2298 Lose yourself in the things you love

for that is where you will find yourself too.

I have a spread in my Circle - Journal to share today for
    Jo's wonderful theme over at

I will also link to our popular "EVEN MORE FLOWERS" theme over at

It was fun to paint Lavender,
I used white gesso over craft paper , watersoluble crayons, colored pencils 
and in the end a cheap non-permanent black fineliner for some extra accents.

Happy weekend to you all!


  1. A beautiful spread, the lavender painting looks awesome. I love these flowers, I was lucky to walk through a field of lavender a few years ago and I will never forget the perfume aroma in the air.
    Have a good weekend Susi.

  2. What beautiful words Suzi I feel they are words spoken from my very self. I love those charming lavenders and have many growing in my front garden. I can spend hours watching the Bee's dash around from one to the other.
    Wishing you a wonderful creative weekend dear..
    Hugs Tracey xx

  3. Wow, you always create such beauty! The white gesso provides aalovely backdrop for your beautiful painted lavender and splatters, and the quote is wonderful 😁. The black doodles added some lovely detail and form to your flowers too - perfect! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at AJJ again dear Susi! Wishing you a happy Friday and Weekend my friend! J 😊 x

  4. I am loving these beautiful spring blooms also Susi. I love the spring purple. They are so pretty and inspiring for sure. And another fabulous quote. Right now I cannot lose myself in work-I am so ready to end this year- and all I want to do is lose myself in the garden, art and home...and I do feel like I am floating between 2 worlds but not in either. So how true how true. have a super weekend. Hugs-Erika

  5. Your lavender is beautiful. I have some, but it has never bloomed. I may show my lavender what it should look like based on your drawings (grin). This is a wonderous drawing, and I am so, so, so impressed with it. It's a fabulous entry for Art Journal Journey, and a truly meaningful sentiment, too. All in all, a beautiful spread.

  6. So pretty Susi <3 Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  29. Der Lavendel ist wunderschön gezeichnet und kommt auf diesem mit Gesso bestrichenen Kraftpapier herrlich zur Geltung! Ein toller Spruch ist das ebenfalls! Diese Kringel mit dem schwarzen Fineliner sehen super aus und geben den schönen lila Blüten den letzten Pfiff!
