For this swap we'll tangle 2 zentangles on official sized tiles using same strings. As said in title, this is swap for beginners so anyone who would like to try their hands in tangling is welcome to join.

How we'll do it:

  • cut out 2 tiles from thin cardstock or watercolor paper in size 3,5" x 3,5" (89 mm x 89 mm)

  • go to string page on TanglePatterns.com and print out and copy String 001 and String 002 (directions for printing and adding to your tile can be find on linked site in post The Importance of Strings )

  • you can chose will you make zentangle on white or colored surface (watercolor or black) and will you add shading - sender's choice

  • please secure your tiles in a way that would minimise folding / creasing of the envelope.

All other group rules apply...

Have fun!

I have done some zentangle inspire art before but not actual zentangle in official size so this one will be new to me too :)

As always, if there are any questions or comments, reply below and I'll try to get back to you asap. ;)

@MichelleWillow I've always wanted to try zentangles but it is so confusing (well it is to me anyway) :(

Sarah, it's like with everything else - practice makes it perfect ;)

Can we color the zentangle itself? I have seen some gorgeous tiles on Flickr in which the artist used color pencils to shade the tangles, rather than just graphite. Or should we stick with black-and-white?

I will assign these for @MichelleWillow shortly.
