Journal 52 week 10 Art for a Cause

This week's prompt: Art for a Cause really inspired a lot of people, and a lot of people did the pink ribbon for cancer.  It was the first thing that crossed my mind too, but I ALWAYS create for cancer in October.  I remembered that purple is the color for domestic violence, but wondered if it also used for other awareness's, so I looked it up on the web and was so surprised at HOW MANY causes this purple ribbon is associated with, and how many that have touched my life. I wrote all the causes one leg of the ribbon, just to keep them in my memory (I'm of the senior population that has to work like this ya know....LOL)

I know the scan turned the ribbon a cross between black and blue, but it is purple.  All, but the white is acrylic paint.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment, love to read them.  I will always TRY my hardest to return the visit.

  1. This is a wonderful idea. I love it.
    Please forgive my lack of commenting lately, I will try and get back on track soon,

  2. What a neat idea to list all the causes. I didn't realize that the colored ribbons might have more than one meaning, but why not... there are lots of causes and not so many colors (without getting all artsy on it, that's not red it's cadmium)

  3. Not sure how I missed this one, but I really, really love all the things this color ribbon represents.
