Post. No 2178 - Spread your wings...

 At Moo Mania & More we have still the BIRDS theme -
 so I have a bird themed spread  to show.

I will also link it to the new lovely "Colour In My World" theme Yvonne is hosting over at

Art Journal Journey

This spread is part of  a new handbound Junk Journal I made.

I will link this journal to the new Mini Album Makers Challenge

And as a used "teabag" is involved
I will link this post to Bleubeard and Elizabeth  next Tuesday,
 where we are always made welcome with a drink related post.
  I even stitched on this teabag

so it's a reminder for our

Heute zeige ich eine Mixed Media Doppelseite, die sich in einem von mir gewerkeltem  Junk Journal befindet, ein bestickter Teebeutel wurde auf dem  Cover verarbeitet. Verlinkt wird zu allen im Text benannten Challenges.


  1. Wow, so viel Fantasie. Ich bin begeistert.
    Und der kleine Vögel ist absolut zauberhaft.
    Viele Grüße aus Belgien

  2. I love playing with teabags and this is a great idea Susi, thanks! Love your work!!

  3. I left you a long message, then went back to get a longer look at the mini book. When I did, I lost the comment. DUH.

    I simply adore the bird and the yellow and purple you chose. It's a gem and quite AJJ worthy, too.

    I am considering entering that mini book challenge. There are so many wonderful examples, I was blown away. Yours is fabulous, and I simply adore the stitching on the tea bag. I also loved the picture of the stitched tea bag in front of your tea bag storage area. You drink a LOT of tea, don't you?

    Thanks for sharing the art and your beautiful tea bag, as well as that wonderful mini-book with us for T when Tuesday rolls around.

  4. Liebe Susi
    wie wunderschön die Vogelseite und das andere mit dem Teebeutel verarbeitung und das Minibook ist ja super geworden herrlich alles mal wieder diese Hintergrundgestaltung wunderschön ausgedacht!
    Es fasziniert mich immer aufs neue wenn ich deine Journals sehe und die Books!
    Schönen Sonnatg wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  5. das gefällt mir ja wieder mal GANZ GANZ besonders gut!! wunderbares büchlein, all die Details ein Augenschmaus!
    schöne Woche, Susi ♥

  6. A WOW of a post today Susi, first of all the journal spread is gorgeous. Wonderful background colours and the bird looks beautiful.
    Its a fantastic mini album, it is full of so many great details, it must have taken you hours to make. Its a super quote you added to the cover.
    Thank you for the glimpse of your tea bag drawer, it looks like you have many delicious flavours to drink. I really love how you include the bags in your art.
    So, early T day wishes for Tuesday, when it gets here.
    For today I hope you have a lovely Sunday.
    Yvonne xx

  7. An amazing project and so cleverly created. You and your teabags are amazing...I am a tea addict so have many tea bags, do you want them posted...hehe.xx [aNNie]

  8. What a great journal. Love the theme you chose (I also do a lot with bird themes), the use of teabags and your own art work. Great combination for a lovely journal. Thanks for entering at the new Mini Album Makers Challenge Blog.

  9. Beautiful details, love this project:)

  10. I have never thought to use the actual bag before... have used tea for staining and aging paper... Love what you have created here

  11. Great little album! I love the string on the cover! Love all the details! I'm a pure beginner, so if you have any tips on binding please let me know! Hugs! Sara Emily

  12. You are such a cleaver artist. These are fabulous!

  13. What a fun page and a great bird book!

  14. A wonderful journal and spread Susi! I love the bird and textures!
    Alison xx

  15. Wow. So much to show us today Susi. :) The bird piece is amazing. I think leaving the bird black and white was really smart. It pops right off the page. And that's a cool mini-book. I like the circle thread. It gives cool texture. And then even a tea bag too! Wow. You have been busy in between the fence I guess. Hope it is looking good and you are well. Hugs-Erika

  16. Susi, your spread is beautiful and has such lovely textures to it and I love your junk journal cover, again the textures are lovely. Although I have never used a teabag in this way, I think you might have just inspired me to have a go! Great sentiment on the cover too!

    Thanks so much for joining in our first challenge at Mini Album Makers! Anne xx

  17. Just beautiful, Susi! Love your bird on the mini book and the great tea bag! Kisses, my friend.

  18. wow,eine tolle seite mit dem vogel,auch tolle farben.
    dein neues book sieht mega klasse aus,ich bin immer wieder aufs neue fazierniert von deinen wunderschönen arbeiten.

    einen schönen sonntag noch,liebe susi.

    schöne grüße jenny

  19. Kreativ gestaltete Seite liebe Susi, das mit dem Faden auf Seidenpapier ist eine super Idee. Deine neue Farbkombi vo Gelb und Lila gefällt mir auch. Wieder Alles sehr inspirierend.
    Liebe Grüße

  20. Hi Susi,

    Thank you for your kind comment of my art journal post. You're absolutely correct. The assignment was to do a 5-minute sketch loosely following Picasso's drawing, Head, 1946, using it as a reference image.

    Love your junk journal!

  21. Oh how I love your junk journals Susi, they always make me smile with their fabulousness
    Donna xx

  22. Such a beautiful page! The colours are perfect and along with your bird create a lovely harmony and balance on your page 😁. It makes a lovely addition to your Mini Album too and I love the pretty stitching on the teabag! Happy new start to the week dear Susi and sending you early Happy T Day wishes! J 😊
    p.s. Sorry I haven't been around we have family visiting for the week so I haven't found time to blog or visit anyone and I posted early for T Day too as I'm not sure when I'll find time this week 😁. It looks like I'm going to have to try and catch up with people's blogs before bedtime aslong as I'm not to tired! Happy September! J x

  23. Ich bin sehr begeistert, ein wunderschönes Büchlein ;)

  24. Great art as always Susi, fabulous pages and absolutely delightful journal, love them both xxx

  25. Deine Teebeutel-Stickereien sind einfach wundervoll! Überhaupt dein ganzes Junk-Journal! Ich mag es, wie beim Ausbreiten der Seite die Aufforderung, selbiges mit den Flügeln zu tun, kommt.

    Liebe Grüße,

  26. Susi your creativity amazes me - love the embroidered tea bag!! Your journal page is gorgeous

  27. Oh this is wonderful Susie, love that great background and the wnderful bird imgae that takes central stage! A great looking junk journal and of course thanks so much for adding it to our new Mini Album Makers challenge!

    Just fabulous!

  32. Such a wonderful post filled with beautiful art, so varied and so You, Susi! I so love your style!Love that splat! At the end of the stitching on your journal, and the colors in the first one remind me a of a beautiful sunrise! Gorgeous all around!

  33. Such a wonderful journal. Love the bird. Soon the birds at my birdfeeder will be spreading their wings to fly to warmer places. I think I'll steal your art quote for my quote book. It's perfect. Have a Happy T Day

  34. Den Faden-Irrgarten auf deinem Buch finde ich so toll, und überhaupt, alles sieht super aus!
    Gestern wollte ich noch schreiben, da ist mir doch der PC abgestürzt, als ich mir dein Filmchen aufgerufen habe, jetzt traue ich mich nicht mehr.
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  35. oh what a really beautiful journal page with the bird-gorgeous colors! Your junk journal is amazing too and a super looking artsy page and quote. Happy T day too!

  36. Awesome junk journal! I love all the birds! Thanks for joining our FIRST challenge at Mini Album Makers.

  37. Liebe Susi,
    ich bewundere Deine Werke jedesmal, Deine kreativen Ideen und Deine Kunstfertigkeit. Die Idee, einen bestickten Teebeutel auf einem Cover zu verarbeiten, muss man erstmal haben. Ich kann nur wunderschön sagen.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  38. Susi lovely journal pages...Amazing what you do with tea bags! Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  39. Wow, every page is so eye catching and artful! You never fail to inspire me, sweet friend! I'm thrilled to bits that you've shared in our first challenge at Mini Album Makers with this beauty! Big hugs, Autumn

  40. The cover of your junk journal is wonderful, Susi. I love all the dimensional touches and the quote.

    You wrote that MISCHKULANZ is German for melange. That's the translation of mescolanza too. Isn't it interesting how similar the words are? English and German are Germanic tongues, but Spanish is a Romance language and melange (though we use it in English) is actually a French word.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  41. I love the little mini book! I've never heard of such a thing. Happy T Tuesday!

  42. A fabulous journal page Susi - your little bird is beautiful! Love that mini junk journal - I had hoped to join in with the new challenge but fear that time will run way from me! Happy T Day Chrisx

  43. Liebste Susi,

    Dein Büchlein ist megagenial und traumhaft schön geworden, Du kommst auf die besten Ideen, einfach irre.

    Und auch Deine Vogelkarte ist zauberhaft ...

    Herzliche Grüße
    von Anke
