In a  recent comment on my blog from Tania B at my Passion for Scrapping she said she enjoyed working out of her comfort zone , which was why she had joined in the challenge for Zentangling at the Kraft+blog this month. 
I realised that I seldom try anything which is even a  teeny bit out of MY comfort zone but  decided to throw caution to the wind as they say !

First I scrutinized all the entries and almost gave up- as there are some stunning entries this month. Then I consulted my faithful friend Google and found some amazing work by Joanne Fink. Well worth a visit just to admire her talents as she takes doodling to a whole new level. 

So I started to practice and practice and found great pleasure in my doodling and soon was ready to start my layout. I experienced one minor hiccup along the way , the contrast on Kraft paper is not as dramatic as on white paper , and my gel pens colours also became very muted. I also discovered that I am not as yet experienced enough to do flowers freehand so covered my efforts up with paper flowers and my embellishments in the bottom corner. 

I thought it quite appropriate to use this photo of the beautiful Weaver bird , as their nests are an example of Zentangles in Nature.

So I did enjoy challenging myself and loved doodling and while there is loads of  room for improvement I am not entirely UNhappy with my doodles and I  did have a load of fun doing them.

Still time to try your hand at the Kraftplus challenge.
