Mandala zentangles, to me, are easy, intuitive, and very relaxing to draw.

For this swap you will create 1 mandala-style zentangle for 1 partner.

Zentangles should be the usual 3.5 inch x 3.5 inch size and on cardstock/heavy paper. Zentangles may be black and white or color, sender's choice.

THE DETAILS: All swappers in good standing are welcome. 4.95 rating please, PM if you have a compelling reason to be below that level. Flakers will not be tolerated and the usual swap-bot and Zentangle group rules and standards apply.

I have a question. Is a mandala zentangle always in a circle? Is that how it differs from a regular zen? Thanks for answers.

Yup, that's it! Here is a link for more info:

mandala vs zentangle

A hint I heard once: if you want to make a symetrical mandala, you can use polar coordiate graphing paper on a light table under your drawing surface! :)

Do the always have to be symetrical?

Bucket 04/14/2011 #

Mandalas should technically have "radial balance." This means that all elements radiate out from the center of the circle. This does not necessarily mean that they will be symmetrical - it just means that the center is the focal point and all elements of the mandala lead your eyes toward the center. Hope that helps, @daisygirl !

Thanks!!! I am going to try my best! Hope I get it right!

personally I have seen all sorts of mandalas = some symetrical - some not.. some leading to the center .. some not..

Just one more day to wait chickadeebijoux! I'll do one last run-through of the swappers tomorrow sometime and then assign partners.

Happy to have such a big group for this swap!
