2248 - Each ATC is an adventure....

 I started to take part in  THINK MONDAY THINK ATC  this year and made an ATC for this week's theme of  Banderole(n) - I used my teabag - covers and other little things I recycled from my teabags and came up with this:

 It was a big fun - it's my fourth ATC for this year and this weekly ATC challenge starts to be a little weekly adventure for me that I really enjoy. Here are the four ATCs I have made so far in 2018.

The material I have used to create the ATC  lay already on my table. I decided to make something for  this month's 
New Year: New Adventure theme at Art Journal Journey as well. ERIKA hosts her theme with such enthusiasm this month . It is amazing how many entries are already linked and the best is that you still have another week to link up with your art adventure.

And BIG THANKS to all of you who have joined us already.
Enjoy what's left of your week!

  1. Hallo Susi,
    ich bin begeistert, wie das Thema umgesetzt wird. In diese Richtung habe ich bei der Wahl des Themas gar nicht gedacht. Sehr inspieriend. Ich freue mich sehr das Du dabei bist und es als Abenteuer siehst zum Wochenbeginn ein ATC zu gestalten. Die Herausforderung nimmt Du hoffentlich ncoh viele male an :-)
    Auf bald,

  2. Liebe Susi
    wahrlich "abenteuerlich" deine Seite,
    soviel Materialmix, ich staune immer wieder
    über diese Vielseitigkeit.
    Ich wünsche dir noch einen gemütlichen Tag.
    Lg Sadie

  3. Fabulous ATC's Susi - I love what you're doing with the teabag ephemera in the one and on the journal page. Wonderful!!!

  4. Your art is always so awesome and love seeing what you have created next-loving your atc's I bet that is fun since they are smaller

  5. Beautiful ATCs, so precious and small!

  6. Brilliant, Susi - didn't know TMTATC was going again... might just have to wonder over there! Love the journal page :-)

  7. Wow your AtC's are gorgious , little artworks, when one day you feel like exchange one with me, please tell me!! But mine are always stamped, I'm not an artist as you are!!

    Have fun!!

  8. Wie genial ist das denn??? Bin hellauf begeistert, liebe Susi.

    Hab noch einen schönen Rest-Donnerstag

  9. Die ATCs sind alle sehr schön geworden, aber ich glaube, die von dieser Woche gefällt mir am besten. Viel Spaß weiterhin mit dem Challenge, liebe Susi!
    Viele liebe Grüße

  10. ich hab ein wenig über die ATC's gelesen und finde diese projekte sehr spannend. vielleicht mach ich auch mal solche kleinen teile. ich hab früher schon mal spielkarten verarbeitet, das hat auch spaß gemacht.
    deine teebeutel atc ist super, ich mag die farben und die struktur sehr gerne. und im gelbgrundigen sketchbook macht es sich auch sehr gut.
    liebe grüße

  11. Das ist ein super tolles ATC ich wusste gar nicht das es die Callange noch gibt :)

  12. I've actually made some ATCs, so I feel I can better appreciate what you've accomplished here. I love the seasonal connection :)

  13. Its a fantastic ATC using your tea bag additions.It was also good to see January's altogether.
    I love the journal spread you created as well adding your latest piece to the page.
    Yvonne xx

  14. A great ATC and I love how you incorporated it into the journal page along with the other tea bag labels.
    Avril xx

  15. Wow Susi! What a lovely ATC - love seeing the others all together too! What a great idea to use up the pieces on your desk to add to your journal page! Hugs, Chrisx

  16. Each view is a journey and I sure love your colour combos along with fabulous [aNNie]

  17. Hi Susi your journal page is amazing ,love it ,well done xx

  18. Nice ATC's. They are fun to make and yours are great. :) Once I get past this month at AJJ and I am thinking about joining in for some something different. And it was certainly a cool adventure adding it to your journal page was such good idea. It makes a great page! I especially like the tape arrow. :) Happy almost FRiday and glad to see you over at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

  19. Brilliant Susi....isn’t there anything you can’t do?! I’ve not forgotten about the link up, promise I’ll get around to it ;)
    Donna xx

  20. I wish I had known about this challenge, because I would love to start making ATCs again. I love them all, but this one spoke to me with the tea inspired art. It's also perfect for Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear co-administrator.

  21. I love these! Each one is so unique. I love the one with teabags.

  22. Oh wie kreativ! Ich hatte noch nie von ATC gehört - danke füs Weiterbilden - ... aber naja, ich hab ja auch kaum Zeit für solche Dinge. Und fange am liebsten erst bei 23x25cm (mein Collagenformat) an, kleine Büchlein hab ich hier etliche liegen und schrecke immer wieder davor zurück, diese zu gestalten...
    Sonne am Freitag und ein schönes WE wünscht Dir

  23. It looks like you are enjoying your new ATC adventure! I love all the layering and tea related elements that you used for this ATC and the journal pages that you created to showcase it are spectacular 😁. Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend dear Susi! J 😊

  24. More beauty to see from you Susi, I love ATC's but have found recently my mojo for them has gone, I think it is because I am working on a much larger scale at present. I love your layering and use of teabags oh my!! I really must start introducing them into my designs.
    Fabulous idea to add your ATC to your page.. You may have spurned me on to get back into my ATC's..
    Have a wonderful weekend Tracey xx

  25. What brilliant work Susi - love your ATC's, and to incorporate it into you spread is fabulous

  26. The ATCs for TMTA are fun, aren't they? I make ROLOs. Love your card and journal spread! xoxoxoxo

  27. ach, du machst einfach aus allem was, wie schön! auch klasse, wie du TMTA wieder mitbelebst! (könnte ich mich doch nur aufraffen...)
    mein Abenteuer ist zur zeit der dachboden *g*... aber wenn ich´s nicht vergesse, werde ich meine Nähereien dazu auch nächste Woche verlinken...
    hab ein schönes WE, liebe Susi - grüße von johanna

  28. Wonderful ATCs Susi, and I love your AJ page too!
    Happy Friday!
    Alison xox

  29. Liebe Susi,
    einfach genial so ein super tolles ATC, bin sehr beeindruckt
    Du machst es grandios !!!! Viel Spaß weiterhin mit dem Challenge
    Ganz liebe Grüße und ein schönes WE wünsche ich Dir

  30. Your ATCs look so good with all of your wonderful textures and paint. ATCs are so much fun. And you feel productive with art since they're so small and you can do so many quickly rather than a big journal page. LOL. Happy weekend!

  31. Great ATC and I do love the big snowmanhead ..great all
    I made atc many years ago and made 100 of swaps all over the world

  32. Love this, great recycle art!

  33. Love your marvelous ATCs, Susi. I used to do ATCs so I know how difficult it is to get all you want into that small space. You did great.

  34. Susi, I must join the choir. I love those ATCs!! And the journal page!!
    Wishing you a very happy weekend.
    Hugs, Chris

  35. Je länger ich schaue, finde ich immer wieder neue Details - und großartig, wie du die ATC auch noch ins Artjournal eingebaut hast!
    Schönes Wochenende! Rike oxo

  36. Susi, I love your atc's!! This last one especially. And I really love your journal spread you made with this atc- you are so intuitive with your journal pages, you keep me in awe!
    Happy weekend and big hugs,Jackie xx

  37. Wowww dein ATC ist sowas von schön. Da gibt es viel zu entdecken. Toll finde ich auch, dass du es auf eine Journalseite verarbeitet hast. Einfach klasse auch die anderen ATCs.
    LG Carola

  38. Susi, oh my , you create so many many things, always busy I guess :-) this looks amazing, the 4 tags so sweet and the one from this week, fantastic .
    Dorthe, xx

  39. Love, love this post... from the ATC to the page - it all just makes me happy. I love the tiny creative space of an ATC and how it can be so full of layers of joy, and then the happy colours of the page... it's all put a big smile on my face, thank you.
    Alison x

  40. Your work is always so fabulous and inspiring. Amazing shots here! Hugs, Autumn

  41. I believe I've only made one or two ATCs in my life, but I'm planning to make more in the future to try out some new techniques. Yours are fun and artsy.
