Layer It Up .....

LAYER IT UP .... is  our new theme at TRY IT ON TUESDAY

Try It On Tuesday

and I came up with a collaged spread in  my very  voluminous Altered Book. It's thick enough so that  I was able to cut a niche for my found poppy capsule. I had fun by gluing layers of scraps and cheesecloth. It needed long to dry. Some collaged images of poppy capsules were  added as well.

For TSFT  I want to offer fresh baked  poppy seed roll

 and a cup of
in my case a cup of
black decaf.

Happy T-DAY, TIOT, and AJJ
(where we have the 
No Faces, No Wings, No leaves - BUT COLLAGE
Thank you for your visit - I always appreciate your comments!

  5. Great spread, Susi! I love the niche with the real poppy capsule.

  6. Its a fabulous layered page and a wonderful idea to have the niche for the poppy head.

  7. Susi this stunning! Loved it when I first saw it! Poppy seed roll too please and just a splash of milk in the coffee! Hugs, Chrisx

  8. gorgeous collage art Susi! Love the poppy capsules, as well as the poppy seed roll-yum! That would be so good with the coffee I'm having right now:) Happy T day!

  9. Great page. You got flowers - or at least flower pods - without leaves. And then poppy seed roll? That completes the theme. Clever you!

  10. Your monochrome poppy piece is amazing - I love how you have created the background with the cheese cloth, fabulous textures! I have never tried poppy seed roll before, it looks so delicious and your coffee cup and saucer are adorable! Wishing you a Happy T Day dear Susi! Jo x

  11. Before I read your post I thought your page was filled with hot air balloons - ooops sorry Susi - I see they are poppies :)
    What a clever idea to cut that niche - wonderful textures - I love this!
    The rolls and coffee look very nice and making feel very hungry now as I haven't yet had lunch. Have you any left or eaten them all? :)

  12. I have never seen a real poppy head before, but the niche and one you created is splendid. What a great way to honor all these challenges (MM&M, TioT, and AJJ) while enjoying a cup of decaf and a bit of poppy seed bread. It's been a long time since I've made poppy seed bread, it brought back wonderful memories.

    Thanks for sharing your incredible art and your coffee and bread with us for T this Tuesday. Please make mine with caffeine, though.

  13. Love your artjournal page Susi!! I love Lemon Poppy Seed bread... Yummy! Thank you so much for sharing this Tday. Hugs! deb

  14. Perfekt - zu den Mohnkapseln gibt es passend dazu den Mohnstrudel! Mmmhh, mein Lieblingskuchen! Hast du die Seiten aus denen du die Nische geschnitten hast, dann zusammengeklebt, oder wie hält die Nische? Die Stiele sind super dazugezeichnet und das Tollste ist die eingekapselte Kapsel im Buch :)

  15. toll ausgesprochen zusagend dein Bild mit der Mohnkaspel und schippseln aber auch dein Mohnstrudel, viel Spass bei dem Tday!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  16. Stunning and ingenious spread! A great design.
    Your cake looks delicious, Susi!

  18. I've never had a poppy seed roll that looked like that, but it looks good :) I take my coffee black, too, and I like the design of your cup and saucer. Happy T Tuesday!

  19. Wow! That is a brilliant page. I love the idea of a niche for the poppy head.
    And that cake looks scrummy. Thanks for sharing that. I love poppy seeds but I can only buy it in very small quantities.
    Happy T-Day,

  20. What an amazing spread Susi - love it!! That poppy seed roll looks delicious!!

  21. I like how you added the actual poppy pod! The whole spread looks really cool and I love all the textures and layers. That must be some thick book! And the poppy seed bread looks yummy. I've never had it, but I'll take a piece. Its fun to try new things. :) Happy T day, even if I am a little behind. Hugs-Erika

  24. Mohnkapseln mag ich sehr, sie sind so dekorativ und deine Collage oder eher Assemblage damit sieht genial aus. Die HG-Texturen sehen auch total klasse aus. SUper gemacht!
