Kraft+ August Challenge

So the Kraft+ challenge this month was definitely one that had me put my thinking cap on. Here is the challenge:

Now I do like to doodle, but I don't really do it very often and certainly not as detailed and intricate as these examples show. So to say this was a challenge is probably a bit of an understatement! Not to mention sometimes it is hard to get what is in your head translated onto paper!

But enough of my complaining! I started my process by doing some zentangle doodling on a DIY Charms Creations heart that I also mounted onto cardstock. Then I found a photo and proceeded to zentangle my background. I decided I liked the idea of white on the kraft so focused on that. And this is what I ended up with:


A close up of the DIY heart.

I decided to doodle my title as well! And I had some die-cut hearts that I decided to add in as well.

So, definitely a challenge, but I think the result is ok. Not sure I will be taking it up on a regular basis however!

Thanks for stopping by,

Katie x

I think the result is MUCH more than 'ok'!!! LOOOVE the white on Kraft, too.....looks so clean! That row of hearts is gorgeous & clever gal thinking of doodling ON the embellie! I must admit, though, I'm with you...ain't going near the Zentangle now for a looooong while! Anyways, thanks for sharing with us at K+. And slap on the back for taking up the challenge!!!!
