For this swap we will be doing zentangles on top of watercolor backgrounds you create.

  • You are sending ONE handmade ATC to TWO partners

  • You simply need to do some sort of watercolor background on a ATC sized piece of watercolor paper (hot or cold press - sender's choice).

  • Colors are senders choice.

  • It doesn't have to be any fancy techniques.. Just splashing on different colors can create some amazing backgrounds. I like to do a whole sheet of watercolor paper and then cut it up into pieces, but you can do whatever works for you.

  • THEN - you will zentangle on top of the background once it is completely dry.

  • Subject matter will also be sender's choice.

  • Please make sure to use sturdy watercolor paper - not flimsy computer paper. If you do watercolor background on anything other than watercolor paper - it will not only tear up the paper but also buckle it. Sometimes watercolor paper does buckle - there are techniques you can find online to straighten the paper back out.

  • No multiple and/or recent 1's or 3's.

  • Newbies allowed on a case by case basis

  • I reserve the right to ban anyone I deem questionable.

  • If you have ANY questions please PM me.. I am not on sb every day and hate to miss a question/issue you might be having.

Here are some links to easy watercolor background techniques (but there are tons and tons of others you can find by googling) - you dont have to use these but you can if you wish:

Just noticed that it states 1 partner in the list up top but in the directions it says one ATC to two partners????
