Welcome to
Monica Johansson and NatureFootstep.com
I am interested in nature photography and photo art and travels
as much as I can to find new areas to document.
I have many blogs and below you find links to them.

I´m moving

 Click image to enlarge!
From tomorrow, 231001, I will move this art blog to my Photography and Photoart blog. 

 Why?? Well, it seems the blogosphere is shrinking by the week. And for me, in principle, Photography and Art are the same thing.

I might change the name to "NatureFootstep Photography and Art"

Smokey face

Today Rains promt is smoke!
I was working with smoke a couple of years ago. I had some sticks that created smoke when lit. 
Both shots are digital of course. And manipulated a bit in Photoshop. 


Dancing smoke!

My granddaughter with a crown of smoke. 


For Nicoles Friday Face Off  I draw a girl on a iceceam stick. And an Acorn!

Face and fungi

The face in the boardwalk
Created with a photo and a painted face.

Muchroom forest
fly agaric, shaggy ink cap, chanterelle 

I had some fun with clay lately. As it is fall and mushroom times in the forest that is what I created. 
To get a forest floor I took one of my older "forest" artwork.

Art this week

 Click image to enlarge!
Texture Forest!

Last week I was writing about homemade texture. Well I also had some texture Effect paste from CreaBox. So I played around with it. I had painted this A3 background the otherday. As I wanted to see what the different five pastes looked and felt like I created this. 
When I watched it in the evening I saw a forest. 
So, a forest it is!

A face in clay
A week ago I visited our Arthall. I was talking to the woman who work there. She asked me, do you want some clay?? We had a workshop and there is a lot left. I can´t keep it as it will dry. 
Well, I took it and here is my first work of art (?) in clay. I was not thinking Face, it just became one!

Where in the world can you read this? Answer is Sweden!
For face and journal!
