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: hearts

neil young´s song "heart of gold" for the take-a-word challenge this week...
the orange felt alpha is credited to   marie@freedigitalscrapbooking 
clipart anatomic heart printed on yellow background (cardstock), glued on forming a pocket;
tape stripes
before i could begin i eraser carved a heartbeat stamp:

 another thing to consider as a stencil: these old plastic doilies, which lay under the glass covered boards of our grandmas (a stamppal at our retreat had some, and they give great patterns!)


  1. Really creative and cool! The plastic doily makes a fantastic pattern! xxoo

  2. Johanna, your two pieces for our "heart" challenge are superb. (Love the felt alpha!!). Your blog is always a joy to visit. I'm sure we all throw away paper and plastic doilies(and other treasures) but to someone like you they mean ART!! Thanks for the tip.

  3. Lovely original ideas for TAW's Heart challenge. Very inspiring, I must get moving on mine!
    The heartbeat is especially interesting.

  4. Oh such beautiful work as always my dear! xx

  5. Unique piece, Johanna, love to see a different coloured heart instead of the normal red - great art!

  6. Your pieces are always so creative, Johanna! A real pleasure to view! :)
    Have a happy Novembrrrrrr. ;)

  7. Wunderbar! Ich mag all die Farben und Strukturen! Der Stempel ist selbst geschnitzt?! - so fein?!
    Alles Liebe, Manuela

  8. Cool samples, Johanna.
    My woman in love on:

  9. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me, Johanna. I love your heart of gold ... and the doily stencil tip is a good one (also the paper ones you can buy).
