This summer, I have been participating in the Travelling Tangles Project. As stated on the Travelling Tangles Facebook Page…
Travelling Tangles is a collaborative project that aims to show how the Zentangle® method can bring people from around the world closer to one another. The idea is that you will draw on an original Zentangle tile but only finish the drawing half-way. Then you will send it off to another person for him/her to complete it. In exchange, they too will half finish a tile and send it to you for you to complete. Both you and the other person will then each keep the tile you have received.
Within the group, you can swap tiles as your please or there are organized monthly themed swaps. After months of seeing beautiful tiles scroll across my news-feed, I finally had the courage in July to sign up to swap tiles. July’s themed Swap was Printemps and Lollipops. The details outlined by the organizer/creator, Stephanie Jennifer, were as follows….
July 20th marks National Lollipop Day, so to celebrate, I'd like you to use the swirly Printemps in your tile(s). Printemps is such a basic yet versatile tangle. I hope you have fun using it. If you're not one that likes Printemps, July also marks America's Independence Day and France's Bastille Day. Both countries' flags use the colours blue, white, and red, so use one or more of those colours in your tile. :D.

A second tile from Singapore from a different swap buddy. She started it and I finished it.
For August, the themed swap was Singapore. The details outline by the organizer/creator, Stephanie Jennifer were as follows….
After celebrating America's Independence Day and France's Bastille Day in July, we're now going to celebrate Singapore's National Day. It happens on the 9th of August. :) August also marks both the birthday of my mother, Joni Toh, and my birthday. And yes, we both live in Singapore, too.So for this month, I'd like you to use Singapore Sling or Naida in your tiles. If neither of those tangles catch your fancy, use the colours of Singapore's flag, red and white, in your tile.

1/2 started tiles sent to me that I finished.
I am really enjoying the Travelling Tangles Project and I look forward to future swaps. Hopefully, back to school season won’t be too busy and I will be able to continue swapping!
