Create your own....

Made this on canvas.  I gessoed the background and then applied purple paint to it.
I used a Julie Nutting stamp...stamped on a newspaper pattern, then colored parts in with distress markers.  I attached a handmade ribbon flower to her hair.  I punched out several stars from patterned paper, then I used word labels - create your own, memories, friends, dreams, laughter, imagination, inspiration, hope & courage....within the stars.  I also added the words embark on adventure everyday to the lower right hand side.   I then attached two strings of stars with a brad.

I am entering this into:
