This is the fifth in a series of alphabet zentangles - with a twist. You will be picking zentangle patterns that start with specific alphabet letters.

For example, in this fifth swap the requirements are that you use (at least) one pattern that starts with an "I" and (at least) one pattern that starts with a "J" and (at least) one pattern that starts with a "K". Note that we are doing three letters on this card instead of the usual two -- I wanted to make sure you had plenty of patterns to choose from.

Try to create a design using only patterns that start with I, J, or K - but if you need to use other patterns for the beauty of the design that is fine. I don't want to limit creativity -- I want to present a format that might encourage you to try new patterns.There are numerous zentangle websites and most list patterns alphabetically. Zentangle basics are described in detail at Zentangle.com and a nice alphabetical list of patterns is found at TanglePatterns.com

Your zentangle can be black and white or colored. The size can be a standard ATC (2.5" x 3.5") OR a standard zentangle square (3.5" x 3.5") When you sign up for the swap please state which size zentangle you prefer to receive from your partner.

Please include a note with your zentangle telling what patterns you picked for the letters. You might say "I used Inapod for the string" or "I filled in the right corner with Keeko". If it isn't easy to describe please do a simple sketch of the pattern in your note. Don't just list the patterns used -- be sure to ID them either descriptively or with a quick sketch. I'm hoping we all learn a new pattern or two in this swap.
