How Does Your Garden Grow?

Today, we´ve had a few rays of sunshine in the afternoon, and if you close your eyes, sometimes the air begins to feel like spring ... just the right time to join a Garden themed ATC swap!

Desperate Housewives, Episode 3748

For a city girl like me, the vision of neighbours watching each and every one of your steps and actions is horrible. But the life of this lady in this spread for my altered book "Untold Stories" turned out even worse: She once dreamed of a quiet life with her husband and daughter in a cute little house, but now her husband has left her, and her dream has turned into a personal nightmare under constant supervision of her neighbours ...

Wasted Life

Another digital collage with the HouseHold kit mentioned below - this quote could be hanging on my wall!

Spring-Cleaning

Did you know that I hate housework, especially cleaning? And above all I don´t have a bit of talented for doing it ... seems like making a mess is much more my business ;-) And I even hate to clean up my "art table" because I don´t find anything when it´s all clean and tidy!
Maybe that was the inspiration for my digital collage playing with the new "House Hold" kit by Tumble Fish Studio!?

Some Fish


A few years ago when I was in Berlin I took this photo of a beautiful window that I´ve now used with Nancy Donaldson´s great encaustic textures (you´ll find them here if you want to play).
(The first picture is the original photo, the second one shows the result after using three different encaustic textures.)

I´ve had fun playing with some Tumble Fish digital kits today ...

Imagine If ...

... you could take a master class with any artist you know, dead or alive, who would it be and why? This has been one of the most difficult questions in Seth Apter´s survey "The Pulse" this year, and I had a hard time with my decision. It could have been Sandro Botticelli, Adolph Menzel, or Horst Janssen, artists whose work I admire, but I´ve chosen someone else. Just have a look at Seth´s blog today to find out the answer.

Call it Steampunk!

Whenever I´ve been working digitally for a while, I can´t wait to get my fingers inky again and spend some time with my stamps! So here are my ATCs for a Steampunk swap I´m in.

Texture Playing


Here´s my entry for Nancy´s latest texture challenge. I´ve used five different textures here. The quote is by Jonathan Swift. (The picture below is the original photo of course.)
