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.

ancient hieroglyphs

(a short, scheduled post, as i have visitors at home and no time to care for a blog post)
in Berlin i visited two Museums:
the one with the egyptian Exhibition and the Pergamon Museum with ancient middle east art.
(if i find time, photos will follow soon) 
of course i was tremendously fascinated to see the nefertiti bust,
here a Picture of it on a coffee mug:
and the Shops also provided stencils of the hieroglyphs of both cultures:
of course i had to buy them and make sun prints instantly
(no idea for further use so far, but time will show).
see you next week


  1. OMGosh, Johanna. I want stencils like that. They look perfect for sun dyeing, as well as using them in journals and altered books.

    Those wonderful mugs with the Nefertiti busts are gorgeous. Your trip to this museum was well worth the visit.

    Thanks for sharing Nefertiti and the stencils with us for T this soon to be Tuesday. Hope you are enjoying your time with your visitors.

  2. oh wow-what super stencils and how fabulous they turned out on your sun prints!! Sounds like some wonderful museum time and a wonderful take away too. Happy T day!

  3. I love those sun prints. They are really cool. I think you were smart to buy the stencils. Happy T Day. Hugs-Erika

  4. The stencils are so cool. Egypt fascinates me.Love the mugs too!Nefertiti rocks

  5. Hieroglyphen als Stencils, das nenne ich mal eine tolle Idee! Du hast bestimmt gejubelt... und logisch, gleich sunprints daraus gemacht. Der Museumsbesuch muss auch beeindruckend gewesen sein, die ägyptische Kunst hat mich auch schon immer fasziniert.
    Lieben Gruß-Ulrike

  6. TOLLE Schablonen -super ! Genieße Deine Gäste!
    Liebe Grüße

  7. Wow, your sun printing is so beautiful and perfect for Egyptian hieroglyphs as there were Egyptians that worshiped the sun too! Wishing you a Happy T day! J :-)

  8. Super cups and stencils.
    Happy T Day.

  9. Wunderbar und beeindruckend liebe Johanna. Wir waren letztes Wochenende im Museum für Naturkunde, ganz in der Nähe der Museumsinsel. Wir hätten uns doch mal treffen können Johanna. Wenn du mal wieder in Berlin bist ... ich würde mich sehr freuen. Ich denke mal, dass du wieder die verschiedensten Ideen mit den Stencils kreativ umsetzen wirst. Bin schon ganz gespannt. Viel Spaß mit deinem Besuch! Liebe Grüße sendet dir Gabi

  10. I love those Nefertite mugs. My parents had her on the wall of the lounge (quite large), so I grew up with her.The exhibition sounds interesting. Looking forward to the photos when you get round to posting them.
    The hierogliphs are fascinating. You did well to buy those stencils. You'll find use for them I'm sure.
    Happy T-Day,

  11. I have never made sunprints but i'd like to . What a great idea to use the stencils...Will the sunprint fade or will it stay that way ... I would love to see the Nefertiti bust too. So glad to see you this T day Hugs! deb

  12. Your growing sun print fabric collection is WOW! Super addition from what had to be an inspiring museum visit.
    Enjoy your guests.
    Focusing on blogging takes a lot of time, you did good scheduling a post.
    Happy T Day oxo

  13. The hieroglyph sun prints are wonderful. So many possibilities of what to use them for, either whole or cut up into small squares, with embroidery...

  14. Oh, I think I may need those stencils too!!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sun prints made with them.

    Happy T-day

  15. That mug would make a wonderful souvenir! Happy T Tuesday :)

  18. I would love to see photos. Imagine getting stencils of the hieroglyphs, great! Sun prints look fascinating.
    Hope you had (have) a good time with your visitors.

  19. Sorry I'm so late in visiting.
    Those stencils are so cool! I'd have bought them too!!

  20. I probably wouldn't have looked at those stencils twice, but you have found such a good use for them. You sun prints look amazing.
