A bit of Zentang-owl!



At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Add Some Doodling.We have the fabulous Doodle Pantry as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

So,I thought I would challenge myself!!I’ve done faux stitching,wobbly frames,frames using a ruler in the past…now to try something different!!And I couldn’t have found a more perfect image than this delightful Quirky Owl by Doodle Pantry .There are lots of other Quirky animals if owls ain’t your thing 🙂 Must admit it was a little strange armed with only a fine liner rather than an array of colours not say a bit daunting…but I found a useful site here.I was still feeling nervy as I began but as I went along I learned to let go and enjoy it!Of course I had the added pressure of this being a DT card and the fact that time was of the essence.Why don’t I ever take the easy route?!Not sure I got it all right and there are probably loads of mistakes that a seasoned Zentangler could spot but I’m quite pleased with the overall effect 🙂 I just had to use the pretty papers that came with the image to create a banner backdrop for him to perch amongst along with one of the sentiments also in the set.Following on from the theme I,naturally,drew in some faux stitching around the edges of the base card and banners 😀

    Oh my goodness, this is amazing, Lisa. I had to go back and check the original image to compare. I never would have thought of zentangling the whole owl. How striking and totally cool. He looks awesome next to the brightly coloured background flags. Love the whimsy of the angles and the funky doodled borders. Wow!
