Hi, i recently heard about zentangles(a sort of doodle) and wanted to give them a try. I didnt see any swaps at the time for them so i thought I'd host one. So we'll start small, making inchies. since they dont seem to hard to make we'll make 5 zentangle inchies for 2 partners. so 10 total. This swap is international and newbies are welcome with a filled out profile. So this should be fun!


Newbies with filled out profile are welcome all others must have 4.8 rating or higher with no recent 1's

inchies must be zentangles (1x1in) on sturdy backings.

10 ichies, 5 for each partner

please try to include name, username and swap name on the backs.

No flakers!

Ok I hope lots of people join! this should be fun for everyone out there who likes to doodle. Oh If you dont know what zentangles are do a search on Flickr, there are lots of great examples there. you can start as soon as you'd like since this is obviously senders choice.

This looks a little challenging for an inchie (such a small place for repeating areas of pattern)! As soon as I am done with a few of my other swaps, I think I will join.

When I made zentangle inchies before, I did a big one and then cut it into the inchies. That way you're only doing one, and each inchie will be different.

I have never made any for a swap, but the ones I see online are just black and white. Can they be colored as well? I just made some with colors, but can make more just black and white. Thanks

yeah,colors sound fun, I dont see why not!

I've been thinking about zentagle inchies for ages and just noticed your swap, might have a practice go to see if I can manage them before signing up.

I love zentangles. My new favorite thing. But inchies are so so so tiny. Hope I can make them that itty bitty. :)

Darn you! This is another thing I just have to try. I'm watching for now.

Darn again - just noticed today is the closing date. Perhaps you'll do another swap like this soon.

you can just make one huge zentangle then cut it up into inch size pieces.
