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

With this card we will be halfway through this series. If you want to work ahead I will be pairing up letters from now on until we get to XYZ (so L/M, N/O, P/Q, R/S, T/U, V/W, XYZ)

For example, in this sixth swap the requirements are that you use (at least) one pattern that starts with an "L" and (at least) one pattern that starts with a "M". All of the patterns you choose go on one card.

Try to create a design using only patterns that start with L and M - 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 Linked for the string" or "I filled in the right corner with Mooka". 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.

No one joined my last make-up swap. If any of you become interested in a make-up swap for missing letters just PM me and I will set one up.
