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.

PAF - snail mail / freebie

i´m linking these snail photos to PAF showcase this week oct 7th - oct 9th --- take your time to visit the other contributions, great photo art there!

the first snail pic is edited with a halftone frame

on the second one i used bonnie´s medieval magic texture. i decided to turn it into a faux postage stamp (which i often do with my pictures), adding the stencil std font.
i´d like to offer this as a freebie for you to use... just print it out in a small format and cut it with stamp scissors (fiskars f.e.). i really love to personalize my mail/art this way...

das schneckenpost-bild ist ein freebie: einfach im kleinformat ausdrucken, mit briefmarkenschere ausschneiden und als "falsche zusatzbriefmarke" verwenden


  1. hiscaThanks, What an adorable idea.
    Now for some printing... I have the correct scissors.
    xoxo Kim
