gynandromorphism. Gynandromorphismus

 As I enjoyed a cup of ginger tea recently I read an article about rare half male- half female butterflies and since this caught my interest I googled and found THIS.
I decided to make a page to remember this fascinating butterfly .. and why not combining it with TSFT and AJJ - you know..our theme still is MASCULINE/FEMININE at

So I dried my ginger tea bag, glued it into my journal and started this spread with this
male/female butterfly and my mug using some watercolors and Neocolore II watersoluble crayons, gesso and Stabilo All pencil as well as a thin permanent black pen..

Hope you like it!
Also linked to Anything Goes at

Kürzlich , bei einer Tasse Ingwer Tee,  las ich etwas über halb männliche/ halb weibliche Schmetterlinge - und da mich das echt interessierte hab ich gegoogelt und DAS HIER gefunden.
Ich dachte mir - das ist es wert darüber eine Journalseite zu machen - warum nicht gleich mit 
TSFT (dafür hab ich die Tasse gemalt) und dem Maskulin/ Feminin Thema bei AJJ verbinden?
Ich hab meinen leeren Ingwer Tee Beutel getrocknet und ins Journal geklebt und startete meine Doppelseite mit Gesso , Wasserfarbe, Neocolore II Kreiden, Stabilo All Stift und Permanentmarker und ich hoffe sie gefällt Dir!

Gelinkt wird auch nochmal zu MOO MANIA & MORE..
da ist heute der letzte Tag "Anything Goes"

  2. Total schön, und eine ganz neue Perspektive für AJJ. Wunderbare, weiche Farben auch. Hugs, Valerie

  3. Great pages...love the butterfly ; )

  4. How interesting and beautiful, both the original and your striking pages. Gorgeous! Ruth x

  5. What a fascinating article, and a lovely set of pages.

  6. Your page is beautiful and truly honours the fascinating specimen. Whilst it is nice for others to see this rare butterfly in preservation, I think it should have been allowed to live it's natural life first. Thanks for sharing the article Susi and your ginger coffee. Happy T Day :D

  7. Love the way you made the great pages into a spread Susi and the butterfly tale is terrific--going to explore the link

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Well I certainly learned something new this T Tuesday. First, I was appalled that the butterfly became an exhibit before it had a chance to live out its existence. But, I was truly impressed with the differences in the male and female characteristics. You have done a wonderful job representing them, too. I admit the tea bag fared better than the original butterfly. Your butterfly is gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing this new-to-me word, condition, and butterfly, as well as your gorgeous rendition of it. Love the spread with the mug, too. So glad you found a way to combine your challenges again.

  9. I didn't know that. But from now one I do.
    Love your pages again. Everyday I think
    what will be Susi page today.
    Enjoy your work Anneke

  10. Hallo Susi,

    Freue mich immer bei dir vorbeizuschauen.

  18. Wow I've never heard of half and half butterflies! Fascinating. Great page!!
    Happy T day as well!

    Clever idea to use the ginger teabag and a painting of your mug too, and great how it all turned out.

  28. Beautiful Susi! And i learned a new word! Happy Belated Tday!! Hugs! deb

  29. Beautiful pages! Love this butterfly :)

  30. Great pages and an informational post this week. Poor Butterfly though that was unfortunate to be born someplace where they wouldn't let him live.

  31. Sorry I am so late in returning your T-day visit.

    What an interesting article about the butterfly. You captured it beautifully on your page, and what a great idea to use your tea bag for the background.

    Thanks for visiting me this week.

  32. WOW what a totally interesting thing! Who knew that could happen? Thanks so much for doing the research and sharing and then creating such beautiful spread as well!! hugs xoxo

  33. So glad I've had a little time to see what you're creating. These pages are so wonderful - colours, warmth and spirit. And that male/female teabag butterfly is stunning.
