HAPPY new week to all of you! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Art Journal Journey (Nature's Wonders) meets  Mix It Monthly
( being inspired by Van Gogh´s Art) on this page in my round journal.

 I used  Van Gogh's Quote:
"What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?" 

I think sunflowers are wonders of nature since they need nearly nothing to bloom -
just sun - even in my wilderness of garden and having no green thumb they bloom so nicely
just now -

Thank you for visiting!


  1. The garden looks lovely. Sonnenblumen sing wunderschön, so wie Deine tolle Journalseite. Dir eine gute Woche! Hugs, Valerie

  2. I love sunflowers, they always seem to capture the spirit of summer:-)


  3. This really is beautiful Susi! Your garden looks great too! Hugs, Chrisx

  4. dein rundes Journal wird jeden tag schöner... der vogel war schon klasse, und jetzt die wunderbare Sonnenblume... wer behauptet, dass du keinen grünen Daumen hast;) vermutlich Susi-Understatement;)
    immer eine Freude, bei dir vorbeizuschauen! schöne sommerwoche wünsch ich dir!

  5. Beautiful Susi, love the gorgeous colours. Your garden looks divine. :)

  6. So beautiful Susi!! I am envious of your beautiful lush garden!! xo

  7. I enjoyed the lovely sunflowers, but also enjoyed seeing your beautiful garden with all kinds of lovely flowers. I am really enjoying this new round art journal. The pieces you paint and create in it seem to fit perfectly.

  8. Beautiful sunflower colored so well! Your garden looks awesome!! :)

  9. Als ob dein Buch für diese Sonnenblumenblüte gemacht worden ist... und wie schön sie in deinem Garten blühen! Bei mir blühte nur eine auf dem Balkon - eine Vogelfutter-Blume. Lieben Gruß von Ulrike

  10. I think your garden looks like a garden should-like it just sprung up and not overly fussed over. I love the stones in the background (your foundation?) so it looks like it is in a wonderful field someplace. And I love the sunflower and the quote. I think Van Gogh makes a great inspiration. :) Happy Monday. Hugs-Erika

  12. Another beautiful round page Susi with the gorgeous Sunflower and wonderful Van Gogh quote. (was watching a tv programme yesterday about the newly discovered evidence about the 'ear' incident - really fascinating.)
    Love your garden.. I have no sunflowers this year. Often the birds plant them by dropping their seeds but their choice of where they plant them isn't always ideal.

    Love Chrissie xx

  14. Your garden looks beautiful and so natural with the lovely flowers.
    Love the wonderful page with the sunflower and lovely quote.

  17. What a beautiful sunflower, the white outline is a great idea and gives it a lovely definition! Your garden looks so wonderful and your flowers have a beautiful backdrop against those lovely stone walls. I think I will add sunflowers to my garden next year! Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a happy week! J :-)

  18. Lovely round journal. I expect it would be the perfect thing for mandalas! Cheery sunflower face. xox

  19. Stunning sunflowers both your art and in your garden xxx

  20. Traumhaft schön, liebe Susi. Die Blüte ist ein Gedicht und Dein Sonnenblumenbeet gefällt mir auch sehr.

    Blumige Grüße

  21. Ooh! That's beautiful Susi! xx

  22. What a fabulous painting Susi - love sunflowers and this is a beautiful representation of them - the quote is so appropriate against the sunflower. Your garden looks wonderful too :-)

  23. Vincent's Sonnenblume - toll! Das ist ein sehr schönes Foto von den Sonnenblumen, den anderen Blumen und der Steinmauer im Hintergrund!
    LG, Rike

  24. Sunflowers are one of my favorite too. I love the Van Gogh's spirited style too. Your tribute is gorgeous, my friend!

  25. Gorgeous sunflower painting liebe Susi ♥
    Sunflowers seem so brave and fearless as they shoot up toward the sun standing tall and beautiful.
    Your garden is so pretty with the beautiful stone wall in the background.

  26. Diese Farben sind so satt und kräftig, einfach ein Hingucker!

  27. Ohh erstmal ein grosses Daumen hoch für Deine tolle Sonnenblume, der Spruch von Vincent ist einfach klasse! Ja und was eine Blumenpracht in Deinem Garten! Sonnenblumen machen alles doppelt so schön!!! ♥ Conny
