And this past weekend I took a Catherine Jordan workshop that I have been wanting to do for ages but the stars had not aligned before. It was everything I had hoped for and I had a fabulous time with great people and an excellent teacher. She's a CZT too with basic Zentangle classes as well as some creative classes combining Zentangle and stitching.

This week's Diva Challenge was to take inspiration from the Beads of Courage, the Color Run, or whatever gives you Courage. The Diva mentioned the #HeftyHack technique for coloring a background so I had to give it a shot. There were some very old Primacolor Scholar markers kicking around my studio so I used those. And when I say old, I mean over 10 years old. One of the purples has turned brown! But they were useful for this project and I was happy with the resulting background. I chose Helix since the pattern already looks like a string of beads and tangled away.

I'm looking to forward to seeing what other people have done with this challenge.
