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.

GPP crusade no. 8 - cheap tricks/ one more...

i have another idea for crusade no. 8 (michelle ward´s street team challenge): "cheap tricks"

noch ein nachtrag zur "billige tricks" herausforderung von michelles street team crusade:

ribbons are quite expensive mostly. you can make them on your own by cutting fabrics into stripes (don´t worry about fraying, that look can be interesting;).
here i have a fabric that "gives" you the stripes, but of course you can take any kind of fabric with any pattern...
see sample here (the ribbons in the tags are cut out from the fabric shown here).

bänder sind meist recht teuer. man kann sich auch selber welche machen (wenn einen das ausfransen nicht stört; aber das kann auch interessant aussehen;).
auf diesem stoff hier sind die streifen praktisch schon vorgegeben, aber man kann natürlich auch jeden anderen stoff nehmen, egal mit welchem muster...
ein beispiel hab ich hier: aus dem hier gezeigten stoff sind die bändel in den tags geschnitten.


  1. Johanna...what a great idea. I never thought about cutting fabric up to make my own ribbon.

  2. johanna - thanks for sharing your clever trick with us. you always have some goodies up your sleeve and are so generous to share your ideas. we always love a cheap trick!!
