2266 ○○○○ BUDGIES

I took a calendar image of two  lovely budgies and glued them onto a  background from long ago, waiting for it's completion in one of my Altered Books. The text is written on tissue with the brush pen and glued to the background.

 It's meant for Rike's amazing theme of Animals A-Z over at
Art Journal Journey, where we have a blast this month again !
 It has been fun learning about so many animals and all the different journal pages! So thanks for joining in and a big THANK you to  Rike
Don't forget to visit on Thursday again when the new AJJ month starts with a new topic.

And for the lovely Gals over at TSFT 
a healthy, fresh made smoothie today!



  1. Oh that smoothie looks very delicious. Thank you.
    Your budgie page is really nice. The quote is fantastic. I had never heard that but it is very true.
    Happy T-Day,

  2. ja, manchmal muss ein hintergrund einfach warten können - hat sich gelohnt... der spruch ist auch so schön, weil wahr.
    liebe grüße, johanna

  9. Love the parakeets :) Pretty birds. Daddy had one when I was little that was very sociable. That smoothie color looks refreshing! Happy T Tuesday

  10. I love your sweet budgies! We had them growing up and they could be fun. We taught one to speak some French believe it or not, and my Mom got another one to have a sip of wine from a shot glass. We'd always let them out of their cages a bit every day...
    your smoothie looks very refreshing but I'm cold so I'll stick with my hot tea for now:) Happy T day!

  20. Susi,

    That comment on relationships is so true!!! I love the colours you have used in your background - the budgies look superb on it.
    Have an art-filled week!

  21. Hi Susi oh boy i love this page the saying is perfect and the birds so pretty,what an awesome job you have done with this,well done my friend and i love smoothies too xx

  22. The budgies look amazing on your background. And the quote is so true. It has been a great month of animals. Your smoothie looks delicious too. After my chicken lunch on my T day post I have gone back to healthy lunches and dinners. Your smoothie looks like it fits that healthy bill for sure. Hope it was a great T day. Hugs--Erika

  25. Liebe Susi

    auch sehr gut.
    Ich wünsche dir einen wundershcönen Tag.
    LG Sadie

  26. Ein wunderschönes Zitat und ein wunderschönes Blau im Hintergrund, harmoniert so gut zu den Wellensittichen! Der Hintergrund hat genau auf diese Komposition gewartet :)
    Dein Smoothie sieht köstlich aus!
    Ich bin begeistert über die vielen schönen Beiträge diesen Monat und freute mich sehr, Hostess sein zu dürfen! ♥♥♥
    Alles Liebe, Rike

  27. what a great quote on your page..my gran used to have a budgie called Joey and it used to fly around the room and land in my mums curly hair and peck her..she didnt like it:)

  28. Liebe Susi,
    Du hast die beiden Vögel so gut aufgeklebt, dass ich das nicht sehen kann, einfach perfekt. Der Hintergrund ist für die beiden Gefiederten wie gemacht. Das ist es wohl auch, was ein Kunstverständnis ausmacht, dass man die Geduld hat ein begonnenes Werk so lange liegen zu lassen, bis die zündende Idee zu dessen Vollendung kommt.
    Dein Werk gefällt mir wieder ausgesprochen gut.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  29. Brilliant spread, love the budgies and the quote - so true, I really like all the sayings you incorporate in your work! The background is so full of layers and texture, and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who makes backgrounds, hoping they'll come in useful some day LOL! The smoothie looks delish - off to make my own now ;D

  30. I love the budgies on your beautiful spread, they reminded me of my budgie Joey that I had when I was a child.
    xxx Hazel.

  31. Your pretty blue budgie page is wonderful! It brings back lots of memories for me as when I was little we use to have a blue budgie just like those on your page called George 😁. He was such a delight and quite a character ...lol 😉. The background you created and the quote is marvellous too. Your smoothie looks so fresh and delicious - yum! Thanks for the memories and wishing you a very happy T Day! J 😊

  32. I love the budgies and those wise words Susi! xx

  33. was für eine schöne Seite liebe Susi,
    und das Zitat gefällt mir auch sehr...
    Liebe Grüße

  34. I love Budgies and I love this page! Your smoothie looks good! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx

  35. OMG was für ein wundervolles Werk mit so einem bedeutsamen Spruch, traumhaft schön, liebe Susi.

    Herzliche Grüße

  36. I am back from Missouri, where I spent two very sleepless days and nights. After returning, I crashed. Finally awake and drinking my third coffee of the day, playing catch up and am thrilled to see you shared your T Tuesday experience. At first I couldn't figure out what was in the basket in back, then realized it was for your compost pile. Good for you, dear friend. And of course, the smoothie would be great, too.

    I really, really, really enjoyed your AJJ entry, too. It is so beautiful. Those budgies are beautiful and, although I've never seen one, yours are fabulous. I was thrilled you shared them at Art Journal Journey, too.

    Thank you for your contribution to T Tuesday this week, dear friend and wonderful AJJ co-admin. SO sorry I'm late visiting.

  37. Absolutely beautiful Budgies and such a wonderful quote Susi! I could not agree more!
    hugs & love,
    Jackie xo

  38. Beautiful birds and lovely (and true) quote - I really adore this spread.
    Gill xx

  39. Beautiful spread, Susi! I love the background and the quote. I've never done an altered book. I'm getting very tempted seeing what some of the T-ladies do with old unwanted books.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  40. Hi Susi, It look like I am really behind for T day this week. Your birds are so pretty and I love the quote. I have never heard this before but it is certainly true.
    And that smoothie looks yummmy.
    Happy Belated T day,

  41. So pretty! I love these little blue birds and the sentiment is perfect. Really cute!

  42. Such a gorgeous page spread from your altered book, dear Susi! You created such a gorgeous background! The sweet birds and wonderful text on tissue paper are the beautiful finishing touches. Big hugs xx
