Post No 2181 - GREEN - BROWN - YELLOW

I wish you a happy Sunday and am here with a spread in one of my Journals meant for ART JOURNAL JOURNEY
Colours In My World
the beautiful theme the lovely Yvonne has chosen and is hosting this September.
I will link my spread also to Creative Artist Challenge Blog.

 I have used some microwave dried  plant material again - 
dried in the microwave oven ( like so )  as already mentioned earlier .(HERE)

Together with used tea bags and some other scraps and remnants ...

I came up with this spread . And since there is some stitching involved ( left side)
 it's a reminder for our STITCH IT theme over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY as well.

Thank you for watching my

This spread is in my leather bound Art Journal , I love it very much .

 It's very good to work in.

Einen schönen Sonntag wünsch ich Euch heute mit einer Doppelseite in
gedacht für AJJ. Ich hab getrocknetes Pflanzenmaterial verwendet und zusammen mit gebrauchten Teebeuteln und andere Restchen und Überbleibseln diese Seiten gestaltet, die zu im obigen Text genannten Challenges passen . Gemacht hab ich die Doppelseite in meinem handgebundenen Leder Kunsttagebuch. Wunderbar um darin arbeiten.


  1. awsome, and great idea with the microwave ;O))

  2. Hello my friend, I just LOVE this, but then I love everything you make. I need to try the microwave dried flower technique, but need to find the right flowers. [I will probably over cook them lol].
    You are an [aNNie]

  3. Oh Susi, I am in awe of your fabulous spread. I like the interactive part of the spread, too. It's always fun to include an element that gives the viewer a hands on approach. And I love how you incorporated nature with your pieces. This spread is incredible and jaw dropping gorgeous. Hope your Sunday is great.

  4. Beautiful pages! The layers you have created with the paints, gesso, papers and dried plants and leaves is wonderful 😁. I like the way you have created the leaves as a backdrop for your quote too and those stamped pieces of fabric with the little beads sewn on are such a pretty addition! Wishing you a very Happy Sunday and a great new week dear Susi! J 😊

  5. diese getrockene doppelte Blumenseite ist wunderschön, was man alles sieht an Details so toll ausgedacht alles.
    Eine faszinierende Doppelseite!!!
    Schönen Sonntag!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  6. This looks gorgeous Susi, I love all the layers and pieces that you used here. The micro wave dried foliage looks beautiful, I will have to try that out sometime soon. I love the colour choices in your world today.

  12. Cool little flip page. I would have never guessed. The dried flowers makes lovely additions too. So has your whole day been cold? Did it interfere with your plans today? I hope you found something inexpensive and fun to buy at the sale yesterday. My weekend has been quiet. It's been chilly here-not cold enough for heat but it did come on the other day. Happy new week. hugs-Erika

  20. What a wonderful and textural spread Susi - love how you have incorporated the plant material into it.

  21. This is great with the actual plants.
    There is some very unusual colouring here almost as if you have invented new colours.

  22. Wow wieder ganz raffiniert gestaltet mit dem Text auf den Blättern.
    Klasse Seiten.

  23. Ganz fantastisch sind diese 'Herbarium-Seiten'. Du hast es drauf! LG Ulrike

  25. Die Seiten sehen super aus, liebe Susi! Naturthemen mag ich ja immer besonders gern. Von der Mikrowellen-Methode habe ich kürzlich schon mal gelesen. Das scheint ja sehr praktisch zu sein und natürlich schnell.
    Herzliche Grüße

  26. This is so stunning Susi!
    I so love when you use your dried flowers in pieces and that journal is perfect- I had no idea of the size of your pages till you showed this- even more impressive is your artwork at this scale!
    love to you,Jackie

  27. Eine ganz tolle Wirkung hat diese Doppelseite mit den getrockneten Pflanzen! Es erinnert mich an ein Herbarium, doch deines ist viieel interessanter gestaltet! Sehr schön mit diesem Ledereinband!
