Is it Elegance or Grunge?

It may even be both - either way it is my latest page for Gill's theme at Art Journal Journey 'Elegance and Grunge'!
A Paper Artsy Infusions background (you know I love these!)some stencilling, stamping, spattering and lots of bits from one of my scrap bags! The leaf is from Lin Brown's set ELB29 

The quote - from the well known song Dream the Impossible Dream sums up my unfulfilled dream to be a ballet dancer.(It was never going to happen!)
I would also like to enter this page in the challenge at A Vintage Journey - for Jenny's choice of theme Use a Quote. 

Thanks for looking, Chris

This is so romantic and so BEAUTIFUL Chris! I am sorry to hear that you dream was unfulfilled -
but I guess the unfulfilled dreams are the best ones!!!
Thank you very much for yet another fantastic page to Gill's theme!
Happy weekend to you!

I can see you being a ballet dancer. OK, I have a very vivid imagination.

This is a beautiful entry, and I personally think it looks more like elegance than grunge. I love the lace and swirly cardboard.

Wonderful journal page, love the depth you have managed to get in it. I tried Ballet lessons but very quickly realised I had two left feet lol.

Fabulous journal page! I love your quote and the image! Ha! Ha! I love your dream...it's good to have them. 'A goal without a plan is just a dream' I was always told, and my dream (shhhh, don't tell anyone!) was to run in the Olympics! Didn't happen! Thank you for sharing this with us at A Vintage Journey for our Use a Quote challenge! Hugs!
