Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.

A collage that started just as a drawing of a pear - but wanted to become a colorful collage as it seems.

It's A4 on printer paper. Oilpastels and different pencils - Stabilo Mark It All in black, scraps of papers, random stamping with distress ink with motifs of Stampers Anonymous stamps.
 Two little pieces of stamped Tissue paper.

 I hope you like it as much as I do and you are inspired to join in the fun this month (again)

Art Journal Journey

where the talented VALERIE hosts her great  theme
 the whole month long!


  1. I sincerely love this sooo much! I could see it as kitchen prints, or on tea gorgeous. Great saying too...helps with purging as well!! One of my favourites!!Even a cool coffee mug...

    Hugs Giggles

  2. This is a very unique piece, Susi. I like how you started with the pear, then listened to it, and allowed it to expand into this gorgeous autumn entry. I know people don't believe me when I tell them the art told me what to make or told me how to finish something. At least you know it's true! Love this.

  3. A gorgeous artsy piece, love it xxx

  4. Guten Morgen, liebe Susi,
    ja, es ist eine Frage der Perspektive :) Ich bin wieder sehr berührt, von der Perspektive, die Du einnimmst. Den feinen Worten, die Du gewählt hast und der gesamten Collage.

    Einen bunten Sonntag wünsche ich Dir und alles Liebe
    Deine Erika

  5. Beautiful piece with gorgeous colours and a lovely design You were really inspired to create and dream. Have a fun Sunday, hugs, Valerie

  19. That pear is wonderful Susi. I also like the mosaic style background you created. Kind of feels like the pear is sitting on a table cloth. Which makes your page very rich. :) Hope its was a perfect fall weekend for you. Hugs-Erika
