I have a spread today.
It's also meant for our POLKA DOTs
topic at Moo Mania & More.

HAPPY T-DAY dear girls at  T-S-F-T     

A breakfast with me?
Warm millet gruel with fruits and cacao nibs.
And green tea jasmin.

Much LOVE from


  1. I like your polka dot/having fun art. The colors are lovely. I've never had millet but have enjoyed some of the hot cereals -oatmeal,cream of wheat, cream of rice, and malt-o-meal. Perfect on a chilly/rainy day like today. The tea pot and tea cup are pretty! Happy T Day :)

  2. Hello my heart!
    Like these, happy for a new day!
    What a beautiful, happy page full of
    Life, and those polka dots fit well in the decoration of the page, with that texture of
    cloth, those paper cuts, those numbers, it looks great, you're really a
    Artist, you have a lot of inspiration and creativity.
    How well you feed and take care of your health very well congratulations!
    Love Liyongo that my Lord be benevolent with him and give you much love!

    Strong hugs❤❤

  3. A wonderful spread Susi, super layers of interesting thing to draw the eye to look closer. I can see that it was fun to make.
    Your warm breakfast looks delicious, we have a northern saying where I live for this kind of breakfast....'comfort food'.... good to eat and a good way to start the day.
    Happy T day wishes Susi.

  4. What a lovely page, Susi!!! Beautiful colour combinations and great inspiration. I love the threads you used. Hugs, my friend.

  5. Oh what a gorgeous journal spread Susi! I love the colors, and your addition of the polka dots- brilliant!Your art is such inspiration. Would love that breakfast too:) Happy T day!

  6. I need to make a big pot of cereal so I can scoop out bits for my breakfast (and then heat it up). I am getting tired of my smoothies, but I am not very creative at 5:30 and having to rush to get ready for work. Your gruel looks so yummy to me. And I love the happy polka dot page for sure. You used lots of kind of dots all over. Who does love polka dots? Happy T day Susi! Hugs-Erika

  7. Lovely spread and a healthy looking breakfast!

  8. These pages sing fun, happiness and creativity Susi. I love the colours, the bold stamped numbers and the polka dots, it all came together beautifully. Enjoy the week xxx

  9. eine bluse mit so einem türkisen punktmuster hätt ich auch zu gerne! da ist man doch automatisch gut gelaunt! klasse journaling mit vielen tollen details. hab eine schöne woche:) lg, johanna

  10. I love this beauty you created for both AJJ and MM&M. It's my kind of art with torn edges and lots of unique visuals. I love how you have also added fabric and strings for visual interest. This is a great spread, dear friend. You are so creative, and I love that you shared it with lots of people at Art Journal Journey, too.

    I love the tea set you used. What fun it must have been to see the beautiful image in the bottom of the cup, too. Thanks for sharing it with us for T this Tuesday. And thank you again for the incredibly beautiful bird. I plan to frame it, dear.

  11. Fabulous page and your gorgeous colours and oh all those goodies

  12. What a gorgeous spread Susi! It certainly looks like you had fun!

  17. Polka dots scream Spring to me. I love the colors of your spread. Your teacup and teapot are adorable and breakfast looks yummy. Happy T Day

  18. Great spread, Susi - love the contrast, the collage and the colours, too. You always create fab spreads!
    I'm not sure I'd like Jasmine green tea, but I may well be surprised...I do prefer my homemade muesli, though.

  19. Such a beautiful journal spread! I love how you incorporated all the polka dots and the papers and images work beautifully together 😁. The colours are perfect! Wishing you a very happy T Day dear Susi! J 😊 x

  20. I really like your journal page and the colours you’ve used with the polka dots.
    I’m not a fan of fruit teas although I used to love the German freeze dried lemon tea.
    Happy Tday

  21. I like polka dots a lot. Your pages are so filled with spring and happiness. Breakfast looks good. I need to get my exercise in first, then I'd be happy to join you.

  22. Lovely artwork and the food looks delicious. Happy T-Day!

  23. Your Jasmin Tea sounds perfect! And I love all the pattern on your art journal page. That close up photo with the punchinella and the fabric frays is beautifully textured. Love it!
    Happy Tea Day,

  24. A lovely spread Susi, love all the layers and gorgeous colour combo, there really is a lot of interest here and the added threads give a fun feel to it.
    Breakfast sound nourishing, is it similar to our porridge oats?

  25. That spread of pages looks so lovely. I love the polka dots, and the colours. And also that little ATC on the right hand page (well, it is probably not meant to be an ATC but that is what it looks like to me and I like it a lot)
    Your breakfast looks yummy. Three times a week i go to the gym before breakfast and my hubby cooks porridge for me, which is ready when I get home. Isn't he good!
    I have cooked millet before but never with milk. Ping! Another idea...
    Happy T-Day,

  26. Now I can see the size of your journal, I often wonder how big it is. I really need to try and downsize mine but find it difficult to play in anything less than an A4 at the moment. Love those colours with the black, clever way to introduce those polka dots too. I could do with a fun journal play day...
    T Day Hugs Tracey xx

    1. Thank you (((Susi))) I know those words are hard to find... I feel the same but I know your thoughts and kindness regarding Bonita are so heartfelt. Thank you again. I miss her so much :(
      I have had trouble with the internet over the weekend having had a new mobile it locked me out of my accounts whilst setting everything up verifying accounts etc.. A head ache I could have done without but I think it has been sorted now.
      Thank you again for your art & friendship xx
