A flip through the last Altered Book and face No .46/99

A blogfriend asked what I am going to do with the Altered Book of which I showed the front- and backcover this week. This Altered Book is already finished - here a flip through

I love Chrissie's WINTER WONDERLAND theme for AJJ this month and
made a lot of wintery pages,  but now I should concentrate on faces again .
For our 99 Faces Challenge !
I sketched a very quick one today - I like to sketch them with the
Stabilo Mark It All Pencil as I showed you here.

I thought it would be nice to see her on one of my winter backgrounds -
maybe this canvas .

I tried to bring the face to this canvas digital -  but don't like it .
I like it much more without face...yes-
her face doesn't look nice on the textured canvas !

Art Journal Journey


  1. Das Buch ist sehr schön, gefällt mir mega gut, und eine tolle Erinnerung an Winter wonderland 2016. Das Gesicht gefällt mir gut auf dem Hintergrund, fein gemacht Sweetie. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Thanks for showing us your amazing art work Susi, your book looks fantastic, I really love all your nice art impressions, you are very talented!!! I olso love the canvas , great ART!!

    Have a nice weekend!!

  3. Hallo Susi,
    Das Buch ist einmalig, jede Seite für sich ein Genuss und das Portrait mit dem etwas kantigen Gesicht hat was.
    Ich bin gerade am Ausprobieren ;-) danke für die Einblicke.
    Lg und ein schönes We.

  4. Loved the trip through your book - thank you Susi. Your face today is gorgeous, and I differ - I think she looks good on the canvas :-)

  5. Smart move to make the cover last. I've always said that the last thing you decorate is the cover, because it can get messed up, especially if a person is as messy as I seem to be.

    This was a fun book to flip through and I enjoyed it. I also like the face. I am in awe of all the different features and expression you get from these faces.

  6. LOVELY work and post! Have a good weekend, Susi!

  7. Susi I loved your video. It was fun to see the old and new pages all together and what your altered book was like. :) And The lady looks wonderful on the canvas. Glad you are getting brave to try that! Happy weekend!

  8. Wie toll, mit dir in deinem ArtJournal zu blättern, voll mit so fantastischen Bildern! Wie viele von solchen Büchern magst du inzwischen haben, so fleißig, wie du jeden Tag bist?!
    Lieben Gruß von Ulrike

  9. Great start to the painting and I love the lip through. :)

  10. The altered book is wonderful Susi with such a variety of artwork

    Love the face on its own or in the winter setting

    Hope your day is going well

    Chrissie xx

  11. What a treat to see through your book, it's as if we are sitting next to you in real life. Great book too and I love the covers.
    I'm going to page through it again now!

  12. Your book is filled with such amazing pages Susi!! Thanks for sharing it all!

  13. Brilliant face on that stunning background and your flip through was wonderful to see too! I remember most of the pages, but not all of them, - brilliant work all round!

  14. Well that was a wonderful treat to get to see your gorgeous journal pages in your beautiful finished book!
    You are a wonder liebe Susi!
    I like the face on the canvas and I like the canvas without the face...what's not to like ;-)
    Happy Weekend to you dear one.

  15. Loved seeing all the pages in your journal. I think both the versions on the canvas look awesome.

  18. I loved looking through your book - there are such beautiful pages inside! Your Winter face is gorgeous! Hugs, Chrisx

  19. Schöne Buchseiten,kommen auf deinem Video nochmal richtig schön rüber.
    Auch dieser Keilrahmen mit Winter-HG und Gesichtsskizze sieht sehr stimmig aus.
    Schönen Sonntag

  20. Danke für das Video, ein wunderschönes Buch. Ich schließe mich Ulrikes Frage gleich mal an ;)
    Kann mir gut vorstellen, dass deine Werke mittlerweile schon ein Regal füllen.

  21. So great to be able to experiment with the face on the canvas without losing your wonderful canvas background if you change your mind. I'm looking forward to seeing the video when I've caught up on a bit more visiting.

  22. Liebe Susi,

    Dein Buch schaut wundervoll aus, ganz besonders mag ich Deine Vogelwerke. Und Dein Canvas ist ein Träumchen, ssssooo schön.

    Einen wundervollen Tag
    wünscht Dir

  23. Thank you for sharing your journal pages, I love each and every spread! I do have a question,Susi. Did you have your pages prepared ahead of time with color or backgrounds, or do you just dive into the white space each time? Thanks again- I love it! xoxo
