My " FAVOURITE COLORS" - Moo Mania & More

At Moo Mania & More  we have a new challenge online which is:


mine are definitely the blues and the greens in all their shadings, though I love all colors and use as much color combinations as possible. It took me years to avoid mud - that was my greatest problem by all my stamping and painting attempts. It was good for me to learn a bit about the colors and how they work together .. how good that there are so many books about color theory and tutorials available. A fab help for me was Dina Wakley's first book .

this month -
so this is my spread for both challenges.

I was inspired by MONET and made the background with help of this simple video

Bei MOO MANIA gibt es für Euch eine neue Herausforderung - wir wollen diesmal Eure Lieblingsfarben sehen. Ich zeige meine in dieser Doppelseite, die ich auch für AJJ gemacht habe,  zum dortigen Thema - Inspiriert von den Meistern.


  1. I can't believe I missed the last Moo Mania challenge. I will definitely try to join in on this next one.

    I'm a big fan of Monet. I think he was the first Impressionist I really studied. I guess it's because he was so famous, having outlived all his peers and fellow artists. I have seen at least NINE of Monet's waterlilies, several of them as traveling exhibits.

  2. Ganz toll, Monet wäre neidig!Du hast ein Monet Gefühl eingefangen. Schönes Thema für Moo, auch. Bleus and greens sind immer meine lieblingsfarben, auch.GLG, Valerie

  3. Eine wunderschöne Doppelseite hast du wieder geschaffen! LG Dagmar

  7. Oops, I meant to say Monet of course, (too early in the morning....)

  8. Amazing Monet inspired artwork Susi

    Love Chrissie x

  9. Beautiful love blue and green together! Great quote too...

    Hugs Giggles

  10. Great Monet-inspired journal page, Susi. I really like how you've painted the waterlilies - they really zing off the page (probably what made Astrid type 'Matisse').

  11. Gorgeous pages, the colours are so lovely and bright.
    xxx Hazel.

  12. I can see the touch of Monet in your beautiful spread. I love how you've made the texts. Great piece of art, Susi xx

  13. OH my dear Susi!
    Now you've done it...all of my favorite things here on your pages.

    Brilliant and so inspiring ♥♥♥

  14. Zwei sehr schöne Seiten sind das geworden, liebe Susi

  15. Oh wow,this is brilliant Susi,such wonderful colours. I've put that book on my ever growing Christmas list,there's a new one coming out soon as well :)

    Big hugs
    Donna xxx

    How about Van Gogh Starry Night next :)

  16. Auch der Meister des Lichts Monet wird nun wieder lebendig!
    Ganz toll!
    Lieben Gruß von Ulrike

  17. Stunning pages inspired by Monet, lovely colours and wonderful words Susi.

    I have the first Dina Wakley book and have put her new one on my wishlist :-) xxx

    LG Sabine

  19. What a great interpretation of this classic painting Susi. Jenny x

  20. Beautifully executed Susi- absolutely you captured Monet's inspiration here! xoxo

  21. Liebe Susi, ich liebe Monet, traue mich aber nicht an impressionistische Malerei heran. Deine Seerosen sind so traumschön geworden. Wie ist es, wenn Du das Bild von weiter weg betrachtest? Am PC geht es leider nicht ...

    Eine herrliche Idee ein Bild nach Monet zu gestalten. Ganz ganz fein, Susi.

    Sei herzlich gegrüßt, mit viel Sonne und milden Herbsttemperaturen.
    Deine Erika

  22. you have been busy! I love how you put both challenges into one

  23. Wunderhübsche Seiten, persönlich umgesetzt. Super!
