The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - Doodles



Never been much of a doodler, but I have been waiting for a chance to try out some Zentangle, so this was a perfect opportunity to have a go.  I chose to "tangle" in the center a knot inspired by the Book of Kells, mainly because this calendar is for two of my best friends who are of Celtic descent.  I then embellished the outer edge with flowers as their beautiful garden is a passion for them.  Mounted on cardstock in black and white with a calendar of kittens, cats being another love of theirs, will make a great gift for them.  You can see the patterns in this closeup of the easel card closed.



Thank you for all your wonderful comments over the past few weeks, I have been tardy in replying due to health issues, hopefully now I am back in the swing of things.

Wow, great Zentangling here Paula! I think it's an amazing technique but I just don't think I've got the patience for it to be honest. I love how you've continued it on the base too. Gorgeous little kitty there.
Hope you are feeling well now.
