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: still life

the current challenge is:
"Still Life" where the challenge is to create a "less is more" collage featuring one or two (or more) everyday items on an uncluttered background. Simplicity is the keyword.
here is what i came up with.
background paper blue water-paper from shadowhouse.
font: rochester [drop shadow + bevel &emboss]
eggs: my huge stash of vintage pictures 


  1. Wow- I really like this collage Johanna!

  2. Das spricht mich total an - Farben,Schlichtheit,...
