2356 ○○○ ANGELS

A new topic at MOO MANIA & MORE


I have a digital/Hybrid spread in one of my Altered Books for this theme. The background is handmade, the angel/girl and text is added digital. I created the background last summer - with lavender in mind - Summer is my second favourite  season , so I will link to Elizabeth's " My favourite season - OR- 'Tis the season " over at

This is my original handmade background and I am not sure  how it will progress ...we will see.
 Hope to see you at the challenges! 



  1. This is incredible, Susi. I simply adore the darling young angel. She is beautiful and I absolutely adore her. The lavender reminds me of a napkin I have. Both sides of the page is beautiful, including the dragonfly and of course your sewing, which I LOVE. Once again, I am thrilled you are so supportive of my theme at Art Journal Journey. I appreciate you.

    I sincerely hope Liyongo is still doing well. Let's hope this isn't temporary and the doctor has put your beloved on the path to recovery.

  2. Beautiful original pages Susi and I love the digital additions to fit the theme.

  3. Love, love, love you lavender background Susi - I love lavender, and I have just started picking this years crop. Your Angel looks so pensive there among the lavender!
    I do hope you are loving on Liyongo and that he is comfortable.

  4. Was für ein wundervolles Werk, liebe Susi. Der sommerliche Lavendel-Hintergrund schaut traumhaft schön aus und der goldige Engel passt perfekt dazu und schaut zauberhaft aus.

    Herzliche Grüße

  5. LOVE your digitally enhanced spread, Susi - the background is amazing but the angel is just something else... reminds me of U2's Far Away so Close... her expression is wonderful.

  6. That's a gorgeous background. Just enough purple for me. But I love the details in it. And how that lovely little angel girl pops right off the background. She is the angel of nice weather-and not for all the cold. Hope your day is going well and it is not too snowy or cold. Hugs-Erika

  7. Schon immer habe ich Engel geliebt und dieser ist besonders schön...und wie gut er sich auch vorm sommerlichen Lavendel macht! Wieder ganz besonders gelungene Journalseiten, liebe Susi!

    Have a good day.

    Sending you big hugs my friend! Jackie xx

  10. A beautiful, and so lovely spread, my dear Susi. One of my favorite colors, and the angel child, too- She is gorgeous with her amazing wings, on your so wonderful background, looking or reminding me a bit of lovely paper napkins .
    Sending you warm hugs, and hopes my friend . Dorthe xoxoxoxoxo

  11. The background is outstanding, Susi! It is the perfect setting for that beautiful little angel and the lovely quote.
    Thinking of you and Liyongo, and sending you hugs :) Chris

  12. Lavender will always make me happy, so I love this page - both the background awaiting further mixed media, and with the digi alterations - your angel is very sweet.

  14. This is lovely Susi!! Lavender makes most everyone smile! I like the washed look with it's faded text and great tears and seams! Beautiful lay-out~ hugs, karen o

  15. Such a sweet piece Susi. Your background is delightful too :D)

  16. Susi this is stunning, so refreshing to see something non Christmas. Your hand created background is so calming like Lavender itself. Your so clever with these hybrids.

  18. Beautiful background Susi, the lavender colour evoked a wintry scene for me with shards of ice hanging down. I love the digital elements you added to it xxx

  19. What a beautiful spread, Susi - and a visual treat at this time of the year. That lavender is lovely!

  20. Eine wundervolle Hintergrundseite! Für mich scheint sie bereits fast fertig zu sein, bin neugierig, was da noch draufkommt. Deine digitale Version ist sehr schön - dieser Engel ist außergewöhnlich (weil nicht blond :) und hat einen originellen Gesichtsausdruck)!
    Sei lieb gegrüßt, Rike

  21. This is a beautiful soft-coloured piece, like a warm quiet summer evening.
    The digital angel has wandered in and is thinking "This is a lovely world, I might stay for a bit".

  23. Beautiful, I hope you are having a very happy December xx
