Post No. 2229 Twinkle, Twinkle

A new theme over at Try It On Tuesday - Twinkle, Twinkle!

I put a bit of Star Dust Stickles by Ranger on my little star.

 And a tiny bit on the bird's eye.

Inktense Ink Pencils by Derwent on hot pressed watercolor paper. 8 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
It's also meant for our "Let's Celebrate" theme hosted by Sheila over at

And for the lovely gals at TSFT I have to show my big amaryllis.

 oh .. and where is the beverage?
just wait....

black decaf as always!

  1. Beautiful bird and amaryllis. Happy T Day!

  2. Liebe Susi,
    wieder eine wunderschöne Malerei. Der kleine Vogel lebt!
    Die Amaryllis ist prächtig. eine ganz tolle Blüte.
    Einen geruhsamen Tag wünscht dir

  3. Its a beautiful page Susi, the sparkles in the robins eye and star are a wonderful highlight twinkle.
    Your amaryllis is a super colour, enjoy your coffee.
    Happy T day wishes. Yvonne xx

  4. Hi Susi I just love your watercolours, especially that little robin...so cute xx

  5. That is a wonderful piece of art today Susi. Now that would make a wonderful Christmas card or wall art even. :) Th little bird is so adorable. And your Christmas amaryllis is beautiful. My mom loves her plants (even with her memory loss) and so I bought her a bulb to grow. Bright red just like yours. She has a huge window in her apartment which means she can have a little indoor garden still. Happy T day. Hope it's a good one.

  6. Twinkle twinkle always so sweet love your colouring...and YES black decaf ;O))))))

  7. You are getting such good results from these pencils, I am inspired and must get out my set again. The robin about to eat the berry is charming and I do like the white star. Christmas is definitely in the air now.

  8. Delightful and happy post, the star, bird which is gorgeous and you beautiful flower, so pretty.xx[aNNie]🎄

  9. Haha, die Hälfte vom Kaffee bereits ausgetrunken ... eine wunderschöne Amaryllis! Aber die Show stiehlt in diesem Beitrag auf jeden Fall dieser kleine Vogel mit der Beere im Schnabel, einfach zauberhaft! Ein supertolles Aquarell mit deinen neuen Stiften! Und nicht zu vergessen der twinkle twinkle Stern rechts oben :)

  10. herrlich blüht dein Amaryllisstock - und das vogerl ist wieder ein traum (ich liebe die derwent inktense auch, aber ich muss mir wie du jetzt auch mal Markierungen drauf machen, um die farben besser zu identifizieren). multipliziert (fotodruck) wär das auch eine tolle weihnachtskarte (witzig, das ich sowas denke, wo ich doch selber keine verschicke;)).
    hab einen schönen Advent ♥

  11. Liebe Susi
    wunderschön dein Rotkehlchen,
    doch deine Amaryllis ist einfach trauhaft.
    Gute Pflege ;-)
    Ich wünsche dir einen gemütlichen Nachmittag.
    LG Sadie

  12. Love your page with the robin and the saying is so true Susi!
    As always beautifully created. Lots of hugs from

  13. Your little robin is a beauty! I love how you used the Stickles to put a twinkle in his eye and to create your pretty twinkling star - perfect 😁. Your new Inktense pencils look and as always your painting is stunning! The amaryllis is such a beautiful colour and that looks like a big cup of decaf coffee too ...lol 😉. Wishing you a very Happy T Day dear Susi! J 😊

  14. A beautiful Robin.. how could I have missed him? We all need a little sparkle in our life and you've added just the right amount to your star.
    Warm Hugs & Wishes Tracey x

  15. So ein Meisterwerk. Der Stern funkelt herrlich zart und der Vogel ist zuckersüße.
    Liebe Grüße und schönen Nikolaustag

  16. I'm struck by the amaryllis. Gorgeous! Happy T Tuesday

  17. I love your bird very much. I need to get me a new amarylis I kept one going and passed on the baby plants for years-since 2003 the main bulb stopped blooming a couple years ago-so I need to treat myself to a new bulb.
    Happy Tuesday hugs Kathy

  18. I'm smiling as I type this - your lovely little robin and star, the fabulous amaryllis and your HUGE cup! Happy T Day! Chrisx

  19. Okaaayyy.... third attempt at a comment Susi...uuugghh...lol I just wanna say i LOVE your amaryllis and i miss having one myself.. :) Happy T day!! Hugs deb

  20. Very nice journal work! I love the watercolor look and use of white space. Happy T Day. 🙂☕️

  21. Yay an adorable Susi birdie to brighten my day, your skills at drawing them are amazing

  22. I love your art, Susi. You always share something special for tea. The robin is really neat. A few simple lines, a little color and voila ... lovely art! Your amaryllis is gorgeous. I used to grow them in a cooler clime and I still love seeing one in bloom.

    Happy T-day! hugs, Eileen

  23. I can't believe I missed this post, dear Susi. My most humble apologies. I simply adore your AJJ and TioT entry. It is beautiful. I adore the little robin and the twinkle in his eye and in the star.

    I was most impressed with your amaryllis. It was not only BIG, it was beautiful. And I loved the backdrop of your home with the typewriter, the doll, and the rest of the images that sit nearby. Of course, I was happy to see your decaf, too.

    Thanks for sharing your amaryllis and your lovely journal page with Art Journal Journey and T this Tuesday.

  24. beautiful beautiful journal page! (and coffee and flower!) xo

  25. As always so wonderful Susi - I dream on and know that one day I shall join you!

  27. Your little robin is adorable Susi! I was watching a blackbird taking a bath in my garden this morning, then preening his beautiful feathers, it must have been very cold water!
    Have a lovely day!
    Alison xx

  28. Liebe Susi,
    eine wunderschöne Weihnachtskarte mit einem Spruch, der zu Herzen geht.
    Die Amaryllis ist auch sehr, sehr schön, komischerweise habe ich diese Blume erst vor kurzem entdeckt.

  31. What a lovely wáter color birdie! And the star is very effective too.
    I love your amarillis. Beautiful! The burnt orange color is one of my favorite colours. I didn't get an amarillis this year as we are going away over the Christmas period. Next year I will get another one.
    Happy belated T-Day,

  32. I love that Robin, beautiful colouring.
