Left handed beads of Courage.
This month the Diva has been having guest challengers because her son has had some major surgery. I drew him some beads of courage for all his bravery.
Our guest blogger this week was Elisa Murphy, CZT 15. Here is my quote of her challenge for us:
I really was challenged by this tile. I started with the larger circles around the edge with the idea of Beads of Courage. I discovered that drawing circles with my left hand is a very interesting experience so I drew more and more circles. Many of them I did not draw very well, but it was quite a challenge and kept my attention. I pretty quickly realized that I would not finish the tile this week if I kept doing circles so I added the X in the middle and thought that it would be interesting and perhaps easier to do Hollibaugh in the lower center. Wow. Another learning experience. I really had to get into the Zen of drawing each line. Filling in the background also turned out to be a surprisingly difficult task. I would have random jerky lines that would go places I did not want them. Each individual tangle pattern presented new curiosities and perspectives. There was some Yuck in my life this week so this was a fabulous parallel. I have been working on my gratitude journal, but I’m a little behind and I hope to post tomorrow. I love to find the Beads of Courage and the wonderful new perspectives that can come out of yuck. I hope you find gems in whatever life hands you today, too.
