When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over

For Illustration Friday - "Sail".

Hi Carra. Love this - so bold. I'm loving the new collage work you're doing and can't wait to see more. I also just wanted to let you know that I listed you as one of my favourite blogs, and am passing the Brillante Web award on to you. Stop by my blog to collect the award.

Laura: Thank you! I've decided on collage as my challenge for the fall :) I feel like the glee of a child with my scissors, can of glue and all those wonderful materials to work with :) Thank you also for the award, I am honoured.
