is our new theme over at Art Journal Journey this November.

I hope you will join us again . You are  allowed to submit as many entries as you want,  as long as they fit the theme. I chose this theme so that we have some fun
with collage.

NO FACES for this month
NO WINGS allowed this month -- so birdies are forbidden as well-
and NO LEAVES ...


And not to forget - I want to wish a happy T-Day especially to my lovely visitors from TSFT!
 I will drink much water
and I will "just play" with collage - using up as many bits and pieces and leftover papers as possible .
What a chance to get rid of many of all the scraps and papers.

Thank you very much for visiting me today and I  hope to see you at AJJ in November!


  1. Terrific pages Susi and a great theme to chose

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Wonderful collage, I am sure we will have fun with collage this month! Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  3. toll deine Collage und viel Spass beim Restenverwertung bei diesem Thema!
    Schönen 1 November!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  4. You answered my question I was going to ask about bird heads only. Looks like they are also a no-no. I suspect this is going to be difficult, so I'm going to have to put on my thinking cap. You have a lot of pages to play with, and I look forward to seeing what you and everyone else comes up with.

    You are going to need LOTS of water to get through all those scraps. Seems you will be playing with them for even more than a month.

    Thanks for joining T this Tuesday with your water, but also thanks for explaining the collages we can make for AJJ this month. I think it's going to be a wild ride!

  5. This is a great idea. I is going to force me to get off the Indian Summer brain and think about other things. I have a few ideas rolling around in my empty morning brain. I also love the idea of using up those scraps and doing a little clean out before the new year starts. :) Happy new month. Hugs-Erika

  6. A wonderful collage and a great theme.

  7. Liebe Susi,
    so ist es, du brauchts wahrlich nicht viele
    Utensilien um ein Kunstwerk zu zaubern. "Gefällt mir sehr"
    Ich wünsche dir einen sonnigen Tag.
    Lg Sadie

  8. Susi this is a great new AJJ theme. I will for sure be using up some of my bits and pieces on some collages.
    Your page spread looks fantastic.
    Happy T Day.

  9. Gorgeous page Susi but hard to stay away from the wonderful birdies though :)

  11. beautiful pages for a wonderful new theme this month at AJJ! Looking forward to it :) Happy T day too!

  12. Susi, this is a great theme! One I love to do- will have to join you!
    You are daring leaving your glass of water so close to your keyboard, mine would have already been soaking the keys! haahaa

  13. Sounds like a good challenge. Without the go-to things.
    Happy T-Day and have a good week,

  14. I'm not joining challenges at the moment but this sure tempts me. I think the restrictions will move people to think and create in new ways.

  15. Collage is always my favorite kind of play!
    I sometimes freeze up when there are lots of "rules" but I will see what comes.
    Your pages are so bright and cheery.
    Water is a drink I always enjoy very much
    Happy T Day and Happy November liebe Susi oxo

  16. A very challenging challenge ha ha but can't wait to have a play and see what happens :)
    I love your collage Susi and the soft colours.
    Enjoy your T-day and have a great day... Gill xx

  21. Wonderful collage, the colour palette is so beautiful and it's so much fun to play! Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J :-)

  22. I love your collage Susi and must say what a great theme! It will be thinking hat on, but this will help me move my mountain of scraps surely? Hugs, Chrisx

  23. Great idea for a theme. Collage with these restrictions will be fun. No birdies! I will have to find some scraps to play with.
    Your own pages here look brilliant, a great start to the month.

  24. i love what you've made and am intrigued by this challenge. i think the key word is to "just play" so thanks for this inspiration. xo

  25. Love your cheerful page Susi - the shadowing behind 'just play' is so realistic I thought you had die cut the words and popped them up!

  26. Wow! LOVE this amazing spread- The background is fresh and so lively! :)
    Suchi xx

  27. Ein sehr herausforderndes Thema! No faces, no birdies ... :)
    Oh ja, kleben und Spaß haben - ich bin dabei!
    Deine Seite ist eine wundervolle Anregung, danke!
    Sei lieb gegrüßt!

  28. Sehr gutes Thema liebe Susi, das fordert unsere grauen Zellen und Kreativität so richtig heraus, da wir auf einige zierende Elemente verzichten müssen. Dein Beispiel ist ,wie immer, erste Sahne. Gefällt mir farblich wie gestalterisch sehr gut. War schön dich Gestern mit Valerie zu sprechen.
    Alles Liebe

  29. First of all I am SOOOO jealous of getting to just play. Just seeing your work station, I want to do that. I am definitely having withdrawals, right when I probably could use a good couple of hours of playtime. Love your page too Susi. It is another beautiful collage. I hope to be joining you at AJJ very soon. The hubby might be home tomorrow. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  30. You can't go wrong with water :) Happy T Tuesday!

  31. One of my favorite sentiments...'just play!' Love your collage pages!
