Happy Tuesday

Morning dear Elizabeth and all my 'Tea time' friends. I'm so happy to be here;-) Last week I missed posting here and visiting everyone.
Today I'm sharing my morning cup of coffee and my Fall journal.

I'm continuing with my Fall sketches in my 'No Sew Handmade Journal'.

One side of the journal is complete-:) I'm so happy with this season theme as the beautiful autumn colors are such an inspiration for me

Last week for Colombus day there were some good deals at the art stores. I got the Strathmore Mixed Media Art Journal. There are 64 pages in this and the paper is very thick and has a creamy shade to it. I prefer that than the stark white pages which some journals have.
I have decided to do one page a week and share it here. 

 This is the first page again I was inspired by Fall. The leaf impression was created out of a
real one-:) I then added Twinks to it and the stencilled circles. The page is done in many layers and I completed it with an inspiring quote.

"Keep going. Everything you need will come to you at the perfect Time."

I usually add quotes that are relevant to me. I've not been feeling very good lately. Of course with time and some good thinking now I'm back to my old self. This line is exactly what I wanted to see.

Thank you for being here
Have a lovely week
I'm linking my page to Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday


  1. What really LOVELY pages Susan!! What kind of paper is in your no sew fall journal-I love the look of it along with the torn edges. Your sunflower bouquet is gorgeous! What fun to get a new journal to play in-and you've begun it perfectly with that wonderful quote. Glad you are feeling better my friend. Happy T day!

  2. That's a wonderful idea to do a fall journal. Great pages. Fall is my favorite time of year.
    Glad you're feeling better. Happy T-Day! :)

  3. I adore the fall journal idea, and your pages are fantastic!
    Happy t-day

  4. I haven't tried twinks yet. Do you like them and use them alot? Lovely work here. I look forward to your one page a week! Hugs! deb

  5. It appears that autumn really works for you. You have created some beautiful pieces.

    I can't believe how many layers I saw on the leaf journal page. I was super impressed. It must have taken forever to create that lovely piece. It's been awhile since I've used my twinks. They are really lush, aren't they? I look forward to many more pages over the next few months, especially if they are as stunning as the first one you created in this new journal.

    Thanks for sharing your coffee, art, and your new journal for T this week. It is all so lovely, it took my breath away.

  6. Beautiful, beautiful art pages. The colours attract me, always. I'm so glad you are feeling back to your 'old self'. Happy T Day :o))

  7. loving you cup and your colors! thanks!

  8. Your journal pages are really lovely and perfect for Autumn Susan.
    I like your quote very much too!
    Take care and I hope you are feeling much much better very soon.

  9. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling your old elf but am glad you've found a way back. Your autumn pages are lovely. The colors and flowers -and bird ;) - of Fall appeal to me. Thx for sharing them :)

  10. What a great journal you are creating. I am impressed with your paintings. Love that quote.
    Hope you are feeling A1 very soon.

  11. Hello and Happy T Day a little late my friend. So happy to see your fall journal again. Just love seeing you make fall art, beautiful pages and colors. I like your no sew book too, like Linda said. YAY for a new journal too, what a yummy first page in it. I like that quote too and glad it could help you get back on track. Hope you are still doing well and staying warm. Thanks for sharing and have a good day, hugs.
