Home is the nicest word there is ...

watercolorpencils - waterbrush - permanent marker


Art Journal Journey

and a face for 
 (No 35 & No 36)

49 faces

 I think it's a bit ugly.. but  I don't mind - you know not every face turns out like it is wished to turn out - but you learn and grow with every new face!

I had a little play with it in PhotoFiltre StudioX and came up with an
 "It's frightening/ Halloween " 
Variation  . A little reminder to join our current TIOT'S theme!

You have still more than a week to join us at TIOT!
Try It On Tuesday
 this one also fits ORANGE & BLACK at


I will  also link to


  1. I liked the texture of the "home" spread. The watercolors surprised me, because I thought you had used pastels. Nicely done.

    The lady looked angry before you used the filter. After that, she looked different, possibly afraid, but not scary. Maybe it was Poe (and his beating heart) she was afraid of. Great job, regardless.

  2. die farben vom "home" sind wunderbar.
    das untere bild guckt mich faszinierend an. die augen sind perfekt lebendig.
    guten wochenstart, liebe susanne!
    herzlich petra

  3. Love your journal page, home is always the best place to be, that's true. Your face is scary, but fun. Have good start in the week, hugs, Valerie

  4. Hallo Susi,
    deine Bilder sind wie immer super.
    Das 2te würde auch perfekt für die Take a word Challenge sein, die
    das Thema orange/schwarz hat, weil es etwas Besonderes ist.
    Lg und einen guten Wochenstart.

  5. Love your home page Susi - the colours are gorgeous! The faces are fascinating :-)

  6. Really beautiful page Susi with a great saying from you.

    Love the face and it looks even better as a Halloween face.

  7. Liebe Susi, da stimme ich wieder sehr mit Dir überein! Ein wunderschönes Wort und ein herrliches Gefühl, wenn wir eines haben. Das Aquarell ist zauberhaft. So leicht und schön erinnert es mich ein wenig an die von Hermann Hesse. Speziell die, die er in Italien malte.

    Ich wünsche Dir eine extrafeine Woche un viele Farben und Ideen. Wobei das gar nicht nötig zu sein scheint. So viele schöne Ideen, die ich immer bei Dir sehe :)

    Herzliche Grüße zu Dir
    Deine Erika

  10. Fabulous page Susi !! love these colours, and yes, there ´s no place in the world better than home!. Nice day, big hugs.

  20. Yes, the word home definitely is the nicest word and your home looks lovely, warm and welcoming.
    I don't think your portrait is ugly at all, but you've done superb photo-editing, a great transformation with the different colours and scribbly writing.

  21. I love the colours on your home page and the quote you have used! As for your face -she reminds me of someone I used to teach - I love the Halloween look you have given her! Chrisx

  22. Love the sentiment on the journal page! The faces are great too. I really like the idea that faces turn out as they wish to . I particularly like the look you have given her for Halloween. xxx
