Asemic Writing

I think it was Dina Wakley who introduced me to the term "Asemic Writing". But as a lover of handwriting, handlettering and calligraphy, I´ve always loved the look of letters as a graphic element. For my first card above I´ve used a stamp from Dina and another one from Darkroom Door, but though I liked the result, I wanted to go forward and made this second card below using the same border from Darkroom Door but added my own handwriting and some Dada Stamps from Heindesign, and I think this tells the story much better: Asemic  Writing is about the graphic design of letters, and the concept of Dada is to tell nothing serious, so I´ve brought all this together. I hope that my samples inspire you to show us your own interpretation of this theme! I´ve picked "Asemic Writing" as this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge and can´t wait to see your interpretation of this theme!

On my Way

I don´t have a driving license and have never been on a plane, so I have to take the train when I travel and use my bicycle for any trips I don´t use the bus for. My hometown is known for its many bikes, and in fact there are more bikes than inhabitants here.

For my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Bicycles" I have used a background made with the gelli plate, added a strip of a map and rubber stamps from Heindesign and Klartext.

Night Owl


This is a confession - yes, I am a night owl. As a teenager, I made my homework for school around 10 p.m. (thanks to my parents who didn´t care as long as I´ve been good at school), then later I wrote my final thesis at the university mostly between 10 and 12 p.m., and today, I still love to create at night - while I have to get up at 5.30 a. m. during the week ... maybe you can imagine how much I love weekends!

For this week´s Owl themed card for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge I´ve used stamps from Visible Image, Distress Mica Sprays and some embossing powder.
