Post No. 2177 - ORANGE in the REMAINS OF THE DAY Journal

We had a really great month over at Art Journal Journey with Jo's fabulous theme and I want to say THANK YOU to all the many participants and to our fantastic and inspiring hostess Jo!

 I am really happy to present my blog- and DT-friend Yvonne over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY as our hostess for the month of September. Yvonne has chosen


as her theme for this month. Hop over to ART JOURNAL JOURNEY to learn more about the new theme.

 I decided to think about my love affairs with certain colours this month.

As you maybe have seen ( HERE) I have a REMAINS OF THE DAY journal to fill and 
I started with one of my FAVOURITE COLOURS to fill it up :


Hope to see many of you (again) over at

Ein neues Thema bei AJJ - Farbe in meiner Welt - Yvonne ist diesmal Hostess, was mich sehr freut!

Ich hab mir für diesen Monat vorgenommen ein bisschen in meinen Lieblingsfarben zu schwelgen.  Die obige Doppelseite im "Überbleibseljournal " hab ich mit Orange gefüllt, eine meiner absoluten Lieblingsfarben.
Vielleicht hast Du ja auch wieder Lust mitzumachen bei AJJ - wär schön Dich begrüßen zu dürfen auf dem Challengeblog.


  1. Gorgeous colours, lovely theme from Yvonne!

  2. Oh Susi, what a perfect way to start this month's AJJ entry. You are such a fabulous administrator. I don't see how you do it all, make art for other challenges, and administer AJJ. Hats off to you for doing this. Jo's first time hosting was a HUGE success. I was really impressed, both with her art and her hosting. She did a super job.

    LOVE the vibrant orange. It's a wonderful, healthy color.

  3. Liebe Susi dein Journal mit der Farbe Orange ist grossartig und das Video. Orange ist eien wunderschöne Farbe wieviel davon überall erscheint!Farbe in meiner Welt ist wunderbar!
    Ich wünsche dir viel Spass bei all dem was du kretaives machst und eienn schönen Freitag!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  6. Susi, thank you so much for asking me to host this month at AJJ. I feel very honoured and so pleased you liked the choice of theme I chose for this month.
    AJJ is a very special and inspiring blog.
    I love your' Orange', colour choice for this fabulous journal spread.
    It is a colour that seems to warm the heart and spread happiness when looking at it.
    I enjoyed the link you added as well.
    I hope it will be a colourful month for us all.
    Yvonne xx

  7. Stunning, Susi - I definitely don't have a love affair with orange, but seeing this I can see how one might fall in love. It's like autumn sunshine on a page. Gorgeous!

  10. This is such a good idea to think about colours individually.
    We love Orange here and enjoyed the video.
    Your musical Orange pages are delightful.
    I second Elizabeth (and Bleubeard's) comment, you are a wonderful administrator and encourager, always enthusiastically commenting without fail, and yes, we all did have a great time with Jo's month.

  11. A fabulous page and a great challenge theme, I love the orange. Have a lovely weekend.

  12. I love the remains of your day Susi, that splash of orange is simply wonderful! A beautiful page in your stitched journal.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend,
    Alison xx
    P.S. I will definitely be visiting AJJ a LOT this month! ;-)

  13. Orange is a wonderful choice especially for the season! Nice work!

  14. Oh wow! Your journal pages never disappoint, Susi. I love the bold orange and the circle. Your style is so free and I love it! Happy weekend!

  15. Love this vibrant orange Journal spread, very inspiring!!

  16. ein tolles thema! orange findet sich bei mir so gar nicht, weil ich immer eher die blau-grau-grün-schattierungen bevorzuge. aber bei anderen finde ich diese farbe auch immer toll - so wie hier in deinem journal!
    liebe grüße

  17. Beautiful. Love the orange and how you have used it xxx

  18. Wunderschön - deine Journalseite und das Video! Orange zählt auch zu meinen Lieblingsfarben - das Zimmer, wo mein Computer steht, habe ich vor Jahren orange ausgemalt - und ich liebe es noch immer.
    Ein tolles neues Thema! Jo als Hostess im August war wunderbar!
    Liebe Grüße, Rike

  19. Schönes neues Thema diesen Monat und deine Seite dazu ist auch wieder klasse gemacht. Danke fürs Teilen des Videos.
    Liebe Grüße und schönes Wochenende.

  20. Love how you have used the orange on this fabulous journal page Susi. <ay your weekend be as bright

  21. I love your "remains of the day" Susi! That phrase always makes me think of the German vintage mercury glass Christmas ornaments!
    I too think orange is truly a beautiful and energizing color- happy you chose that for the first page!
    I hope to be over to AJJ this month as well, so look for me!
    Happy weekend my dear friend, glad to have brought some sunshine into your dreary day!
    Sending hugs & love,Jackiexx

    einen schönen samstag.

    schöne grüße jenny

  23. gorgeous page and colors!!! great new theme for AJJ too. Must get going on it:)

  24. I love this new journal and the inspirational pages that you are creating! Your orange page is beautiful and reminds me of a sunset serenade with the beautiful colours and music sheet you used 😁. Hope you had a lovely weekend and wishing you a happy new week dear Susi! J 😊
    p.s. not sure if you actually added this page to AJJ? Sorry I'm late to the AJJ party, we have family staying so I've found I haven't had much spare time. Made time last night when everyone was in bed to post my latest page! Do you remember talking about Strauss a couple of weeks ago, well I created a page as a result of our conversation, thank you and I hope you like it 😁. Happy September! J 😊

  25. What a glorious 'remains', Susi, and I loved the video too...what great inspiration for my fave colour!
