The ATC version of this swap was popular and a repeat was requested. So here it is in the traditional 3.5 inch zentangle format.

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 9 left over inchies from other projects and glue them into the center of your regular blank3.5 in zentangle tile. It now it has the look of mosaic tile work. Zentangle it and you have a Zentangled Mosaic Inchie 3.5 inch tile.

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 layered zentangled tile.

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.

Do we have to zentangle each 'inchie' separately, or can we do something that covers the whole grid of them more as a gestalt? From the description, I'm guessing the latter, but the example is more of the former.

Ditto ^^ that question!

the idea was to use scraps of other stuff and reassemble them into something new, Not everyone keeps such left overs so sure why not if you want to do the whole thing then cut it up thats fine with me.
