2318 ♥ ♥ ♥ Happy weekend ♥ ♥ ♥

is the lovely theme Pearshaped Chris
hosts at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY this July.

I have a spread for this theme to share:

I have a little more to paint 

And some garden photos for 
Wolfgang's and Loretta's

an update of the raised bed which was proudly presented HERE.

The first hand-picked radishes were just so yummie!
 The sunflower bed makes us just happy!
The dahlias bloom quite nice.
 Miss Quinnie enjoys the sun nearly like a sunflower !

  1. What a fabulous double page journal spread Susi, paying homage to the mighty paint brush!! What would we do without this clever little tools?
    Your raised bed has really come on and well done on your first produce.
    How happy those Sunflowers are & Miss Quinnie looks like she is enjoying the warmth just as much. A lovely post, Thank you for sharing.
    Happy weekend hugs Tracey xx

  4. another brilliant art journal page. I love the colour combinations and the arty brushes! Your sunflowers are glorious . Hugs to Miss Quinnie xx

  5. Eine tolle Seite, ich bin mal wieder von den Farben begeistert. Mal wieder wunderschön und stimmig. Dem Hund geht's gut, die Blumen blühen... was will man mehr?
    Lass es dir gut gehen und geniesse das Wochenende

  6. This is such a fun and happy page Susi! I love your other pages too, with nature. Your last flowers were so beautiful. Your garden too. Lots of flowers! We have another lovely sunny weekend here. I hope the weather is nice where you live too. Hugs, Lenie

  7. This spread is stunning, Susi and if you painted it, you did an amazing job - beautiful! Love the raised bed now it's planted and the sunflowers are so beautiful. I bet that radish was tasty, too - I keep forgetting to plant my seeds!!! But I'm harvesting tomatoes at the moment and really enjoying much more tasty than shop bought ones :-)

    Have a lovely weekend.

  8. A fabulous journal spread Susi, the paintbrushes look so real, you could pick them up and add more colours to your already colourful page.
    I loved the photos in your garden, the radish looks fresh and delicious. Miss Quinnie looks very relaxed enjoying the sun.
    Have a good weekend.

  9. I like your paintbrushes and the accompanying quote :) The raised bed yields a good crop. Your sunflowers make me happy just looking at them. Mine are fall-bloomers, so yours are a treat.

  10. Those paint brushes! I just love this spread and all it's delightful color.
    Your raised bed is looking good and I bet those radishes were delicious. So glad you shared the update.

    Happy Sunday,

  16. I love seeing your paintbrushes. If you had used hold primary colors I would wonder if you did this or Mr Piggy- ha ha ha. No really this is gorgeous and what a nice planter. Your yard must be looking beautiful. And yahoo. A fresh radish. I wonder what will be ready to pick in my garden when I get home. Quinnie sure likes the sun as my girl does too. Hope it’s been a great week. Hugs erika

  17. Dein Hochbeet gefällt mir sehr, sieht toll aus. Und Du hast vollkommen recht, Sonnenblumen machen glücklich. Bei mir wurden die Sonnenblumen von den Vögeln ausgesät. Ich freue mich sehr darüber.
    Liebe Grüße

  18. Such a wonderful journal page!

  19. Oooh Susi, your journal page is wonderful, so bold and confident. I love your garden photo's too - sunflowers are just so happy aren't they. Miss Quinnie looks very happy there in the sunshine. Have a very happy week, Sue xx

  20. Spitzenmäßig dein Pinselbild!
    Ah, und du hast auch ganz viel Sonnenblumen!Sie dürfen einfach nicht fehlen, machen immer sofort gute Laune, wenn man sie anschaut!... und dem Hundchen wirds zu warm sein, oder?
    LG Ulrike

  21. I am in LOVE with the paintbrush spread. It is fabulous. I simply adore the beautiful colors. I'm glad you shared it at Art Journal Journey, too.

    Your raised bed is producing beautifully, and the sunflowers are awesome.

    Miss Quinnie looks so good lying there in the sun.

  22. Liebe Susi,
    Deine ersten beiden Bilder beeindrucken mich wieder, die Kombination der Farben, der Stil, ja die gesamte Komposition spricht mich direkt an. Wundervoll!
    Die Gartenbilder sind auch sehr schön und Miss Quinnie scheint sich genau so gerne zu sonnen wie unser Snuppi.
    Ich wünsche Dir einen wundervollen Start in die Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  23. Wow Susi! What a fabulous spread this is and perfect for Art For Arts Sake! Love how you have made your paint really work for you here! Your garden looks wonderful! Your radish looks to be quite big one and aren't they so good straight from the garden? I love your Sunflowers bed - it would make me happy too! Miss Quinnie looks very relaxed! Enjoy your week! Hugs, Chrisx

  25. What a yummy spread, Susi! (The colors make me think of yummy cool sherbet.) I'm amazed at how you got the stamped brushes to stand out so well against the same color background. I need to study this one ;-) Hugs, Eileen
