Post No. 2146 - Happy 4th of July --TAGS and Ice-Cream

First of all I wish a very Happy 4th of July to all  my American friends, be safe.

TAGs is our new theme over at Try It On Tuesday!
TAGs ist unser neues Thema bei Try It On Tuesday!

I  used a lot of tags on this loose page for my Journal Folder.
I hope to see you at TIOT's as well!
Ich habe ne Menge Tags auf dieser Einzelseite für meinen Journal Ordner verarbeitet.
Ich hoffe Dich auch bei TIOT's zu sehen!

Hello girls over at TSFT!
I wish you a wonderful T-Day with my obligatory cup of black decaf .

( mein obligater schwarzer koffeinfreier Kaffee für TSFT

And a fast made page with ice-cream for ART JOURNAL JOURNEY where Elizabeth wants us all to join her lovely SUMMERTIME- LOVE theme. I have so many ideas for that theme, can't wait to implement all this ideas. I got a very cheap 24 watercolor - school- pan set at the discounter for just 3,50  Euro - and I had to try out this colors instantly. They are not the best quality but I like them - good enough for making backgrounds and other work - and even useable on fabric - at least stated by the manufacturer - I will test that soon as well - a bargain buy for sure.    

Und noch eine schnell gemalte Seite mit Eiscreme für Art Journal Journey, wo Elizabeth uns alle zu ihrem Summertime Love Thema einlädt. Ich hab so viele Ideen dazu, dass ich es kaum erwarten kann all die Ideen möglichst schnell umzusetzen. Hier hab ich ein Schnäppchen vom Discounter getestet. Ein 24 er Farbdeckkasten um 3.50 Euro - in Deutschland kostet er nur 3 Euro (Stylex bei TEDi), nicht die beste Qualität natürlich diese Wasserfarben, aber für Hintergründe und andere Arbeiten sicher super geeignet - soll angeblich sogar auf Stoff halten laut Herstellerangabe, das werde ich bald auch mal testen.

15 x 23 cm - 6 x 9 inches watercolorpaper /Aquarellpapier

Thank you for your visit! Danke für Deinen Besuch!




  1. So many wonderful creations. Enjoy your black decaffeinated coffee! Happy T Day!

  2. liebe susi, du warst während meiner blogpause so fleißig und hast so tolle dinge gemacht! ganz begeistert war ich von den schönen blütenbildern, wo du die pflanzen in der microwelle getrocknet hast (das video dazu fand ich allerding ziemlich gräßlich!) - ich besitze leider eine solche nicht, sonst hätte ich gleich versuche damit gemacht!
    eis haben wir im urlaub auch viel gegessen, ich liebe ja das dänische softeis!!
    liebe grüße

  3. Liebe Susi,
    Ich bin echt beeindruckt. Bei jedem Thema passen die Farben perfekt. Die Farben vom Eis wirken tatsächlich etwas kalt. Aber wunderschön.
    Ich kann nicht glauben, dass du deine Bilder mit einem 'Tuschkasten`malst. Das ist ja unglaublich.
    Ich freue mich schon auf deine nächsten Bilder
    LG susa

  4. FANTASTIC post, as always and love the wonderful imaginative designs you have here, hugs.xx [aNNie]

  5. Oh Susi! I love all these tags on you journal page and such a lovely quote! Hope your bargain paints serve you well, the colours are beautiful! I have an ice-cream page in mind too! Happy T Day! Chrisx

  6. Love this! Your works is gorgeous.

  7. Its a gorgeous page with all the tags, beautiful soft colours.
    You got a bargain with those paints and the page you created looks wonderful. Yummy ice crams ans lolly pops, perfect for summer days
    Happy T day.

  8. Happy T Day Susi

    Love your ideas for the tag challenge and great summer project

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Oh wow your tag looks amazing! Loving the texture in the background too! Your AJ is scrumptious too!! LOVE the colors!! :) HUGS

  10. Oh Susi, I simply adore your awesome tags. They are truly beautiful. I want to make something like that, too. You have inspired me. I have never used more than one tag on a spread before, but I can see how beautiful several tags held together look so elegant and pristine.

    Of course, I simply adore your incredible AJJ entry today. You not only know how to draw, you are a master at watercolors, which I understand are very difficult to control. I like how you added the sentiment behind the focal ice cream images. This entire spread is fabulous.

    Thanks for sharing your incredible art, as well as your black decaf with us for T this Tuesday. And thanks for being so supportive at AJJ.

  11. Oh Susi, I'm not sure if I thanked you for your lovely AJJ entry today, as well as your T post. I've been up too long and my brain is probably on meltdown right now.

  12. A great way to use all those tags Susi - and so much fabulous texture and layers - love it!
    Your new paints were a great bargain - lovely colours too - fabulous ice creams! wishing I had one right now :)
    Thanks for the lovely comments yesterday - I'm hoping the numbness and tingling in my finger tip goes soon so I can get back to normal (normal? ha ha )
    Have a great day... Gill xx

  13. A fabulous journal page Susi, love how you've included so much texture on there and a great way to use so many tags.
    The ice cream page is such fun and I love the bit about ice cream calories don't count.
    Avril xx

  14. Wonderful tags and they look so perfect photographed with your red mug. The paints look like a great bargain. I love the way paintboxes look all brand new. I enjoyed the colors and illustrations on your Summer treats journal page. Too bad the sentiment about calories wasn't true :-D Have a great day!

  15. Your tags are so elegant and grungy, I love how you have layered them to create texture and interest! They set off the red heart beautifully 😀. Ice cream is the best summer treat and I love the way you added the wording as the background to this piece. I'm now off to raid the freezer, I know I have some ice cream in there somewhere and I'm going to make some chocolate fudge sauce to go with it - yum! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J 😊

  16. Liebe Susi,
    ich bin wieder begeistert, die Seite ist wundervoll gestaltet und es passt einfach alles zusammen.
    Bei dem Malkasten musste ich unwillkürlich an die Schulwerke meiner Kinder denken und war dann überrascht, welch tolles Bild Du mit so einem Malkasten gezaubert hast.
    Ich wünsche Dir eine wunderschöne Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  17. That way you made tags and layered them is fantastic Susi. I can't believe it is already a new challenge. I have sure lost track of time and missed numbers and letters completely. :( But your tg page with so much white is amazing. Funny how white on white gives such a beautiful texture. And I think ice cream and popsicles (as we call them here) makes a super summer time idea. I have lots going through my head too for that challenge. Hope today is great day for you and you have an ice cream or other cold treat to enjoy your day. Hugs-Erika

  18. Oh Susi you are such a prolific artist with so many clever and creative pieces. I LOVE your layered tags page! What a wonderful color combo gray and red is -great photo. And your bargain watercolors made perfectly colorful ice cream bars-love it! Happy T day too!

  19. Oh Susi, du bist ja momentan unglaublich fleißig, jeden Tag ein so toller Beitrag von dir... gestern, die Mohnblumen so wunderschön duftig aquarelliert und heute die aufwändige Tagseite. Meine Güte, was du hier alles eingearbeitet hast, es sieht super aus!
    Ganz lieben Gruß von Ulrike
    PS ... ich habe das neue Blumenpressverfahren ausprobiert, es klappt gut!

  20. Thank you fo the 4th of July wishes, Susi. it's very thoughtful of you to remember our national holiday.

    Gorgeous tag! I love the pop of red on the monochromatic background with so much going on - layers, texture, shading. It's stunning!
