2305 - INSPIRED BY MIA from Greece

Dear Mia!
Your wonderful package arrived here!

You made me just so happy!
Thank you dear friend!

Each single piece in this parcel makes my heart sing!

 Visit my friend Mia's lovely and inspiring blog:

And If you not follow her yet please do it!
She is just the loveliest artsy blogger girl I know!
And I was so proud to get a gift from her from GREECE.
It was so quick here in Austria!
I love Greece and I have the most beautiful memories of
Crete, Chios and Santorini.
I was so happy and decided to  instantly try out the watercolour pad Mia sent me and the first page now is
dedicated to Greece .....

 I will link the page to Gill's lovely
theme over at

Derwent Inktense pencils ,  felt-tipped pen for wording 
 on watercolour paper - 20 x 30 cm.


  1. What a great friend you have from Greece. It's a wonderful gift, and I know you will find a use for everything, including those postage stamps.

    Your painting of Greece reminds me of the pictures/images I got from a travel magazine. This is a perfect painting to celebrate Greece. Your painting is so inspiring, and it looks like you sat at an outdoor cafe and drew those famous buildings while sipping a cup of herbal tea. It's a perfect entry for Art Journal Journey!

  2. You make me soooo happy, Susi! Enjoy your goodies, my kind friend. Each one is selected especially for you. Thank you so much for participating in my 1st Blogaversary candy and I wish you always to be lucky!
    I LOVE Santorini and your page is FABULOUS!!!!!!! Thank you so much for dedicating this gorgeous creation to Greece.
    And my origins are from Crete, so I LLLOVE Crete!!!!
    Kisses, sweetie!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Ich bin absolut geflasht. Deine Werke gehören in eine Ausstellung, das ist schon mal sicher, einfach wunderschön und so stimmig, love it ♥

  4. What a lovely gift from a very generous friend, Susi!
