PoP Hand

is the optional theme over at Path of Positivity!  This journal page in my faith journal highlights women in my family from my grandmother through to my grand-girl!  I'm not really sure any of us would be considered a "diadem" but we are most certainly a "force to be reckoned with"!  They come no stronger than these women who set out to push the limits and keep pushing far past what they (we) should!  Yeah, stubborn, too!  

We certainly are NOT a family of perfect women!  We are go getters who set goals and constantly move in that direction sometimes unintentionally causing storms in the peace and "sinning boldly", but we do not cease until the job is complete.  

Yes, we do fail, but it doesn't stop us from trying again.  Do we know when to "throw in the towel"?  No....usually not.  Does it cause us pain....usually does!  Do we give in when we know persistence it's futile?  Not usually!   

No, we don't make sense, but it is who we are and I have to admire this lineage of enduring women!

So.... here's a little about this piece.
I printed this nostalgic image, Hand from Scribbles Designs
 and Copic colored the image.  I did add some gel pen and a pearl.  

I ripped the page, inked it, and added some lace underneath as well as some around the pictures.  Gems and a bow finish it off!  

This tribute is off to the following challenges:
