This is an international swap, open to newbies who have a complete and well-thought-out profile.

Does the idea of Zentangle scare you a little? If you don't consider yourself a doodler, then perhaps it might.

This is a completely judgement-FREE swap, and the ONLY rule is that you have FUN with it!

You will have TWO partners. (That means you will get TWO ratings.)

DETAILS: Take a piece of 5" x 5" plain card stock. (I recycle off- white Manila file folders.)

Draw lines back and forth, and up and down, 1 1/4" apart. (That will make four rows of squares, across, and four rows of squares, up and down, 16 squares total.)

Fill each tiny square with a zen-doodle. (Or Zentangle, if you prefer.)

Your swap partners can then use them for ATC's or inchies' backgrounds, or anything else of their choice.

To mail your cards, they can be folded along the center line, to fit into a regular envelope.

You can find hundreds of designs online, in books, or just your imagination!

Fill the entire page.

Repeat. You can either copy the first one, or come up with something entirely different. Send one Zentangle card to each of your swap partners.

As I said, this is completely judgement-FREE!

And remember...MOST important!.....have FUN!

If you have any questions, please just ask, or message me.

Is color aloud or just black and white?

I will say no, because I do not want to add some concepts newbies might just not be ready for...this is a very newbie-friendly swap, and I want them to be confident and have FUN, no stress!

I'm sure there might be other Zentangle swaps for much more confident doodlers...and if not, maybe you could host one!

Good luck, And happy swapping!

As planned, partners will be assigned soon.

I just got home from the hospital, my surgery slowed me down a little more than I thought...I'm sorry, everyone. I hope you understand.

the mailing deadline has been moved back a bit. I am trying really hard to get back on track, please have a good week!

@gramsbuttonbox Hope you get well soon 💐

Thank you very much. I have had to move the dates on several of my swaps, I do hope most of the swappers understand. Hopefully I will get back on track real soon!

Have a good week!
