Just a quick post, as I need to rest my eyes as much as possible this week after the OP.
Thanks again to all who left such encouraging good wishes on my blog, they were very much apprecated, I will be round to visit you all again next week when my reading ban has been lifted!
I made this journal page last week, after listening to a talk show on TV about masculine and feminine attributes, so this time I concentrated on the masculine ones, and wrote all the words I could think of. Perhaps you can suggest a few more? The background was a brush-wipe page using blues and rust, and the silhoutettes were painted with Viva Color Rust paint and outlined with white.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and kristin.
The lovely photos were taken on Monday, before I went into hospital, I love watching the beautiful sunrise each day from my window.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
Very masculine shapes and I love that you added the words inside the silhouettes. The blue and rust background is fabulous. Lovey sunrise photo. Rest those eyes like the docs tell you and have a good week yourself xxReplyDelete
Love this Val, and glad your eye is getting better. We were at my Mum's the past three days, she enjoyed seeing the kids, anyway! Hugs, SarahReplyDelete

Hi Valerie, Love your manly journal pages. The adjectives are perfect. I would add, kind, caring and dependable. Beautiful pics too. Take good care and rest your eyes. You deserve a nice break.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend.
Wonderful masculine journal page! Love the manly feel you have created, Valerie! Hugs and take good care!ReplyDelete
Great page with wonderful colors. I can see you created a couple of dream men - like dream on!ReplyDelete
The view from you balcony is spectacular and I don't think I have ever seen prettier skies. I keep looking at my skies but I swear Valerie they are not as pretty as yours.
Rest those eyes - you have a lot of catching up to do!!!
Dream men can be created just as you like!Delete
Wishing you well Valerie, your pages are very strong and bold.ReplyDelete
Lovely painting and fast healing on the eyes! Happy PPF!ReplyDelete

Sorry, Valerie I messed up my comment above. First of all, I hope you get better soon. Sending you lots and lots warm, loving and healing thoughts, beautiful and creative Lady. Lovely male project and stunning window from your balcony. thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Oh I love this piece so much....enjoyed reading what was on each image!! I think tender and ethical as well as thoughtful are important attributes!!ReplyDelete
That background is terrific, and you chose some great silhouettes. I wonder whether there's one male in the world who possesses alll these qualities ... ;-) He sounds too good to be true ☺ReplyDelete
I am sure not!Delete
I like the masculine take of your silhouettes, and the photograph is breathtaking. I hope your eyes will heal quickly. Blessings!ReplyDelete
A pensive journal page. I love the background. :)ReplyDelete
Great silhouettes, fabulous wording.. Hope you eyes heal quickly (((Hugs)))ReplyDelete
Love this!! I love the silhouette style with the brown and blue (one of my fave color combos). Super page!ReplyDelete
The two men look great on that background and with the writing!ReplyDelete
Ach ja :D
Ich hoffe deine Augen werden gut heilen!
Pretty skies in the pictures! I think all that it can also be women!ReplyDelete
Loved this page - and the outlines and words written in white really pop off the page. Glad you are on the mend - resting the eyes is a hard thing - we use them so much to enjoy our time - art making, reading, etc. Hoping for a quick healing.ReplyDelete
