2275 ♣ Moo Mania & More No. 162



is our new theme over at 
Moo Mania & More.
I came up with a quick spread in my blue Junk Journal using some recycled images out of an advertising flyer. The background was cheesecloth over a green patterned paper and some white gesso - patiently waiting in the blue journal for good use over a long time.
I sewed a bit on my sewing machine and left the loose ends of  the  threads to show movement. 

And of course I will link this spread to our
theme over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY.

We have so much fun with Rosie's theme  at Art Journal Journey, so thanks for joining in!
And for those of you who were new to AJJ, it was wonderful to meet you!



  1. Oh Susi, I so enjoy your art journals and this is perfect for Easter!!!
    I love everything that you used and the way that you used it!!!

    You are my inspiration to keep an artistic heart and to be creative in anyway that I am able to...thank you ❤❤❤

  2. Liebe Susi, Dein Oster-Spread gefällt mir sehr gut und ich habe jetzt Lust auf ein Ei zum Frühstück. :)

  3. It's lovely to have a part prepared page ready to be adorned or decorated, love those raw stitched edges. Your Easter Theme has put it to good use and that boiled egg has given me food for thought as I now know what to have for my breakfast hee heee!!
    Happy Day Susi.
    Creative wishes Tracey x

  4. Liebe Susi
    eine tolle Seite, ja Ostern ist nicht mehr weit, aber wie
    es bei uns im Moment schneit, da können wir die Eier im Schnee suchen, tzzz- hoffentlich nicht.
    Das weiche Ei wäre jetzt echt lecker ;)
    Bist du eigentlich mit deinen Umräumarbeiten fertig?
    Ich wünsche dir einen wunderschönen Tag.
    LG Sadie

  5. Hi Susi love your page ,you are so clever my friend xx

  6. Liebe Susi,
    du hast immer besondere ausgefallene schöne Ideen!
    Toll sieht es aus...

    Sei lieb gegrüßt

  7. I am not sure which I like more, the broken eggshells or the journal spread. Both show great incentive. I was really impressed with the sewing and agree that leaving the threads long shows movement. I also am thrilled to see anything recycled, and your beautiful spread clearly shouts that! So glad you shared it with Art Journal Journey and of course, I love it when you can create twofers.

  8. A fabulous Easter spread Susi, I love the cheesecloth background and stitching.

  11. That is an interesting background Susi and I love it. It makes nice texture. I like the chicken and eggs too. Very fun!!!!hey say more snow here tonight-but they keep changing the amounts so who knows? I hope it is zero new snow. Oh this March. When does it end? Not soon enough I think. Hope you have sunshine and a beautiful day. Hugs-Erika

  12. Das Foto mit den Eierschalen ist bereits ein Kunstwerk für sich!
    Aber du hast das noch getoppt mit der Journalseite und dem dünnen Stoff mit den genähten Linien! Und diese Dotterspritzer sind wirklich genial!
    KNUDDEL Liebes!

  13. Wonderful Easter pages! I love the recycled images and how you matched them with the cheesecloth and eggy splatters 😉. Wishing you a lovely day dear Susi! J 😊 x

  14. My goodness how creative is this post. Love the broken eggshells colours and everything about this delightful post.xx💖 [Aussie aNNie's Blog]

  15. Delightful images to celebrate Easter, Susi! Both are so creative (particularly love that stitching) and just perfect to complements to the themes.
    Hugs, Chris

  16. A wonderful spread Susi, sweet and fun and so Easter- I love your hen serving the boiled egg :-) to celebrate Easter , and also love the cheesecloth with sewings, and the little green popping through !!
    Hugs, Dorthe- xo

  17. A lovely Easter spread Susi, love your idea of sewing the cheesecloth to the pages adds a lovely soft texture.

  18. Eine wunderschöne Osterseite. Wie immer genial umgesetzt.
    Liebe Grüße

  19. Fabulous Easter pages, I do like how you add sewing and leave the threads. Great layers and you found super details to add.
    I thought about soft boiled eggs and buttered toast fingers [we call them toast soldiers here] as soon as I saw the eggs.

  20. I love the stitching and the loose threads. The gauze and paint drips are so pretty against the white. It makes them really pop! A lovely page, Susi.

  21. I love the stitching on this super spread Susi! xxx

  22. Originell gestaltete Osterseiten. Die gelben Eigelbspritzer sind perfekt dazu. Das Genähte gibt den besonderen Pfiff, super gemacht.
    Liebe Grüße

  23. What a wonderful spread, Susi - and the addition of sewing and flying threads is just the perfect touch.

  24. Hi Susi, I love your newest art page and I am very excited that you got a new cast iron pan-sounds like a really good price too-would love to see those dessert pancakes-hugs

  25. Another wonderful spread Susi - I love the photo at the top of your post with the words on the broken egg shells too!
