ATC swap: zentangle style!

It was fun!
I got to meet a few local artists, trade ATCs and I had fun shopping for handmade papers, a weakness of mine. I also got a new book, Zentangle 3. It has quite a few interesting new patterns/tangles for me to try out. A few yards of May Arts ribbons and a package of Grunge paper that was on sale rounded off the morning nicely. Have you tried Tim Holtz's Grunge paper? Please let me know what you have done with it! And enjoy a few photos from this morning at Keeton's, below. Click on any of them for a larger photo.

I decided to add a coat of self-leveling gel medium to protect my ATCs.
This is what I brought to the swap meet - my first IN-Person one!
I met and traded with Susan on the left, Bonnie on the right, and that is my Zentangle instructor, patsy Monk  in the middle. Thanks to her for organizing this! 
some trading going on at Keeton's . . . 
The B/W cards in front are some I received in trade - i love the pencil one!

The ATCs I had left over on the left (this was a small swap) and what I received in trade, so cool!  I kept the ATC on the bottom left with the green "seaweed" as Steven calls it; to give to him - his favorite I made.
ATCs patsy is making for a large swap of teachers, using paint chips to tangles on. Traditional zentagles are not done with color added like I did.
Of course, I had to be different!! ; ^ )
it was a lot of fun - the shopping too!! How was your weekend?
