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.

take-a-word: creepy

goin´ with mike oldfields shadow on the wall in this spread.

i made a stencil/mask from an enlarged photo of the movie nosferatu, 
the large danger sign is stamped with text from rubberbabybuggybumpers.
stencils from crafter´s workshop (diamonds and numbers),
frame stamping with a foam stamp cut from a tim holtz/sizzix die.
large alpha from heindesign.

this is one of the spreads where i think "should i add more?", but then i couldn´t imagine what and so i call it done (at least for the moment;))


  1. This is so artistically clever and creative! xxoo

  2. i think it's creepy as it is :) very cool indeed!

  8. Bad man on the stairs - yes, what could be scarier. Brilliant and so well done.

  9. You know that saying, Johanna : 'less is more', well me thinks this is perfectly creepy enough as it is. Fantastic spread as always.

  13. I agree with Judy...shadows can be very creepy and you've made a wonderful creepy spread my dear! xx

  14. That is most certainly a creepy silhouette. I also enjoyed reading about your ingenious way of creating tools. Blessings!

  15. I love the way you've used the looming presence, Johanna. Very nice journal spread!

  16. The shadow is so simple but says so much VERY CREEPY...great job.
