This has been a difficult month.
Three friends and a relative diagnosed with cancer.
The passing of a family friend from cancer.
The passing of a friend's parent after a long battle.

What is going on?

I pray for hope.  Recovery.  Complete recovery for our loved ones and others fighting this nasty disease.

I wanted to write a reflection of the last few weeks on a tag to include in my art journal. I used Stampotique's hope definition in black dye ink and my bird in a cage is stamped and colored with Copics.   The image is purposely offset for some writing.

The tag background is a combination of acrylics and dye inks with Bic white out pen.
I colored strips of muslin with my Inktense blocks to create coordinating "ribbons."  Once dried, the fabric was torn and attached to the tag. 



  1. I'm so sorry to hear you've had such upsetting news recently, sending love. Your tag is beautiful and I expect what you write on it will be too xxx

  2. This is a beautiful tag Kaz and I'm so sorry about all your friends and their relatives. Cancer is a %itch

  3. Ohmy... that's a lot to take. It's such a terrible disease. Hope your friends will beat it. The tag is gorgeous. XOXO

  4. So sorry for your loss. Big hugs xx
    Love your tag
