Blessings By the Handful


Can I just say I love my FB group Tangle All Around!!! They never let me down and for the past two weeks our I Dare You! prompt has been tangled hands. Those you see in the photo just above are mine. I did them a couple years ago in a special journal I am using to collect the hand tracings of my family. And I thought our group might like to do something similar. They did not let me down! Sit back and get ready to be blown away as I share with you our Blessings By the Handful!

Looking at all these beautiful tangled hands you will notice many different styles. Some artists used color, some stayed traditional with black and white, Saf used henna ink in creating tattoos. Some artists are more advanced, some are new tanglers. Some artworks are very detailed and ornate, some are more basic. Some are drawn on professional art paper, some are drawn in notebooks. And you know what? Every single one of them is absolutely beautiful! We hold such a legacy in our hands, how could we not share that with you? So, from my family at Tangle All Around we hope you enjoy our artwork and are touched by the many blessings we wanted to share with you. You are blessed, too! You can create your own legacy hand tangle today. And I would love to see it if you do.
