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).

insects 5 / insekten 5

for this one i took a page of an old ledger book (with old writings on it). colored it with bluetone ink & sprinkled some rust color (adirondack) into the wet ink with an old toothbrush. after drying i stamped it with the insect diagram (stempelmine), two textstamps from rbbb and smeared a little white oil pastel over parts of the page. edged with rust stamppad from adirondack. then i colored 3 small tags with aged mahogany from distressed inks refill (same color as diagram stamping). edged the tags with white color pencil and stamped insects on from rbbb. - i had to wait to glue them on, which i did this morning and now we will go for a visit to my parents-in-law; so no more art today...

hab hierfür eine alte, schon beschriftete seite aus einem kontenbuch genommen. das erstmal eingefärbt mit bläulicher tinte, in die ich noch nass mit einer alten zahnbürste etwas rust farbe von adirondack gesprenkelt habe. nach dem trocknen mit aged mahogany von den distressed stempelkissen das insektendiagramm (stempelmine) und zwei textstempel von rbbb aufgestempelt. teile der seite mit weißer ölpastelkreide überschmiert. ränder mit rust stempelkissen bearbeitet. dann 3 kleine tags mit der aged mahogany farbe (ein bisschen was verdünnt aus dem refill) getönt, hinterher mit insektenmotiven von rbbb bestempelt und mit weißem farbstift die ränder der tags bemalt. - hab die seite heute erst fertiggestellt, als alles trocken war und ich die tags aufkleben konnte. nun gehts ab zu den schwiegereltern, heute kommt also sonst nichts mehr...


  1. Never thought one could make such nice thing with insects on... love yours!

  2. That background is awesome. And i love those little tags...they are fabulous in that color.

  3. This is fantastic. I love the insect diagram, the way you have treated the old ledger paper and the beautiful stamped tags. It is perfect!

    I am a little behind because I got really unwell, but I have some drawings planned out and some backgrounds done, just need to put the two together now!

    Your work is fantastic.
