TMTA - "Hands"


The challenge for TMTA this week is to make an ATC featuring the idea of "hands" and it was stated on their website, "In my opinion, hands always are a fantastic and compelling motive . ." I think that's so true! Our hands can say so much about us, whether we use them to craft, to gesture, to caress a child's face, or to offer a hand to help someone who's fallen. We have so many uses and expressions for our hands! In this old photo of silent film star Theda Bara, my eyes were drawn to her hand and the way she's holding it; it looks so elegant. I thought this would fit the challenge.
