Diva Challenge #319 – BEad INSPIRED

Tile for Diva Challenge #319
BEad INSPIRED: Echoism, Beadlines, Eke

The call for this week’s Diva challenge is to take inspiration from Beads of Courage in creating a tile (visit the link to learn more about it). This program gives children with chronic or serious illnesses a way to chronicle their “medical journey”. They are given different types of beads which symbolize various aspects of their specific course of care. Beads of Courage is clearly something that is near and dear to Laura’s heart. What a wonderful way to honor this “arts in medicine” program for children by representing it through Zentangle art!

My first thought was to draw Beadlines to represent the beads, but after thinking about it some more I wanted to use Echoism — so I ended up combining the two tangles. For the finishing touches I added a frame of Eke and shading.

  1. I love the simple elegance of your tile Sidney! It makes me feel pretty and feminine just looking at it! Thank you!

  2. I’ve looked at quite a few of the entries for this Challenge and I notice that the “simple” ones, which of course aren’t really simple at all, are the effective ones. Just a couple of patterns, a gentle string and some very subtle shading. Very, very nice.
