As the Flag goes by


Don't know about you, but I miss the parades of my childhood.  There was plenty of reason to celebrate hero's and she-roes this time of year.  Today I am recalling standing on the corner, proudly waving my little flag as the parade marches by.  I used an extra paint brush to create my pole, verdigris buttons and bits of red glittery ribbon and paper ribbon.  The woman saluting image was inked with Memento lady bug and Paris dusk.  I added stickles in lace to the stars!

Artistic Outpost's newest release celebrates our women 'she-roes'.  Be sure to have a look at last years' Hero's set while you are there...that's where you'll find the BEST flags image, IMHO!

Love your home made little flag Susan and the saluting woman on it - I too enjoyed the wonderful parades of my youth sitting on the curb waving my flag - with a balloon tied around my wrist!
