Thanks to all who left encouraging messages on my blog or mailed me, with so many people thinking of me the OP just has to go well. I think I am just nervous as I have already had so many eye OPs, this will be the 7th one, and because of that it is a bit more risk. But on the other hand, 7 is a good number!
This is another page I made last week. I pasted old book paper and tissue tape onto the page, and cleaned my brush on it after using the rust and blue on other stuff. I added more colour with pastel chalks to fill in the gaps. I have once again used magazine cut-outs and various stuff out of my overfull bit boxes and from my (
rather very untidy) table. I had so much fun putting on layer after layer that I had problems to stop, but sooner or later I did. I am linking to Conny's Mix it Monthly - pets, and
Moo Mania- old book pages.
I received happy post today from Chrissie, who sent me a beautiful card with good wishes for my OP, and some postcards, which bring back happy memories for me, as they are places which I used to visit when I was in living in England. One card shows a painting from David Hockney, who I got to meet many years back when he had an exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, near where I was living at the time. Thanks for your kindness, Chrissie!
Chrissie made this postcard herself:
My room mate at college came from Durham, and while staying with her I visited the beautiful cathedral there:
I found this beautiful tree stump covered in moss and lichens on my way to visit the ducks and geese on Friday:
I had fun standing watching this beautiful pair at Schloss Kalkum. They ate my salad leaves, then hissed at me and turned their backs!
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by, I really appreciate your support!
