Kraft + Challenge for August (Zentangle Doodling)

I wasn’t sure if I was going to get the chance to enter the kraft+ challenge this month but I was looking through (my ever increasing) mould stash and came across the perfect resin piece for it!  So I went for it and locked in a few hours to procrastinate, make 3 different backgrounds before I liked this one and made it work!

Kraft   Aug Zentangle Challenge
This layout after the initial hiccups fell into place really quickly. I wanted the image of “oscar’ to be the focal and not the doodling so I kept it fairly minimal and to the side. I didnt use the whole resin layer, I cut it up using my Tim Holtz rubber scissors. 
There is journalling but its on the back, I find that I do that quite often with my pages. It reads “Oscar - He was a really sweet baby kitty but unfortunately we couldn’t convince the other furry member of our home (a rescue greyhound) that Oscar was friend not food. She was just a little bit curious about him to make ours a permanent home for him. We have our suspicions that in ‘her past life’ Harper (the elegant and very easygoing, loyalloves everyone and shares her food with the other cat and chickens) may have dealt with kittens in a different way. We were not sure if she wanted to mother him or smother him. It wasn’t a chance we wanted to take. 

Some close-up images and a breakdown of supplies ..
Kraft   Aug Zentangle Challenge Parts
Zentangle Resin Layer Piece and alphabet letters in ‘Oscar’ from The Resin Rainbow on ebay or facebook.
Mirror Circle Dots were purchased from a craft show earlier this year.
Black/White lined paper is about 10-12 years old and from my scraps drawer. I think it was done by Paper Pizzaz (who are no longer around).

Thanks for looking ..
