She Flew With Her Own Wings

When Take a Word issued the challenge of “wings”, I immediately thought of Amelia Earhart.  I’ve long admired her gutsy joy-of-life and ‘get it done’ attitude. 


"...decide...whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying...."

"Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done." 
The background paper was handmade using a stencil and chalks.  The photo of Amelia came from the ‘net, as did the compass star where I added the words “She flew with her own wings”.  The wings are a bronzed plastic self stick that I found at Hobby Lobby. 
This collage responds to the “Wings” challenge at Take a Word and to a past challenge of “Journal a Quote” at Three Muses.



  1. What a strong collage, like the lady herself! Love the elements you chose to combine!

  2. What very nice work..she is one of my special heroines too:)
