social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

insects 4 / insekten 4

base for this page was a marbled paper i had gotten from jane dickinson some time ago. (i always had saved these papers "for eternity", they seemed too beautiful to cut up. but now i dared...) background stamping with leonardo da vinci´s reverse script (by lost coast designs). stamped on transparency   and melted the edges of the acetate to add a bit interest. now it was a bit tricky to fix, which i did then with staples (colored black for invisibility). as the butterfly stamp is in the style of da vinci´s vitruvian man, i named the page accordingly;) edges oil pastels.

basis für diese seite war eins der tollen selbstmarmorierten papiere, die mir jane dickinson mal geschickt hatte (hatte sie nie anschneiden wollen, weil sie so schön sind. aber hab mich jetzt doch entschlossen, sie nicht "für die ewigkeit" aufzuheben;) hintergrund bestempelt mit dem spiegelschriftstempel da vinci´s (von lost coast designs). libellenstempel auf transparentfolie, die ränder davon etwas angeschmolzen, um ein bisschen effekt zu erzielen. lag dann natürlich nicht mehr flach - hab die folie festgetuckert und die klammern schwarz eingefärbt zwecks unsichtbarkeit. da der schmetterling im stil von leonardo´s vitruvian man ist, hab ich die seite entsprechend betitelt. ränder wieder ölpastellkreide.


  1. This is wonderful! I too am guilty of hanging on to the lovely papers (often hand made/decorated, like this) that people send me because they are so beautiful. But it is a good idea to make use of them, especially when the results are as good as this!

  2. Love this! I had never seen a vitruvian dragonfly before, it's cool! I recognize the paper hoarding ;-)
