View Full Version : Zentangle athon?

05-19-2013, 01:12 PM
I'm in need of some "Zen" in my life right now. Anyone interested in participating in and/or co-hosting? Dates are TBD...to see what the interest is. Whaddya think?:jiggy:

05-19-2013, 01:41 PM
Sounds fun!

05-19-2013, 02:01 PM
I'd be so up for this! I'm trying to do a tangle a day, so hopefully I should have plenty of cards to trade!

05-19-2013, 11:06 PM
I am going really slow on my art these days but if there is a marathon and I am feeling well enough to play I jump in when I can so you can count on me for that.

05-20-2013, 09:36 AM
I've asked Carole to schedule this for June 21-24. Please let's all see if we can get more players and interest.

It's gonna be fun, fun, fun!!!

05-20-2013, 09:56 AM
Sounds great!

05-20-2013, 05:24 PM
I would be interested :)

05-21-2013, 05:19 PM
Admittedly, I'm a Zentangle newbie and I've never done a marathon before, but I'd be willing to give it a shot!

05-21-2013, 06:34 PM
Outstanding! I'll be sending out reminders about the same time as the initial post...this is going to be lots of fun!!!

05-21-2013, 06:51 PM
If you still need a co-host, I'm available ;)

05-21-2013, 07:53 PM
Elizabeth...that would be OUTSTANDING! We can do this again, right?!

05-22-2013, 02:35 PM
I hope to tangle with you all. I haven't done a marathon since Easter. I need one.

05-23-2013, 02:00 PM
Is there anywhere I might be able to find information about art marathons?

05-23-2013, 04:05 PM
This is a link to one of the marathons taking place right now -- http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26302 -- some of the info is universal. "Athons" may vary depending on the theme as to what art is created; occasionally there will be what is called "All Art-athon". Those are especially good great fun. In the "athon" forum there will be threads that can give you more of an overview...

05-23-2013, 04:51 PM
Thanks! I am excited!

05-24-2013, 04:31 PM
I was wondering if this tangle will be an open tangle for tangling anything we can get our hands on or should we focus on ATCs only? In the past I've done some die cut shapes and even turned some of my tangles in to kaleidoscopes but I've even seen people decorate things as cool as sneakers.

05-25-2013, 09:33 AM
This will be open to any mail art size. All I request is that when you post pics you make sure the size is noted. That way there will be less confusion when setting up trades.

05-25-2013, 03:43 PM
Cool! :)

05-28-2013, 06:25 PM
Ohhhh! Pick me! Pick me! I'm in! Are we going to have challenges? Or themes, or maybe video chat sessions?

05-28-2013, 07:11 PM
There will be daily games...everyone may want to brush up on some tangles at http://tanglepatterns.com/ ... Ibus and I have not really worked out any details, but it will be good great and challenging fun, I hope...

05-28-2013, 10:41 PM
It sounds like fun.

05-29-2013, 03:06 AM
This is awful 21-24 I will be in Italy, in fact I am leaving on the 11th and return...28th
so sorry...

05-29-2013, 10:19 AM
That is depressing...I'll miss your great talent...

05-29-2013, 11:50 AM
I am so sorry too, missed all the athon's this year. Well there are zentangles in my galleriy ready to get swapped, and I will probably have access to e-mail, so I will be able to check the thread. Good Luck!!!

05-29-2013, 12:04 PM
I plan on playing. :spinny:

05-29-2013, 07:04 PM
Excellent! See ya there...

05-31-2013, 10:04 PM

A Zentangle Athon?! Oh my oh my oh my!!! :jiggy:I'll definitiely play, although not on the 22nd as I'm on a birthday then. Although drawing and tangling then and there doesn't seem all too unlikely... :-)

If I cant' make it for this weekend's athon, then the Zentangle Athon will be my first, I'm sooo looking forward it! :-D

06-06-2013, 08:37 AM
Cool beans!

06-08-2013, 01:10 AM
I am co-hosting a live art ATC event that weekend, but am bookmarking this should I find the time to tangle.

06-08-2013, 08:51 AM
ScrapPea, that will be fabulous is you can join in the fun!

06-13-2013, 09:17 AM
I'm so sorry for your loss...you will be missed...

06-17-2013, 09:21 PM
The week-end is coming. Who is ready?

06-17-2013, 11:10 PM

06-18-2013, 12:13 AM
Getting more excited all the time!

06-18-2013, 07:38 AM

Big toe - that one is fun! I look forward to seeing it on something wonderful...

06-18-2013, 11:39 AM
Big toe that is a great pattern! I just got a new die and I wasn't thinking to tangle it when I got it but now that I'm looking at it I think it has real possibilities. :)

DUH, what is a "die"?

A die-cut, like the Nestabilities (http://www.spellbinderspaperarts.com/products/c-2-nestabilities.aspx) by Spellbinders?

06-19-2013, 06:20 PM
Hi everyone. I'm ready and can't wait to get started. Zentangles are my latest obsession. I just finished inchie tangles for a swap. That was fun.

Are you in need of a co-host? I will be around for most of the weekend.

06-19-2013, 08:07 PM
I'm ready I'm ready I'm ready!!!

06-19-2013, 08:39 PM
Yes - that's exactly right. The one I got happens to be sizzix but spellbinders is another brand. It's got a card bottom with a little bird on top.

06-19-2013, 09:42 PM
sharlene54, love to have you cohost! I'll be posting the initial thread some time tomorrow. It's great there are so many interested...tell your friends!

06-20-2013, 04:25 AM
Do we have any daily themes or is it just open theme for the whole athon?

big toe studio
06-20-2013, 07:39 AM
donna: our hostesses spoke of daily games, so stay tuned

06-20-2013, 08:35 AM
1v2paint should post daily themes soon. We're working on it.

06-20-2013, 09:22 AM
I plan on sending a notice to everyone who posted to this thread when the official thread gets opened. A complete explanation of "athon", some other definitions, and lots of fun activities. Be on the lookout for that sometime around noon, Pacific...

06-20-2013, 09:26 AM
As far as I'm concerned, you may make your cards any time you like...though we ask that you please don't post them until the Athon is officially underway :spinny:
