It seems I got into gear with LINDA'S 50 Shades of RED,
nearly can't stop playing and messing around with red scraps and red colours,
even though red doesn't belong to my top-favourite colours.

I took different papers and pieces of the outer packaging of teabags and  
ended up with a fairly RED collage in my LETTER JOURNAL .
It's meant for AJJ - 50 SHADES OF RED and also
 a reminder for our TIOT theme - LETS GET MESSY

A happy Tuesday to the 

T S F T  girls 
and to our lovely host Elizabeth!

Help yourself with some orange juice and this sweet breakfast with which
my daughter recently surprised me ♥♥♥!
It was just yummie!


  1. Guten Morgen Susi,
    man hat so gat nicht das Gefühl, dass Rot nicht
    deine Lieblingsfarbe ist, deine Seiten sind super.
    Kreativ und energiegeladen.
    Das Frühstück würde ich auch gerne nehmen ;-))
    Lg und einen hoffentlich sonnigen Tag.

  2. schöne seiten und tolle farben,die seiten sind auch sehr inspirierend.
    eine schöne woche für dich.

    schöne grüße jenny

  3. OMGosh. I am in LOVE with that waffle. Your daughter treated you like the Queen mum you are. How thoughtful of her.

    Loved the journal page. Red has never been one of my favorite colors, either, but I now appreciate it thanks to AJJ. Your entries have convinced me that red is a color I can appreciate because you draw and paint so well.

    Thanks for sharing your art AND your wonderful breakfast that includes orange juice for T this Tuesday. It's a drink I seem to forget about, so thanks for putting it on my radar.

  4. Lovely journal page and I would enjoy the breakfast in the afternoon.... Happy T Day, Valerie

  5. Red is not my first 'go to' colour either. But one of my earlier mixed media collages was predominantly red and is up on my wall at home and it catches my eye every time I go past it. Your page is wonderful Susi.

  6. Absolutely delightful pages Susi xxx

  7. Gorgeous range of reds again Susi on your gorgeous layout - and a wonderful looking breakfast :-)

  8. sieht wieder toll aus!! (das ERWARTE ich hier auch *GGG*)
    war bestimmt frickelig, im buch zu nähen... oder wird das erst noch gebunden?
    Menno, das rote Thema läuft seinem ende zu und es gefällt mir richtig gut, aber ich krieg meinen a**** nicht hoch...
    leih mir doch mal deine tochter zum frühstück machen;)
    hab eine schöne Woche, liebe Susi!! ♥♥♥

  9. The artwork on the spread is stunning Susi. I think red is good for you and you pages have been terrific for this challenge. Well they always are whatever colour.

    Fabulous breakfast I would have joined you in that any day of the week

    Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Deine Tochter ist eine Perle - klar, dass du mit so einem Frühstück voll gestärkt so schöne Bilder malen kannst!
    Mir gefällt sehr bei den beiden Zweigen die Gegenüberstellung von Postiv-Negativ!
    Sei lieb gegrüßt! Rike oxo

  11. Gorgeous red journal pages Susi.
    Your breakfast looks delicious, a super surprise from your daughter.

  12. Now I love waffles-and those heart shaped ones looks so tempting. What a sweet thought from your daughter. I bet that made you smile! It would me. And loving all your red art! Its just gorgeous. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  13. Good mornng and thank you for breakfast. I am new to the party-loving your art-thanks for sharing with us

  14. first of all I haven't had my breakfast yet and yours looks like such a lovely treat! I would never have guessed red wasn't a fave color of yours. I mean really, your pages have been so outstanding, just gorgeous!! Thanks so much for so many wonderful contributions, and happy T day too!

  15. Oh my, what a wonderful and thoughtful suprise from your daughter - the waffle looks so yummy! Red is not a colour I would chose either and I have found myself enjoying the change and the challenge immensely :-). Lovely artwork, I love the red drips, white accents and the fade into white and blue on the left hand side - beautiful! Happy T Day! J :-)

  16. What an absolutely gorgeous page Susi! And what a delicious breakfast, love waffles :D Have a great day! xo Cheetarah

  17. What a wonderful spread Susi - it is very touchable if that makes sense. I better calm down and make another journal entry. Life is so full but that is a good thing!

  18. Red , red, red... i see red everywhere these days... So amazing the different things you can do with a red theme... I've really enjoyed seeing yours Susi! Happy happy T day! Hugs! deb

  19. Love your red page, Susi! It's not one of my colors either. Maybe I should try to break out of that idea like you did. Yum, that breakfast looks delicious ;-)

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  20. That breakfast looks too pretty to eat! But I'd eat it anyway ;) What a treat! Happy T Tuesday

  21. Deine Seite ist zugleich ruhig und dynamisch. Die Gestaltungsmotive sind ruhig und die rote Farbe mit den runterlaufenden Effekten wieder dynamisch. Ein super Werk in Balance. Gefällt mir sehr ,sehr gut. Das Frühstück sieht lecker aus,würde ich auch sofort haben wollen ;) Total lieb von deiner Tochter auch mal so nett an Mama zu denken.
    Liebe Grüße

  22. I love this page Susi! I too found red a difficult colour but now I am finding I reach for red a lot! How wonderful your daughter treated you to breakfast! Happy T Day, Chrisx

  23. Can't beat yummy food and fabulous art! Love your 'messy' red pieces! Happy T Day!💜

  27. That breakfast looks really nice. Waffles! What a treat indeed!
    Your art is beautiful. 50 shades of red was an inspired theme.
    Happy T-day,

  28. I like how you incorporated the tea bag packaging in the layout. The dripping red is great as it draw your eyes down the page. Beautiful spread!

  29. Making my late T-day rounds this morning. I saw your feather pages first, and now this one. You have really done some lovely works with Linda's 50 shades of red. I was a bit skeptical of the red, at first, but it became a lot of fun.
    Your breakfast photo made my stomach growl for some.....LOL!

  30. lecker dein Frühstück das darf auch mal sein ich hoffe du hast es so richtig genossen!
    Das Bild zeigt an ruhe bewahren tatsächlich so wie du es ausgedacht hast. Interessant!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  31. Another great page to admire!! Beuatifull colours and fantastic design, I love how you made the stitches!! And what a nice daughter you have , just enjoy all these little things!!

  32. Fabulous page - love the drips and doodles.
    Your breakfast surprise looks super - especially the waffles :)

  33. I love how the white branches work against the red - lovely page spread - and I think it's funny that your breakfast is a shade of red too!

  34. Spectacular and absolutely breathtaking! Hugs, Autumn

  35. You say Red is not your color, but you use it so well Susi! Love all the elements in this spread.
    And i LOVE that breakfast your daughter served up! What a sweet surprise from your sweet girl! xo
