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.

gelli printing on clear packing tape

on my stamping retreat i experimented with gelli plate + packing tape, as shown in this Video on YouTube:
i really love the results, but you should bring along some time and other things to do in the drying times between the steps... it takes about 3 hours to build up the layers.
(as the first one i show has a lot of pink in it, i also link it to take-a-word)

when ready, you can glue the tape onto a double sided tacky sheet (as above; so you can decide later where to use it)
or you can instantly glue the packing tape onto paper (here: Music sheet):
or onto Aluminium foil (the scanner doesn´t take that well):
and another one - with purple/green Color scheme:


  1. I've read this is the best way to clean your gelli plate, but I've never seen ANY transfers that are as lovely as yours. These are terrific. You amaze me!

  2. I bet you enjoyed experimenting with this technique, Johanna, you have created some amazing pieces!
