Our fabulous challenge this week from the Zentangle Diva was to create something representative of Hope in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. I loved what Laura wrote:
“But Breast Cancer is not the only reason to have hope. i think each of us has had a situation in their lives when they felt like giving up, and for whatever reason – they didn’t. That gives me hope.”
Thanks Laura for the challenge and the inspiration this week. This image of HOPE goes out to all my friends and family members who are struggling or who are survivors. I celebrate all of you this week and no that no matter the challenges you are facing at home or at work, you will pull through!
I chose to do 3 dimensional letters. I am working on a series of holiday cards and had also done the word hope on one of those but my daughter and I have been having fun with letters recently and this seemed like a great choice for this challenge. She helped paint the chipboard letters pink with acrylic paint. The letters came from Hobby Lobby and were on sale for about .50 cents each. I love a good craft sale! I will probably seal this with a clear acrylic finish to give them a bit of shine, too!
It was fun working on the letter shapes and using the shape itself as the guide for the string. Love my Sakura Micron pens that will write on anything!
I also want to say thanks to Rick and Maria of Zentangle for their leadership, passion and vision. I am officially an addict and a constantly refreshed artist, thanks to you.
