BEad Inspired - Challenge #319

This week's challenge was very heart-felt. We were told about a program that helps kids who have ongoing, chronic illness. This program lets these kids get different colored beads for each medical visit or procedure they undergo. Gradually they collect a longer and longer string of beads that tells their story. "I saw the doctor and I got a shot and then I  had to stay in the hospital and the respiratory therapist came to see me every day..." Each of those is a bead. Se we were asked to BEad Imspired. 

I went hunting around Tangle Patters and rediscovered MaryHill from Betsy Wilson, CZT. This was one of her variations where MaryHill is ruffled up into a big blossom and decorated with beads. I added Beadline for more decoration and more beads. Thank you Betsy for these ideas, I loved your Zentangle so much i wanted to draw it.

Last week I did the challenge and posted it here but somehow it never posted on If you have time to take a look, click on "Dyptich - Challenge #318" on the right, of maybe just scroll down.

I am getting very excited. I leave for CZT training #28 in just 10 days. Let me know if any of you are also going.


  1. Ah, this is such a relaxing tile to look at.

  2. I had forgotten about Maryhill. It really looks lovely with the addition of beads!

  3. I love this Mary! Like Michele said... fluid. Reminds me of water ripples, bubbles, and sand! I must really want it to be summer! Lol! :)

  4. I hope you have a wonderful time at CZT - I'm full of envy. Your tile is a really imaginative use of patterning and shade.

  5. Very pretty tile! I also love the fluidity of your MaryHill.

  6. It's a very 3-D and beautiful.
