11th August

Kraft + August Challenge


Here is the link for this very cool challenge....
Well, cool for some!  I have never zentangled before, but was definitely starting to think about it, so I jumped in... tentatively! lol
Mine is pretty basic, but I am still proud of it, and I am no longer a zentangle virgin!

Bali Time.

I was very tentative with my tangles, and to be honest, my creativity did not kick in... I should have googled some images and got some very cool doodles. My friend was here today, and she got so many ideas on the net from some very cool zentanglers... wish I had thought of that! lol 
I purposely crosshatched each half of each leave, hoping it would look darker, as a shadow would. 
I was so tempted to add colour to my leaves, but resisted, and added chipboard and bling instead!

A couple of close ups...

To me, the beautiful frangipani is such a symbol of Bali.. and one of my favourite flowers... they signify my time in Bali...
I had fun with this challenge, and may even be tempted to try it again... but will research a little and practice a lot! 
Great challenge again Sandra and Kraft +.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Cheers, Vicki


  1. I reckon you've nailed it! Just my humble opinion....I don't think it needs to be 'complex' to work.....I think this page really works perfectly as a 'whole'...the Zentangle supports your LO to perfection.....there's something about the colours, shapes and form here that I really, really like!! So go you:) Thanks, as always, for sharing with us at K+ :):)

  2. Thank you Lizzie! I appreciate your lovely feedback!

  3. You may call it 'basic', but it's super effective...beautiful layout & take on the challenge :) Thanks for joining in the fun over @ Kraft+ this month!

    1. Thank you Paula, I love Kraft +challenges! And this was a challenge, but a fun one!
