Faith and a Moon


dance by the light of the moon

This week's Take A Word is Moon -for which I did a drawing. I am in love with my new Pebbles, Inc chalks. I'm not sure if this picture is really doing it justice- can't really see all the shading- why do some things just look so much better in person?

And the Inchy By Inch theme was Faith. I used a picture of my Mom from 1959 at her Catholic Confirmation.

Perfect choice for the Faith inchie.

I looked up Faith Hope & Charity who were saints & there are charms to signify this - a heart a cross & an anchor - I tried to find something to represent this but couldn't find a small enough anchor !!

Absolutely beautiful and a great example of less is more.
Your girl is exquisite and I love the fact that she dominates the two pages in a very elegant way. I love the creativity which makes it such an original piece.

Thanks for joining in the challenge this week!
