**ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* Animals from A to Z

We must take care of our Earth, we are all very vulnerable to all the influences that we create.
It's a good idea and an exciting theme the new host Rike from Rike's Art has suggested for a journal page!


Rike has inspired me to make this journal page.





I wish everyone a good day. Hugs, Susan

February 2018 - SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges - The Home Key

My #8 tag is a tribute to our 31 year old home, and in it is gathered all our memories.


I started using the colors in turn on my tag with my stencil brushes - an Andy Skinner method.
There is black color on the edges.
The cloth had the same color but also a little green.
The dry timber got antique cream and when it was dry it was rubbed with a cloth, the same with all the decoration.
The old book page got diluted black and is stamped with archival ink.
Everything is glued and put into place.



 I have used DecoArt media fluid acrylics: Yellow oxide, Paynes grey, Translucent white, Quinacridone gold. DecoArt media antiquing cream Carbon black. DecoArt Crafter's acrylic Holiday green. Tando Creative Screws. Boozybear Gears.


Driftwood/big chat/Prima wax, keyhole, key/stencil brushes/#8 tag/old bookside/cloth/own custom made stamp.

I hope you want to join in the SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges and we are looking forward to seeing your project.


Thank you for your visit on my blog and I wish you a good creative day.
Hugs, Susan

The Catch

I love Tim Holtz cats stamps and Dylusion statement stamps so what's more obvious to make a small accordian book with them.


All back sides are stamped with silver wax and the edges have
have got the same color.


My backgrounds are mixed media, where stencils, stamps and
embossing powder are used.


I've been having fun doing this little accordian book in ATC size.


We have had a cat many years ago and we remember all his little farts.
He was a lovely cat!


I have used acrylic colors, stamps and dies, copic and a little mica.






Hope you came in a good mood with my little cat story.
I wish you a creative Sunday.
Hugs, Susan

New Year - New Adventures

Happy New Year to you all adventurers at *A*J*J*.
2017 has been a strange year for me, my creative muse has had a long break (some kind of limbo LOL) I hope it will be better in 2018.
It is certain that something has to be worked out, so I have chosen this great quote that suits my situation right now. 


In my A4 journal I have made a mixed media page with lots of acrylic colors and used different stencils and a great quote.


I wish you all a creative day.
Hugs, Susan

Vintage/steampunk watercolor box

I wish you all a Happy New Year.

Upcycling of a watercolor box found on a flea market...


I have been incredibly lucky to find this old watercolor box, with the finest porcelain cups for the colors and to mix the colors in.


I have used: DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Paynes Grey, Quinacridone Gold and Cobalt Turquoise Hue. DecoArt Crafters Acrylic Yellow and Brilliant Blue. 


The labels are in a box that I've had for many years ... I'm the kind that never throw out ;-)


I have also used gelli plate, watercolor paper, photos, ribbon, stamps and stickers.


Come and join us in the new year on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges








I hope you have had a good Christmas holiday and you have come well in 2018, with a great wish for a wonderful creative and peaceful year.
Hugs, Susan
