2308 >>>>>> FOLLOW YOUR ARROW....


ARROWS / Pfleile
our new theme for this fortnight over at the 
challenge blog.

I share a spread in my blue journal for this theme
and I will link it to Gill's >INSPIRED BY< theme over at
as well. 

I was in the mood to use my trusty old distress ink pads to build a background and got inspired by a page I found at Pinterest .

Hope to see you at the challenge blogs!


  1. This is wonderful, Susi. I was so impressed, even more so than the inspiration piece. Your arrow is wonderful, but the left side of the spread is fun to see, too. I love the layers, the thread, the squares in the background. They all appealed to me. Although I am delighted you shared this with Art Journal Journey, I was equally inspired by this gorgeous spread, too. Thanks for this, dear friend and co-admin.

  2. Eine sehr schöne Doppelseite - sehr ausgewogen, auf jeder Seite etwas Rundes, etwas Eckiges und die Schrift auf beiden, so wird das alles ein harmonisches Ganzes, und das Auge wandert auf den Seiten hin und her - einfach gesagt: Es gefällt mir sehr!
    Dein Pfeil gefällt mir auch besser als der vom Inspirationslink.

  12. I love your colourful and inky page Susi. It is a super theme.
    Maybe not a good idea for me to follow every arrow I may see , as I do like to know where I would end up. But an adventure now and again would be a good idea.

  31. Distress ink are my favorite!! And wow what a gread spread you made with them!!

  32. Wonderful spread, Susi! I love the bright colors and the layout. You have a great eye (or training) for placing things in a pleasing manner.

  33. Liebe Susi,
    ich weiß, ich wiederhole mich, aber es drängt mich jedesmal, wirklich das in Worte zu fassen, was ich auf den ersten Blick fühle, wenn ich eines Deiner Werke sehe. Und es ist immer ein: Wow!!!, so ein wundervolles Bild. So stimmig und ausdrucksstark!
    Natürlich musste ich an den Kompass von Jack Sparrow denken, der ja auch immer dahin zeigt, wo Jacks größte Begehrlichkeiten zu finden sind. Aber Dein Kompass ist besser. Er zeigt nicht plump in eine Richtung, sondern lädt zum Innehalten ein.
    Ich wünsche Dir einen wunderschönen Tag.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  34. Your spread page is really so so so gorgeous Susi!! I love it and the colours are fantastique!! Very happy page!! Congrats!!
