Beloved owls...

This is an image made with my new owl stamp. Not a small one this time because I would love to use it also on fabric. 

You have to know that this image comes from the fabric of the bed linen I had as a child and which were also used by my sibling. 

I nearly forgot it but my sister gave me some of the cut bed linen (don't worry, there is another one with different colours in the memory collection of my parents :) ). Strange how something which was so ordinary now changes to something so special! I just had to smile and I'll make a cuddle pillow just for myself with the fabric! 

I just made a foto with my digi and printed the image in black and white. From this print I cut out on of the owls. I went over the back with a pen to create a kind of copy paper for image transfer.

If you put this side over the rubber and trace the lines of the image they'll go over the rubber. Perfect for carving! But be careful, never ever use too much pressure or you may scratch the rubber. And of course I also made a stamp for the bigger star! 

I found the design for the bed linen in a brown and white combination at smafolk (a danish design, they have also beautiful kids clothes!). But not with other colours (the one stored is green :) )... It must be purchased at the early eighties... or even earlier? So if any of you find one of the other coloured owl fabrics and / or bed linen... please, please, please.... send me a piece! 

The owl would be sweet for cards and tag... but also for fabric! (Okay, my fabric stamp pad is nearly empty...)

I love it!

Just the stuff lying aroung...

Another picture (collage) I made (also while being on formentera). 

As the title of this blog entry says: I made this with stuff I had at hand at that moment. I liked the picture which I used as the basic. From a spanish (or english? don't really remember) magazine which all family members already read or just looked through... I cut out some leafs also from a magazine and a butterfly... some text... 

Okay, you see it. Or maybe you can see it if you look at the picture in more detail (just click on it, this time I used a higher resolution for uploading than usually!). Because I painted over all the stuff so often that it is not always to see where I glued one piece over another one ^^

The text is a kind of wordplay in german... but not really to translate. You could read it as "to know science" or more "knowledge creates knowledge"... (and for the german readers, yes, it is not perfect, in one case a f is missing... but still, I like what you can read in this :) ).

Wissenschaft - Science
Wissen - knowledge
schaffen (schafft) - to create
wissen - to know

And also, yes, everything in this picture has a reason, even the number ;)

Some strange fish...

As I said there is still some stuff I made while being on formentera. Like this little fish! Just a fast sketch with coloured pencils and a black fine liner... but I like him :)

A little teaser...

...because at the moment there are millions of small projects (next to the real relevant work stuff ^^) and non of it seems to get finished in some time although I love them all!

But this one should be the next to be finished, therefore a little pic :)

And also as a little life sign from me ^^

Trees growing on walls!

It was already dark outside... but I just had to take a picture! This wall is a direct neighbor to the house I am living in... but I never really looked up the wall before!

Inspirations: Critter (Formentera II)

Look at the beauties!

I am so proud of some of the pictures I was able to snap this summer.

Little dragons, little jewels, sparkling in the sun. 

In blue and green and turqoise...

I have a lot more pictures... some of them below because I love how you can see the scales, how they looked at me and the camera (I was maybe 20 cm away from them, lying on the ground ^^), how cute their long tongue is... and how the try to lift their legs, especially the back ones, because it was so hot! 

I just love them!

The pityuse lizards are a species (with a lot of subspecies) special to Ibiza and Formentera (Podarcis pityusensis).

Look in the eyes!

A little card with an octopus image...

Just black and white... but with a little special: Look in the eyes!

Maybe you should click on the picture to get a better view :)

With tiny drops of a 3D glue I created the lenses of the eyes. 

Hu... all the possibilities! 

Mh... I wrote this blog entry some time ago... some months ago.. seems I forgot to post it ^^
