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.

SPA: haunted

the background paper with the haunted house is from jessica sprague, the brush of  the bat and the splatters of blood freebies from the internet. quote googled. and not for my life i can remember where i got this head from...

three-muses-challenge: birds

again some bookmarks, this time with the bird theme.
i love all these birds, but one of my favorites is the hoopoe, a colorful bird with a distinctive 'crown' of feathers. the stamp with his picture is custom made. therefore i used it´s swedish name härfågel, which i like especially.

take-a-word: blue

immer diese entscheidungen...
die motivwahl für meine küchenglaswand steht noch aus. war ich mir aufgrund der einzelfotos zwischendurch sicher, die distelsamen zu bevorzugen, finde ich jetzt doch die bärenklaufotos wieder interessanter...
oh those decisions!
i knew i wanted a kitchen wall glass in blue tones, but the motifs...?
my first choice were the heracleums, then i thought i would take thistle seeds...

jetzt hab ich einfach mal die wand fotografiert und so in etwa grob mittels fotobearbeitung die bilder eingefügt... sind die disteln nicht zu langweilig? ...  werden es doch die bärenklau-fotos werden? ...
i photographed the kitchen wall and sort of added the photos virtually... now i think the thistles might be too boring... good chances for the heracleum?...

texture tuesday: orange

this week´s theme at TT is orange...
one of my favorite autumnal joys in my garden are these "lantern" plants. here a pic enhanced with kim´s newest texture "partings". i chose for a quote from william allingham, but shortened it for my purpose (original: Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.)

take-a-word: zetti

"zetti" over the years has emerged from (originally) the stamp line of teesha moore´s "zettiology" company to the style teesha created with these and her collages: quirky, whimsical, FUN, often black & white contrasting bright colors... 
here i used a zetti flame stamp at the bottom of this atc, the buttercup cow is from a napkin. background old ledger, tinted, stenciled, stamped.

disteln und bärenklau...

... sind meine favoriten, was die gestaltung der glaswand in meiner küche betrifft. da kann ich mich auf 225x50 cm austoben, sprich glas dieser größe mit eigenen motiven bedrucken lassen.
ich möchte ein motiv nehmen, das man lange sehen kann, und die samenstände dieser pflanzen gehören schon seit jahren zu meinen favoriten. also habe ich mal wieder (wir haben schönstes sommerwetter bei 25°++) hunderte fotos gemacht, damit ich die qual der wahl habe;)
ich hab jetzt mal im format 16:9 fotografiert, es werden wohl drei fotos nebeneinander passen. ist nur noch nicht entschieden, ob die distelsamen oder der bärenklau das rennen machen...
the seeds of thistles and heracleum are some of my alltime favorites. i photographed hundreds of them, as one of these species will make it onto my kitchen glass wall (225x50 cm). i think i can place three pictures onto this space side by side. now i will play along and hopefully will come to a decision which plant i prefer...

take-a-word: numbers

i feel so honored to be the guest host for this week´s take-a-word challenge.
"numbers" is one of my favorite themes...
the background is a paper from scrapbookgraphics (tangie conversed), which i changed into red.
the texture on top is from shadowhouse creations.
