Sometimes I close my eyes...

For Art Journal Journey's theme :
 If You Go Down To The Woods
I have to share a hybrid piece today.

  I didn't know what to do with this spread 


- looked a bit boring to me...
I hope a good idea occurs to me  - meanwhile I altered the pages digital - as shown above.

Art Journal Journey


  1. Lovely spread and perfect with the quote. I wish someone would sprinkle some fairy dust on me today, love the idea! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Beautiful journalling! I loved the tress texture, the colors and the quote is inspiring! :)

  3. Nothing at all boring, you are so original I didn't see any tree's with text or leaves on there branches an tree trunk passing by, a very beautiful spread with suc beautiful quote!!


  4. Hallo Susi,
    Bäume, tja ich liebe sie eben,
    das 2te Bild in seiner Intensität gefällt mir noch besser.
    (Hast du Zeitungspapier für die Baumrinde/Stamm untergelegt?) zumindest ist das ein toller Effekt.
    Lg Sadie,
    bei der unglaublicherweise gerade die Sonne etwas hervorlugt.

  5. wow...fantastische Farben. Zauberhaft wie gewohnt.
    Liebe Grüüße

  6. I started to leave you a comment, was part way through, and the cursor quit moving. I rebooted, still had a problem, then realized the batteries in my keyboard were dead. DUH! All that work for nothing.

    I was originally saying that when you can't decide what to do, go digital. You do it SO well. I really like the original trees with their various "textures." Adding the quote/saying was brilliant and inspiring. I love it.

  7. Deine Bäume aus Buchstaben sind herrlich, liebe Susi! Wunderschöne Farben und tolle Effekte. Danke für die Inspiration.
    Ein schönes Wochenende wünsche ich Dir und schicke Knuddel ins Viertel :)
    Deine Erika

  8. What a wonderful altered spread this is - the digital enhancements are perfect to add interest and sparkle and a sense of slight mystery

  9. What a fabulous page this was to begin with but I do love the changes! Thank you for linking me! Have a great day! Hugs, Chrisx

  10. Fabulous work as always Susi, adore the bark, so clever! Ruth xx

  11. A wonderful page Susi that brought a tear to my eyes with the great sentiment

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  12. Oh no, I don't think the original page is boring at all, in fact I think I prefer it with the pretty trees, the wonderful glowing background and the way you have used the colours.

  13. I like it and don't find it boring at all. Happy weekend! And happy PPF too! :) Hope you get into your garden this weekend!

  14. Wow, this is gorgeous Susi! I love the background, and the amazing patterns on your tree trunks are just amazing! Love it! hugs :)

  15. Oh I think this is such a beautiful journal spread Susi! How about writing that lovely quote on your page and then consider it done?

  16. Awww ein bischen Feenstaub, genau das richtige für meinen Tag heute! Ich setz mich auch ein bischen unter Deine Bäume und atme die Ruhe ein..................tut gut :) tolle Seite und wunderschönes Thema! ♥ Conny

  17. Nope nothing boring here Susi but yes maybe the permanent addition of a sentiment would just finish it nicely ;)

  19. Eine wundervolle Seite ich mag so was und wie du toll die Baumstämme einen Inhalt gegeben hast!
    Schönen Freitag wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  20. I can't wait to see what story you come up with. You always give us something fun to read. I like this one...especially the writing in the background. Would love to know how you get the circles. Were they on a texture. You know me...I am always asking questions. If you are too busy to answer do not worry. I will not be offended, my friend. genie

    1. Thank you for all your comments dear Genie!
      The pink circles are made through a stencil !

  21. Liebe Susi, die beiden Grafiken mit den Bäumen schauen fantastisch gut aus, diese wunderschönen Farben.....und eine super tolle Idee mit dem Beschriften der Bäume, das passt so gut zu den Bäumen, man sagt ja oftmals..."der Baum könnte uns viel erzählen". Schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße von Lollo

  22. Wowww, was für eine schöne Seite. Gefällt mir sehr, sehr gut.
    LG und ein schönes Wochenende

  23. What a happy piece reflecting your attitude. xox

  24. Fabulous arty piece and I totally LOVE that fairy dust quote! It really suits that page!

  25. not at all boring...I think it's the text peeking through the colors/trees!

  26. Beide Versionen gefallen mir supergut liebe Susi, Jede hat was Spezielles.
    Schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße.

  27. Your pages are lovely liebe Susi.
    For me adding words is always a fun thing to do.

  28. Love your fantastic pages and the lovely quote!
    Mar xx
