in nature in the City

Thanks to Chris for a nice theme and your journal page is great.!
This year we will play tourists in our own city, here are many
beautiful places that we usually do not go to.


I started by painting a little landscape with my brayer. My journal lay overnight,
and then in the morning I saw a face ... I think it's mother nature.
There is used pastel and gouache and finally a little with a white pen. 


 It's a hollyhock taken right by our entrance.



I wish you good summer holidays with wonderful experiences out in the nature.
Thanks for visit my blog. Hugs, Susan

Words to live by - *Art*Journal*Journey* June

Hello Minnesota!
New challenge at **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* with the host
Halle from Halle's Hobbies...
I experiment with a limited of color group with 4 acrylic colors and pastels that fit.
I have also chosen a neon pink to give a little life.
On two pages I have tried to make some fun.


Why have I written "Embrace the weirdness"
on my flower page, is because sometimes I forget to draw
and paint in my journal, and when I do, it must always be nice
and it must be understandable for those who look at it.
I have to remember to be a little crazy...


We were a trip to the garden "Frederiksberg Have",
which is planted with the finest shrubs, trees and flowers.


A nice rhododendron.


I'll be more free to "make cool things" 
In the past I was very bound by what is right and what is wrong,
and there is certainly not something that is right and wrong.
I remember in particular that I was told that you do not mix
the different media like watercolor and black ink an so on.


Well that was a lot of words, hoping you could keep out my talk.
It was a great challenge that came from Minnesota,
thanks to Halle and AJJ it's always exciting to participate.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you a great June
Hugs, Susan

Fragments... June challenge on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

A small journal with fragments and thoughts
made with T.H. Sizzix die the matchbook. Size 8x9 cm

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


I love making small journals, this one is with 2 signatures,
and with all the worn and beloved colors from DecoArt.


With all the great journals on the internet I feel very inspired there is something for
everyone's taste and there is nothing right or wrong.




Paste and crackle on my cover, I am so very happy with and the small fragments
and marks on the pages I think it fit really well.


It's fun to play with different marks, it's something that has crept into my
projects during the last few years.


The use of sewing machine and black thread
gives me a great sense for the small fragments




The little things beside my journal are parts of my life that I have had for some years.


All the fine stamps from Andy Skinner are really good for my subject.




The golden and brown burned colors are my favorites




I have used: DecoArt Media White gesso, Crackle paste  and Crackle paint
Americana Decou-page matte
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics: Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Violet,
Quinacridone Brunt Orange, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Teal Hue and Yellow Oxide
Andy Skinner Stamps: ASCRS05 and ASCRS04
Andy Skinner Stencil ANDY107




I hope you liked my little journey even though it was a lot of pictures,
so thank you for sticking out.

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

I wish you a nice June with good sunshiny days hugs, Susan

My head is in the clouds

"In the Sky/In the Air"
Erika from BioArtGal hosts the Art Journal Journey May challenge.

I have doodled and glued small pieces of gelli papers to my journal page.
I started with intuitively drawing lines with pencil, then I found a face, bird and some trees, yes it ended like you can see... LOL









Thank you for visiting my blog, I really appreciate it.
I wish you a wonderful month and that there will be more heat in the weather because here in Copenhagen it has hailed and rained and the temperature has been almost as winter.
Hugs, Susan

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
