Signup/withdraw date - December 26, 2019
Number of Cards - 3 for 3

Media: Hand drawn only

Alphabetic Zentangle Adventure swap is based on zentangle patterns found at tanglepatterns.com (http://tanglepatterns.com/)

The idea of this swap is to make zentangle cards using patterns found at tanglepatterns.com (http://tanglepatterns.com/). This swap will be for the letters D, E, and F.

When you go to tanglepatterns.com, you will see a banner across the page about a quarter of the way down that lists the alphabet. Click on the “D” and choose 2 or more different patterns to use for your first card. Then click on “E” to choose 2 or more different patterns to use for your second card. Click “F” and choose 2 or more different patterns for your third card. There are multiple pages for each letter, so don’t stop at the first page, keep exploring!!

You will be making three cards. One will feature patterns beginning with the letter D, the second will feature patterns beginning with the letter E, and the third will feature patterns beginning with the letter F. If you choose to do a host card (not required, but would be treasured!) you can use any pattern(s) you choose (just be sure to list the pattern name on the back of the card).

For example: Card 1, I chose daggerly, DAYZEE-MAE and DOUBLE DOUBLE and combined them to make this card:
210797
Card 2, I chose ECHO, EL PRADO and Escalator to make this card:
210798
Card 3, I chose F2F, FANDANGO, Faux Weave, and Fe-Ba to make this card:
210799

These are just examples taken from patterns for each letter; be sure to explore all pages for each letter and find patterns that appeal to you!

Each card should have at least two different patterns featured, but you can do more if you prefer. You can do the patterns you choose in any composition on the cards but be sure that you list the name of each pattern on the back of each card. You can choose to do your cards in black and white (with or without shading) or you can color them in if you want. As long as the patterns come from tanglepatterns.com (http://tanglepatterns.com/)

∙ All atc’s should be 2 x 3 , in individual plastic sleeves, and sturdy! If it flaps in the wind, it is too thin. Please trim your cards so they are neat and tidy! PLEASE do not use just a single piece of card stock – be sure to back them with something sturdy such as tissue box or cereal box material.
∙ Each card should be different.
∙ A host card is not required but would be cherished.
∙ Please be sure to put your username (so we can give credit where credit is due), and location (because we all like to see where our cards came from) and swap name and the name of the patterns you used, on the back of each atc!!
∙ No communication with no cards will result in a neutral ITrader.

Mailing/Postage
Do not send envelopes. I will provide them. Include a large self-addressed label. I will send you my address when you sign up. I am still in Fairhope, AL, so you may already have my correct address, but I will PM anyway.

US Players: Include one forever stamp.

International Players: I will cover postage for the first 5 international players who join the swap.

When you receive your returns, please don’t forget to leave YouRock! comments for those who created your cards for your collection!! I have made this easy by providing a link on the initial thread. Just click on the name of the person you received the card from, which will pop up one of their thread comments, and then click the YouRock button! When you leave a comment on the YouRock! it’s always nice to let them know which card you received, although it’s not required. Also, if you could, please leave iTrader for me so that I know that you enjoyed participating and that you received your returns!!

My intention (barring any unforseen events) is to keep having these swaps all the way through the alphabet, so hopefully there are fellow Zentangle enthusiasts who will be willing to join in the fun!

If you have any questions, either PM me or post it to the thread (as other people may have the same question!)

So, who wants to join me on the Alphabetic Zentangle Adventure?

Well, here I am in the second of the series and have not even touched them! I am sadly going to have to pass on this one... :( My mom passed on Thanksgiving and my doggie 2 weeks later. With the newest grandson and all that goes on with the holidays...life has been more than my regular hectic! So sorry, I was really looking forward to the whole series.

AngelJoy
12-23-2019, 11:11 PM
Oh, ThouArtDelyrias, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, and then losing your dog as well. How heartbreaking. Holidays can be stressful enough without this added burden. I'm glad you have the joy of a new grandson to help distract from the sorrow.

Maybe when life calms down a little, you can make the D,E,F cards and see if anyone who participated in this series would be willing to make a trade with you. I know I would. Just let us know!

My prayers are with you and your family.

So sorry...I just couldn't get the time to make/mail cards...with the holidays and my upcoming retirement.
I have to withdraw. Hope to join you on the next round.
