Challenge 42 - Hope

October is Breast Cancer Awareness monthThe challenge this week from Laura at I am the Diva, is to create a tile or ZIA inspired by hope -- however this applies to your life.  I've had many friends and relatives who have battled cancer.  Some of them won that battle, and some didn't.  I think hope is essential to anyone battling this disease (or any life threatening disease)...and my hope that a cure is found someday soon!

Here's my ZIA for this challenge:


The finished size of this is about 5x5 inches.  I've been doing a lot of tangling in the evenings while watching television with my hubby.  Here's a few of my newest drawings.


I love how this one turned out...lots of depth...and very clean lines.


I just finished this one, Lots and lots of lines....


 My friend looked at this one and said it made her think of under the sea...maybe all the "bubbles"?


I was inspired by a piece I saw here... I love the feathery edges on the big heart!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your fabulous comments!!  Until next time...

♥ Hugs! ♥

you put so much detail into your tangles, #1 top shelf, amazing actually. I think I am going to be much more careful in the future and aspire to have mine look just a little more detailed. thanks for the inspiration.

just a first attempt.
As for the easel card and posting, you are not alone, I don't think anyone outside crafting knows how these cards work! Not sent one to anyone so far for that reason!

Your tangles are beautiful! I particularly like the mandala - I've recently gotten into them myself, and I feel so satisfied when they're done! Wonderful!
