She waited for the post

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

I’ve been taking Mystele’s bonus course “Simple Visual Linking” on Community Thrive.  I love her work and she always inspires me with her process.  I thought I would combine it with the Postal theme at Art-Journal-Journey and come up with a page to practice my “linking” skills.  I took some progress shots along the way so you could see where I started and where my process led me.  She waited for the post…


Here is the final page and the step out is below.

    Thanks for the progress shots…. always interesting.

  2. Gosh, this is terrific.
    I seriously love it, but it is a bit worrying too – why is she looking so anxious with her crossed arms? what is she waiting for? and I also have to laugh – look at her hair and purple nose.
    and the title “She waited for the post” and the post box is sitting beside her like a little post robot. And the addition of the washi tape and postage stamp….
    There’s a lot in this.

    She is worried she won’t get any mail!!! That is me! xo

  4. We all just want to get happy mail, that’s all. She is planted in waiting. Reminds me she has curlers in her hair.

  5. the postman must be late and she has to leave for an appointment! grr !

  6. Love seeing the process. It is fascinating to see the choices made along the way. <3 the colors and how they work together.

  7. Boy, does she look impatient. She must be getting something good. Maybe some fabric dye from Dharma Trading. Ha-ha! I’ll have to check out this class.

  8. Nice work, she must be waiting for some BIG news. Love all the details, Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey, hugs, Valerie

  9. She is so lovely and I so hope she gets her post soon!
