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).

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

beuys quote

"i think the tree is an element of Regeneration which in itself is a concept of time"
tag created with distressed inks; tree sprayed with glimmer mist, cut out with sizzix die.
numbered circle stamp custom made.
font: hedgerow
challenges: time quotes at 3 muses, trees at moo mania &more


  1. How fun. And of course, I love the stamp you made.

  2. Ein wundervolles Tag und ein toller Spruch, liebe Johanna.

    Danke für's Mitmachen bei MOO-MANIA & MORE

  3. Gorgeous tag with the great quote. You can estimate the age of a tree from its trunk f.ex.

  4. Hier rockt der rote Baum auf der grünen Wiese Johanna... Der Spruch ist genial dazu!
    Spitze !
    Danke für's Teilen auf


  5. I love the quote. It's all the more meaning as I've just watched t he glorious red maple outside my window drop its leaves almost overnight, and now stand naked against a cold, winter sky. I always enjoy your thoughtful work, Johanna.

  6. Hier in Kassel stehen inzwischen 7000 Eichen, Beuys-Eichen!

    Eine Errungenschaft der Documenta 7 (1982)- Beuys hatte eine Plastik aus 7000 Basaltsteinen aufgeschichtet...
    Wer 500 DM spendete, durfte an anderer Stelle eine Eiche pflanzen und eine der Basaltsäulen daneben platzieren.
    Die komplette Umsetzung hat 5 Jahre gedauert.
    ...das ist mir jetzt gerade wieder dazu eingefallen...

  7. Brilliant quote and you created such a super tag to illustrate it Johanna!
    I am always attracted to trees and this time of year it is extra interesting to see their "bones" exposed (it took me awhile to appreciate the architecture of them during the winter!)

  8. I love that dramatic tree contrasting with the green background.

  9. A wonderful tag beautiful stamp work and a great quote.

  10. Creative and unique and beautifully realised, Johanna. Love it.

  11. was für ein geniales Tag! Was für ein genialer Spruch! Einfach nur klasse, Johanna :)
    Liebe Grüße

  12. This is such a striking tag with the red tree and the lovely background, and as always I am fascinated by your fonts with such intriguing names such as this one, "Hedgerow".
