Hi, I'm Susi (aka froebelsternchen) living in the North of Austria.  I started my journey in Mixed Media Wonderland in 2003 with rubber stamping. Since this time I've become addicted to Mixed Media Art. My main focus - Art Journaling - gives me the freedom and all kinds of possibilities, playing and breaking the rules, in fact making my own. I love the complexity and depth of the backgrounds you can achieve in a multi-layered piece of art. I enjoy visiting other people's blogs, thus diving into foreign worlds of imagination and creativity. I’ve written my blog in English even though I’m Austrian,because I wanted to get in contact with bloggers from all around the world.
I don't think I have a particular style, I am quite eclectic and I love using different layers and textures. I enjoy living in the countryside after leaving Vienna in 2011. Where I live, here in the North of Austria, nature is really pure, this is the main character of the "Waldviertel" - so a botanical theme tends to show up in my work quite a lot. I love birds - especially owls, trees, flowers and all animals. I don't really plan my projects beforehand, I just tend to go with how I am feeling or thinking at the time.

The word STERNCHEN in
means littel star in German!

"froebel"sternchen I have chosen as my nickname many years ago because I loved to fold the froebel star out of paper as I was a child.

  2. I'm not sure how to contact you. Where it says "contact me" it's not an email and I think in Austrian?

    I hope you get this comment, as I take interest in the art journal challenges. I'm a tad confused about the rules. Is one is required to use a specific size paper/backround?
