Diva's Challenge #319: Beads of Courage

This week, the Diva asked us to BEad INSPIRED by the Beads of Courage organization, an arts in medicine program that helps kids with serious illnesses tell the story of their medical journey by making necklaces with colored beads that represent different medical procedures they have undergone.  (On their website, I was pleased to see that they are present in the two major children's hospitals near me.) Laura organizes a color fun run fundraiser every year, with all volunteers and all the proceeds going to Beads of Courage. She is a diva in so many ways!

I used bubble wrap to apply the watercolor and remind me of beads and the splashes of color you get during a color run.
Have you ever done a color run?  Is there a Beads of Courage hospital near you?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!


  1. I love that you used bubble wrap! Fabulous idea! And your tile looks very fresh and fun. Great Tripoli and beads! :)

  2. This is so pretty! I love what you did with the bubble wrap😍

  3. Lovely! Great idea to use the bubble wrap to add the watercolors.

  4. How pretty the bubble wrap watercolor beads look as a backdrop to the nice tangles, Jennifer. Wish my body would still allow me to do a color run.

  5. The Bubble Wrap tile is beautiful and Tripoli ... stunning.


I appreciate your comments and suggestions!
