  I can't believe it - 2000 posts here on froebelsternchen's blog since 2009.
Hope the next 2000 posts will bring me the same joy as the first 2000.
Thank you to all my lovely and loyal followers!

 Today starts a

 theme for the next two weeks and we hope to see you at the challenge with your ideas for-


Splatters are something I really love to use in my work since I often need a last something to make the pages completely and some splatters are often a good choice to get a last layer of interest. 

Here I did the splattering directly out of the unscrewed spraybottle with the thin plastic tube that sits under the spray nozzle - got fabulous splatters - yeah!

I really like the spread - the red colour is great to the greyish background - isn't it?!

I think it fits our Autumn theme at Art Journal Journey as well, where Valerie invites you to her Indian Summer theme the whole month!

 I searched long for a matching quote this time - I wanted something that speaks to me. 
And I found one - by unknown
I think that is a fact - I found out that the most excessively precise people aren't that creative! - o.k. Exeptions confirm the rule!
The insect and the hand with leaf are both outcuts from different magazines
and just collaged  - not handpainted!
  Thank you for calling in to see me today.
I really appreciate your visit.

  2. Guten Morgen liebe Susi,
    vorerst herzliche Gratulation zu 2000 Posts, ich freue mich
    auf die nächsten...
    Das Bild ist super und ich denke das mit den Klecksen&Co das
    könnte ich vielleicht auch probieren.
    Ich wünsche dir einen gemütlichen Tag.

  3. Congrats on 2000 posts. I've been blogging since 2005 and seriously since 2007. Ironically, I've only published 2965 posts. You are even more dedicated than I.

    I was going to compliment you on drawing that hand, then realized I had to compliment you on fussy cutting and gluing it to the page (GRIN)! Regardless, I think it's a fabulous spread and great for two different challenges. Great job.

  4. What an amazing page , great drawing great colours , I really love this!!

    Have fun!!

  5. Gorgeous pages Susi, love the colours and splatters. Being creative is much more important than being tidy. I think I have just over 300 posts till now, time flies. Hugs, Valerie

  6. Brilliant mixed media pages Susi! Great splatter work and congrats on all those posts!! I have been blogging since 2008 (I think...) and just checked, I have 1368, - so you have been one busy lady :o)

  7. Congratulations on 2000 posts, Susi! That's quite a milestone! Your journal spread looks great! I love drips and splatters too.

  8. Congrats on post 2000. That's a great milestone. :) And I am loving your page today. Not only did you get great splatters but that hand is amazing. And I am all about that quote. That's me for sure, and I think true for many people. :) Have a great day! Hugs-Erika

  18. What a fabulous page - so clever! Congrats on 2,000 posts ! Chrisx

  19. Super gelungen! Vom ganzen Arrangement über die einzelnen Elemente (ich liebe Insekten ;-) ) bis hin zu speziellen Details, z.B. den schwarzen Umrandungen. Great stuff!
    Glückwunsch zum 2000er und Grüße von der HerzKönigin (

  20. Die Hand mit dem Blatt sieht genial aus, super ist auch die Kleckselei .
    Gestaltung wieder erste Sahne.
    Liebe Grüße

  21. Totally beautiful spread! love the bug with the red!!
    Happy 2000 and best wishes for the next! xoxo

  22. Gratulation zum 2000. Post, herrlich! Die Doppelseite sieht sehr interessant aus - für mich schüttelt die Hand mit dem Blatt roten Staub (der aus dem Blatt kommt) auf das Insekt, und daher ist sehr viel Bewegung in dem Bild. Rot und grau ist eine tolle Kombination!

  23. Congratulations liebe Susi on 2,000 wonderful posts you've shared with us!
    Your splatters certainly are super on your page.
    Did that hand use the leaf to swat that big bug maybe *gg*!

  24. Congrats on all your inspiring posts dear Susi! And I love your splatter page -fab color combo!
