"The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have faith, and faith is to have wings. I added Nailheads to one of the bicycles and to the top of the page.

For these pages I decided to keep them in a red/black/white theme. I also decided to use some of my washi tapes on each page. The stamp I used on this page is by Deep Red. I have used lots of rubber stamps over the past 20 years and I am convinced that red rubber makes the best impressions. Now, I love my clear acrylic stamps and I have many wood mounted rubber stamps that I use quite often. I just lean toward the red rubber because of the detail. Isn't this lady just fabulous?!!! The quote here is: "each day has limitless possibilities and adventure ahead for you". I thought that just suited this image. I used red acrylic paint and brushed several swipes across the page leaving lots of white space. The writing is much more difficult to read here that IRL. I used two types of washi tape on this: wide red floral tape and the black/white lines tape. My accents are black Nailheads.
The red splotches on this page were made with left-over paint I had on a piece of palette paper. I simply laid it on this page and gently pulled it across the page. Next I used a ruler and a black pen to make the lines on the page. This image is also by Deep Red rubber stamps. I stamped her on scrap, cut her out and adhered her to the page. I used a dictionary definition for "love" to add to this page. The stamped sentiment is from Cat's Life Press. I added two strips of red "ruler" washi tape side by side down the left side of the page. I also added black Nailheads to this page.
The bird on wheels image is also from Cat's Life Press. I used red washi tape with a musical score across it for the bird to "sit" on. I also cut out a bird from some red scrap paper (with guitars on it) and placed it on some definition washi tape. I stamped Song Bird using my Image Tree antique alphabet. I drew wavy lines to write my quote on. I love this quote! (but I'm a "quote fanatic"!) LOL "The woods would be silent if no birds sang except those that sing best."
