Post No. 2125 *** Live in the Moment ...

Lebe im Moment und mach es so schön, dass es sich lohnt, sich zu erinnern.

A loose page for my Art Journal Folder meant for Gill's Elegance & Grunge theme over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY.
Eine Einzelseite für meinen Art Journal Ordner gedacht für Gill's "Elegant & Schäbig " Thema bei Art Journal Journey.

I used the outer shell of a Physalis for creating the flower on my collage.
Ich verarbeitet die Hülle einer Physalis/Kapstachelbeere zur Blume auf meiner Collage. 

Thanks for your visit! / Danke für Deinen Besuch!



  1. Such a lovely sentiment and words to live by Susi. This is absolutely gorgeous - I don't know how you managed to create something so beautiful and with so many lovely details (and stitchwork!) when you are so busy :)
    The gardening work here is mainly moving gravel and earth at present - but it's slow work as it been so very hot again :(
    Hope you enjoy the rest of your busy week and are able to fit in some art time for yourself too.
    Liebe Grüße Gill xx

  2. Gorgeous page Susi. I love the white and tans. It makes it really elegant. And your layering is just beautiful too. Hope you are enjoying your night of being a driver and enjoy your holiday weekend too. :) Hugs-Erika

  3. ich bin wieder mal sehr von deiner materialfülle in dieser collage angetan - die idee mit physalisblättern ist klasse und ich mag das tag-ding (wie kann deine maschine da durch nähen!?) und die buchschnipsel, die noten, die wellpappe, den text - einfach alles!!

  7. OH MY. I have fallen in love. This is one of the most awesome pieces I have seen in months. Seriously. Other than the ballet slippers, this is my favorite. I think it's the grunge factor or maybe the mixed media aspect. It could be the quote or the sewing. I guess it could also be that tag or the flower. Oh gosh, I guess it's everything. I'm simply in LOVE with this spread! Have I mentioned how much I love it?

  8. Oh Susi - this is so, so beautiful! Hugs, Chrisx
