Book Pages

A new theme at 
+++++Book Pages +++++
is awaiting you and the whole DT is looking forward to seeing your ideas for the challenge!

A nice theme for me as I always like to play in my Altered Books and have much of the torn out pages left . To hold my Altered Books flat I often tear out pages in-between. 

 So I have collected enough from this book pages to  use them in my art .

That's the freedom Mixed Media gives you - you are allowed to use everything!!

I have a Mixed Media spread to share in one of my Altered Books -
I will link this spread to Art Journal Journey
"Nature's Wonders"
as well.

With my friends at 
I want to share a kind of "Mixed Media" breakfast. I often use what I have on hand in my kitchen for a breakfast for me ... my family likes to eat a sweet breakfast - but I can eat nearly everthing for breakfast. As hubby brought fresh chanterelles and porcini from the forest I decided to make an omelette for me filled with fried mushrooms and onions ...yummie - 
fresh black decaf to it --- this is how a day starts fabulous in my mind!!!

Happy T-Day - happy TioT and happy AJJ!


  1. Wonderful journal pages for TIOT and AJJ, so colourful. Your breakfast looks good, but I would like my coffee a bit stronger, please, with milk foam and not decaffeinated! Hugs, Valerie

  2. A beautiful mixed media page Susi and the birds looks so sweet.
    Your omelette looks delicious, it is good to have the mushrooms near by, to pick from the forest.
    Happy T day
