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.

angels are the theme for this week´s take-a-word challenge
and for this month´s art-journal-journey we are asked for collages...
so i made this collaged page:

it is the second page in the spread together with this one.

the Background was gelli-printed with a spiral stencil. stamped "angel" Definition (stampinks) onto tissue and glued it on. the Kids-painted angels (stampinks) are stamped on a yellow dyed glasses-wipe.
the glassine envelope (contained Sweets some day ago) with the beautiful angel Label was given to me years ago. on the back i found the address of the munich shop it was from (worth to Google: - but this item is no longer available). fixed the envelope with a red tinted washi tape.

pics from the making process:


  1. Fantastic creative AJ spread and the new page works very well on TAW-theme.
    Great art work, Johanna.

  2. Noch eine tolle Journalseite, danke fürs Mitmachen bei Art Journal Journey! LG, Valerie

  3. Eine tolle Journalseite ist das, liebe Johanna

  4. Passt ganz wunderbar zur linken Seite.. ein harmonisches Ganzes Johanna!
    Ich freu mich , dass Dein Thema bei AJJ gefunden wurde und Du anscheinend im FLOW bist ...
    Hab eine gute neue Woche!

  5. Love your angel and your journal page!Gorgeous, my friend!

  6. What I like about this spread is, both sides are SO different, yet seem to go together perfectly. One side is so subdued and serious, the other side so whimsical. Yet they somehow seem to belong together, perhaps because they are tied by color. Impressive.

  7. Thank you for showing us how you made the spread! Wonderful work indeed! xx

  8. Wonderful collage pages, Johanna. I love the story of the bits and pieces!913

  9. They look fantastic together, Johanna! :) Such a cute little angel, and those wings, oh my!

  10. Really super angel collage pages you created Johanna!
    I have a lot to catch up on after being away...

  11. Oh nein! Was ist das denn mal wieder wundervolles :)
    Die gesamten Engel sind ja wohl der Knaller. Aber woher bitte hast Du das große Engelmotiv her?! Und dann auch noch 10g von Engel...!
    Ich liebe Deinen Humor! Es bleibt dabei, auch im Jahr 2014 bin ich ein FAN von Dir!
    LG Conny

    PS: Auch wenn Du mir meine "große Liebe" versaust und mir erklärst, dass ein Elch ja "Schaufeln" haben muss :) Mensch , Johanna! Das ist dann eben ein "Frosch" und der muss geküsst werden bevor die Schaufeln erscheinen. :)))
