More journal pages

Hi everybody, hope you are all fit! It's under three weeks to Christmas now, so hope you are all well on the way with your preparations. I took all my letters to the post office yesterday. There is a new lady there, friendly, helpful and always admiring what I have made....wonders never cease! She is evidently from a different planet than the last one was!

I started making some more postcards, which I haven't finished yet, but I did finish my journal pages; once again with moon and stars, which seem to be fascinating me just now. I did the background with water soluble oil pastels, painted the moon and the silhouettes with acryl paints, and used pastel chalks to do the shading on the moon and round the moon dancers.




Have a great day you all, whatever you are up to; take care and thanks for dropping by!

  8. Hi Valerie! First, I love your journal pages, and the dancers by the light of the moon!.. But I had to laugh about that postal worker again! I went just recently to my own post office to mail out an ATC card I made for a swap, and there our own crabby postal worker was; but THIS time she was all smiles, and so friendly with everyone in line before me.. I couldn't understand WHY! And THEN, I saw this other woman sitting on a stool nearby, just watching, and immediately I wondered if this MUST be her district supervisor!!! You see, THEN this jovial personality I'd never seen before made SENSE to me now! (0; It's either that, or I'm hoping she's training someone new to take her place!... Have a great day! ~tina
