Rainy Day


This month the theme of Art-Journal-Journey   is “Silence”.
For me a rainy day can mean silence. I like it if the raindrops fall on a window, a tent-roof, umbrella or only my hood and drown out all noises of the human daily life.
This picture is my attempt to create a surrealistic work because I do love surrealistic artists like René Magritte.

In diesem Monat ist „Stille“ das Thema von Art-Journal-Journey .
Für mich kann Ruhe auch ein Regentag bedeuten. Mir gefällt es, wenn die Regentropfen auf ein Fenster, ein Zeltdach, Regenschirm oder auch meine Kapuze fallen und damit alle Geräusche des menschlichen Alltags übertönen.
Da ich insbesondere surrealistische Künstler wie René Magritte liebe, ist dies mein Versuch eine surrealistische Arbeit zu schaffen.

It´s a String Thing #24

This week Adele´s challenge is to use string #24 and five tangle patterns beginning with the letter “Y”:
Yabbut by Margaret Bremner, CZT
Yang by Genevieve Crabe, CZT
Yew-dee by Peg Farmer, CZT
Y-ful Power by Shoshi
Yincut an official Zentangle® pattern 

You can find them on http://tanglepatterns.com/. For more information please see here on Adele´s blog.
For my tile I used all five tangles. Yabbut, Yang, Yew-dee and Yincut are grid based tangles. The basis of Y-ful is a hexagonal grid. First I had to familiarize myself with all five tangles. For me it was a real challenge to use so many grid based tangles for my tile. Usually I use two grid based tangles at most. My favorite tangles are Y-ful and Yew-dee

“I´m Smiling on the Inside” - Challenge # 151


The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 151: Sting Theory: Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day

Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day is an event which is celebrated globally each year on January 24th- the birth date of Professor Paul Julius Möbius, the doctor who first diagnosed the Möbius Syndrome in 1888. The aim of Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day is to raise awareness about this rare condition and to educate others about it.
Möbius syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that is present at birth.  It primarily affects the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, leaving those with the condition unable to move their faces (they can’t smile, frown, suck, grimace or blink their eyes) and unable to move their eyes laterally.
For more information on Möbius Syndrome and Möbius Syndrome Awareness Day please visit http://www.moebiussyndrome.com/ and Möbius-Syndrom Deutschland e.V. (“Lachen mit dem Herzen”; German Website).

To raise awareness for this disorder is this week's Challenge.  I decided to use the Möbius Syndrome Foundation's logo for my work. The logo is so beautiful and I like it so much.

This week the challenge is to use string #23 and tangle patterns that begin with the letters “Ba…” found on http://tanglepatterns.com/For more information please see here on Adele´s blog.
For my tile I used the tangles Bandola, Barberpole, Bask-It, Basketweave and Bateek

Sleeping Birdy


This time the theme for the Moo-Mania-Challenge is “Birds”. First I create a little Moo. A Moo is a little card sized 2.8 x 7 cm (1.1 x 2.8 inches). Really a little card!
Now my little “Sleeping Birdy”-Moo-Card is placed on a bigger card.
This card goes well to the theme “Silence” of Art-Journal-Journey Art-Journal-Journey   this month. 
And because it´s a new friday I link this post to  Paint Party Friday

Das Thema vom Moo-Mania-Challenge lautet diesmal „Vögel“. Als erstes gestaltete ich zu diesem Thema ein Moo. Ein Moo ist eine sehr kleine Karte mit den Maßen 2,8 x 7 cm. Wirklich sehr klein!
Jetzt hat meine kleine „Sleeping Birdy“ Moo-Karte einen Platz auf eine größere Karte gefunden.
Sie passt gut zum Thema „Stille“ von Art-Journal-Journey . Und da es bald wieder Freitag ist, ist dies auch ein Beitrag für Paint Party Friday .
