Kraft + August challenge

Oh my goodness, how awesome is the challenge this month at Kraft +!
Initially when I looked at this I thought no way Jose, will I be able to do this one, especially after seeing it done at E2C retreat by the lovely Marilyn Scholz. I mean to say - I can't draw, I am really good at stick figures, drawing and art is what my sister does, she's really good at it. Craft is my thing. So I was going to sit this one out. Anyway, I gave myself a good old talking to, and told myself, "just give it a go, what have you got to lose". So I did, and I am soooooo happy I did!
I had a different photo in mind when I started out, but when I got started, that photo didn't work for what I had created in my zentangling. So I hunted for something else and remembered that my daughter Melanie had done this glamour photo shoot, this photo being one of those she had taken. PERFECT photo, to go with my doodling. 
I created my design by using a stencil as my base design, then the doodling started, and the colouring with some gelatos. The embellishing just then came together fairly quickly. I doodled on the Kaisercraft flourishes, added a Charms Creations heart, some crocheted flowers my mum made, and a lovely after 5's flower, and some flairs from Funky Flairs Studio
I really love how this layout turned out, I love that I persevered and did the zentangling. 
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
