I’m intrigued by Zentangles and I’d like to try it. However I’m afraid to join a Zentangles swap and disappointed my partner who might be experienced at doing them.

If you’re like me, then this swap is for you! Zentangles for beginners on an ATC. You can join if you’ve done many, but keep in mind that you might receive a “first time” zentangle from your partner.

We’ll keep it simple, black and white. One ATC, one partner.

Please make them the standard ATC size 2.5 x 3.5. ATC ~ Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized “swap” events or through the mail, in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5″ x 3.5″. As a general rule, swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.


· Please rate your partner as soon as package is received;

· 5s should be given out based on whether the package meets the swap requirements, NOT whether you like it or not;


· You must have a rating of 4.9+ with no recent no sends;

· No unexplained 1's or 3's or you will be banned;

· Newbies allowed only with 2 rated mail swaps.

I will check profiles before assigning partners and I will ban anyone who seems fishy (even late senders in my previous swaps). I might sound harsh but I’m trying to avoid unpleasant experience. These are not themed and can be prepared in advance and swap deadline is long enough to prepare a nice package. If any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to PM me (communication is the key).

this will be my first try with zentangle, I just googled it and think it will be a fun art form and will be able to use in in other art projects I like doing. Thanks for offering this... Sherry

I have wanted to give these a try so I guess the best way is to just jump in and start. Thanks for the challenge.

This swap is now officially in the Top 10. I never thought it would be so popular!!!

If all goes well (no flakers), I'll host another one in January for sure. I lvoe doing Zentangles but I'm still "new" so this is a good swap even for me ;-)
