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.

... is the Color choice of SOC this week
and this is what i came up with:
the Background of this Piece is spray painted with a stencil, then scanned.
sunflower from my own photos, made into png to remove the sky.
layered in photoshop, added the Quote with font daft brush and a texture overlay from designcuts for framing.
another Piece in These Colors:

i stitched this bird (inspired by Ivan semesyuk) in two shades of purple onto a stripe of fabric, on which i had printed a large carved stamp with yellow acrylics.
after stitching i hand-sewed the edges together and so i got a pouch for Holding some mail.
i always have mail Floating around and maybe i should sew more of These...


  1. Sehr schöne Werke für SOV, das Vögelchen ist super geworden. GLG, Valerie

  2. WOW. You outdid yourself. Your digital art is wonderful, especially since you don't rely on others' photos or images. But the bird you hand sewed on is stupendous.

  3. You created 2 beautiful works of art and both so different using this week's colors. I love your digital art, and your stitched bird is absolutely amazing and so creative! Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us at SOC! HUGS!!!

  4. I really love your digital collage!
    What a work that bird must have been! Very nice idea ;-)

  5. Love your stitched bird, and that sunflower is just glorious!

  6. such a cute little bird
    and lovely sun=shinny piece

  7. Love your piece. Your digital work is awesome. Great use of the colors.

  8. Dieses Mal bist du aber schneller! Hast du bei deiner Stickerei geahnt, welche Farben kommen werden ... es sind ja eigentlich auch nicht deine... Dein süßes Vögelchen hat ja sogar einen Glitzerschwanz! Ulrike

  9. Oh My! This is delightful!!
    Super idea!

  10. I just adore sunflower, and the work of art you made with it is lovely. Great quote, too. Your stitched bird is a cutie. Still damp and chilly here in Scotland too.

  11. love how you have done the background for the sunflower, BJ

  12. Gorgeous use of colors Johanna- that little bird is extraordinary!

  13. Ahhh - die Farben öffnen das Herz...

  14. Super Werke für SOC Johanna ... wow!
    Die sehen hammermäßig aus!
    Tolle Idee auf Papier zu sticken !
    Erinnert mich an die Stickkarten meiner Kindheit, die hab ich so gern gemacht... kennst Du das noch? Das waren so Packungen da waren Karten aus Karton mit aufgedruckten Motiven und schon geloch und dann die passenden Garnfarben für Kinder...
    Lieben Gruß von

  15. I like both of your images. As a photographer and digital artist, I love what you did with the first one. And as a former fiber artist, I love the stitching on the second.

    Thanks for visiting my SOC this week.

  16. Beide Werke sind wunderschön, ist ja auch eine tolle Farbkombi.

  17. Wow, the sunflower page is stunning and I love the birdie.

  18. Gorgeous pieces Johanna... and the stitched birdie is beautiful...

  19. these are two equally beautiful projects. That sunflower is amazing, and I love your sewn card-so sweet! SOC #54

  20. I LOVE both pieces, the are amazing!

  21. Das Sonnenblumenwerk ist einfach nur klasse... so... sonnig :-)

  22. They are both so beautiful and vibrant.

  23. Your sunflower piece is superb, so incredibly colourful and made. I like that the sunflower is your own photo and enjoyed (as always) your detailed description of how you made it. (Daft brush!!! - actually a very good looking font).
    As for the little stitched bird - mega-wow! - and made into a little bag to die for, just terrific.

  24. Very true sentiment and a very pretty bird.

    Love and hugs

  25. You were very productive this week! I like the natural subjects that you chose; these colors are well-represented in nature.
