Inspired by ......Klimt

A journal page using  more of the Klimt  cards Valerie sent to me a while ago.
 So once again he is the inspiration for my journal page.
I also really  liked this quote of his that I found on the internet.

On  the left I have a collage of the few photos I remembered to take. The initial background and  some of the pieces I wanted to use. I also added a few scraps of material and printed canvas border.  In case you wonder , no, it is not my stitching, this was added in the computer program I use [notes in my sidebar].
So this page is for Gill's theme at
 Art Journal Journey
Inspired by....

Have a good weekend
 and thank you for calling in to see me today


  1. Wonderful use of the fabulous Klimt images and so well composed and layout of the handmade beackground and the different collage elements and the digital stitching looks fantastic! A gorgeous page inspired by Valerie who sent such pretty images dear Yvonne! Thank you again for another fabulous entry linked to Art Journal Journey! I wish you a very happy weekend!
    Hugs, Susi

  2. So pleased to see another one of your fantastic Klimt pages Yvonne using those great napkins.
    Love the colours, pattern and textures on your page and the stitching is awesome even if it is digital :)
    (and you don't have to worry about running out of thread or getting blood all the page if the needle goes in the wrong place - argh!)
    Thanks again for linking to AJJ.
    Hope your weekend going well.

  3. Superb page and very evocative of Klimt. I went to see an exhibition of his work at the Liverpool Tate, a few years ago - it was mind blowing! I had no idea how good he was until I saw his work. I particularly love his use of gold.

  4. Great journal page, love the colours and glad you could use the cards. Have a good weekend, hugs, Valerie

  5. Klimt would be proud of the way you paid homage to him in this beautiful journal entry. I was especially taken with the composition, which included the torn fabric that allowed your eye to stop and take in the different elements. This is a remarkable entry and it's thrilling to have you share it with us at Art Journal Journey.

  6. Oh! So pretty! I love Klimt's artwork and your page depicts his style beautifully.

  7. Klimt is inspiring. He was quite the character in personality but he sure had talent. You made a great page inspired by that talent Yvonne. It shows your talent too. Happy rest of your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  8. What a precious page Yvonne! It's just wonderful !,. I love how you've been creating the background, and the beautiful cards you've used. The details of the ribbons are beautiful, it's fabulous!
    I wish you a happy start of the week, big hugs, Caty

  9. Aha, Klimt is amongst us, I have a friend who recently went over to France and there was an unusual exhibition of his work....they were projected onto buildings, it looked quite stunning, in fact you could probably see them if you go onto my Facebook page & under friends look for Tiffany was about 2 weeks ago!

  10. Beautiful Klimt inspired page!! Oh and I love your new header (at least I think it is new)....

  11. Fabulous page, Yvonne. I love Klimt too. What a great gift from Valerie.

  12. This is fabulous page Yvonne! Love that quote! Hugs, Chrisx
