The first theme we have for you this year at  TRY IT ON TUESDAY  is


We would like you to use some tissue on your projects . It could be a napkin, something you have made from mop up tissues, stamping on tissue etc etc.

And it's the first  T - Stands - For - Tuesday  in 2017  over at Elizabeth's blog as well.

I took one of my favourite napkins - shown here with a glass of fresh water, which 
is  always a good choice for a drink.....

 and used a part of it along with different other things as there are old lace, 

 a piece of old fabric,
 pieces of  craft paperbag 

along with many other things like
gesso and a nice little poem in german language from Victor Auburtin that I 
found in a magazine .
In autumn, the gardens are filled with silence, For which we have no time.  
says it in English .

Happy first T-Day in 2017!
I will also link to lovely Erika's   Art Journal Journey theme .

Hope to see you at TSFT, TIOT and AJJ!

  1. Wonderful spread with lovely colours. Enjoy your water! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. I'm always in awe when you manage to create art that covers more than one challenge. Your lovely tissue is not just beautiful, it's so well done with all the other bits and pieces you have included with it. When I see tissue, I often have trouble seeing a specific part of it. Instead, I often forget to take it apart (art wise) and end up using the entire napkin, which I should never do. Your art proves that. This is lovely. Thanks for sharing this AJJ and TioT entry, along with your water with us for T this Tuesday.

  3. That's a gorgeous page Susi. I love the stillness and the autumn/early winter story it tells. Makes me want to be out walking in some of that filtered sunlight you get at that time of year. Hugs-Erika

  4. A wonderful page Susi, I love how you have used the package for part of your page too!
    It's true, water is such a good drink! Happy T Day! Hugs, Chrisx

  5. Liebe Susi,
    wie immer ein tolle Seite, die
    herbstlichen Farben finde ich besonders
    Eine echt coole Serviette, da schmeckt sogar
    ein Glas Wasser ;-) oder ist das für die Wasserfarben
    gedacht? ;-))
    Lg und noch einen gemütlichen Tag.

  6. Ein sehr schönes Zitat! Du hast es wundervoll umgesetzt, mir gefällt die Spitze und auch das 100% recycled ... Und Wasser ist ein lebenswichtiger Drink!

  7. What a lovely page Susi. I love the bit of lace and the sentiment (so true)on a fold-out piece of card.
    Happy New Year and happy T-Day,

  8. Awesome spread Susi. Love every single part of it!
    I wish I could make such beauties!
    Best wishes for the New Year and big hugs! Lula

  9. Very clever and beautiful journal page incorporating the tissue Susi.
    Enjoy your T-day (and glass of water :) )

    I ♥ napkins and tissue and the way they melt into the page.
    Water is always my favorite drink.

  15. A lovely peaceful and serene page to match the beautiful poem you have chosen! I love that you recycled the recycled packaging as well as the tissue paper, old fabric, lace and leaves, which add such a lovely dimension and texture to this piece :-). Wishing you a very Happy T Day dear Susi! J :-)
