Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul

I LoVe this image of 'Midge'  but was a bit worried that it would be hard to use differently to Dina Wakley whose work I love and who uses it so distinctively.

But I just worry too much!!  Playing around with an image, with your own collection of stamps and inks, means you end up using it in your own style!  After making a few tags recently I decide on an envelope as a base.  It may end up as a page in a newly created journal,

... or on a journal page!  I quite like it with all that white background :)

Stampotique Stamps Used
Upward Bound (I used the balloon string behind Midge)
Journey Collage

Love that you have used Midge in a very trendy piece rather than retro art. It shows her wonderful versatility!! Very crafty how you created your sentiment! Bravo, Sarah!
