Post No. 2180 ••• YELLOW and BLUE makes GREEN

I wish you a happy weekend and am here with two spreads in my 

Colours In My World
the new theme the lovely Yvonne has chosen and is hosting this September.

Some microwave dried fern leaves - remnants of a former project.(HERE)

And a spread with just a quote laying around here,

 that music quote was a gift of a nice craftfriend
 - she stamped lovely quotes for me on white cardstock and sent them to me - the most of the many quotes she has sent me are used meanwhile, so just a few are now in my little scrapbox here on my work table .

Ein schönes Wochenende wünsche ich Euch heute mit zwei Doppelseiten in meinem Überbleibseljournal. Auf der ersten hab ich Farnblätter, die in der Mikrowelle getrocknet wurden - Reste eines älterern Projektes (HIER), aufgebraucht und die zweite entstand weil ein Stempelspruch übrig war. Eine liebe Bastelfreundin hat mir mal etliche schöne Stempelsprüche auf weissen Karton gestempelt und zugesandt und die waren immer sehr praktisch zu gebrauchen. Inzwischen sind nur mehr ganz wenige davon übrig und flattern hier in meiner kleinen Restekiste herum. Beide Doppelseiten sind gedacht für Yvonne's
Farbe in meiner Welt

Art Journal Journey

  7. Beautiful love the colour choice to.

  8. Both of these entries are fabulous, Susi. I was super impressed with the "dried" ferns. They added not just a bit of nature, but the beauty of the spread.

    For the second entry, I loved that you used an entire piece of vintage sheet music, as well as blue and green ephemera. It is a lovely entry, and I would never be able to choose one I liked better because both spreads are fabulous.

  9. I've been stamping and painting leaves and ferns lately. but i like how you used dried real ferns. These are great pages Susi. They feel like late summer. :) Sounds like you have a busy but fun weekend. Enjoy! I have a couple of fun things planned in the next 2 weekends so I am glad for a quiet weekend coming up. Have fun. Hugs-Erika

  12. these pages are so beautiful Susi!!Love your dried ferns. I just received a fern stencil I'm dying to use on a page or tag. Happy weekend to you!

  13. Gorgeous pages Susi, I am loving the gentle softer colours, they are so relaxing to the eye . The ferns and leaves look beautiful and the music sheet is a lovely layer to add.
    Yvonne xx

  15. Beautiful pages and a nice spread Susi!

  16. Such delicate pages. I do love ferns...well, and all kinds of botanicals. :)

  17. Zwei schöne klasse gestaltete Seiten. Wusste nicht daß man Blätter in der Mikrowelle trocknen kann ohne daß sie sich zusammen rollen.
    Liebe Grüße und schönes Wochenende.

  18. I wasn't sure if my comment from last night worked and I couldn't miss saying how beautiful these journal pages are Susi. The are such beautiful, calming colour shades. The music background is lovely and so are the wonderful ferns.
    Have a good weekend.
    Yvonne xx

  19. Es gefallen mir beide Doppelseiten sehr gut. Wie fixierst Du den Farn damit er nicht abbröckeln kann?! Dein Post hat mir zum Lesen viel Freude bereitet.

    Heute nur pauschal ein kurzer Kommentar bevor ich mich für einige Zeit in die Blogpause verabschiede...

    ...auf jedem Fall wünsche ich Dir ein wunderschönes Wochenende und
    sende herzliche Grüßle, Heidrun

  20. Beautiful pages, the ferns are fantastic and a great idea. Have a great weekend, Shirleyxx

  21. Beautiful pages Susi and such a lovely quote. Love how you've used the dried ferns.
    Avril xx

  22. Sehr schöne Seiten Susi! Blätter in der Mikrowelle trocken, gut Idee... geht das auch im Ofen? Oder rollen sich die Blätter dann - habe nämlich keine Mikro ;)

    1. Bitte NICHT im normalen Ofen - das könnte Feuer fangen!

  23. Love these pages, Susi! They are absolutely great! Kisses, my friend.

  24. Beautiful work Susi - love the way you use your colours, and the second page in particular really appeals to me. The mesh and the leaves are stunning.

  25. Both spreads are beautiful Susi! Love the dried ferns of the first and the second with the wording is just as fab!
    Hope your weekend is wonderful,like you!

  26. Both of your double page journal spreads are gorgeous! The lightness and peacefulness of your fern page is lovely with the light blue background and pop of yellow from the splatters 😁. I adore the richness of the colours on your music quote inspired page too and the lace looks so beautiful. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Our guests have gone home now so we've been busy cleaning and doing laundry. I'm now trying to catch-up on everyone's posts which may take some time 😉. This past week I haven't had any time in my craftroom either so I feel getting creative and artsy is a priority, maybe the housework can 😁. Happy Sunday! J 😊

  27. My favorite are the colors. I love blues and greens with that splash of yellow. The mix of real ferns and die cut stems are beautiful!

  28. such gorgeous journalling! and a wonderful quote as well. xo

  29. Eine tolle Seite wunderschön, man
    kann aber auch im Ofen trocknen 50- 60 Grad Umluft oder etwas mehrfängt kein Feuer ,wir trocknen alles so !
    Eine wunderschöne Woche
    wünscht dir

  30. Der Farn gefällt mir! Und die 'Unterwasserstimmung' - auch Platos Zitat! Schön <3

    Liebe Grüße,

  31. The blue and green musical page is sublime and I love the curved leaves. I've been peering at the leaves wondering just how you did this.
    The ferns are lovely in the first pages with the subtly painted background and writing and text.

  32. What lovely journal pages with the real ferns and wonderful sentiment quote! Great color choices too! Julia xx

  33. More lovely nature pages (ever since your AVJ guest post I've been enjoying these!) - and as you'll have seen by now, I love the Plato quote so much that it appears on my new stamp plate!
