POULTRY / Federvieh

We have a new theme over at

Moo Mania  &  more

which is POULTRY

I came up with a spread in one of my journals . I used watercolor printed on with selfmade styrofoamstamps in the background and used an outcut of a magazine.
The sentiment is written with an Artist Pitt Pen black marker. All lines and a bit of definition were made with watersoluble crayons.

 I made some stamps out of styrofoamplates ( meat- and veggiepackages)
cool with watercolors as well as with acrylics to use.


(sorry no workdesk included this time - I just work on my kitchen table and have always everything to clear up when my family wants to eat)

Art Journal Journey

Für das neue Thema bei MMM hab ich diese Doppelseite kreiert mit
einem Hintergrund aus Wasserfarbe aufgedruckt mit selbstgemachten Stempeln aus Styroporverpackungen (siehe oben),
einem Magazinbildchen und wasservermalbaren Kreiden für Linien, Umrandung und etwas Definierung der Styroporstempelabdrücke.Mit einem Artist Pitt Pen in Schwarz wurde der Spruch geschrieben:

Das Leben ist das , was du daraus machst . So war es immer. So wird es immer sein.
 bedeutet der Spruch von Grandma Moses 


  1. A wonderful journal page and love the stamps you made yourself! Great quote too, so true! Hugs, Valerie

  2. die selbstgemachten stempel ergeben wirklich einen tollen Hintergrund. wahrer spruch!
    ich mag Federvieh, ich komme hoffentlich auch dazu... im Moment treibt es mich nach draußen und morgen ist wieder stempeltreff in münchen...

  3. Ohh was für tolle seiten und der spruch so wahr,ganz toll.die stempel sind ja klasse und ergeben einen wunderschönen hintergrund.

  4. FIRST, I want to apologize for my erroneous entry at AJJ, It's late and I am sorry. I couldn't delete my entry like I can at Moo Mania.

    Second, I see you are now caught in the WoYWW web. I'm not playing this week, but still wanted to stop by and tell you how glad I am to see you are. That "foul" is pretty clever. Love the use of handmade stencils. I need to make a few more of them, too.

  5. wie süss das Huhn und der tolle Spruch, aber auch deine selbst gemachten Stempel macht den Reiz aus von diesem Bild .. wieder so schön!
    Jetzt mache ich erst mal einen Spaziergang zum Wochenmarkt und geniesse die Sonne bei mir...dir einen schönen Tag!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  6. Hallo Susi,
    genauso wie dieser Spruch ist das Leben und es ist egal
    ob zuerst die Henne da war, oder das Ei ;-))
    tolle Seite
