Beads of Courage ZIA


Diva challenge #271 

This is my first official tangle challenge from the Iamthedivaczt  blog. It’s a fun one to try and has the bonus of being inspired by a great cause.

The ZIA challenge: Paint splotch the 3.5 tile and tangle beads:) I used:

  • Water color pencils for paint splotches
  • 01 Sakura black micron
  • Gelly Roll gold pen

About Beads of Courage…

I am just learning about Beads of Courage. The Diva, Laura, shares her poignant family stories on her website (, along with her creative and inspiring weekly tangle challenges. It feels like participating in this tangle challenge is a supportive cheer for this good cause that helps children cope with treatments for their health conditions. Beads of Courage: What a beautiful thing to acknowledge courage, give hope, and support to kids (and their families) as they tackle the personal challenges of illness.

Also, what a generous and beautiful thing, Laura, the Diva does every week to inspire art and creativity! Since I am “newer” to the Zentangle method, weekly challenges at once inspire and scare me, but I know I will be back to try some more.
