Alphabetic Zentangle Adventure swap (M,N,O), due June 18, 2020

Alphabetic Zentangle Adventure swap is based on zentangle patterns found at tanglepatterns.com

The idea of this swap is to make zentangle cards using patterns found at tanglepatterns.com. This swap will be for the letters M, N, and O.

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 “M” and choose 2 or more different patterns to use for your first card. Then click on “N” to choose 2 or more different patterns to use for your second card. Click “O” and choose 2 or more different patterns for your third card.

You will be making three cards. One will feature patterns beginning with the letter M, the second will feature patterns beginning with the letter N, and the third will feature patterns beginning with the letter O. 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 marasu, Maryhill, merryweather, and Moving Day
214481


Card 2, I chose Nuwave, N velope, Nips, and Navaho
214632

Card 3, I chose On Target, OK-RAH, Orbs-la-Dee, and Olipze
214633

These are just examples taken from patterns for each letter; be sure to explore all patterns for each letter and find ones 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

∑ All atc’s should be 2 Ĺ x 3 Ĺ, in individual plastic sleeves, and sturdy! If you can easily fold it, 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
Please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope for your returns. 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.

Please be sure you have sufficient postage on your envelope when you send your cards, I will be refusing any that arrive with postage due.

International Players: I will cover return 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!

Feel free to send any for future swaps with this swap. Future swaps will be (P,Q,R), (S,T,U), (V,W,X), (Y,Z,0-9).

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?

I've been anticipating and working on this set. I have just uploaded into My Gallery. Okay, I was hoping you would accept me. I love Zentangles and I am learning so much from this Adventure. Yesterday, we had worship by YouTube, as the scripture for the day was being read, The Passion Story from Matthew's Gospel, I Zentangled a piece that depicted the story for me. Thank you so very much.

thanks plumhill2001 - I was introduced to zentangles in a social group not long after I started on this site and the leader of the group would give us a tangle to use each week. This was before the amazing 'Tanglepatterns.com' site existed so we just browsed the web for other enthusiasts and their creations.
I look back on my creations from those days (over a decade ago now :shocked:) and shudder :)

My cards for this swap were mailed April 14 - right when postage worldwide went kaput so I have no idea when they will arrive. Most of the things that I mailed around that time have now arrived so fingers crossed. . .

AngelJoy
06-18-2020, 12:25 PM
I'm praying! Not today, though. Hopefully tomorrow! :) I built in enough time (the 90 day limit) to be able to wait a while for your cards before swapping. I was leery of the way the mail was (or wasn't) running at the time I set the swap up.

AngelJoy
06-22-2020, 06:02 PM
