Our May 2010 Zentangle-A-Thon (ZAT) is Coming Up Fast, May 14-16!

For those who have participated in previous ZATs, this is a reminder thread so you can mark your calendar, cut your card stock, replenish your pen and marker collection and seek out sources of inspiration!

Welcome to all those folks for whom this will be your first ZAT! This thread is the place where you can ask questions and look for support and encouragement before diving into the three-day zentangle extravaganza.
And then...mark your calendar, cut your card stock, replenish your pen and marker collection and seek out sources of inspiration!

A couple of days before the ZAT, I will open a thread where we can post and trade the zentangles we make between 12 noon Friday May 14 and 12 midnight Sunday May 16.

One place to look for continued encouragement, inspiration and zen practice is in the Zentangles With A Twist Social Group http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/group.php?groupid=37 facilitated by the consistently creative and supportive Chatty. This group is open to anyone and now up to 75+ members, due in no small part to Chatty's terrific weekly challenges and friendly welcoming attitude ~ Thank you, Chatty!

One thing we have done in the past to spice up the ZAT and to get creative juices flowing is to have optional daily challenges, lik zen inchies, watercolor backgrounds, etc.

Would you like to have challenges in this ZAT and if so....what kind of challenges would you like? Remember, they would always be optional!

Ooops, I think I put 12 o'clock as a starting time when I sent the invitations... Hope this isn't a problem :unsure:.

I wasn't sure....I've changed it to noon, so as not to confuse anybody.
Thanks, sniisk!!

I will be around this weekend posting a few zens to trade! Started one last night to get me going.

I can't wait!! Only 36 hours until I can start - 35 hours and 59 minutes. . .but who's counting?

I really enjoyed the challenges during the last ZAT that I was involved in. Can I suggest: Zentangle Inchies, or Colourful zentangles (see how many colours you can include in one zentangle), or a set starting tangle for people to then decorate, or specific patterns to be used on the card?

Now there are only 35 hours and 47 minutes. . . and counting. . .

Nice suggestions, Donna ~ thanks!

OK...here is the Official May 2010 Zentangle-a-thon thread ~

Wohooooo! A whole week-end of tangling has begun! Been tangling all afternoon. This is pretty well finished - 8 1/2 x 11 inches! I'll do some more shading on it before I really call it completed. I don't know, I may add some more to the top. I think I'll have to live with it for a few hours before I decide.


I'll post a larger pic in my gallery, so you can see it better.
