New to Zentangle?

There is also an international version of this swap, and due to several requests, I am running this US version. I hope you're have fun with it!

This swap is 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.

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.

YES!.... I CHANGED THE DEADLINE... I HAVE A SURGERY SCHEDULED THE LAST WEEK OF FEBRUARY.

ok. Thanks for letting us know.... I hope the surgery is a minor one. I will keep you in my prayers!

Thanks so much, I moved the dates back, just to give me a little recovery-time. I so appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers

Can you do another one of these at a later date? I want to join but I won't have time to mail it out by the deadline. so i'm not joining this one.

gramsbuttonbox 03/11/2016 #

Yes, this is a pretty popular swap, I will be running it in about a month after this one is finished. Thanks for asking, I hope you will join us then

Can we use colored card stock? With no designs, just a light color?

This one started out as a challenge for me - I really struggled the first couple try's, but now I'm loving the results. Thanks for hosting this swap!

I'm thinking I may have forgotten to put my user name on my items. Whoops. And I'm pretty sure I forgot to put the name of the swap! Sorry! :-( First swap.

Oh know I think I forgot my user name and name of swap also.. :( hope that doesn't cost any points
