This is a project to use up some of those small pieces of paper you just don't know what to do with. I make refractive watercolor painted back grounds for some of my work. I splatter, float and drip paint on larger than I need watercolor paper. After it dries I cut it to the size I need from the best parts of the paper. I salvage as much of the trimmings as I can. Anything over an inch in size is saved for other smaller projects. I've got a bunch of "Inchie" sized paper. I'm not into making or collecting inches. I decided to glue them together so I would have a larger space to work in.

This is how it works. Take 6 left over inchies from other projects and glue them into the center of your regular blank ATC. It now it has the look of mosaic tile work. Zentangle it and you have a Zentangled Mosaic Inchie ATC

You will make one for one partner. Your back ground will have color, Use black or other dark permanent on your paper bits for making the tangles. It should turn out as a sturdy zentangled ATC.

The usual Swap-bot rules apply. Flaking will not be tolerated. If you have a problem let your partner know. If your flaked on let me know.

Questions and suggestions IM me.

Neat idea!

Question please? If we glue 6- 1" squares together, it won't be the normal ATC size. It'll be 3" X 3". Is that the size it's suppose to be?

The way to make this fit on a standard ATC is 2 squares across and 3 down. It leaves a small margin around the squares that give it a framed look it you use a contrasting color card stock to mount the squares on.

Look closely at the example above, it shows how I placed the squares on the ATC.

I've done mine. It was really fun. I hope you'll do another swap like this in the future.

how about a 3.5 inch square? It uses 9 inchie tiles, 3 across and 3 down. Like the ATC the left over space makes a nice frame.

What a great idea- recycling project- I have several mail art envelopes that printed sideways, but they were still to pretty to throw out so that is what I will be using- the prettiest parts of them
