Tuesday stands for Smoothie and Art

Morning to Elizabeth and all others at T stands for Tuesday. Today for my drink I am having a smoothie-:) It is so cooling to have one especially on hot days.

 I'm still continuing with the daily prompts from Roots. The above one is of Day-15. The above page was done using Dylusion sprays and water color. There was no planning on how this page should evolve but I was very happy with the end result.
Day-16 I went with an abstract piece for this day's challenge. "And don't think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It is quiet, but the roots are down there riotous."  Rumi
 Day-17 Yet another page with so many layers. Love the quote, "... Overcome fear, behold wonder."                                                                                                                                           Richard Bach

Day-18 This was a page that I did today morning. Am not feeling very inspired but I didn't want to quit. The background is a painted tissue. On it I pasted many circles and little dragonflies that were painted on deli paper 

The above two pictures are from the DLP. The challenge for this week was to use numbers and I adhered a Bingo sheet and other ephemera to my page.

Wishing you all a warm and happy Tuesday.


  1. Wow! WOW! These are all so lovely. Day 15 made me smile. I'm glad you liked it because I sure do. They are all gorgeous, though. And I was also impressed with your DLP pages. I think washi tape sales got a BIG boost when everyone joined that challenge.

    Thanks for sharing your smoothie with us, because it's going to cool me off, too (grin). And thanks for sharing your lovely art, because it is beautiful.

  2. LOVE all your artwork! The colors are fabulous!!! Hugs! deb

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your journal pages!
    Happy T-day

  4. Great journal pages. I'm impressed with you - and others at the T party - who take on a challenge and stick to it. I'm just not good at that.


  5. These are all such really beautiful pages Susan! The page with the dragonflies reminds me of a magical forest. And the Rumi quotes-I LOVE those. Good for you keeping up with daily prompts -I have never tried keeping up with any daily challenges. Happy T day- and stay cool.

  11. Nice collection of creativity :) Love my morning smoothies also ♥

  12. Hi Susan, so happy to see your beautiful pages again. I know you love this class, YAY!! Thank you for linking me up for T Time. Trying not to let the nonworking computer bother me too much, can't wait to get a new one and not have issues again. It only works in spurts now and only when Rich tips it upside down and back again, lol. CRAZY!!
    I sent you an email through my phone email, hope it gets to you. If so let me know please.
    I am doing good and kids are having good first days back to school this week, YAY!! I've been so busy still each day though haven't had much time for any art. Should be easier after next week though. It's been super hot here the last few days, feels like summer again. A cooler and rainy front is coming now though, hoping the garden survives it.
    Have a wonderful week with boys and your art! HUGS!

  13. Ooh, I love smoothies! Not had one in an age - note to self - Indulge!
    Your pages are all lovely, but I especially like your Day 15s colours. But then Days 16 & 17 is pretty awesome too. Oh, and so are - well, all of them really, Lol :D
    My Wee Man went back to school yesterday and the house is sooo quiet! But fine for craft time ;)

  14. I don't drink smoothies, but it's nice seeing what everybody else is having :)

  15. Susan,
    Your journal pages are beautiful... love the quotes ..

    Be well ....
