2277 ----- S P R I N G ----- and ----- Einstein

As you already know for sure our theme at 
S P R I N G.

A spread in my blue Journal for Rosie's theme . 
Well more than 100 entries again at the 
 AJJ- Challenge Blog.

edit: to answer
I'm curious about the cut circles that spell out Spring. 

This is babywipe colored once with rests of yellow acrylic color - and guess what ? I cut the circles  out  in a careless way, just like that and  am proud now when I see how perfectly circular they are--or maybe the green touch of pastel crayon made them look so nice and round..... who knows?!
You are amazing girls!! I just can't believe how  many artists always play at Art Journal Journey each month! It is so fun and interesting to see all the ideas and the clever techniques .
I learn so much from all the participants and get so much inspiration!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart !!

At TMTA Dani hase chosen 
EINSTEIN for this week.
I had no desire to look through all my rubber stamps for an Einstein stamp - I even think I don't own any Einstein rubber stamp. I once sketched this above portrait on a spread - shown - HERE , but that didn't help me in any way now, I didn't want to sketch or paint Einstein again. I decided to just go with  a quote by Einstein this time for my TMTA - ATC.

You can't blame gravity for falling in LOVE.

The ATC was further processed onto a spread in my  
I used some dried rose petals from a bouquet my dear hubby gave me for Valentine's Day in February. I love to 
 dry flowers and leaves in the microwave oven.

Hope you enjoy this weekend!
Thank you very much for visiting me!




  1. Who could not be encouraged and inspired by the knowledge and being of Einstein.. You have me thinking of I stamp I may have now hee hee!! Super pages with heartfelt embellishments and stitches oh my!! We are spoiled Susi. Thank you for sharing this Saturday.

  3. Genial.... dein Einstein ist der Hammer. So frech und lebhaft, deine frühlingstulpen sind wunderschön.

  4. Liebe Susi
    alles ist einfach toll, dieser Frühling in gelb,
    ach wenn es nur bald soweit wäre ;-))
    Ich finde Einstein klasse!
    Die Idee in der Mikrowelle Blumen zu trocknen, darauf wäre ich
    nie gekommen - und passt das immer, oder verbrennt schon mal was? -)) man lernt nie aus.
    Wünsche dir ein fröhliches Wochenende.
    Viele Grüße

  5. Wow, what amazing pages! I love the spring tulips with the cheesecloth and pretty stitched discs - beautiful 😁. Your Einstein pieces are fabulous too, the quote you used is wonderful and goes perfectly with the heart shaped rose petals. So nice of your hubby to buy you roses for valentine's too, what a sweetie! Happy Weekend dear Susi! J 😊 x

  6. Liebe Susi
    das Frühlingsjournal hat seinen Reiz vom fantasievollem...
    Der Einstein auch ohne Stempel hast du toll gezeichnet und dein ideereichetum im ACT festgehalten. Die getrockenen Blumenblätter passen wunderschön dazu!!!
    Wunderschön alle deine Werke!

  7. Love the Einstein quote - great artwork, Susi. The Spring spread is wonderful and I love your sketch! You're so talented :-)

  8. Those tulips are amazing Susi. Using the cheesecloth makes a fantastic background and I love your painted flowers. Tulips are gorgeous. I can see why they are your favorite flowers.Love your Einstein quote and the older card too. Hope you are doing something fun this weekend. I am trying to decide what to do today. I really want to go walking-maybe the beach since the mud is so deep here. But better mud than snow. :) Happy weekend Susi. Hugs-Erika

  9. That's a gorgeous zen journal spread, Susi! The dried petals are beautiful and add so much to the overall feel. I sat staring at it for at least a minute and felt very zen indeed. So calming ... aaah.

    The Einstein ATC is wonderful too - very clever take on a fascinating, amazing man. I like how you paraphrased his quote.

    Spring - yay! Your tulips are lovely. I see lot of pretty dimension in the close up photo. That's a spread I'd love to run my fingers over.

    Beautiful work!!

  10. Its an awesome spring journal page Susi, I really liked how you used the gauze materials and the sewing. Nothing beats seeing some beautiful tulip, like the ones you painted here, at this time of the year.
    A fantastic quote for your ATC, and I love the way you added it to the journal with the dried petals.
    Have a good weekend.
    Yvonne xx

  11. Whew! You've been so busy, Susi! Love your beautiful images and that perfect quote.
    Great post!
    Kind regards, Chris

  12. These are all so gorgeous! I just love all of the textures you put into your work. It's always so beautifully layered and the colours and materials are so cool. Wonderful!

  13. Two really fun pages!

  14. I'm curious about the cut circles that spell out Spring. They remind me of my handmade paper. I love the texture you created in this journal entry. The entire entry is incredibly well done, very romantic, and the pastel colors are perfect for the spring theme at Art Journal Journey.

    I fell in LOVE with love of the Einstein quote. The idea of recycling the rose petals is also very romantic. Stunning on both fronts. Hope your day is going well. Mine is PURRFECT.

  15. You are an inspiration with your lovely and gorgeous blue journal pages!!!
    I must start working on my journals again...thank you again for the inspiration!!!
    I may not be able to paint much anymore but I can still be creative :)

    Big Hugs

  16. Beautiful work Susi! I love Einstein and his quotes, great job with his portrait I recognized him immediately.

  17. These are such fun layouts. I really love the first one with the flowers. I like it when you use gauze in your background.
    Your Einstein painting is amazing! Beautiful!

  18. wow,wundervolle seiten hast du gemacht und den einstein hast du ganz toll gezeichnet.
    die idee bei der tulpen seite das mit gipsband zu hinterlegen ist großartig,und deine herzen seite ist auch wunderschön,tolle texturen,und das genähte bei deinen seiten find ich immer klasse,ich selbst bin zum nähen zu faul*LOL*
    einen schönen sonntag,liebe susi.

  19. Susi!
    You say you learn so much from others, this may be true, but we also learn so much from you!
    These pages are fabulous! I just adore the Spring one, with those baby wipes and stitching and yes, perfect circles!
    And your Einstein piece came out just beautifully with your rose petals- how perfect is that! And given to you by your husband on Valentine's~such a perfect match!
    Thank you for my morning dose of happiness!
    sending love,Jackie

  20. Such a beautiful spring journal spread and a wonderful ATC and page.
    xxx Hazel.

  21. So lovely with the cheese cloth Susi, and the sweet spring tones, and your spread, oh so gorgeous, too- I love you used the rose petals , gives such a soft tone to it .
    A wonderful Sunday to you .

  22. Love your spring spread, love the flowers!
    Great job with your Einstein too, love the mixed media feel of your work!

  23. ganz, ganz tolle seiten!! ich mag die genähten buchstaben, sie wirken dreidimensional zusammen mit dem zarten stoff zusammen, auch die farben sind so zart frühlinshaft. die einstein-seiten sind wirklich genial geworden, so toll mit den getrockneten blüten und dem genähten!
    liebe grüße

  24. Liebe Susi,
    mir gefällt besonders wie Du den Frühling zu Papier gebracht hast. Alles, was ihn ausmacht findet man in Deinem Werk, vor allem aber die Beschwingtheit, die er in alle Lebewesen pflanzt.
    Kaum zu glauben, dass Du beim Ausschneiden der Kreise achtlos vorgegangen sein willst, sie sehen perfekt aus.
    Einstein ist schwierig, wohl nicht zuletzt auch in der Kunst, jeder kennt ihn und die Arbeit, die ihn berühmt gemacht hat, aber wissen wir, was seine Arbeit bedeutet?
    Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Start in die Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  25. Fabulous inspirational pages Susi! I love the Einstein quote too!
    Have a lovely day!
    Alison xx

  26. Wieder einmal bin ich hin und weg, tolle Umsetzung und wunderbare Seiten zeigst Du uns immer. Vielen Dank fürs Mitmachen bei Think Monday, Think ATC.
    Herzliche Ostergrüße

  27. Eine supertolle Mixed-Media-Seite! Mir gefallen die schwarzen Linien um die Tulpen sehr und diese Kreise, wundervoll wie sie entstanden sind!
    Dein gezeichneter Einstein ist fabelhaft und die integrierte Einstein-Zitat-ATC ebenfalls - so schön mit der getrockneten Blüte, die du als Liebes-Geschenk erhalten hast, also die Blumen :)!
    Sei lieb gegrüßt, Rike

  28. Hi friend, loving the way you used the cheesecloth on your layout, unique and creative, just like you!! Pretty Spring tulips and colors too, gives me hope that Spring will soon be here.


  29. Wundervoll! Beide Seiten - die gelben Tulpen lassen mich sehnsuchtsvoll seufzen. Und die Einstein-Seite mit den getrockneten Rosenblüten, über die du einfach darübergenäht hast :D finde ich großartig!

    Liebe Grüße,

  30. Beautiful pages, Susi! I've been so busy I haven't checked out the AJJ site in a while. Fabulous theme this month. I still have time..better hurry!!

  31. Ylur Einstein art with dried rose petals is super! Wishing you a nice & creative week!

  32. I haven't been to see the tulip displays yet, and your lovely art makes me remember I need to go. Such bright, welcome signs of spring, and the yellow ones have always been favorites :) I'm not familiar with that Einstein quote, but I like what you did with it.

  33. What lovely pages Susi - the spring one is so pretty, and I do like the Einstein quote! :-) Great use of the petals on that page.

  34. WOW WOW WOW, das sind ja tolle Werke. Die Tulpen sind so klasse, wäre es doch schon so weit ;) Auch die andere Seite ist super, es gibt viel zu entdecken.

  36. Those spring tulips are amazing, Susi, and I love your Einstein quote. It's not one I'd heard before, but it's a dandy!

  37. Great spring piece. Love how you got the letters to pop. Gives it a great dimension! Your Einstein is so fun! Great quote too!

    Peace Giggles

  38. What a fabulous post! Love both of your journal pages - the LOVE page is especially beautiful! Great idea to use the ATC for part of it! Hugs,Chrisx
