2320 ART FOR ART'S SAKE in the Letter Journal

I'm once again joining the inspiring 
 Chris of Pear Shaped Crafting. She is our wonderful host this July  at Art Journal Journey and her amazing theme is Art for art's sake.

I have a Letter Journal spread to share where I started with scraps of a gelli printed paper and after a longer session of gluing down bits and pieces I finished it with some of my
stamps from LaBlanche and TH. I was inspired by Jenny who uses a lot of her lovely stamps just now at her pages again .

I added a TH stamped quote
  and that should remind you of our theme
ADD A QUOTE over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY as well.
I hope to see you at the different challenges !


  1. wow,was für eine traumhafte seite,ich freue mich das du auch mal wieder stempel benutzt hast,die sind doch klasse,hab ich recht ?!
    deine seiten sind so zart und feminin,das gefällt mir sehr,und die duftigen farben dazu,fantastisch,liebe susi.
    ich wünsch dir noch einen schönen abend.

    schöne grüße jenny

  2. Beautiful pages, happy Saturday!

  3. Wow wundervolle Komposition von schönen Stempeln und Schablonen. Auch die Farbkombi gefällt mir wieder sehr. Dieses schöne Gesicht liegt hier auch bei mir und ich sollte es wohl mal wieder einsetzen, ist schon dekorativ. Das Vogelmotiv mag ich auch sehr. Super Design wieder!
    Schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße

  4. Another truly beautiful art journal page.I love your combination of colours and all of the gorgeous stamping.what a great quote too! Xx

  5. The layers on this page are so beautiful! I love the transparency of the stamped images. I love it, Susi!

  6. I'm rubbish with stamps and stamping, so I would probably not be as brave as you. You have created a very beautiful and cohesive piece for Chris's theme, dear friend and co-admin. I love the calming cool colors and beauty of the various stamps you used to tell the story on the page. Its a great addition to Art Journal Journey.

  14. Beautiful page Susi - so much to see - I love it all :)
    Thats a great quote stamp too. I love LaBlanche stamps but haven't used them for ages - so I think you may have just inspired me to get them out and use them on my next AJJ page this month :)

  15. A beautiful spread Susi, those stamps look lovely. It has me thinking I have the one with the face or similar, I've never used it in ages.
    Hope you are having a good weekend.

  16. What a wonderful page Susi !! I love all those bits of scrap paper, and the colours are lovely, as well as the stamps. the quote is so cool, I love it! Great!
    I wish you a very nice evening, hugs and besotillos, Caty

  17. You always create such great texture in your pages Susi. This page has so many interesting elements. I am not sure which one(s) are my favorite. I am with you that at least the rain keeps it cooler, and at least here we need that rain so I am grateful that it is making my plants happy. Plus maybe this week I will get my studio cleaned as it really really needs it. Hope you have a great new week and have lots of art time. Hugs-Erika

  18. Liebe Susi,
    das ist wieder wunder, wunder schön. Am liebsten würde ich mal eine Ausstellung Deiner Werke besuchen, wahrscheinlich würde ich gar nicht mehr heraus finden...
    Ich wünsche Dir einen guten Start in die Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  19. Oh Susi, this too is so very beautiful- I love your spread. All,- the lovely collaged background, and the stamps on top, makes this so amazing.
