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 (tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

take-a-word: orange

due to the cold and rainy weather the strawberry season (as well as asparagus etc) is not as it should be...
only few homegrown fruits to buy so far (and i refuse to buy these from abroad because of the ecological harms).

orange background (free from the web) with "fraise" label (can´t remember the source), clip art strawberries at 36% opacity;
sewing elements from scrapbookgraphics (cvisions), texture overlay from shadowhouse

  1. Ja, die Bauern haben es dieser Tage nicht leicht, es kann eigentlich nur noch besser werden.
    Dein Werk macht auf alle Fälle Lust auf eine Schale Erdbeeren.

  4. That's a pretty label for strawberries. Ours are just coming into the shops here and I believe the crop is going to be good because of the long slow season.

  5. Wieder mal eine schöne Collage und sie macht wirklich Lust auf Erdbeeren! Bis jetzt habe ich auch noch kaum welche geholt. Nun ist es aber trocken bei uns und seit gestern kommt auch die Sonne zum Vorschein. Nur kalt ist es noch! Meine Tomatenpflanzen wollen auch nicht so richtig wachsen.
    Alles Liebe, Manuela

  6. Maybe this is selfish, but I'm glad to hear we aren't the only ones with cold rainy weather. This is a summery card, though!

  7. Wunderbar, deine Collage, Johanna!
    Mhhmmmm, ich bekomme Lust auf Erdbeeren...
    Aber auch ich werde mich noch gedulden, denn die einzigen, die man hier bei uns zur Zeit bekommt, kommen aus Spanien und wenn ich die verzehren würde, hätte ich mehr Pstizide als Vitamine zu mir genommen.

  11. The weather seems to be in a strange pattern worldwide...it may have stolen your strawberries but it hasn't stopped you from creating a lovely vintage collage. Well done!

  12. Oh, I hope it warms up for you soon, Johanna. We have enjoyed the first proper sunny weather since May 2012 .. so hopefully it's on it's way to you.

    Your label is beautiful, by the way.
