Masculine - a new theme at MOO MANIA & MORE today.
RECYCLE & COLLAGE at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY, hosted by Alison/ Craftytrog and last but not least we
 "Recycle Something" over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY.

 I have a "one for all challenges" loose page for my
 made up of all kinds of recycled items. All started with the papers of the outer packagings of my 
Sweet Chilly Ayurveda Organic spice tea.

 They were glued on a recycled packaging of cereals.

Next came some cheesecloth and white gesso  and crayons and a nice german quote found in an advertising flyer - I would translate it as 

 O.K. and then I went round the twist and ended up with 
a  crazy collage.

 I hope you had all a happy start into April and you would make me happy to be with us (again) at all the mentioned challenges 
 this month !



  1. Your crazy collage is fun! Does 'einzig' mean unique?

  2. Das ist eine tolle Collage, liebe Susi! Den rechten Herrn finde ich ja etwas gruselig, aber gleichzeitig auch faszinierend. Das Käsetuch macht sich prima!
    Herzliche Grüße

  3. Liebe Susi
    wie immer ist dein Werk "einzigartig", gefällt mir
    sehr gut.
    Ich wünsche dir noch einen kreativen Tag.
    LG aus dem Mühlviertel

    Lieben Gruss Elke

  5. You really made nice use of recycled materials and that is an interesting twist. I like this crazy page-it could be men and their demons. Hope all is well. I woke up to rain this morning-and that is really a sign winter is maybe done...April showers bring May flowers as the saying goes. Happy Wednesday. hugs-Erika

  6. Hi Susi wow this page is amazing love your technique ,well done my friend xx

  7. Oh Suis, jetzt habe ich meinen halbfertigen Kommentar abgeschickt. Ich wollte sagen: Das ist großartig geworden! Der Typ, aus dem so viele herausschauen :D beeindruckt mich ganz besonders. Auch der schwarze Faden als Schnurrbart gefällt mir gut.

    Liebe Grüße,

  8. Fantastic use of recycled materials and your collage is brilliant. Love ❤️❤️. Tracy ❤️

  9. That mustache! This is one of a kind :) and I got such a kick out of it.

  10. I love this mixed collage page...especially the masculine theme!

  11. Its a fantastic collage page Susi. I love how you used the packages and materials. The tea flavour does sound really delicious.

  12. Really like the sound of that Chilli spiced Tea, sounds like the perfect beverage for this inclement weather. Love your crazy page Susi, we all need a little crazy in our lives to appreciate the norm and who would argue with a cotton thread moustache hee hee!!!
    Creative hugs coming your way Tracey xx

  13. Brilliant Collage! Love how you started and then added some crazy touches! Hugs,Chrisx

  14. How original, Susi! The "one for all challenges" idea has worked well today!

  15. I broke my keyboard today, so this is brief. I am in total AWE of this wonderful recycled collage. It is so different and unique. I am so, so, so impressed with your recycling efforts. They are SO MUCH BETTER than mine, dear friend. Special AJJ wishes for you, dear.

  16. Looks fun and perfect images to go with that quote, neat to see how it all started out too!

  17. Amazing collage Susi but a little scary in places. Great use of recyled stuff.

    Love Chrissie xx

  18. What a fabulous collage, Susi - outstanding. That moustache is inspired, and I've got to ask my hubby to grow one just like it! LOVE it!

  19. Was für eine verrückt-coole Collage, Susi. Total toll, ein bisschen Hieronimus Bosch inspiriert vielleicht... an ihn musste ich jedenfalls denken. Du schlägst hiermit ein bisschen eine neue Richtung ein, die mir sehr gefällt!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  20. Crazy indeed and Oh so cool! I absolutely love that you used recycled tea packaging in the background. The colors and gauze are perfect. But the faces and the mustache are my favorite!

  21. Wow your talent truly comes out in this great piece of art.

  22. Your collage is absolutely stunning and great.

  23. What a fabulous page! I love how you created the panel background with the recycled cereal packaging and the moustache made of thread is genius 😀. I hope you are having a lovely time with your family over the holidays, Happy Friday and Weekend dear Susi! J 😊 x

  27. super, der bart den du GM verpasst hast:) die zweite figur ist auch total surreal. und cheesecloth ist auch eins meiner lieblingsmaterialien. cooler spruch, merk ich mir;)

    im übrigen bist du eine meisterin des recyclings, kaum jemand beherrscht das so gut wie du:9

    hab ein schönes sonniges WE, liebe susi - liebe grüße!

    (so, ich gewöhn mir jetzt an, meine kommentare erstmal separat zu tippen und sie dann einzufügen... es ist mir jetzt nämlich zum wiederholten mal passiert, dass mein kommentar kurz vor schluss einfach weg war - warum weiß ich nicht - und dann weiß ich bei den moderierten kommentaren nicht, ob sie jetzt durchgegangen sind oder nicht. pfft, die tricks ich jetzt aus;))

  28. eine total irrsinnige coole collage susi,mal ganz was andres von dir und es gefällt mir sehr.
    es ist schon richtig surreal.
    einen schönen tag.

    schöne grüße jenny

  32. This is the first I've ever heard the expression "round the twist", probably because I'm American, but I absolutely LOVE it. I also love what you've got going on here this week, Susi. :) Awesome work!

  33. Hahahaha! You went round the twist and this crazy collage appeared, a crazy masculine collage. Not for the first time I am inspired. Watch out for a crazy collage!

  34. A super page Susi!!!
    I love your fun process and recycling here, and your happy collage!! Very cool :-)
    Happy Sunday, sendind you Love and Bises in French! :)
