2267 - March is here....

and with the start of March there is also the start of a new theme over at 
This month the lovely Rosie from Rosie's Bastelwelt
is our host and she has chosen a very nice theme for this month.
○○○ S P R I N G ○○○ 

I have a spread in my Circle Junk Journal that I started as Rosie was hosting last year's June theme of Circles over at AJJ.

FRÜHLING means SPRING in German.
IN CONNECTION WITH YOU - is the meaning of  the words on the left side.

Just found text and images from flyers and 
some old book pages in the background.
It happens to be "Spring" as well at 
what a happy coincidence!

Tomorrow is  Elizabeth's 
Second look on th 2nd 
where we can share something from our blog 
that we showed previously.

I have chosen a posting from
last year at the beginning of March, find the post 
 as I shared two of my "sewing-fun" pieces.

I hope to meet you at the challenge blogs!
Always a pleasure for me to see your art and 
to visit your blogs!
A lovely start of March for all of you!
Thank you for visiting me!


  1. Your spring inspired art journal entry is beautiful. I adore the fact that you used magazine/flyer images and book pages. What a fabulous way to recycle and start this month at Art Journal Journey.

    What a great job you did on that journal cover and tissue holder as your second look this month. I am always delighted and amazed when I read that I have inspired you, because you inspire me more than you will ever know. Thanks for sharing these two beauties with us as a second look on the 2nd, and of course, thanks for this first journal page in March at Art Journal Journey, dear co-administrator.

  2. Was für ein genialer Post, liebe Susi.

    Hab noch einen schönen Donnerstag.

  6. Beautiful journal spread Susi, love the way you added all collage papers here.

  7. Das ist ein wunderschöner Frühlings-Beginn die Hand mit der kleinen Pflanze als Symbol für neues Wachstum! Rechts oben derjenige, der die Erde pflügt, um neuen Pflanzen einen Nährboden zu geben. Und links der Farn, der gerade seine Blätter entrollt - alles sprießt.
    Dein "second look" passt auch so gut zum Frühlingsthema, sehr schöne Näharbeit in absoluten Frühlingsfarben!
    Sei ganz lieb gegrüßt, Rike

  14. Beautiful start to Spring with your wonderful art Susi but it’s heavy snow here so all a bit weird!!
    Donna xx

  15. Love the little seedling growing and the fern fiddleheads you used in your page today Susi. Fruhling is my new word for the day. :) I took a year of German in college but that was so long ago I don't remember much of it at all. But I did remember this word. And I do LOVE your sewing project. I remember it because the colors and flowers were so full of spring joy. I don't know about you but I always get more energized when spring and longer days come back. Happy March! Hugs-Erika

  16. I love this fantastic spread Susi, the hands cradling the seeds , that will grow to brighten our days in the weeks to come. It is a wonderful background collage as well.

    huge hugs,Jackie xx

  19. What a lovely spring spread Susi :) I'm looking forward to making some 'spring' pages for AJJ and hope it helps encourage the snow to go and more spring like weather as its now March.
    Have a wonderful new month.
    Gill xx

  20. Wow,das ist wider eine tolle Seite. Ich hoffe ja, dass ich es diesen Monat endlich mal wieder schaffe (nicht so wie letzten Monat halb fertig und dann keine Zeit mehr).
    Auch deine Näharbeit ist sowas von schön, bin begeistert.
    LG Carola

  21. What a fabulous page to celebrate March! You have combined the magazine images into your design so beautifully and I love the bright green, it always reminds me of spring 😁. Thanks for sharing the meanings of the words too which are just perfect for your wonderful pages! Wishing you a Happy March dear Susi! J 😊

  22. a great SPRING spread, the image of the seedling growing up from the cupped hands is lovely.

    Sally xx

  23. Bold and dramatic, Susi... very apt for Spring. Cath x

  24. Spring! Yes! I love that encouraging page with the hands cupping the seedling. The colors are perfect for the season :) I've been playing in the patio flowerbed after the rain stopped this afternoon and your art today reflects my feelings :)

  25. Happy Spring, lovely page and a nice look back!

  26. Your sewing projects are beautiful! I love the colorful textures.
    I love winter but this year I find myself wishing for Spring more than usual. This page is exactly while I wish for spring...plantings. I want to work in my garden and watch things grow. There is something so satisfying about nurturing a plant and then being able to pick its beautiful fruit.
    Enjoy your day,

  27. Oh Susi! We will soon be seeing those seedlings! This is so beautiful!What a great find and a lovely collage! Hugs,Chrisx

  28. Great way to start the month. I love the hands with the sproutling. Is that a word. LOL Have a great weekend.

  29. So pretty and bright! This page is so gorgeously spring and it makes me smile. I can't wait to get into my garden and start growing things again. Lovely art as always!

  30. wunderschön deine Journalseite vom Frühlingsanfang und deine zwei schöne genähten Sachen sind so toll geworden.
    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Freitag!!

  31. jedes jahr das selbe... wir können den frühling nicht erwarten;) mir geht´s ja genauso, speziell nach diesem (gefühlt späten) kälteeinbruch der letzten woche! ich freu mich, bei dir schon saftiges helles grün zu sehen!
    gut, dass du das wunderschöne journal cover und das tatüta vom letzten jahr nochmal zeigst... und das tatüta:)
    hab ein schönes WE und liebe grüße, johanna

  32. I love you Frühling page. It's color Green represents spring for us certainly as in spring everything turns Green again (for a short while).
    I love your sewing Project. I remember seeing the tissue holder last year, and I think it's great. Do you use it or have you given it as a present to someone?
    Have a fab weekend,

  33. I am really looking forward to spring and seeing your pages has really lifted my spirits. The seedling reminds me of what I have to look forward to in my garden. I adore gardening and I adore your pages. Have a lovely weekend. Tracy ❤️❤️

  34. Oh wow oh wow, I'm absolutely in love with your sewing projects, dear Susi! They're so gorgeous! I love the sewing you did, the imagery and the backgrounds, so beautifully done!
    Your journal pages breath the new life of Spring, so beautiful too. Isn't it just amazing and wonderful to see the ferns unroll themselves?
    Wishing you a sweet weekend filled with love and happiness!
    Big hugs xx

  35. Die Hände, die den Frühlingskeimling halten, ein so schöner Ausschnitt in deiner Collage! Zu dieser, von allen herbeigesehnten Jahreszeit wird wohl jeder etwas einfallen...
    Am Schönsten sind heute deine Nähblümchen vom letzten Jahr!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  36. Schöne Collageseite Susi. Ja die ersten grünen Blättchen hatten sich schon hervor gewagt, aber Frost und bei uns heute Nacht auch Schnee haben sie ausgebremst.Aber mit unserer Kreativität können wir den Frühling schon mal locken und willkommen heißen.
    Liebe Grüße und schönes Wochenende.
