2364 FRIENDS are precious, my friend Jenny ♥♥♥

Friends are the family we choose, aren't they!? I am happy to have lovely internet-friends of art online since many years and many a time  think about them and try to connect with them.
Art Journal Journey people are  near to my heart . We are in year 
8 (( EIGHT)- (wow!!!!)) of Art Journal Journey, that's a long time.


 Right from the start Jenny from Jenny's Zeitvertreib  is member of the artist group.  She always supports the challenge and inspires me and I love her as a long-standing art- and blogging friend think sister from another mother. Her extraordinary be-ing and carefree art makes me just so happy. Please visit her  and  pop over to Jenny's blog to check it out and to give her some love!  She's just the best and would love to see your comments. Jenny  has a  bad time and needs all her power and much good thoughts !
Warm-hearted people are lighthouses that you can  return to 
all the time ! 
I wish you all the best dear Jenny , my sister of another monther!

I have a spread to share today featuring some challenges you should keep in mind:

 ( There are all kinds of geometric shapes on my spread ) 

o.k.- maybe the yellow touch I used  is not very appropriate but the rest of the colours are cold.

TMTA & MORE - ( where Danilea Rogall invites us now weekly to take part with all sorts of projects - not just ATCs and Rolodex cards ) The first theme of the year is "TAPES" .
I used a lot of washitape on the spread. 
We ask that you tell us about your choice
 I used  my old washitape and other supplies I have for long time.

 Thank you for your visit!
Have a great weekend!



  1. Beautiful pages, I will go see Jenny!

  2. Hello Beautiful!!! you have beautiful pages to give free rein to your imagination since you are very good at it! love Liyongo! and I'm going to fly to visit Jenny !!

    Many kisses !! 😚😚😚

  3. It is a gorgeous journal spread Susi and I love the words.
    I visit jenny and she is a wonderful artist.
    We meet many folk here in blogland that we are blessed to call friends and you are right when you say they are the family we choose for ourselves.
    Congratulations on 8 years of Art Journey Art.
    Have a good weekend Susi.

  4. Beautiful post, magnificent art and the kindest of hearts Susi. I feel very much the same with my true blogging friends, we meet many people in our lives but there are times when we discover some that give guidance and support more than those we have known all our lifetime. That's true friendship.
    Congratulations on the 8th year, a magnificent achievement for Art Journal Journey. If I had the time I would create everyday to join in.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear Susi, I do hope all is well with you?
    Hugs Tracey xx

  5. Beautiful pages Susi, the colours remind me of a frosty day with the sun just peeking through. You've used one of my favourite quotes.
    Congratulations on 8 years of AJA.

  6. Hi Susi lovely pages ,love the colours,hope you have a lovely day my friend xx

  7. Fabulous work Susi, I love the cold and frosty look and oh for some now...sending you hot aussie hugs.xx

  8. I apologize. I am so late visiting because I was gone all day yesterday. Didn't get home till really late and fell asleep. In fact, I sort of dozed on the way home. Thankfully, I wasn't driving.

    I was at Jenny's blog and saw several people tell her they came from your blog. This is a wonderful tribute to her and I suspect she will greatly appreciate it. It is also a beautiful entry for Art Journal Journey. You rock, dear.

    PS I'm worried about Alison, too. It isn't like her to be gone so long.

  9. A lovely spread Susi, the washi tape creates great continuity across both pages xxx

  10. It's so wonderful to have our art friends/sisters Susi, and I love dear Jenny's carefree art too.
    You've created another marvellous page for the challenge. I'm sorry I have been absent and not commenting lately, but my visitors are now gone, and I hope to catch up this week, and make some more art for my challenge.
    Many hugs,
    Alison xox

  11. Beautiful pages Susi-you always do great artwork

    How thoughtful to add links for us to visit as well-thank you for that

    Have a great weekend

    Love Chrissie xx

    So lovely with friends like that, given us through this community , I do have some very close friends out there as well , and like you, I treasure them very much. I hope you are having a great weekend, Susi and send you much love and warm hugs . Dorthe xoxo

  18. What a lovely tribute to Jenny. Our blogging friends are precious to us. We miss them if they are not there. And much love to you from me for creating and continuing Art Journal Journey for all of us who meet our artist friends there.

  19. I do love your art today. Talk about getting around to a lot of challenges in one page! Wow Susi. That is an amazing feat. I didn't know Jenny wasn't doing well. I usually stop by her blog and I hope she gets better soon. It is always sad to hear when someone isn't well. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and staying warm. We have our woodstove going to keep the house comfy. Hugs-Erika

  27. Liebe Susi,
    acht Jahre sind eine lange Zeit, auch wenn ich mir da mittlerweile nicht mehr ganz so sicher bin, in letzter Zeit gehen die Jahre immer schneller vorbei.
