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.

i decided to make bookmarks from the papers i dyed on sunday... the colors are soaked through, so the backside is colorful, too (and not as smeary as my card backsites often are...)
as the paper is quite lightweight, i laminated the bookmarks and maybe will add a string on top. maybe.
i also thought it was time to slaughter one of my old zoology books (not copying any longer, things must be used...)
and adding postal stamps always is a favorite choice - so this is good for the three muses, too...
wollte mal wieder lesezeichen machen, das gefärbte brillenputztuch-papier vom sonntag ist ideal dafür. das hat sich nämlich auf die rückseite durchgefärbt (sonst hab ich immer das problem, dass meine karten hinten vollgesaut sind). da es relativ dünn ist, hab ich es laminiert und vielleicht werde ich oben auch noch loch mit bändel hinmachen. mal sehen.
außerdem musste jetzt mal endlich ein altes zoologiebuch dran glauben, nix mehr kopieren, das zeug muss aufgebraucht werden... und briefmarken verwende ich sowieso gerne, also qualifiziert sich das ganze auch noch für das wochenthema bei den 3 musen...


  1. Tolle Lesezeichen (die kann man immer gebrauchen) - die Idee mit den Brillenputztüchern ist genial.

  2. Wow was sieht das super aus.
    Einfach toll geworden. Klasse.

  3. Such exquisite art, Johanna, lovely backgrounds!

  4. Well done Johanna!
    I'd like to have bookmarks like these... Real old book...hmmmm... Your work is splendid!

  5. Immer wieder schön deine Werke zu sehen,
    Tolle Lesezeichen!

  6. Beautiful work. I too have piles of dyed paper and books which I bought to cut up but keep copying instead!

  7. What a great idea Johanna. They're beautiful! xx

  8. Splendid book marks, Johanna! Good for you using up your hoard.

  9. What very special bookmarks, Johanna. The backgrounds are beautiful, and your use of the stamps is perfect!

  10. You did a great job with those papers. They made lovely backgrounds for your bookmarks. I also like to work with postage stamps, so fun!
