Let Your Imagination Fly - this is in my Life&Loves journal. I have a feeling I'll probably do some more tinkering some time down the line... when is 'finished' really FINISHED, lol?
Here, I've used vintage lace on both page edges (dipped in tea to 'antique' it a little) and the In Flight phrase is a stamp image by Tattered Angels, from their butterfly scrapbooking set. I've used Stickles in Ruby Slippers over the top of the letters - lush! The phrases are vintage text cut from an old copy of Peter Pan, gesso over the top. I've drawn back into the bird with a fine pen, and doodled in some flowers etc.

Finally I added all the lettering by hand. Hated the lettering in the background as it was too dominant, so out came the gesso and then the acrylic (white) added with a sponge and partially blotted off. For the word 'soar' I used a metallic pen in blue, then drew a border around to finish.
Hope you like it!
