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.

three-muses-challenge: rain / umbrella

the song i chose for this braille spread is from creedence clearwater revival:
who´ll stop the rain
 (the actual colors are more black/purple than the photo took it)

 the torn picture is glued on as pockets...
the stripes are bound to decorative yarn strips and glued on at the top

finally found this tim holtz umbrella man among my clearstamps.
big alpha from heindesign.


  1. You are very creative and talented, johanna. Gorgeous art work. Rain is so natural looking especially on the umbrellas.

  2. Wow Johanna, das ist ja eine abgefahrene Idee! Da stimmt einfach alles. Der Hintergrund hat tolle Farben, die Regenschirme, der Umbrella-Man und der Text als Regen. Herrlich anzuschauen!
    Und ich hab jetzt nen Wurm im Ohr...

  3. Was für eine supertolle Idee, die Doppelseite ist mal wieder der Hit.

  4. Das ist echt mega genial gestaltet!!!!

  5. This is marvellous, wonderful in its idea and wonderful in execution - the song printed on the strips, the wet umbrellas, Mr. Umbrella man and the background with the large text - it's original and creative artwork.

  6. I can actually feel the rain from your artwork! This is magical and I love it! xxoo

  7. wow, thanks for showing the process, the end result is just beautiful. the background is great with the text.

  8. Wunderbare Ideen! Das Foto mit den Schirmen ist so genial und die Idee mit den Streifen genauso!
    Ich finde es immer wieder toll, wie Du Songtexte verarbeitest. Auch für mich sind solche Texte immer wieder wichtig und ich sollte mir ein Beispiel an Dir nehmen...
    Alles Liebe, Manuela

  9. Johanna, there is no doubt about it, you actually take my breath away with your wonderful creativity. There is just so much to feast my eyes upon.

  10. Wow! This is just brilliant! You have put so much work and creativity into this piece Johanna, it's fantastic! xx

  11. All the steps and details make for a beautiful piece!

  12. Your creativity always amazes me, Johanna. The lyric strips are a brilliant touch. I love it all!

  13. Was für eine toll umgesetzte Idee wieder!Auch das Australia Teil ist wunderschön.*schwärm*
    Momentan werd ich gar nicht richtig wach und schleiche nur durch die blogs im Dämmerzustand.
