Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop

Hi all


Today I hope you'll have found your way here via Suzannes Blog, Snaps and Snippets. If not, and you've got lost along the way, you'll find the whole list of participants below. 

Today my LO has no layers! ... Wowee that was harder than I thought!

As you will see, this is VERY different for me, as I have had a go at Zentangle! Now, don't judge me on my tangle.. it was only the second attempt I'd had at it, and it took me ages to do a whole 12 x 12 to fill it in... I know I have a long way to go, but I've got the book now and I can only get better! 

But anyway... here it is, no paper layering, simply doodling, a photo of my daughter in laws wedding bouquet and the title. 

I played with adding some other embellishments...but tbh, I like it enough as it is without confusing it with more embellishments.. so although it's completely and utterly different and I'm rather pleased with it now... although to begin with I wasn't too sure about it! 

The idea was also inspired by a challenge over on the 'White with One' blog where I was challenged to create a LO with White and Liquorice only.. well I think you can say I've done that here! 

Thanks for stopping by, do continue on the journey and hop on over to Lesleys Blog to see what she's been up to... here's the whole list of participants too in case you get lost along the way.

Happy Hopping!

  1. Had a go at zentangle - you look like a pro to me - scares me as does the one layer challenge but you've rocked it :)

  2. Wow that is fantastic I could never have done that zentange in a month of Sundays. It certainly makes the photo pop and yes the title did need a backing to make it show up. well done you, no layering would have scared me to death
