Art Journal Journey and Second on the 2nd

A spread for Valerie's theme over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY

Hope to see you (again) at the Challenge.

And for the

 I want to go back 13 years ago as I had fun in doing projects with my daughter Julia

we created many things together 
as for instance papermache .

We had even a gallery to show our papermache production:

and our work got published in a few books for children's  handicrafts what made us very proud!


  1. Lovely light page - a light bulb moment, indeed. And the dinosaur is such fun! Hugs, Valerie

  2. A true lightbulb moment for today's page!


  3. Ja, das Thema Licht in dieser dunklen Jahreszeit beschäftigt jetzt wohl Viele - ha, hast du also auch die gute, alte Glühbirne hier wieder aufleuchten lassen, und das gleich in mehreren Versionen! Ganz tolle Seiten sind dies geworden!
    Und wie toll sind die Papp-Mache-Figuren - ich liebe Papp-Mache, hab's ewig nicht mehr gemacht...
    Schönes Wochenende mit hoffentlich etwas Sonnenlicht wünsche ich dir!

  4. A fantastic page with a wonderful and meaningful quote Susi.

    Love the second showing piece and a look at the Gallery with all the other things as well. Thank you for sharing it all

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. What an amazing page, I love your lamps and your beautiful quote!!!

  6. Stunning art for AJJ. I laughed at Valerie's light bulb moment. It's true though, and I adore your beautiful art you drew.

    Your second look at the paper mache is impressive. So is the idea that you were published so many years ago.

    Thanks for sharing both your AJJ entry and your Second Look on the 2nd with us today.

  7. LOVE the light bulbs. I thought of using bulbs, but have yet any time to make my page. Got to get this hubby of mine back to work so I can squeeze in an hour or 2 of art at night! :) And the paper mache is SOOOO fun, especially even better if you did it with your daughter. LOVE the dinosaur. :) Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  8. Another favourite of mine Susi, I love light bulbs used in art and what a fab sentiment too. Ah well your daughter is obviously talented like her mum then ;)

  9. What a fabulous quote and brilliant journal spread - love this Susi. I could do with a few of your lovely light bulbs to add to my Christmas tree :)
    The papermache pieces were fab - especially Gloria the Angel. Well done for being published too - have you ever thought about writing a book about art journaling? I'd buy it!
    Have a great day and Schönes Wochenende :)( Rike told me some phrases).... Gill xx

  10. Genial! Eine Glühbirne brennt, die mittlere Glühbirne hat ein Herz intus, und die Schrift ist so spannend angelegt!
    Und der Drache ist goldig!! Muss mir gleich die Galerie ansehen ...
    Ein schönes Wochenende!
