Worked on mine the last 2 days. This is my first Zen Tangles ATC but it won't be my last. They are soooo much fun. One of the other swappers turned me on to this Art and I am so glad she did.

I think im possibly obsessed with zentangle. It's pretty much all i've been doing recently!!! my atc is all done and im ready to swap xx

I'm a newbie with the swapping but I also can't wait and I'm a little obsessed with the tangles myself

EmperorFool 02/22/2011 #

Quick question...should the ATC be just a zentangle? (Not like any zentangle is "just" a zentangle, but you know what I mean.) Or could I use a zentange I draw as a major element in a collage?

mb58ca 02/22/2011 #

@EmperorFool Sorry, still not sure what you're asking. Can you reword your question (base it on the swap picture)?

djmom11 02/23/2011 #

@stickerlady I think EmperorFool is wondering if the ATC is just a zentangle or can she add other things to it, and the zentangle is just part of it. Can it be embellished w/other things?

EmperorFool 02/23/2011 #

Yes...djmom11 got what I was trying to say. Here's a scan of an ATC I made featuring a zentangle I drew, but not "just" a zentangle. I was wondering if something sort of like this would count:

Either way, I'm planning to do this swap. I'm just curious about my options. :-)

I need to know exactly what we're doing here. Going by the photo at the top of this page, I assumed we were doing a regular zentangle but with an ATC size.

If the it's suppose to be a zentangle incorporated into an ATC, I won't be joining.

I'll watch for now until I understand what the requirements are.

rsj244 02/24/2011 #

I'm not sure what's so difficult to understand. You make an ATC that has a Zentangle on it. Just like it says...

ericabella 02/24/2011 #

I love Zentangles! I'm going to have so much fun making a tangled ATC. Enjoy, everyone!

mb58ca 02/25/2011 #

Okay everyone:

  1. Do not 'incorporate' a zentangle pattern with other things. The ATC is to be a full zentangle, just like the swap picture.
  2. Can be colored or black & white.
  3. Can be with or without a border.

I hope that makes things more clear.

missmuffcake 02/25/2011 #

i just started doing zentangles - so fun!

Deeno1105 02/25/2011 #

Thank you @StickerLady I was pretty sure what you meant but I'm new to both ATCs and Zentangles. I have already done mine but for adding a color. I'll complete it when I get my partner assigned. Thank you!

Ikat78 02/28/2011 #

I am so excited about this swap. I made 3 zentagle ATCs over the weekend and I seem to be getting better every time.

djmom11 02/28/2011 #

@EmperorFool I really like your ATC! :)

Ikat78 02/28/2011 #

EmperorFool, that is really nice!

lizzymus 02/28/2011 #

I've been practicing for two weeks. I am obsessed with zentangles. My husband thinks I'm crazy!! I'm new to this, when will we get a partner?

mb58ca 03/25/2011 #

I started a Flickr group called StickerLady's Swap Spotlight to showcase the swap-sheet results of those of which I am hosting. I uploaded my first 'very basic' Doodle-a-Day #1 swap there. If you'd like to join, just pm me for an invite. I wish I took a picture of my ATC so I could upload it. Maybe next time...
