UPDATE: I was reviewing the list of participants and found that many do not have a well filled out profile. Please, if you are interested in joining this swap, please ensure your profile is well filled out, especially if you are unrated or are new. Also, you must have logged on within the past 7 days. Failure to do so means I will need to ban you from joining. Sorry, but I want to protect my swappers.

I just found out about Zentangle and I am sure there are lots of others out there like me. I don't want anyone disappointed by an amateur zentangle so this swap is for those of us with less experience. Ofcourse, experienced zentanglers can join but you need to rate a 5 even if what you receive is not at your level.

So, for this swap, you will have 3 partners and you will zentangle a bookmark for each. You can make a bookmark from cardstock at whatever size you want, but, remember, its a BOOKMARK. The ones I have made are around 2 inches by 7 inches not including a tassle. You can also take a bookmark you have and cover it with paper. Embellish as you see fit. Anything goes!

Have fun and don't get stressed but do send something you would like to receive.

I found a package of blank book marks with tassels at Hobby Lobby which I thought was awesome.

Oh Yeah, actually I have some blank ones too, but they are a weird yellow colour.

Cool! I made my first two, but don't like them so its back to the drawing board!

Is this similar to an ATC? I haven't found what a Zentangle is. I just found out about ATCs and love them. I use to live near a Hobby Lobby and I sure do miss it. No craft stores around here.

Not really. A bookmark, is just that, a bookmark and the size isn't as important. An ATC must be an exact size 2.5 x 3.5 I believe. Zentangle is an art form, almost like, dare I say, doodle art, it is taking a shape and filling it with a pattern. That might not be the best description but if you look on youtube and search for it you will find some interesting videos. Also try tanglepatterns.com too. There are also books but I haven't found any. It is a pretty cheap hobby, just need paper and like a micron pen, some use a ultra fine tip sharpie. Good Luck.

Even when size and a paper are free, are they OK? There is no unified paper which is called cardstock in Japan. Is the similar thing also OK?

I don't have a problem with free paper as long as it is sturdy and you can zentangle it and it comes out looking like a bookmark.
