But it is a picture, for me I think, inspired by my printerest surfing today...scrapbookin g papers, sewn, freehand lettering and a stamped bird..

the writing is a little small, so in case you cannot read it, it says 'It's OK if you've got to travel alone sometimes, you are brave enough. '

it is hard to see, but the wires are machine stitched in black thread

comments and criticism welcome..

It's beautiful! I love the saying, and I love the symbolism.

I hope you made this for you as you prepare for your daughter to leave the nest. Or is it for her? You may both need one. Smiley

I really like it. It looks great and even if the machine stitching is not really visible on the picture I can imagine how it looks in "real life".
And I really like your composition with this nice and cute background and than this "hard technical" powerline and than again this small free bird. It's great.
Thank you for sharing.
